Punky Punch on the Lower West Side.

Hey there, babes. Happy Wednesday, and as always, reporting from Los Angeles. Here's just the first of my flashbacks from my whirlwind trip to New York City. I promise, I will share a run down of my first Fashion Week. But for now, let's talk some trends I am stoked about for the upcoming season.

One of staples when fall arrives are a solid pair of chunky black boots. Each year they have transformed- from a tomboy combat boots, a simplistic chelsea boot, and this year a chunky 60's inspired platform. I scored this boot at Zara (which always has surprisingly high quality shoes). When in NYC (and fashion week) it is essential to have a comfortable shoe. I walked 10+ miles each day, and these shoes made that possible. My other accessory of the moment is this 'captain hat' from H&M. I adore the vintage attitude it adds to any look. It's a little punky, and I love pairing it with a look that is ULTRA feminine. 

This For Love & Lemons dress is the perfect transition for fall. I loved the moody colors, and butterfly lacelace appliqu├ęs. I added a mock turtleneck for the cooler evening temperatures. I always like to find juxtaposition in my style. This look has its girly and frilly textures. But it still has some type of edge- a bulky shoe, and dark color palette. I love to see how NYC influences my ideas around styling. Especially on the lower west side, my style gets a little more rock 'n roll and little funky. I spent a few evenings in this part of the city with friends. Drinking pints of beers, listening to jazz music at The Fat Cat, staying out way past a reasonable hour, waving cabs in the crisp night air back uptown. I am a little more rebellious on the east coast. And this energy, definitely, transcends into my style.
