Autumn is my favorite season! I grew up in Boston where fall foliage is a BIG DEAL. People travel to New England from all over the world during this time of year to see the beautiful golden, orange and rust-colored leaves covering the landscape. It’s truly magical and it's Fashion to Frolic in the Foliage time.
I love shoes. I have always been a shoe person. My blog is even named On My Shoebox. But sneakers aren’t really my thing. I’m not athletic and I feel much more comfortable in a pair of stilettos than I do sporting runners. You may have seen the popular Preachers and Sneakers account on Instagram (@preachersnsneakers). It roasts famous pastors and worship leaders for their choice of high-end (and high-priced) sneakers. But is this a new thing? Are sneakers having a moment in popular culture?
Style Session is back and just in time! Put your studying and homecoming-float-planning aside because this is a very important time of year. It’s New York Fashion Week! I will give you a little breakdown in terms you may find more relatable.
I was standing outside the FC gym last week, waiting for my 8th grader to exchange his backpack for his tennis uniform and racquet before their first co-ed junior high tennis match.Beautiful and athletic Trinity Cox, my son’s classmate, saw me as she waited to leave for her softball game.
As I was reviewing the spring shows to cull the season’s latest trends for you, I realized a couple of things. First, there’s nothing really new under the sun. Most of the themes on the runways weren’t earth-shatteringly innovative. Many of the looks are either recycled trends that pop up every few years or are modernized takes on decades-old patterns and accessories.
I looked at the calendar this morning and came to a sudden realization – there are only 10 weeks of school left! Not counting spring break, this school year will be over in 2-1/2 months and I’m not ready to think about summer plans yet.
In each of these instances, I complied. Surprisingly, I happen to like rules. I like order. I like things going the way they’re supposed to. Do I love being told how to dress? Not necessarily. But usually, there is a reason for the regulation.
As exciting as it all was (at least for me), I can’t think about fashion right now. The overwhelming thoughts crowding my brain and heart at the moment involve the tragedy in Florida.
I read last week that a second H&M store will open this summer at Fashion Fair Mall. The first one opened at River Park in 2014. I’m not a fan of fast fashion and I don’t think I fit the store’s demographic, so I’ve only been in the River Park store a handful of times. But it must be doing well if they’re opening a second location.
