Last week, I attended Kate Spade’s New York Fashion Week presentation. It’s my favorite event of the season. I wasn’t sure what to wear this year. The weather is always an issue during fashion week. It’s can be blizzard-ing in February or boiling hot in September. This year we got lucky with beautiful weather. I was excited that I found what I considered a perfect mid-September outfit. A nod to fall, but still comfortable for eighty degrees.
This skirt (also available here)… I mean. I couldn’t walk out of the store without it. It’s high-waisted so it will look great with a blouse tucked in when it gets a bit cooler off, but for this event I opted for a simple shell. Not quite a crop top… but not quite not a crop top.
Also, the skirt has the best pockets!
I also realized, casually the day before, that I didn’t have the right shoes. I have quite a few pairs of pumps and a handful of black heels… however, I didn’t have a simple black pump?! I think I remember one of my heels breaking a few years ago and I guess I never replaced them. I tried this pair on and was blown away by how comfortable they were. Perfect heel height, classic silhouette.
