So I’ve been a terrible blogger! It’s been so crazy traveling and running Pretty Connected lately, I haven’t had any time to post! But fear not, we’ve been fully documenting our favorite Tomgirls non-stop on our instagram page, @inhisclothes.

Speaking of travel, I was recently in St. Louis where I shopped my face off at this amazing vintage clothing shop, Avalon Exchange located in the loop. That’s where I found this amazing Pendleton jacket. All I want for fall is plaid, plaid and more plaid!

Fall Walks with Ellie

{Shoes c/0 Rockport Total Motion Desert Boot, Top: Piperlime Printed Structured Top, Pants: Levi’s Black 535 Cutout Denim Leggings, Bag c/o MaryLai BBxML Stassi Clutch, Hat c/o Forever21}

One of my favorite things to do is take Aryka’s dog, Ellie (and our blogs mascot) for walks. And with the beautiful fall weather we’ve been having, I want to soak it up before the cold front hits! Some new purchases (for once everything I’m wearing is available with the exception of the hat! Links above), I’ve been ordering from Century 21’s website like it’s my job! I got these Levi’s Black 535 Cutout Denim Leggings for $30!

I’m also wearing my new MaryLai BBxML Stassi Clutch which I won at an event! It’s MaryLai’s first collaboration with couture bondage lingerie brand Bodybins and it’s embossed with stingray (and on sale for $100).  And I’m completing the outfit with the Rockport Total Motion Desert Boot, which are by far the most comfortable heels I’ve ever owned! Their Total Motion collection is designed to be as comfortable as your most technologically advanced sneakers and they completely deliver. You can learn more about the collection and their current sweepstakes for your chance to win shoes and a trip to Miami on my other prettyconnected.com

This week we’ve had some beautiful weather in NYC. And we’re taking this opportunity to transition some of our favorite summer pieces to fall. An easy way to do this is with layering and also if you’re not ready to give up your florals opting for darker ones.  Bring on an Indian Summer!!!

NYFW Street Style Rounds Up

I haven’t really embraced the art of asking people if I can take their photograph yet but in between running to shows for my other blog, I snagged some shots of some stylish ladies. There were a surprising amount of sneakers (especially Converse), tees and a personal shocker, Adidas Adilette Slides (how well did this girl pull them off?!?) being worn in the crowd. Here are a few looks I loved:

People On The Street: Hely Harris

We saw Hely at LIC Landing- a beautiful waterfront park in LIC on a sunny afternoon.  She, along with her lovely baby were catching the amazing city-scape.  She mentioned she had stolen her husband’s shirt for the day, and our ears immediately perked up.  This mommy-on-the-run doesn’t sacrifice style for practicality.  Comfort is key, and with Birkenstock’s being all the rage this season she paired them perfectly for a casual friday on the pier.

Athleta Crush of Adrenaline Fashion Show

Athleta rush of adrenaline

Nothing got me more in the mood get back into my workout Wednesday routine then Athleta’s Rush of Adrenaline fashion show. Kicking off fashion week, the fitness brand previewed their Spring 2015 collection it what was more of a dance, workout show, then a runway show — and it was awesome! I’ll take real, strong, fit, athletes over models any day of the week — the way they moved and worked the clothing was something else! (I put up a pretty cool video of a girl running in the air on my other blog’s instagram page, click HERE to watch). I also put a longer write up on my other blog, prettyconnected.com detailing the show. As for what I wore… easily the most comfortable fashion week outfit as of yet, Athleta Coaster Pant (seriously they are beyond soft and comfortable) and Chi Striped Muscle Tank.

Black and White in MinkPink (Just like Cara Delevinge)

Cara Delevingne MINKPINK pants with Michelle Rodriguez

Style Inspiration: Cara Delevinge in MINKPINK

Well kids, it’s fashion week, so while I’ve been rocking the @inhisclothes instagram page, I have been terrible about updating the blog! #fail. I have some big news though! Remember that Life & Style/InTouch Weekly Blogger competition I was in for a chance to win an advertorial with L.A. Colors in both magazines! Well I won! And in the last challenge, I had to pick 3 style icons and replicate their style head to toe (I hope you all remember my epic David Bowie!), and one of which was Cara Delevinge (you can see the post here). So in honor of fashion week, and that in my regular stalking of Cara online, I noticed we owned the same MINKPINK pants, I thought I’d have my style inspiration for this post, be dedicated to her.

We spotted Jenny Toth on a Monday afternoon, chilling with her adorable dog Whoopi (she was a little camera shy).  A fellow model and blogger, Jenny is one cool cat.  Her new decorating and home blog AptModa, is worth a look- the photos and content are amazing and will give you some major inspiration if you’re looking to update your own abode.
