Blogger Style: NYFW Fall 2018

NYFW has come and gone, though the beautiful street style looks continue to grace my Instagram feed, and I am loving it! I don't know how these bloggers do it...running from show to show, and add to that the parties, sponsor events, fittings, and meetings. Yet they still have time to churn out content for readers as well. Anyone who thinks blogging isn't a job knows absolutely nothing about blogging! These ladies are so inspiring, not just with their killer style, but with their self-made and much earned successes. Here are just a few of my faves and a snippet of the top looks from the concrete runway. Enjoy!





Aimee Song from Song of Style is my all-time fave. She has the best fashion week videos, and as you can see, is just so cool. I love that her style is always inspirational yet relatable. Song incorporates unique trends and top brands but styles them in a way that isn't too out there. She often has the most exquisite accessory details, as you can also see above, and i…

Simple Summer Table Decor


Simple white dinnerware is a must for the modern hostess. You can mix and match it with colors, you can dress it up for a formal place setting, and you can mix it with casual elements for a low-key dinner.

Yellow is of course the perfect color to incorporate into a summer dinner party. Yellow paired with that particular shade of blue creates a French country feel that is both elegant and casual. Whenever I want to make a place setting less formal, I love to use natural-looking fabrics and elements, like a woven charger plate. A small bunch of fresh yellow flowers pulls the look together. If you wanted the napkin on top of the setting, use a light blue ribbon to tie the flowers onto each napkin.


You don't always have to have a charger for a formal place setting. As long as you have a salad and dessert plate or a bowl stacked on top of the dinner plate, your place setting can look just as elegant if you use embellished white dinner ware. A few additional elements like stemware, a place card holder, and fresh flowers or candles will elevate the whole look. It's the perfect place setting for a semi-formal dinner at home.

I really love the look of the light blue with the light apple green pictured above. I've used this color palette for summer entertaining before; it's a great way to incorporate fresh produce into the centerpiece. Nestle fresh artichoke hearts and limes around candles and flowers along the center of the table.

  1. Admittedly, I'd get lost figuring out which fork I'm supposed to use.

    1. It's usually safe to just work your way from the outside in!
