It’s official! Maroon is my favorite color for fall. This time of year it’s easy (for me at least) to throw on an all-black outfit and call it a day, but I love picking up a couple colorful pieces like this top that can really make an outfit pop and easily work in multiple outfits. This weekend I was in full recovery mode from New York Fashion Week. I slept in, grabbed brunch with friends, got my nails done and had a couple meetings with some brands that I’m excited to feature on my blog in the coming weeks.
As I’m sure you’ve heard, Saturday night a bomb went off in Chelsea. While at dinner that night I got a few texts asking me if I was okay and instantly knew something bad had happened. It was especially scary since I live less than three blocks from the explosion site and they found and were able to remove a second bomb on my block around 2 a.m. I hid out at a friends apartment until it was safe to return to the area, but needless to say I didn’t get the best night’s sleep. It’s sad to think that someone would have this much hate in their heart and try to take away our freedom in this way. I know this blog is about fashion, beauty and lifestyle, but I just wanted to touch on it since it (literally) hit so close to home for me. Let’s all say a little prayer for peace!
