My Fall Fashion Essentials

With it just beginning to get cold outside, I wanted to share with you five of my fall essentials aka the items I cannot live without when it is just beginning to get cold outside. The first one is the all-time classic black bootie. It is something so easy and second nature to get drawn to when it gets cold out.

The next big essential in my life during the fall is my teddy bear coat. It has to be the softest jacket of them all! These jackets cause you feel like you are wrapped in a blanket all day!

Another essential that I am drawn to is the chunky knit sweater. It is a staple piece during the fall to pair with everything. As a little tip when it comes to styling a sweater, layering is a fun aspect that spices up any outfit.

NYFW Day 3: Son Jung Wan, Christian Cowan, and Jonathan Simkhai

Day 3 of NYFW was actually my fifth day in the city! If you count the two days of photo shoots, LIM college panel discussion with Fashion Mingle, and the ever evolving events that happen during fashion week. So you can probably imagine the exhaustion at that point! Nevertheless actual day 3 of shows were nothing shy of amazing! Jonathan Simkhai being my all time favorite of the entire week.

After several seasons of attending NYFW shows, I think the presentation style “shows” are my favorite. Not only are they more personal but they give you the chance to appreciate the designs and then mingle and meet some of the best people in the industry! Jonathan Simkhai’s presentation was exactly that. However my absolutely favorite part was getting to see the behind the scenes. Seeing how the designer interacted with his models, the photographers, that event staff, his team, not only made me appreciate his brand, but him as a person in this industry.

I’ve heard some horror stories about designers and how they treat people. So seeing first hand the artist and the environment he creates with his team was truly impressive. Each season I gain more and more respect for those behind the scenes. Well cheers to another NYFW in the books!

NYFW Day 2

Michael Costello, Chromat, and Vivienne Hu

Day 2 started with the TRESemmé team over at Spring Studios. They gave me a super cute braid and loose tousled curls. Then I was off to the Michael Costello show. The show was filled with floral dresses, bold colors, and sexy silhouettes. The Chromat show was nothing less then amazing! Every season the show gets bigger and better. Vivienne Hu gave me serious spring fever! (already, yes!) The lace, bright pale pinks and yellows, I seriously need to get one of her pieces!

Kissimmee Trip Recap

      Experience              Kissimmee 

                    

Every time I think of Florida I think of Disney World, but after our trip to Kissimmee FL I now understand the why it is the vacation home capital of the world! We stayed at the beautiful Reunion Resort . The resort itself has so much to offer we could have spent the entire week just there! But we opted for some adventure from the moment we landed in Florida. 

Our first stop was the famous Fun Spot America! We raced go carts, played arcade games, and Zach took the plunge of a life time! Watch him ride the worlds tallest sky coaster! 

After a day of traveling and fun we headed to dinner at our resorts rooftop restaurant Eleven.  The food was amazing, and so was the view! 

After a night of great food, wine, and a hot bubble bath we woke up refreshed and ready for another adventurous day. So naturally that means we needed to see some gators, so we headed to Gatorland! Gatorland is home to some of the largest and oldest gators in the world! Literally never thought I would be so interested in gators but getting up close and personal with them gave me a new perspective!

Each day in Kissimmee was literally a non stop adventure! We shopped at the Orlando Vineland Premium Outlets, we explored & dined at Disney springs, we zip-lined for the first time at Forever Florida, drank wine & ate a ton of cheese at Island Grove Winery, we even got a pro golf lesson from former pro golfer Scott Downing at Celebrations golf club. Zach and I have never had that much fun packed into just five days! We wouldn't have been able to even think of doing half of the activities we did if it wasn't for Experience Kissimmee.  They were the best Florida guide, filling everyday with something so fun, so entertaining, and so memorable. I will never plan another trip to Kissimmee without the help from Experience Kissimmee.
