Fashion Week is such an exciting time of year! There is always something to do, somewhere to go, people to see! It’s kind of like Christmas, but without all of the terrible presents you have to pretend to like. Just a bunch of terrible outfits we have to pretend to admire instead… ;]

This was such a fantastic day! The weather was supposed to be crappy and rainy, but it ended up being pretty beautiful, except for the heat which was borderline unbearable, ha. I was fortunate enough to attend a blogger brunch hosted by TheVane and catch up with some old blogger friends while meeting and making some fabulous new ones! Then we wandered over to the library on a last minute decision to see Nigel Barker speak. Let me tell you, that man is a beautiful human being, but beyond that, he is incredibly brilliant and humble. It was a great opportunity!
I had a million outfit options for this particular day in the city, and I really had no idea that to wear. There is so much pressure to go out and buy a new designer outfit, right? I couldn’t deal with it, ha. I sifted through my closet and just grabbed a few of my favorite pieces. This J Crew top is light and comfortable, the skirt pops with its bright hue. And the shoes… well the shoes were a no brainer. An anniversary gift from my husband, they had to be worn! Side note: J Crew is having an awesome sale right now! Use code SHOPFORFALL at checkout to get 25% off full priced items and 30% off sale items. YAY!
As I said, we were all at a fun brunch hosted by TheVane at the Vanguard Wine Bar. There were so many delicious goodies to snack on! I am a huge fan of brunch food, but I mean, who isn’t? We were lucky to have this fantastic event sponsored by Air Optix and plenty of delicious beverages provided by Proximo Spirits! Here are a few pictures from brunch!
