NYFW: T-shirt Casual & Braids


Hey everyone!! Look at that hair!! *insert heart eyes here* I absolutely loved this hair so much! 

As most of you can probably tell, I like to keep my outfits comfy, but somewhat stylish for events like this. I want to feel confident in what I'm wearing and not feel too much pressure. Having your own style is amazing and thats what makes us all unique! The only con that I have to say about this outfit is that the dress wrinkles so easily! I drenched it in wrinkle release spray whenever I was getting ready & even though it was wrinkle free, the moment I sat down it was wrinkled again. Lol - I tried to cover it with my purse for the day (kind of worked) I also tried to make myself feel better by saying it gave the outfit character. Haha 
On another note, I was SO happy with my hair and how it turned out this day! I always stick to simple waves but I decided on this day that I wanted to spice it up a little! The TRESemme stylist touched up my waves and added 2 braids to hold back some of the hair and add some extra texture! I love the way this hairstyle looks with the colors in my hair. It really makes everything stand out! This hairstyle is wind proof thanks to the TRESemme extra hold hairspray. Trust me. We were in a wind storm this day! Lol
I tried out an up-do for my last day of fashion week & I can't wait to share it with you in my next post! Stay tuned!

Till next time,
Casey










Winter Wonderland at NYFW



Hi everyone! 
We're throwing back to the first day of NYFW! What better way to start fashion week than with 10 inches of snow?! Am I right?! haha- I know a lot of people dislike the snow, but I personally can't get enough of it! Which is probably a good thing since I'll be moving to Ft. Drum soon! 
Any who, this outfit is what I wore the first day of Fashion Week. Its a pretty simple outfit but I really wanted to layer up so I could say warm all day long. The jacket I'm wearing is the best for throwing over my shoulders because it actually stays put! This was also the first time I attended the TRESemme salon and had some waves put in my hair! I definitely needed a hair touch up after playing in the snow all morning! I love the curls that the stylist created and they lasted all day. The TRESemme extra hold hairspray was a product that came in handy since it was snowing and super windy outside! My curls lasted for DAYS! I hope you all enjoy these photos as much as I do! I want to go back to this day and take them all over again! haha

Talk soon,
Casey












Cape & Ruffles for NYFW




Hey guys! Today I'm bringing you one of my FAVORITE looks that I wore to New York Fashion Week. This was the outfit that I wore to the Jonathan Simkhai show (which was incredible by the way) and I couldn't get enough of it! It wasn't too cold this day so I loved this coat and the fact that the sleeves were able to show through. I had straight hair in these photos but I went to the TRESemme salon before the show & they put in gorgeous waves! They locked them in with the TRESemme extra hold hairspray and the curls lasted for days! I love that hairspray because it holds your style in place but its so easy to brush out! Stay tuned for some more pictures from Fashion week!

Best,
Casey

My First NYFW!


 


Hi guys!!
Oh. My. Gosh. I can't believe I'm in New York attending NYFW! It is so exciting, especially since this is my first time attending. Im working with TRESemme and they flew me out here for a week so I could see all the different hairstyles and give you guys the details on whats trending! I have seen so many hair and outfit inspirations while I've been here and I can't wait to incorporate them at home. While I've been here, I have been getting my hair done at the TRESemme salon! The TRESemme team is very talented and a lot of the hairstyles they come up with are so unique and gorgeous! The picture above is from the first fashion show and we decided to go with classic waves! We locked the curls in place with the TRESemme extra hold hairspray and it lasted all day! I will be posting a few more blog posts on my time in New York and ill be sharing with you some of my favorite outfits. I have a few more shows to attend and I am excited to tell you all about them!

Till next time,
Casey

Happy New Year! & a Little Life Update..


Hi blog family!

I hope you all had an amazing holiday season and a very Happy New Year! I'm listening to the 2 new songs Ed Sheeran released, so I would say 2017 is going pretty well so far! If you don't follow me on my other social media platforms, you wouldn't know what's been going on in my life lately.. so I'm going to do an update for you! 
On New Years Eve, Davis (my boyfriend) and I celebrated the new year by getting him ready for ranger school! We didn't know for sure if a lot of the guys were going to get in, so we were a little surprised when we didn't hear from him the following night. So far, I haven't heard from him. I spoke to one of my friends who is an army wife and she said she didn't get a letter from her husband until the end of the second week. Needless to say, its been pretty difficult adjusting and not speaking to him everyday, but I've been keeping myself busy. I have been lucky enough to have amazing friends that have reached out and offered their support. If you're reading this, you know who you are and I really do appreciate it... And I will be calling you soon. Haha ;) I am so ready to see Davis and hopefully I'll see him in a couple of weeks when they have a pass. This school lasts for a couple months and the end time varies, so we will see! If you want to see what I do on a daily basis and get a glimpse of my life, I have a Vlog channel that you can subscribe to. Its a very laid back channel and it allows you to see what I do when I'm not on camera for my main channel! 

One of my goals this year is to learn how to balance all of the work that I want to do- like this blog! I absolutely love going out, taking pictures, and sharing my favorite items with you. With that being said, I will do my best this year to juggle all of the social media platforms that I have and post as much as possible.

I am very excited to see what 2017 has to offer this year. One of the biggest things that I have been working on since 2016 is my collab with Smashbox! It launches SO SO sooooooon! I cannot contain my excitement and I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do. Be sure to follow me on my social media (will link below) - that way you can be updated as soon as it launches! I have been filming a lot of Facebook Live videos as well and they have been so much fun. Facebook connects you to so many different people and it has been amazing to see all of the people that I have reached with that platform.  

Lets move on to the outfit, shall we?!
I don't know about you, but I love to be very comfy. The kind of comfy when you wear slippers and high socks outside and it's totally okay because they match (Snapchat family understands haha) - This cardigan is the epitome of comfort. It feels like you're wearing a blanket and it's totally acceptable because it's adorable! The only thing that sucks is that this cardigan is 2 years old, so I don't believe they have it online. I'll check for you, but if it's not, I will link alternatives below! The shirt underneath is a basic long sleeve off the shoulder top from Nasty Gal. The jeans are by Asos as well as the shoes! I absolutely love these jeans from Asos. Sometimes I find that their jeans can fit weird on me, but these are perfection! The bag that I'm wearing was actually one of the items on my "wish list" that I have here on my blog. I was on the fence about purchasing it because it looked very small, but its not! Its the perfect bag to fit your essentials. I can fit my YSL wallet, vlog camera, makeup essentials, camera charger and some other miscellaneous items! I'm very happy that I purchased it and you will be seeing it a lot more on my blog! 

Thank you all so much for reading my post! I know its long, but I wanted to fill you in on what has been going on and what I have planned for the future. I hope you have a great Saturday and I'll see you in my next post!

Best,
Casey
