Black Leather & Prada

It's hard to believe that I am writing this post in 40 degree weather, when we shot for this blog just yesterday in 60 degrees - but I guess that's autumn in New York for ya. My best friend and I took advantage of the temporarily nice weather to shoot down in West Village. 

I put this outfit together based on my current wardrobe staples. Leather and denim are really popular fabrics right now, and I couldn't stray away from my usual all black everything look. My absolute biggest obsession though? The Prada backpack I'm carrying. Backpacks are being used now more than ever for aesthetic purposes, but the best part is they really are functional! Prada's backpack is smaller in size, but enough to fit a laptop + all of my essentials - making it perfect for class and a day out. All outfit links will be at the bottom of the post.

Fifth Avenue Fashion

It's been a gorgeous fall season so far in New York City. As the holidays are approaching, one of the best places in Manhattan is Fifth Avenue. One of my first stops every year at the beginning of November is Ralph's Coffee Shop at the Polo Ralph Lauren store on Fifth Avenue. 

With suited up businessmen and well-dressed women walking in and out to grab their afternoon pick me up, I felt obligated to get a little dressy.
