On our way out of NY, we stopped at Grand Central Station.  Grand Central is showcased in more movies that you can imagine, everything from romance to horror.  This New York icon is more than a train station, it is also a shopping and dining destination.  I love train stations and this is the mother of all.  Is it the history?  The hustle and bustle of people coming and going?  Or simply the grandeur that is Grand Central Station?  Whatever it may be, I love it.  I have some “grand” ideas for a photoshoot here one day…

After visiting Grand Central, we had brunch at another NY icon, The Boathouse, located in Central Park and quite possibly the most popular brunch spot in all of the city.  You can sit on the patio and sip champagne while watching people row by on the lake.  It’s literally a picnic in the park, yet you’re surrounded by some of the largest skyscrapers in the world.  Another longtime favorite of mine…

Brunch in the park, Grand Central Station, a walk through Manhattan, and a late flight back to Atlanta… I needed something comfortable yet stylish, after all it was Fashion Week.  This boho inspired look is perfect this Fall.  I found this sheer dress at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale,  it is currently sold out but I did find it available here ,via Amazon.  The hat, I bought a couple of years ago at World Market, but here is a very similar one.  The booties are by Fergie, available at DSW.  And the color block mini bag is by Kate Spade, shown here in the color, punch.  This choker with long, gold tassels is from DressUp Boutique, similar style here.  And to top it off, I am wearing Diva matte lipstick by MAC.  As the weather gets cooler, I’ll add a long, oversized sweater and switch out the booties for knee high boots…  Come on, Fall!  I’m ready.

It stays pretty hot for a while in Georgia, but Fall is here regardless.  We’re officially past Labor Day and on to football season, pumpkin spice season, and New York Fashion Week!  Vogue, Elle, and the “important” fashion resources have released their September issues, and later this week New York City will be transformed into a fashion mecca.  This is the stuff that dreams are made of and this D-List blogger is on her way, even if there’s standing room only.
What’s hot?  We shall see… I believe that street wear this week is just as important and influential as what will be on the runways.  After all, city streets are the real runways.  I expect to see a lot of reminders from last year…  Suede, flannel, throw backs to the 90s… but also many 80s references, broad shoulder suits, lots of distressed denim (pants and jackets), bell-sleeves, furs, velvet, booties, mixed prints, jewel-tone florals, and the official color for Fall 2017… red.  I’m excited about that one.
Here is my interpretation of a perfect transitional outfit for this early Fall heat.  Kimonos are nothing new, they have been in store windows all year, I just love the deep blue in this vintage inspired floral print, available at Dress Up Boutique.  And it’ so light and cool.  I paired it with dark denim Hudson Jeans, a stappy suede heel by Vince Camuto, and necklace by Stella & Dot, then I’m off to NY faster than you can say “PSL”.
