Flyover Fashion Fest 2017 – Day 1

Hello from Iowa City, Iowa!!! This is my first time here and I absolutely love the atmosphere. I am in Iowa City this weekend attending Flyover Fashion Fest! Flyover Fashion Fest is a two-day event involving tons of fashion talent, public speakers, activists, musicians and so much more.

Last night there was an outdoor fashion show featuring two designers; Hannah Eckley and Nicole Leth of Sex + Ice Cream.

Make it all the way through this post to see my Flyover Fashion Fest outfit!

Hannah Eckley, from Iowa BIG, opened the show. Her goal is to make women of all shapes and sizes look beautiful and feel confident. I loved her color palette and patterns and it was obvious that the models were having a blast!

I have been obsessed with Nicole Leth of Sex + Ice Cream for such a long time, when I found out she would be showing at Flyover I got so excited! Nicole is all about girl power and being confident. Everything she creates is bright and fun, just like her. She is such a sweetheart and talented individual who genuinely cares about others. I can’t wait to see what is in store for her! I featured one of her pieces in an older blog post, here.

I had such a blast last night I can’t wait for the busy day ahead of me today! Stay tuned for a recap to be posted tomorrow!

AND!! Get excited for a Flyover Fashion Fest street style post coming soon! People have seriously good and unique style here.


MY OUTFIT

I wanted to keep this look pretty sleek and simple (okay, not going to lie, the drive was long and I was way too tired to put a super cute outfit together). I’ve had this denim top for a long time but I never wear it so I decided to throw it on! Since the top and skirt are both pretty structured, this outfit looks more professional.
