Swingy Skirts

I'm sure you've been seeing plenty of New Yorkers (bloggers & otherwise) talking about the little Indian Summer in NYC and I hate to jump on the bandwagon, but it's true. Despite the fact that these photos seriously allude to fall (hello, colorful leaves!) all last week we had temperatures in the 70's and 80's. I had to get the last few miles of no tights out of my swingy a-line skirts while I still could! 

I stayed up very late the night 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target came out-blame it on my recent addiction to Scandal (in case you're wondering-I'm all caught up as of last night!). I was more and more disappointed with the fit as I tried each item on, but I was saving the skirt for last-and I'm so glad I did. It's long enough to wear to work, incredibly flattering and just plain fun. Oh, and the tote? It's 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target, too...of course I was going to keep that!

I feel like most girls dream of being able to be in NYC for New York Fashion Week at least once in their life, but not everyone is lucky enough to live here (or even get invited!). You all know I've been blessed to be able to attend because of work since I first moved here, but now you can enter for a chance to attend the next one!

ECCO is giving away an all-expenses-paid trip to NYFW through their Smile Your Way to Style sweepstakes. All you have to do is vote for your favorite pair of shoes from their Sculptured 75 line-so easy! They'll give away a free pair of shoes each week and the Grand Prize winner will win a trip for 2 to NYC in February. Hopefully, it's you, ya' lucky reader, so we can meet up in NYC! Head over here to enter-good luck! :)
