Schoolboy Style

When I saw this blazer at Banana Republic I knew I had to snatch it up upon the immediate. Thankfully it was during a grand labor day sale, making it 40% off! I have a feeling it's going to be a major favorite in my closet this fall. I added in a pop of color with this yellow blouse, and because I'm a girl who can hardly move without a print present, I popped in a little stripe action through these fun little j.crew pumps.
 


 


This weekend has been all about preparing for NYFW. Part of me can hardly wait. The other part of me is already thinking "oops I forgot my toothbrush" and 400 bazillion other things that are absolutely totally necessary to function whilst buzzing about our country's fashion capital for a few days. Truly though I'm feeling worlds more prepared this time, my second time around. I've already got each outfit fully shopped, purchased, and laying together with its accessory friends up on the guest bed. I can't even believe the trip is just a couple of days away! I'll be keeping you up to date right here on the blog! As well as on all those social media channels of mine. So if you're not already following on Instagram (username: lindseyherzog) & Twitter (username: lindsey_herzog), do it do it. Follow along for live coverage from the fashion shows, glimpses of shopping trips, snaps from blogger meet-ups, and of course photos of yours truly galavanting about the glorious big apple!

My Fair Lady at the Guthrie



 




 
To celebrate our 5-year anniversary, Patrick and I went to dinner at the St. Paul Grille and My Fair Lady at The Guthrie Theatre. It's one of my favorite Audrey Hepburn films and they brought it to life beautifully. One of the best parts of the Guthrie is the Endless Bridge. At intermission, the show continued outside. The skyline from the bridge looked incredible. Loved sharing the evening with Patrick, looking forward to many more anniversaries and all of the moments in between.

Fox 9 Interview: 5 Ways to Update your Basics for Fall


Ever wondered how to update your wardrobe for Fall without breaking the bank? Last Tuesday morning, I talked about just that on Fox 9's Morning News Show. We started with some of the most common basics that most women have in their wardrobes, 1) a white shirt and black pants, 2) a little black dress, & 3) skinny jeans. Watch the video below to see how we re-vamped these closet staples for Fall.



I'm so thankful to Fox 9 for having me on-set. All of those involved, behind and in front of the camera, were a pleasure to work with. And Ridgedale Center did a phenomenal job putting the outfits together using items from their stores. Also, how gorgeous are the models? It was so great of them to join in for the fun.

Head-to-Toe Shimmer






The fashion rules say to wear one thing that sparkles at a time. But rules are meant to be broken, so in the spirit of breaking rules, I broke it 3 times with my pale pink statement necklace against my sequined tank top, against my gold shimmer pants. Because the best part about fashion rules is finding new ways to break them.

Bows & Bouffants


Stripes, silk scarf, a bright color combination, printmixing, I'm really not sure if this outfit could get any more "me". It's great wearing those look that just feel totally "you". That is part of the reason why I love style so much and helping people find their personal aesthetic and make it happen daily. When we dress our best, feel awesome in what we're wearing, knowing that it's a totally "us" outfit, we walk with a little more spring in our step.

dress: forever 21 
bag: a French boutique

heels: jcpenney

Back-To-School Trends with Kare 11


Over the weekend, I had the opportunity to go on-air with Kare 11, like… TV. This was a first. And a very fun one at that! I talked about Back-to-School trends for kids of all ages. There were 8 different trends covered and all of the items were purchased from Ridgedale. Catch the trends and outfits in the full video of the segment. Rena Sargianopolous and the rest of the Kare 11 crew as well as the marketing team at Ridgedale Center were so kind and amazing to work with.




I thought I'd embrace the theme of the show and go a little classic scholarly with my outfit. Peaking of course at the plaid shoes. Mmhmm gotta love that schoolgirl plaid.
