Well of course Orange County had to have its own version of Fashion Week!!  And it was fabulous!!  Fashion Island has a special place in my heart =)  Born and raised in OC- Fashion Island was always my favorite place to shop!!

First I had the opportunity to go into Halston Heritage the week before and try on all the gorgeous dresses from their new collection and chat with all the Halston girls about the inspiration from the current line.  “We are all broken- that’s how the light gets in”  – Ernest Hemingway     I love that quote and I love that Halston was inspired by it- and it makes sense!!  Theres a lot of metallics and lame in the line and I love it!!

Then theres the big night!!  I was picked up by Cadillac in a beautiful town car and taken to Fashion Island.  My makeup was done by Nars and hair by Toni & Guy.  I met up with a few other beautiful local bloggers and we make our way over to the fashion show.  I loved all the inspiration that came from the looks on the runway- I even found a few of my favorite pieces for you incase you wanted to shop them!!

The best part was the meet n greet in Halston where I got to meet some of you!!!  I loved chatting with some of my readers and followers, hearing your story, and taking pics with you.  Thank you so much to those of you that came!!  It meant a lot to me!!

Ahhh so many things I love in one outfit!!  A peplum top with bell sleeves and stripes…  A velvet choker… These frayed hem jeans are so amazing!!  And these are new in stock, grab them fast because frayed hem denim keeps selling out on every site since they’ve hit the stores!!   And then these shoes… Wheres the heart-eyed emoji on here?!  I dont just love these shoes because they’re soooo pretty- they are also extremely comfortable!!  Which I need because I am still trying to figure out how people get around in some heels!!  =)

This top is one of those quality purchases- you know you’re getting a well-made piece!!  But Ive linked a few similar tops for much less!!

I love visiting New York, its such an exciting city!!  Im sure one of the reasons I like it so much is because its so different from my daily life.  Born and raised in southern California- other than school in Utah for 3 semesters ( I got tired of the cold and went home to finish school haha!!) I love city life!! I have a major people-watching problem so its heaven for me =)  I dont mean any harm in it, Im just truly fascinated by people!!  And fashion week makes it all that much better!!  So much fun, so much inspiration!!

Now for this outfit!!  I got a little fancy on day 2 of NYFW, I loved these shoes OMG!!  So then I put this outfit together around the shoes.  This gorgeously detailed top is a splurge so I listed some similar options for less, same for the skirt.  Although I will say this skirt is so gorgeously made, the lace is just divine!!  Its so fun looking back at pictures from fashion week, brings me back to the amazing shows and designers, all the inspo!!

Transition into Fall with Nordstrom

September 16, 2016
FW3A5002

My first post since NYFW!!  I bring my laptop out there thinking Ill get some work done, but that usually ends up not happening!  Its crazy busy out there- rushing from one show to another, one meeting to a showroom, and maybe eat in-between!

So my first post back is with one of my favorite places ever- Nordstrom!  Its a one-stop-shop for a busy mama like me.  I love that I can shop for my clothing, shoes, makeup, skincare, etc plus shoes and clothes for my kiddos too!!

Tonights look is a great transition into fall look- its not too warm ( I end up sweating by noon if Im in a sweater too early in September! ) and its not too cool ( its hard to get it right!! haha!)  I just love this lovely white top!!  Its so flattering- the tie at the waist is slimming… and just plain cute!!  Paired with the perfect cropped skinnies and you’ve got the classic white top and denim look!!  Im wearing these booties all the time too- the cutout detail is so different from most booties and they’re comfortable!!

Happy shopping!!

Happy Labor Day!!

I hope you all had a fabulous long weekend!!  We just got back from a long, fun day at the beach, its was so beautiful out and a perfect day!!

Tonight Im teaming up with Nordstrom to show you how I styled this bomber jacket at lace dress.  One of my absolute favorite looks in the world is when something unexpected is paired together- like this feminine dress and edgy bomber jacket!!  Separately they are both fabulous- this dress is so pretty, the back detail is just perfect!!  Im really obsessed with this bomber jacket!! The embroidery is so fun on so on trend for this fall!!  They both fit beautifully!!

I finished the look with this to-die-for bag that can be carried by the handle or worn crossbody, lace up heels, and some delicate gold jewelry.

Military x Ruffle x Studs

September 1, 2016
FW3A5187

Sometimes you just gotta pile up a bunch of things you love all together in one outfit!!  This military jacket had me at the ruffle- and the button detail is just as great!!  I paired it with a favorite grey tee, and one of my favorite pairs of ripped jeans ever- if you follow me on instagram you might be sick of seeing them on me!! =)

These studded shoes just felt right with this ensemble, playing off the buttons from the jacket.  These shoes are so much fun!!  I get so many compliments on them!!  And the chunky heel makes them easy to walk in.  Put on this grey suede bag that can be worn crossbody or on the shoulder to complete the look!!

Loafers x Bucket Bag

August 30, 2016
sole society, nordstrom, shopping, shoes, fashion trends, jeans, lyndi kennedy, lyndi in the city, fashion week, style expert,

Today Im partnering with Sole Society!!  I am so excited to share a couple of my fall accessories favorites with you!!

I chose this black bucket bag because its so chic yet functional!!  I can throw a couple toys, snacks and the iPad in there for the little guy- and my wallet, lipstick, phone, etc too!!  I love that you can wear it crossbody or over one shoulder.

I also chose this gorgeous statement necklace!!  I love that it dresses up a tee, or put it on with a dress.  Either way its such a great accessory!!

And last but not least, I love these loafers!!  They’re so great for fall, keeping my toes warm ( my feet get so cold when the temps drop!) and look great with a t-shirt, skirt, or my favorite- a blazer!!  I just dont have one yet for this fall so as soon as I do I’ll be pairing it with these shiny babies! =)

Cognac x Baby Blue

August 25, 2016
FW3A4921

You know those tops or dresses that you put on and they just make you feel pretty?!?  Well this top is one of those!!  All the delicate details are just to die for!!  I absolutely loved this color too!! But it comes in both black and white also for those of you who dont love the color.

Can we talk about how fab this bag and these shoes are?!?  So, so good!!  The movement on the bag makes it fun to just walk around and swing it back and forth =)  These shoes are soooo good too- the chunkier heel makes for more comfortable walking and the laceup detail just makes them more fun!!  Also- these cropped jeans are perfect for those lace up shoes!!
