#WhyNFW 2016: Fashion Forward Fund Gala

This year's Nashville Fashion Week was absolutely wonderful. The credit must be given to all of the dedicated staff, designers, retailers, volunteers, photographers, videographers, models, hair & makeup artists, event planners, writers, bloggers, stylists, directors and producers who made this week possible. Thank you to everyone I partnered with who made each night so very special. I'm so humbled by all the readers and followers who I had the chance to meet. Thank you so much for your support. I've got heart eyes for you, Nashville! Heart eyes!

Tonight's gala will take place at OZ Arts Nashville and feature Mayor Megan Barry, singer-songwriter Holly Williams, and designer Julianna Bass. I'm so excited to be wearing this gorgeous sequined jumpsuit from The Showroom Nashville with mirrored belt. The Showroom is my favorite place to grab a statement piece for formal events. All rentable, all affordable! I topped off this look with simple sandals and a mirrored sequin bag from Stacey Rhodes Boutique.

NYDJ Super Sculpting Denim

NYDJ's unbeatable combination of the original slimming fit and exclusive Lift Tuck® Technology makes their sculpting denim to die for...seriously. Made from luxuriously soft fabric that moves with you without stretching, these classic five-pocket style jeans are the next best step up from the ordinary staple. Plus, they're available in all of the must-have seasonal hues. My favorite? This yummy eclipse color. Click here to shop more NYDJ styles.

NYDJ Alina Leggings + Black by Maria Silver

NYDJ is the creator of the original slimming jean. The right pair of jeans can transform how you feel. For every woman who has ever sacrificed comfort for style...or style for comfort, meet NYDJ. Designed with a superior fit, these babies are made with premium denim with just the right amount of stretch, even between washings. The Alina Leggings with an adorable hint of embellishments are my new favorite black skinnies. The luxury touch twill is a unique fabric blend with a soft hand feel and major stretch. I threw them on with a perfectly slouchy blouse by Nashville's own Black by Maria Silver and some blue suede hat perfection. Click here to shop more NYDJ styles.

Bohemian Statement Necklace

I've been working non-stop lately, so I'm thankful when an accessory makes styling a breeze. The Nina Bohemian Statement Necklace from Mirina Collections is changing how I get ready. Throwing it on with one of my coziest low-cut t-shirts and my favorite flared jeans is the perfect go-to look during this busy time.

Goodbye Summer Basics

Like I said in my last post, saying goodbye to my favorite summer staples is proving to be a little difficult.  Sure, I can layer my favorite little lacy bodysuits under sweater and jackets, but then really, what's the point of wearing it?  So, I'm preparing myself to set aside my favorite strappy sandals and completely shredded jeans.  But, these Quay sunnies are here to stay.  Forever and ever.
