Street Style: Fall Accessories


There are so many places to find new trends, but one of the easiest and one of my favorite places to look is right outside my door! New York City is the perfect place to spot new trends on the street. This week, I took to the streets on the search for this fall's latest trends in shoes and accessories.  I took pictures of the street style trends and then went online to look for the items and other items alike. The most popular shoes and accessories I saw while I was out were blanket scarves, ankle booties, lace up flats and backpack purses. Take a look below to see the street style pictures and for the links to similar items I've rounded up! Oh, and make sure to keep your eyes open the next time you are out and about- you never know what street style trends will inspire you!

The Fall Must-Have

With the fall season approaching, I am always excited to try new trends.  This season, one of my must-have pieces is a blanket cape.  The blanket cape is an effortless piece that is perfect for staying warm and cozy in the brisk fall weather.  It isn't too heavy, which makes it an easy layering piece.  The blanket cape can be worn so many different ways and for so many different purposes. Layer it over a basic long sleeve shirt, a pair of jeans, and add a pair of flats or riding boots for an easy going, casual look, or belt it around your waist, to accentuate your shape, and add a pair of heeled booties for a dressier look! Either way, you can't go wrong with the blanket cape! I've rounded up a few of my favorite capes and have linked them below. Be sure to check them out and don't be afraid to try one for yourself!

Essie // Seventeen Event

On Monday, my friends and I had the opportunity to attend the Essie Fall 2015 Collection Preview Event, hosted by Seventeen Magazine at the Hearst Tower.  The event showed off the six new shades inspired by the rock 'n roll era. The new shades range from saturated fall hues, like a burnt cherry red, With the Band (my personal favorite!), to a metallic cobalt blue, Bell-Bottom Blues, and a sparkly stone gray, Frock 'n Roll.

Everything from the candy bar, to the mocktail bar, to the flower arrangements incorporated the colors of the new fall collection.  It was also a great chance to mingle with some fellow Essie lovers, including the beautiful Carly Heitlinger of The College Prepster! All around, the event was a great way to introduce the new shades and to get excited for the upcoming fall season! Check out the pictures below to get a glimpse of the event and make sure to try out the amazing new collection!
