What I Wore: KCFW Fall/Winter 2016

Hello lovelies! I'm back today with a new outfit post! I know I've been severely lacking in the blogging department but life has been crazy, stupid busy and I just can't seem to catch up with it! Ever feel like that? Anyways, during KCFW a couple of weeks ago I managed to have some friends snap a few photos of my outfits for me! A HUGE thank you to Ritz and Sierra for doing so, you guys are the best! 

I attended two of the three nights of runway shows and typically each night gets dressier and fancier than the night before. I always have such a hard time picking out outfits for this event because I know all my blogger friends are gonna have knock out outfits and I wanna not look like a potato next to them. I usually stick to neutrals with a pop of color or patterns which can be seen here when I went to my first season. This year to switch it up I added texture to my outfits, incorporating leather and fringe into the looks and I think they turned out smashingly! See for yourself!

Keeping it casual but dressy I opted for pattern play and a little texture with the striped skirt and floral heels and leather jacket. This white tee is my FAVORITE of all time. It's super comfy, the perfect length and tucks wonderfully into jeans. This bag has been my go-to lately. It looks like a Rebecca Minkoff but it's under $30 #praise. It's got an outside pocket for le phone, a crossbody strap, fits in the crook of your arm and is suuuuuper roomy. I managed to fit a full size wallet, plus my DSLR camera, a baby water bottle and all the rest of my purse crap in there with room to spare. It's kinda amazing.

I love going to Union Station and taking photos up on the balcony. It has the prettiest natural light and backdrop of Union Station. It's the perfect spot for outfit photos! Before the show Ritz and I headed up there to snap some. Saturday is the dressiest of the three nights so I had to bring my A-game. I had been DYING to wear this fringe tunic top from Banana Republic (sadly now sold out :( ) and these leather leggings (also sold out but I found a dupe pair) and KCFW seemed like the perfect occasion! Keeping with the all black I wore my black heels. To add some color I added this fun white cocktail ring and a bold red lip. I loved this look, classic, sophisticated but still fun! I felt very flapper-esque! 

Some tips on how I dress for fashion week is to look at magazines- see what celebrities wear to special events, check out store mannequins, head to Pinterest and check out Instagram and see what the street/blogger style is! 

The most important thing is to dress for yourself, if you like it wear it!
