Layered Shirt Trend

Recently, there have been a lot of fun trends out there and one of my favorite, and also most easy to accomplish, is wearing a long sleeve shirt under a short sleeve one. This is how I dressed when I was in middle school and I always looked back and cringed but, I think if styled in the right way, it’s a fun way to dress up a boring tee.

Admire Your Selfie

A few years ago, I met the coolest person in the entire world, like not even kidding. Molly Munyan is the funniest, most creative, and unique person I’ve ever met. She is a balloon artist! I met her when she was making dresses out of balloons and I have only watched her grow from there. This past month, she opened a temporary installation in Kansas City called “Admire Your Selfie”. This exhibit featured multiple areas of different backdrops composed of balloons, donuts, a swing, and more! It brought a ton of different people together to collaborate. My entire Instagram feed is nothing but photos from here and I LOVE THAT. I hope to see Molly do more like this in the future and I can’t wait to see what’s next for her!

#KCFW F/W’17 Media Meet + Greet – Outfit

Last night was the official media meet and greet event for Kansas City Fashion Week held at Fortuity downtown. There were swag bags from Dior and Lee Jeans (sponsors) which was so exciting! I got the chance to network and mingle with other official media members. Lots of familiar faces along with some new ones! I am so excited to see what everyone else has in store for the upcoming week!

I jumped out of my comfort zone for this look and had a blast with it. There is a lot going on but not too much to be distracting. I love the fishnet trend and they tied the whole look together flawlessly. This dusty rose is probably one of my favorite colors right now and when I saw this jumper/dress thing, I knew I needed to wear it!

Stay tuned for more KCFW posts throughout the week!
