I am beyond excited to finally share my news with you all! I was chosen, along with three other New York-based bloggers to be a part of Time Warner Center’s first ever fashion blogger campaign called Fashion Blogger Forecast! The challenge at hand? To style looks inspired by Time Warner Center Experiences. I chose to create looks for a picnic in Columbus Circle with treats from Bouchon Bakery, followed by drinks at restaurant hotspot A Voce.
But before I reveal photos from our lovely day and evening, (and what I wore!) here are some fun shots (even more to come Wednesday!) from my day of shopping at The Shops at Columbus Circle at Time Warner Center.
My day began by heading uptown, extremely excited for my day of shopping. I couldn’t wait to explore all the amazing stores inside. My first stop was J.Crew and I was immediately drawn to the wall of hats, full of all different shapes and sizes. I have been seeing a huge resurgence of the Panama Hat, which has always been a classic, but I love seeing it styled in both traditional and non traditional ways. I also hit up Cole Haan, Wolford, Eileen Fisher and United Colors of Benetton and found some stellar items in each lovely shop.
Saw lots of sparkles, sequins and stripes at J.Crew!
You know I love a good cognac-colored accessory. Hello handbag!
A fun behind-the-scenes shot of Allen shooting me for the video! I can’t wait to show you the final product on Wednesday.
I saw punchy hues in Cole Haan and Eileen Fisher, and United Colors of Benetton was full of all sorts of trench coats in various colors, which I think is going to be big for spring. Again, a trench is such a classic piece, but it all depends on how you style it and make it your own. I was over the moon to finally purchase my first pair of Wolford tights because they are super silky yet still really durable, and they sit comfortably around your waist without pinching your stomach.
So, with all that said, my inspiration for my outfits started from the fact that “A” and I are going to Paris in less than a month. Seeing that Bouchon Bakery is inside The Shops at Columbus Circle, I opted for a picnic with tasty food from this amazing eatery, complete with quiche, french bread and macaroons! Later in the day, I headed back inside to pick up a few dressier pieces to add to my outfit for champagne at A Voce with “A” before we headed out to our friend’s dinner party.
Overall, after perusing around all day, I would say that I noticed a strong theme of bright colors mixed and matched together, as well as classic pieces mixed in with trendy patterns and prints. I think the forecast for spring is going to be a bright and bold one and I can’t wait! xoxo
