Day two at #NYFW did not disappoint! From up-and-coming designers presenting their collections as part of the Academy of Art University to household names such as Rebecca Minkoff and Noon by Noor, there was a lot to take in. A few of my favorite collections from yesterday include:
So far I am loving the first look from every designer collection that comes down the runway – Minkoff’s Spring 2014 show was no exception! From soft and flowy florals, texture and peek-a-boo prints, Minkoff knows how to not only combine feminine details with edgier elements, she also knows how to put on a drool-worthy show. Some of my favorite outfits are:
The first look to grace the runway from Minkoff was this beautiful floral gown.
Another head-to-toe look I adored was this floral print jacket and blouse paired with these patterned shorts.
Remember when I referenced that peek-a-boo element, well this black see-through dress with a pop of floral underneath is, in my opinion, the perfect definition of femme fetal; and that necklace is to die for!

One of Fashion Week’s favorite designers premiered her collection yesterday as well – Nicole Miller’s Spring 2014 collection simply took my breath away! I love the edginess of her liquid leggings, torn jeans and jackets for day or night. Leather piping on her dresses and the simplicity of the cut make Miller’s collection a must-have for next year! Make sure to add a pile of textured braids to the top of your head to complete the look. Some note-worthy ready-to-wear outfits included:
This printed black and white jacket, tiered blouse and leggings paired with cut-out heels.
This geometric print, strapless dress, featuring black piping to further enhance your womanly curves.
This lace jacket, black and cream blouse and leggings. Adding the layered pearl necklace is a definite do – it also appears that metallics will continue to be big next spring, just check out her shoes!

Noon by Noor
I think Noon by Noor’s first outfit that came down the runway was one of my absolute favorite looks from the entirety of day two at #NYFW! The bright, poppy print is adorable and the colors are perfect for transitioning from the Spring to Summer season. I’m also glad to see that crop-tops weren’t just a “trend” this year, but will be making a comeback come Spring 2014!
Another outfit I am loving is this triple dose of print! Normally, I am not a huge fan of mixing different patterns (mostly because I am not daring enough to actually try it out myself) but something about this assorted combination really made me stop and think about styling in a whole new light.
Except for summer, I love the idea of pairing tops, pants, skirts and jackets with anything leather, which is why these cranberry leather shorts are a part of my top three looks from Noon by Noor.
