Neon in New York - Among Other Things

Neon in New York

Hello from New York! Fashion Week has been an absolute whirlwind. I’ve had no concept of time/day/year/etc since the moment I’ve touched down at LaGuardia airport, but I realized last night that it’s Monday and I owe you a post.

On Saturday, I spent the day at Lincoln Center, the mecca of Fashion Week and that big white building you see in the movies. In between shows, I lingered (loitered?) outside the tents people watching for a bit.

I noticed that this season is a bit more dressed down than in year’s past. Most street style photographers were drawn to layered, neutral styles and untraditional pairings. Think blouses, booties, shorts, a vest and a jacket. Or a striped jacket with patterned pants.

My utilitarian BCBG Bronnen jacket and neon United Nude pumps are the two favorite pieces I brought with me (in my 62 lb bag) to New York.

I’ve styled them a few ways for a number of different looks: utilitarian chic, like above; and with a black tank and leather leggings for a more laid-back, edgy on-the-go vibe. I’ll probably wear them one more time here in New York, perhaps with a sequined top, black shorts and envelope clutch.

Sidenote: A huge thank you to Mary from MAS fashion for snapping these pics. I love seeing you and am glad we had the chance to hang in New York!

    I love what neon shoes can do for an outfit! The neon trend is fun, but it’s hard to pull off. The small dose in the shoes is perfect!
