Welcome to Silverwood Park! I go in spurts with this gorgeous place. It's this pretty little park right by our house. Life gets so busy and it's pretty tucked away so sometimes I forget about it. But lately, Patrick and I are on a going-almost-every-day spurt. We're waiting to catch the leaves in their most colorful time because the view here is stunning. So far the season has been glorious. Mostly because we get fall colors with summer temps. It's the best of both worlds! I mean, we had 80-degree days this weekend. If we stay on this path, maybe we can anticipate 50-degree days for winter? Trust me, I wouldn't mind a bit.

When prepping outfits for NYC, I knew this Tommy Hilfiger skirt had to be worn to the Tommy show. It's one of my favorite skirts, especially around this time of year. Tartan plaid is super classic and I freshened it up with an off-shoulder crop top. There's always got to be a little bling somewhere. Enter Badgley Mischka heels (c/ o Zappos) and emerald necklace. The Etienne Aigner leopard and burgundy bag fit right in with the city schoolgirl vibe.

The Tommy Hilfiger show was basically mind-blowing. Immediately upon walking in, we felt like we were at a music festival. The stage was set and ready with a full-on rock band. The turf complete with floral pathways and lights completed the ambience of a free-spirited outdoor concert. And it all came together when the models came out. Each outfit could easily have been a Coachella girl hanging out in between bands. These three military-esque outfits were my favorite. I love the structure and polish of them. And it only further confirms the notion that I need a cape for the cooler months. Stat!
If ever there was Candyland for fashion people, it was the Dennis Basso show. The feminine flounce of frocks, the lush textures and elegant embroidery… all so incredibly darling and chic. The fur looks so modern and upbeat with the new cropped and cut-off silhouette. I also adore the color palette.

The day I wore this was one of my favorites of NYFW. Actually as I write this post I'm watching someone I met there that day now talking about swim team and Hannah's mother's arrest on Pretty Little Liars. Shay Mitchell was even more gorgeous in person than on-screen. And super nice too. I met her at Zimmerman which is a collection that majorly blew me away. There were a couple of satin pant suits that were tailored impeccably. They looked insurmountably elegant. Even more jaw-dropping were the billowing asymetrical tops with more luxe and beautiful fabrics. I was way impressed, yet again. Here, take a look at the photos I took from my spot, just right below.
Also on this day was the Mark and Estel show. It was this cool girl vibe. Like every model that walked the runway was a rockstar's daughter now livin it up in the city. And this show had a crazy surprise. When the final walk was about to start, instead of models walking down the catwalk, the designers came out with microphone and guitar, and performed one of their songs. Everyone in the crowd was lovin it. My favorite look was the white blouse with the black neck tie. It was really chic.
Hope your Monday goes beautifully!

This plaid co-ord is everything. I found it at a local boutique called Cliche, the day before I left for NYC and knew immediately it had to go in my suitcase for the trip. It's a bit sixties, definitely has a preppy overtone with the plaid and the matchy-matchy element, and all around it's just a perfect fit for moi. And so is Central Park, you guys. I love this beautiful place and saw a different angle of it on this year's stroll than last year's. It's such a huge park it's fun to explore a little bit at a time.
