What am I doing posting about the beach during the first week of Fall!? Well, when you’re a mom of an on-the-go baby girl, sorting through and editing photos from a week-long vacation kind of gets put on the back burner. I finally found some time to sit down and go through the oodles of pictures we snapped of our family and Annie while in Florida. So today I’m sharing a peek into our trip to the Gulf Coast! But let’s be honest, these are mostly just adorable pictures of Annie frolicking around on the beach. And I can’t help myself!!
For my a night out in The Big Apple, you can’t go wrong with a bright red dress. I’ve been the biggest fan of Rent the Runway for years now. I used to subscribe to their unlimited program before I had Annie and I thought it was the bee’s knees! It wasn’t until I went to their flagship store in NYC that I realized how truly amazing Rent the Runway can be, especially if you live in New York!
I’m chatting below about this look and what the occasion was that called for a fancy red party dress. I’m also sharing why I love to rent the runway when I travel. Plus, if you live in or are visiting New York anytime soon renting with RTR is even easier!
“Every Year The Women Of New York leave the past behind and look forward to the future. This is known as FASHION WEEK.” – Carrie Bradshaw a la Sex And The City.
Not going to lie, that little quote of Carrie’s popped in my head one or two times while I was in New York last week. Every time I would hear Carrie’s voice saying it, I almost wanted to pinch myself to prove that I was really there. Me, little old Alice Kerley from Houston, sitting in an actual SEAT to watch a runway show at New York Fashion Week. I’m still in the “was this trip really real … how did this all actually happen?” phase.
If it wasn’t for all of the other bloggers that paved the way (and shared their knowledge with me) I would never have made the trip. So for them, I am truly thankful! And for my mom too. So so so thankful. She flew up with me and babysit Annie the entire time! Major props to her for navigating NYC with a seven-month-old while I played dress up in SOHO. (Love ya mom!)
Today I’m chatting about several things: this outfit and what it was like to walk into my first runway show at New York Fashion Week.
I’ve been working on my Galveston guide for what feels like months & months. Well, folks, it’s finally here, my Galveston Travel Guide!! While it’s more of a travel diary at first (got snap happy on a recent trip!), be sure to scroll on down below where I’m rounding up ALL of my favorite spots in this coastal getaway.
Shop the Look:
Galveston is just about an hour south of Houston and once you’re there you feel like you’re much further away. It’s hard to believe that the swaying palm trees, chirping seagulls, and crashing waves are so close to home. While Galveston makes for the perfect day trip from Houston, it also makes for an amazing weekend getaway. With so many fun things to do and see, spending the night on Galveston Island is a whole lotta fun!
New York Fashion Week was seriously like one big dream. Attending the runway shows, the rooftop parties and strutting our street style down the street with all of the other fashionistas, I’m already mentally planning my next trip! I have to say, my favorite part of the entire experience was seeing what everyone else was wearing. Not just the models! Stylistas from all across the globe flocked to Skylight Clarkson Square in SOHO with an array of outfits you truly don’t see in everyday life. While many of the looks were ones that would be quite daring to replicate for happy hour with the girls, there were prevalent trends here & there that anyone could rock .. anywhere! Sharing details on ten of my favorites below!
Happy Tuesday! I took a bit of an unintentional blogging break this past week while in NYC. Turns out that when you have a jam packed NYFW schedule AND a baby to care for (even with the help of your fabulous mom) finding time to actually blog becomes non-existent. I seriously had the best time in New York and it was such a “bucket list” trip. There were times I just wanted to pinch myself while I was sitting front row at some of the shows! I’ll have so many posts up soon recapping the trip, sharing all of my thoughts and whatnot all on what it’s like to attend New York Fashion Week.
But until then, I’m keeping it casual with an easy laidback look that is perfect to transition from summer into fall. More on that below!
