Style by Lolly

The LoLo Ladies

Sometimes you meet a person and within the first few moments of talking you just know that you're kindred spirits. This is how it was the first time I spoke with Lauren.  She is kind, genuine, loves people, (loves The Bachelorette...which is super important in my book), and is a woman who is really walking out her faith and dreams in such an honest and contagious way.

We didn't know what our friendship had in store, but we both felt confident that there was some major purpose in our paths crossing.  Over the past almost year she has been such a sweet and encouraging friend, and has challenged me to chase my dreams unashamedly.

A few months ago I reached out to Lauren asking if I could shoot their street style at New York Fashion Week.  To my excitement she said Y-E-S!!

Lauren and her childhood best friend Shannon run Dallas Based Lolo Magazine.  Fashion, Fitness, and food:  these girls cover their bases well:)

It wasn't until  we were running into the Rebecca Minkoff show that I met Shannon for the first time.  To sum it up:  she's blonde, gorgeous, has amazing style, and is really sweet.

In the midst of running from show to show, to a million appointments, and blogging--these ladies stayed classy the whole week.  Also, may I say how impressed I was that they rocked heels every day??

Ladies, I could be more thankful that y'all let me run around town shooting your outfits and runway shows.  My time in NYC would not have been the same with out you ladies in it!  Can't wait for more memories with y'all:)

Enjoy my final installment of my trip to NYC.  Thanks so much for being on the journey with me the past two weeks!  What were some of your favorite outfits or shows from the past few weeks?

Meet Miss Lauren Scruggs (on the left) and Miss Shannon Yoachum (on the right)...

Friends don't let friends have fly-aways.

I love how uniquely feminine and different Lauren and Shannon dress.

Ladies...it's all about the details.

Shannon blogged her outfits with all the details HERE.

New York Fashion Week Street Style | Part I

What surprised me about the trends I saw throughout Fashion Week was that there were so many different types of people, fashion, styles, trends. Sure, there were the ones that were glaringly standing out above the crowd:  leather, print pants, peplum shirts.

However, not one person was the same.  I love how fashion can truly be an extension of who you are, an art form of self expression.  There really are not that many rules.

The one rule that I've realized that I'm going to stick with is to just be me.  Be fully me, that is the most unique thing I will ever have to offer.

Lastly, I'm super excited to have photographed street style at New York Fashion Week for Lauren Scruggs and Shannon Yoachum and their publication LoLo Magazine.  Check out more of my street style pics on their site HERE.

Below is Ella Catliff of the London based fashion blog La Petite Anglaise.  To me this outfit was one of my favorite outfits all week because it was simple, feminine, classic, and elegant.  She isn't trying to hard, and/or trying to 'keep up'.  Ella is timeless in this outfit.

Another favorite:  I just love the simplicity of the white v-neck tee with a pencil skirt and tan belt to draw everything together.

This young lady is gorgeous.  But what I love about this seemless white ensemble is that when someone from the crowd yelled 'who are you wearing'.  She replied back 'It's ALL Zara'.  

See ladies...you don't have to be a millionaire to dress fashionable.  It's the pieces you pick, and how you wear them:)

Below is LA blogger and stylist Cheyenne from Cheyenne meets Chanel.  You know I'm a sucker for a white blazer.  I Love her Rebecca Minkoff camera box green purse!

Minutes after the Rebecca Minkoff show as I was headed to lunch with some sweet ladies (Miss Lauren Scruggs and Shannon Yoachum.  If you don't know them, puh-lease check out the rad magazine Lolo).  Shannon kept talking about this girl that was wearing a blazer from Rebecca's SS 2013 collection.  Well we turned the corner, and found Miss Jules from Sincerely Jules rockin' the blazer.  I want.  I need. I want. I need.

The last show of my day was the Tommy Hilfiger SS Collection.  Much to my dismay they would not let us (Lauren, Shan, and myself) into the show.  So I stayed and got some shots as everyone was leaving.

Dear Tommy, please let me in next time.

Thanks, Kat.

Below left is Justin Doss, fashion editor of GQ.  Sigh.  So darling.

I may have not made it to the show, but I did meet these sweet guys that walked for Tommy.

I mean really, who doesn't like a guy in a well tailored suit and hat?  And that grin?

And that ends day one of New York Fashion Week Street Style.  More to come:)
