For those of you who work in the fashion industry, I assume you spent the week heavily invested in New York Fashion Week shows. It is always a thrill when it’s here and a relief when it’s gone. I, for one, enjoyed staying on top of the shows and, next week, I will be posting my summary of the Spring/Summer 2015 collections. Despite my busy NYFW schedule, I was able to get my fall 2014 shoe trends story out on the blog so check it out. For those of you who do not follow NYFW, I hope you had a productive week and enjoyed the cooler days. It was very depressing for me as I came out of my evening SoulCycle class on Wednesday to find it dark. As much as I love fall, summer is a hard one to let go of! Do you have any fun plans this weekend? I will be preparing for my upcoming trip to Europe. I cannot believe that I leave a week from today! I will be traveling to London and Paris. My wardrobe isn’t ready yet for such fashionable cities so I need to tackle my long shopping list. With preparations, brunch plans, and football Sunday, it’s shaping up to be a perfect weekend in NYC. I didn’t spend a lot of my days off in the city over the summer so it’s good staying close to home. Because of Fashion Week and my trip, this edition of Weekly Links is very fashion and travel heavy. Let me know in the comments below what you have recently discovered. Enjoy the weekend!
