It’s been awhile since my last Style Diary post. I decided to take a break during the month of January to plan, organize and prepare a game plan for Chrissy Joy Style and its endeavors for this year. I have so many great goals that I have set in place, but also have timelines, and people surrounding me to keep me accountable with accomplishing these goals, which I am super grateful! 🙂 I also took time in January to have some alone time with God and really focus on the purpose that He has for me. I came up with ways that I can continue to incorporate His purpose for my life into Chrissy Joy Style. 🙂
I jump started the month of February with attending New York Fashion Week and viewing many of the amazing Fall/Winter 2016 collections that were featured. I selected my top five favorite shows from the season and wrote a review of what I loved most about them…check them out below if you haven’t already!
With every Fashion Week Season comes my Style Rundown of what I wore each day. Out of the five days I attended, I broke down my Rundown into three post, with each look placed in no particular order.
Check out my first two outfits below along with the inspiration behind each look!
For this look I built my outfit around my green-mirrored sunglasses that I love, and I paired it with my comfy blue coat, fuzzy top and corduroy skirt to bring out the green in the glasses. I wrapped my printed orange scarf around my head for another pop of color. I finished the look with my favorite black thigh-high socks and monk strap shoes to add a little menswear flare!

For this outfit I decided to mix a biker look with prints. To be honest, on this day I was running late for a show and put this look together at the last minute. (I wasn’t quite sure about mixing the prints but didn’t have time to go back on my decision and change.) Once I arrived at the fashion show I was stopped by numerous people to see the outfit up close and I received many compliments. After checking out my outfit in a mirror later at the venue, I realized that the look wasn’t much, but I really liked it all together. Sometimes all you need is a little compliment to re-affirm that you aren’t a fashion nightmare! Lol
