Tomorrow marks the most wonderful, stressful, crazy & chaotic time of the year in NYC – Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.  As Nigel said in Devil Wears Prada, “…GIRD YOUR LOINS.”

I’m only kidding – Fashion Week is so much fun and entirely worth overthinking and overdoing yourself for. The only reason we stress ourselves out is because we want to attempt to be present every place we can. Until we perfect the art of teleportation, let the race against the clock from uptown to downtown resume.

We’ve been blessed with temperatures that make our faces turn blue this month, so thinking about warmer temperatures and the trends-to-be is a nice mental break from the frigidness. With this look, I’m not-so-secretly displaying what I intend to take with me into the new season: high-low maxi tops, leather below the waist, metallic details and gold chokers.

Obviously these pants will take a well deserved break and be substituted with a skirt option when the time comes. I’m stoked to get even more inspiration this entire week and hopefully receive confirmation that my sick and stereotypical craving for florals in spring isn’t a fashion faux pas. Shop similar below:

Ps, If you’re digging my gold choker, then you HAVE TO check out this amazing giveaway opportunity to win a curated gift box of (4) jewelry pieces I hand-selected for one lucky winner! Consider it a Valentine’s Day gift from your secret admirer, aka me & my girl Jen of Hanuel.


Inside this pretty box are four pieces that I found to be the best for a Minimalist Collection. The winner will receive her very own Cube Open choker, Horse Bit Cuff bracelet, Sophie Pearl Cuff ring and these gorgeous aqua earrings that aren’t even available online yet! Talk about exclusive ;]

I absolutely adore my beautiful jewels that are strikingly minimalist – yup, simple in form but bold in nature. They couldn’t be a better fit for my style aesthetic. You’re guaranteed to find something you LOVE on the site but here are the links to my jewels in case you feel like shopping. Please note that the gift box includes the necklace from my set below as well :]
