NYFW Look: Florals and Black

Hi all,

We're winding down the recap of all NYFW outfits and will soon start looking at London and Milan oufits - oh my! Yes, I have been confirmed to attend London and Milan this year, and I'm extremely excited as it'll be my first time going overseas. Be on the lookout next week!

But we're not quite done with NYFW. This outfit was a comfortable, chic look and the images were captured while I was between shows at the Spring Place rooftop located in TriBeCa. The building is one of my favorites in all of NYC and the rooftop is amazing - I've been to several events and shows here recently and you can apply to be a member of Spring Place and have your own working area too.

Floral Top from Veronica Beard

For the outfit itself though, let's go from top to bottom: This blue floral top from Veronica Beard was one of my favorite pieces to wear during Fashion Week, and unlike some of my other outfits, this is wearable 24/7 - 365. Florals are one of the biggest trends we are seeing for Fall (and you know it'll work perfectly for Spring too - this one in blue is perfect. While here I styled it with a black skirt, it can also be worn rather easily with denim or trousers making it an incredibly versatile piece to be worn pretty much anywhere, be it work, weekend or date.

NYFW with Farfetch

Back to the skirt, however. This cute black skirt comes courtesy of Just Cavalli from Farfetch. The asymmetric style is a fun spin on the classic black leather skirt - a wardrobe staple for all of us. 

When it came to shoes, I opted for these great vinyl booties from Sigerson Morrison that I thought offered a bit of height and were just super cute. My recommendation though: order a half-size up as they do run a bit small. These can also be styled over denim perfectly if the skirt and shoe combo isn't your cup of tea.

I also sat down with Farfetch for a quick interview to talk all things NYFW - trends, highlights and must-haves.

Finally, we're talking about the bag - the mini bag, that is. Mini bags are huge this year, you've seen them all over. It's true that they may not seem to be the most practical (real talk: they're not), they can still be fun for certain events. This one is super fun, but does only really carry a lipstick, maybe a credit card/ID combination and house keys. You're most likely looking at holding your phone, which sometimes is not a big deal. But they're cute and I couldn't resist getting this one.

But so you like the bag, but can't handle the impracticality? I have a solution for you: How about you use it as a coin purse and style it outside of a larger bag? Think of it as an accessory for your purse!

Which piece is your favorite and will you be styling a mini bag as a coin purse? Let me know in the comments below!
