Five Fall Essentials

Everywhere compensated me for covering this Macy’s event, but all thoughts and opinions expressed in this post are my own!

So you know how all the big time bloggers spent last week at runway shows for New York Fashion Week? Well, I spent last week in class learning stuff about law and then spent Saturday afternoon at a runway show down the street at Macy’s. I mean I’m sure NYFW is awesome, but I’m not exactly mad that my blogger perks are way more convenient.

The show was all about the 5 Fall Essentials according to the fabulous Danielle (who ties with me for best dressed in Indianapolis…you heard it here first). Here are the 5 trends along with pics of my favorite looks from each.

And there you have it! Pretty cute outfits, right? Couldn’t have styled it better myself. Below are just a couple other shots of some things I liked from the show (clockwise from top left): a trench coat over bold stripes and accessories; a red dress with tan pumps; a fun mix of patterns and textures; and a sweater with wolves making out.

Who else is psyched for fall fashion now?! YAY!
