NYFW: Elizabeth and James Presentation

I'm probably going to keep everything short & sweet this week...not only do I have a major life change happening at the end of the week, I was also unlucky enough to catch the season's first cold last week and it's only been getting worse. While I appreciate the reminder to use the hand sanitizer I keep on my keys more often, getting 5 hours of sleep a night because I can't breathe out of my nose just isn't going to cut it. 

On a less-gross note, I was lucky enough to nab an invite to one of the last presentations of NYFW for Elizabeth and James. Not only am I a longtime Olsen twin fan (possibly related to the fact that my sister & I were frequently told we looked like them growing up), I'm a huge fan of their both their lines, too. Even though I went years without wearing a button-down, the blouse in this post has quickly become a staple and I'm planning to make my first major handbag investment this fall with their leopard print satchel.
My favorite look in the presentation was this white silk trench with a slouchy, ripped boyfriend jean and delicate black kitten heel. Everything about it screams oozes downtown cool. The collection was a mix of relaxed silhouettes and tailored separates, easily dressing any girl for work, weekends and nights out, too. The finishing touch comes from simple leather totes and satchels, plus a cool pair of shades
I don't know about you, but I'm already excited for spring to return (I know, I know, most of you are probably fall people-but hey, a girl can dream!).
