If you're ever in need of a quick city escapade with a spectacular ending I would suggest Coney Island for many reasons. Supercool graffiti walls where you can snap amazing pics *wink*, tons of good food, rides, games and cheerful people everywhere and last but not least the glorious fireworks they have every Friday night. We had an absolutely lovely time there yesterday and I have to say I am literally obsessed with this off the shoulders, wide leg midi jumpsuit from Lulus I wore! It's something totally new for me but decided to give it a try and I'm so happy I did :) it's flattering, super comfy and so chic with all the ruffles and bow. All the summer vibes.
Every year attending fashion week becomes more and more fun! I am so thankful to be able to travel to this amazing city and attend all these fun shows and events and being able to share all of this with you guys makes it all a hundred times better!
My first day in New York turned out to be pretty full: a nail and makeup appointment in the morning at Caravan styling studio to get me ready for the Control Sector fashion show in the afternoon and the Lulu's Style Studio Party at night. I also had the time to have a yummy lunch with my babe Yana and of course take tons of #foodporn pics.
For my first NYFW day I chose a simple yet elegant and trendy look: all black and white with lace and Chanel.

Thank you Caravan for making me pretty and spoiling me with a bag full of fun goodies!
Lunch at The Growler was INSANE!
After lunch I went straight to the Style Fashion Week fashion show where I attended the Control Sector fashion show (as I'm sure you've seen on my InstaStory!).
Lastly, I ended this first day on the best way possible: attending the Lulu's Style Studio influencers party. Between good music, fashion sketches, fun goodies, an open bar and cool giveaways I had such an amazing night and met some fantastic fellow bloggers!
Even though I am in the Caribbean already I still have a couple of looks from NYC to share with you guys. This was last week, when my friend Yana from Bergdorf Princess and I went to the city for a girls' date complete with shopping and eating out. The weather was perfect, a bit chilly when windy but just warm enough to still be able to wear skirts with no tights. I am feeling the 70s vibes lately, listening to Uptown Funk by Bruno Mars over and over again and it also shows in my outfit and hairstyle choices!
Ring: YSL - Watch: Michael Kors - Bracelet: The Peach Box
New York City is starting to get a little chillier day by day which means that layering season is finally here! Don't get me wrong I absolutely love summer and all its cute and colorful summer dresses but the crisp weather brings on so many possibilities with layering, mixing and matching.
Different colors, varying textures and disparate details bring instant sophistication to any outfit.
Here I embraced the lace-up-everything trend on my top, the fringe-rage on my shoes and added a soft touch of suede on my pants while pairing everything with smooth leather and cozy faux fur. The result was a toasty, snuggly outfit that I'll probably be wearing a lot this season!
Can't get over the cuteness of these shoes! But also, they tickle me when I walk! Hahaha
