Currently living in some form of blazer + shorts combo, with most of them following the variation above in black, gray, and white and muted color in shoes and/or bags. With lace-accented pieces making a return this autumn season, I thought I'd pull out my trusty ones from Madewell and pair them up with a new fitted blazer from ArticleAnd. Of course every fashion brand has forecasted this and of course I'm eyeing everything seemingly lace-y, especially some of the pieces with lace trims from Zara. See below for styles similar to the shorts above:

Fall beginnings

When we edge into fall, I always idealistically imagine myself in thick coats and beanies all season long. But let's be real, it hardly gets that cold here in LA... even in winter. Regardless, coats are fun to look at and who says you can't play a little digital dress up with them. Acne has always been and still is a favorite in the outerwear department, shearling, buckles, and leather accents and all. Dreamy. Clicky-click on the actual items to get to their product pages!

Welcoming crisper evenings and earlier sunsets as we reach closer to October and ultimately, the end of yet another year. Time flies, doesn't it? The months of summer always seemingly zip right on through, and the days of autumn close in quick. Steve and I caught a breather after dinner in downtown, right as the setting sun casted its amber-hued rays against the droning but calming small waves of water nearby. If this sounds the least bit nostalgic, it's probably because it is- I usually feel this way this time of the year.

Oops, forgot there was one more batch of photos from NY just a few weeks ago. On the last day Steven and I were there, it really started to warm up but luckily we got the opportunity to move around the city at our own pace and just got to explore a few eateries we haven't tried before. We had a few hours as our flight wasn't until late afternoon so we had breakfast, caught up with a friend, and walked around SoHo, where I got these amazing H&M boots from their Paris collection! We'd already packed up our luggage and I had no room left for clunky boots so I had to wear them to the airport. Not exactly how I like to do airport travel, but you gotta do what you gotta do. And now that NYFW-related posts are officially over for me... I'm looking forward to seeing what PFW has got to offer (as always)!

Rag & Bone SS14

Rag & Bone, NYFW, SS 14, Neon Blush, Spring Summer Fashion

The second day of NYFW for NJOY kicked off with an intimate brunch with Nasty Gal, with Rebecca Minkoff in the middle of it, and ending the Fashion Week-related string of events with Rag & Bone. I didn't get to snap any photos from the two earlier events, but luckily got around to it for Rag & Bone's show at the Moynihan Station.Rag & Bone, NYFW, SS 14, Neon Blush, Spring Summer FashionRag & Bone, NYFW, SS 14, Neon Blush, Spring Summer FashionRag & Bone, NYFW, SS 14, Neon Blush, Spring Summer FashionRag & Bone, NYFW, SS 14, Neon Blush, Spring Summer FashionRag & Bone, NYFW, SS 14, Neon Blush, Spring Summer FashionRag & Bone, NYFW, SS 14, Neon Blush, Spring Summer FashionRag & Bone, NYFW, SS 14, Neon Blush, Spring Summer FashionRag & Bone, NYFW, SS 14, Neon Blush, Spring Summer FashionRag & Bone, NYFW, SS 14, Neon Blush, Spring Summer Fashion
I'm always such a huge fan of the work of Marcus and David- their collections are consistently infused with that ultimate cool chic, and there are so many wearable but unique pieces to be found. The shimmery, slinky silver dresses, the deep-v varsity sweater and the textured leather crop top(!!) had my eyes glued. Oh and not to mention the badassery that is the sheer, striped overall skirt... so good, and black done right for spring.

The rest of the night zipped by with stops for dinner with Mexican food, a quick rooftop party at The Standard, and a seriously good time at Mister H. Above: wearing Rag & Bone top and Elizabeth & James pants from Madison, and Proenza Schouler PS11 mini.

As Wednesday drew to a close, I got onto a plane and took a red-eye to NYC. I'm not sure how I feel about red-eyes; I feel like from LA to NY, they make perfect sense, but I can never sleep on a plane ride so the timing is sort of futile. Anyhow, landed in the wee hours on Thursday and booked it from the airport to dropping off luggage, to grabbing a quick breakfast, to the Lincoln Center to cover the first show of Fashion Week for NJOY: BCBG Max Azria. In between errands back home in LA and rushing through NY, I guess I didn't really plan any outfits for fashion week. Thursday felt right in these silky A.L.C. pants, comfy mid-heeled boots from Article&, the trusty Super Dupers for shielding my tired eyes, and a Zara beanie for my unkempt hair fresh off the plane.

BCBG Max Azria always kicks off NYFW right. Their collections are seamlessly fun and vibrant, and this SS14 set was no different. I loved the tailoring and the menswear-inspired silhouettes, but of course with that BCBG feminine twist. Shoes were killer (as always). I've had the pleasure of meeting Max and Lubov a few times at their gorgeous home in LA and I think a part of their love as a duo is what makes BCBG Max Azria continually fascinating.
