Going Red with Kendra Scott Tonight!

Hi Friends,

I am so excited this morning because today kicks off a long few days of birthday celebrating.  Don't get me wrong, I am normally not a birthday person at all!! However, I think transitioning into a new decade feels a little different and I am going to soak in the last days of my 20's and celebrate the heck out of this weekend with my friends and I just can't wait.

Tonight I am celebrating the start of my birthday weekend with Kendra Scott and the American Heart Association and I can't think of a better place with a more important message to kick off the fun! February is Go Red for Women Month and I recently learned that cardiovascular diseases kill about one woman every 80 seconds and about 80% of cardiovascular diseases may be preventable.  Last year, I touched on some heart issues that my mom had been dealing with and how important, as women, it is to be our own biggest advocate.  The last few months, she has been having trouble again and I have been so proud to watch her advocate for herself to ensure that she gets the care that she needs.  Yesterday, she received a heart monitor to make sure that her heart is working properly and I am thrilled that tonight's event will benefit the American Heart Association.

It is highly likely that I will be wearing this exact outfit tonight (please don't judge).  I don't know about you, but when I find an outfit that I love, I wear the heck out of it!  And I love these pants and can't get enough of them!! I have really been into high waist trousers lately, but they also come in a mid rise version.  The fabric on these is so so soft.  This blouse had me at "hello" ruffles, flowers, and a bow? and a price point under $60, game over!  My Kendra Scott earrings are from their Go Red collection and as I mentioned here 20% of proceeds will be donated to AHA and will be a great way to support if you are not able to make tonight's event.  Hope to see you there!! Please see details below. xoxo

A New York Minute

Hi Friends,

My trip to New York and my few days at fashion week flew by!! A super quick trip made shorter because of flight cancellations, but the long girls weekend in the city with my mom was an absolute blast.  Also, I think it was the perfect introduction to fashion week for me.  This was my first time experiencing fashion week shows and events, and I have to admit that I was beyond intimidated at the idea of going initially.  

Since I missed about 50% of my planned events and shows (talked more about it in this post), I packed as much into Saturday as I could! The first thing on my list was the ShopStyle Social House event.  Once I arrived, my initial hesitation of not knowing anyone or not having the funkiest clothes was immediately put at rest.  I met new friends and old (like Maggie from Blush and Blooms and Emily from Vita Brillanti who I met at Create and Cultivate last year).  We explored the fun event and each got a a cute monogrammed Gigi New York file folder and browsed the clothes that were available for borrow for the week - it was like a giant closet... so fun!   After the event I met up with Lauren Bloom, the sweetest photographer from Dallas and we shot this look.  

I ran to our hotel for a quick outfit change and went to a fun happy hour that Maggie organized for everyone.  As I have mentioned before, my favorite part about this industry is the great connections you can make with people from all over! 

Next, I went to the Julianno Bass show and got to bring my momma!  We loved her gorgeous gowns and tailored jumpsuits.  Finally, (I told you it was a long day!!) mom surprised me with tickets to the live show of SNL!! So we stopped for a quick bite at The Standard (yummmm), and scooted off to 30 Rock!  

When I was deciding what to wear, I wanted something that felt true to my girly style with a little edge and thought this skirt ($44) was perfect! There are only a few left in the white I am wearing (also comes in navy)!  My turtleneck ($39) is the softest shirt that have and sleek enough for a skirt or loose enough to wear with jeans.  These boots were great for walking around all day - although I really wanted to wear heels, it just did not make sense since 1. freezing and 2. I was going to be running around all day!  

I love these earrings from Kendra Scott - they go with everything and I love even more that 20% of proceeds are currently going to the American Heart Association which I think is such an important organization! For local friends, I will be celebrating my 30th with Kendra Scott and the American Heart Association next Wednesday, Feb. 22nd at the Cherry Creek store 5-7 p.m. Please join us for some drinks, treats, and shopping for a great cause of course!  Hope to see you there!!
