I had a blast this season at New York Fashion Week, Spring Summer 2015! I extended my trip to stay an extra few days, the weather was perfect and I reunited with some of my favorite people! Not to mention the fabulous street style and runway shows I saw, of course!
These are the few of the many outfits I wore while buzzing around the great city of Manhattan during my favorite time of year. I stayed true to my personal style and decided not to go too over the top this season. When you are there for business, albeit the business of fashion, it is difficult to sacrifice style for comfort.
I seemed to have had a menswear inspired theme for most of my outfits, channeling a casual Summer suit most days. For the outfit details, see each image caption.
Until next season and the next adventure!!!

Queen of Coney Island

Another mandatory stop during this trip to NYC for Fashion Week, especially while the weather was beautiful....Coney Island! I have been wanting to go for years. So I rounded up my girls and we headed off on the train to the famed coast line of New York!
I had 'Off to the Races' by Lana Del Rey in my head most of the train ride while we whirled through Brooklyn all the way to the last stop.
Think of Coney Island as the East Coast's Santa Monica. Only less tourists and warmer water! I highly recommend eating at Nathan's Famous, a local legend where the hot dog eating contests take place. And no Coney Island trip would be complete with out a show at the Coney Island Circus Sideshow where you will be greeted by the ever fabulous Dr. Strange.
After spending the day there and watching the sunset with the ferris wheel in the near horizon and beach behind me, it was an epic way for me to end my New York trip...this time around.
