The temperatures are finally starting to cool in New York City, and as my friend Meg so aptly said last night: “I feel about fall the same way that Buddy the Elf feels about Christmas.”

Admittedly, I think I’ve been a bit too eager to break out my mixed prints and faux leather layers.

This is what I wore on the ever-hectic Day 3 of Fashion Week, when the weather rose unexpectedly to 80-some degrees. I spent the larger part of the day sweating, which meant that jacket had to stay on.

You win, Mother Nature. You always do.

On another note, I’m hearing things about wanting a Day 4 recap from Fashion Week. Is that true, you guys?

If so, let me know in the comments. That one’s a bit fuzzy given the amount of champagne that was had on Day 3, but you know I can drum up a story to share…

  1. Hallie those shoes are SICK! Loving the faux leather skirt too. Really need to get my hands on one. And I did manage to get my hands on the same mini Pashli doppelganger! (Shameless plug: it’s on my blog right now if you want to check it out!) I must say, your post about how to shop the collection REALLY helped me prepare! I wasn’t anticipating having to wake up early for this, thinking maybe there wouldn’t be a long line. Thankfully I read your post on Saturday and reworked my Sunday AM plans!
