NYFW Look 1: How to Wear White After Labor Day

11:30 AM

          Hello everyone! It feels so good to be back after attending NYFW this past week for my second season. I definitely had to catch up on rest and sleep, since this southern girl forgot how much walking and stair climbing was required in the city, but I could not wait to share my experience with you all.

          When I was packing for NYFW I wanted to step a little out of my comfort zone and represent all aspects of my style, which pretty much includes what ever I feel like wearing at the moment. For day one I decided on an asymmetrical floral dress from H&M (now under $10)! I felt a little risky wearing white right after labor day, but I made it fall friendly by adding a leather jacket and black chunky heels. The key to wearing white after Labor day is to pair it with seasonably appropriate colors or elements like booties and cardigans.

Pairing my white floral dress with a leather jacket allowed me to add some edge to my look, while the ruffles and asymmetrical hemline kept it fun and flirty. It was definitely a nice blend between the two and the infamous blogger drape of my jacket brought the whole look together. Day one I attended the Pamella Roland show at Pier 59 Studios. She is known for her amazing gowns and I wanted to make sure that I wore an outfit that went with her overall vibe, which led me to this cute dress!

Moon and Lola hooked me up with accessories for the week and I loved the stacked look I was able to put together. For my next few posts if you see anything that you like make sure you use my discount code to receive 10% off of your purchase (AALSTON10).

          For running around the city, my Yosi Samra foldable flats were such a blessing! Wearing heels in the subway is definitely not the move and my ballet flats helped me commute seamlessly from shows to restaurants and sightseeing.
