New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2018 Day 2: Media Lounge & Brooklyn

Outfit Details - Black dress: c/o Double the Love similar 1, similar 2 | Sneakers: Similar | Hat: Similar 


Today, I'm continuing with my New York Fashion Week recap. If you missed Day 1, you can read it here. On my second Day in New York, I actually started to participate in some fashion festivities.

I visited my first Media Lounge hosted by Nolcha shows at the Bryant Park Hotel. There, I met designer Gina La Morte and her collection TRADE. Her line is socially conscious and supports non-profit missions for women that have been impacted by human-trafficking, violence and abuse. Talk about the ultimate female-empowering brand! Gina was also so kind to gift me a bag to wear to her show the following night, such a sweetheart!

Ecru New York also had a booth there and I discovered their texture spray - which hasn't left my purse since! It's so handy to bring with me for the day to give my hair an instant refresh and volume boost. If you're looking for instant hair volume, I encourage you to give it a try, it won't disappoint!

I didn't have any fashion shows scheduled for my second day, so my girlfriend and I decided it would be a good day to explore Brooklyn. A walk over the Brooklyn Bridge is always a must in my books because it's one of my favorite places to view the city from.

I always make a point to visit the Nordstrom Rack in Brooklyn because it's the best one in the city and less picked-over compared to the others.

We also visited Dumbo for the first time and I really enjoyed walking around and finding all the picture-perfect spots. To finish the day, we ate at one of the most amazing restaurants ever. I would say that my meal was one of my top 5 best meals of all time, so that says a lot! I plan to do a more comprehensive post on all my favorite places to eat in the city in a future post, so stay tuned!

Dumbo, Brooklyn
I chose a cute and comfy outfit for my second day in New York because I knew I would be doing a lot of walking. I love that sneakers and dresses are a thing now and I plan to continue this trend for as long as possible. I also found myself wearing this newsboy hat a lot during my trip and I mean a lot. I dare you to count the amount of times you see it in my upcoming New York posts!
