"I am so excited that my upcoming trip is all I can talk about or think about. The only slight problem I see on my otherwise bright horizon is my limited clothes choices. As a mom of 3 kids, my wardrobe is more suburban frumpy than city chic. It is just that clothes have not always been a priority. I know that with a little help from some fashion experts and those in the know, I can get my wardrobe in shape in time for my trip. To find that help, I have created the Kendra Fashion Challenge! I’ll be visiting New York City to spend a couple nights in one of the cities best hotels, The Standard High Line Hotel.
While visiting the city, we have a special outing planned. At the corner of 13th and Washington Streets, sits the public Standard Plaza. There is no other square quite like it in lower Manhattan. In the winter months, cold weather lovers can enjoy the skating rink at this square and enjoy a warm snack at Alpine Kaffeeklatsch. At all times of the year, this square plays host to some of the best large art installations, featuring such artists as Erwin Wurm, Kaws and Kenny Scharf. Snacks. In the summer months, snacks are created from fresh produce from Locusts Farms in upstate New York along with a variety of gelatos and sorbets made there. It is going to be an exciting afternoon and evening.
I know that to enjoy my time at Standard Plaza I need to look my best in a new outfit put together during my challenge. Planning this trip faced some other challenges. When a group travels to a new city like my friends and I, everyone has their own list of “must see” places. I used Gogobot to help determine, which places to see and things to do were the highest rated. This made creating the perfect itinerary that suited everyone a snap. I know that walking around the city or visiting a luxurious hotel such as the Standard High Line Hotel will be a lot more enjoyable with a new outfit and great look."I loved this idea, so I created a Pinterest board with a bunch of options for her NYC trip. I solely used shopbop.com to make life easier should Kendra want to make a purchase.
I also tried to keep all options under $200, but I couldn't help the occasional splurge!
I love simple statements. A bit of a dichotomy with wording, but it makes sense to me. I love an eye-catching outfit that is easy to wear.
I generally go with dresses because it's one piece and done. For Kendra, I decided to go with rompers and jumpers. They are also one pieces, but I think much more fun for day and night.
I focused quite a bit on jewelry because I believe accessories can make any outfit pop. Jewelry and other accessories can change the mood, the appeal and the feel of any outfit.
The pictures make up my favorite outift for Kendra's night out, but definitely check out my pinterest board. I have many more options to mix and match!
