lauren moffatt fall 2014

today i’m excited to share a preview of the upcoming lauren moffatt fall 2014 collection. her designs have long been favorites of mine, and once again, she doesn’t fail to disappoint with a huge collection filled with amazing prints and patterns, plenty of separates to mix and match, and some really awesome knitwear and outerwear. there really is something for everyone in this cool collection, and the styling is spot-on as usual.

lauren moffatt spring 2014

this past september, i was kinda bummed that lauren moffatt didn’t have a presentation during new york fashion week, but i still had a chance to peek at her new spring 2014 collection! this season, she was inspired by a family trip to the monterey bay aquarium and created beautiful silk prints fashioned after starfish and seahorses and pretty aquatic patterns that caught her eye. as always, her eye for color is impeccable and she’s created plenty of wearable separates to easily combine with your wardrobe. i’ve long been a fan of her classic snapback tops, so it’s fun to see her introduce so many easy and wearable tops to pair with jeans and clogs on casual days.

lauren moffatt fall 2013

you may remember my photos from the lauren moffatt fall 2013 presentation back in february (see them here). well, today i thought i’d share my favorites from the pretty fall lookbook and a few more looks that weren’t featured in the presentation. the collection was inspired by a weekend away in the catskills of new york, and it’s got plenty of my favorite signature lauren moffatt looks: bright colors, fun prints, pretty lace details, and a perfect mix of textiles like silk, cotton, wool, and leather.

lauren moffatt fall 2013 presentation

one of the shows that i have come to anticipate the most during new york fashion week is lauren moffatt. though her line has been around for over 10 years, she just recently started showing during nyfw last year with a school-girl themed lineup for fall 2012. the following season, she brought us outdoors with a tennis-chic selection for spring 2013, and now she’s taking us to the catskill mountains with a very woodsy fall 2013 collection. her attention to detail, down to her adorable invites, always keeps me captivated. as the models hopped onto their little log platforms, i could find myself getting just as excited as if it were my first show, trying to contain my oohs and ahhs over those bold chevron dresses, fun prints, and pretty coats. she even had little matching handwarmers!

and the whole collection couldn’t have come at a better time as i just got back from a very dreamy trip to big sur that left me longing to go back again. a little woodland retreat right here in new york.

photos by me. i originally published them on the modcloth blog.

flowers and braids

these photos were snapped back at the beginning of december during a stroll through the mountain view cemetery near my house. some weekends are just made for long walks, and it really is the perfect place to visit after meandering through the neighborhood and stopping for a warm cup of coffee. i call this my “mcdonalds sweater” because it’s yellow and red and it makes me think of ketchup and mustard. i love it because it really does look vintage, but it’s a new piece from the lauren moffatt fall 2012 collection. she really does make the dreamiest pieces.

spot on

wore this outfit over the weekend to visit the lick observatory on the top of mt. hamilton in the south bay. we’ve frequently gone on day trips up mt. tamalpais and mt. diablo, so we decided it was high time we explored another mountain top in our area. it was a long and very windy road up to the top and we couldn’t believe how freezing cold it was up there. the car thermometer read 37 degrees and we could even see a few chunks of ice along the road. needless to say, i wasn’t prepared even when i pulled on a big coat and wrapped myself in a blanket that we keep in the car. so we poked around, took a look at a big telescope, and made our way back to civilization.

rather than head right home, we decided to to a bit of exploring in san jose. we happened upon a big vintage shop called black and brown where i managed to score a ton of new stuff. all of the kids working there were very sweet and chatty, and we actually got a good recommendation for a dinner spot where we feasted on spicy jerk chicken. all in all, it was a very pleasant way to spend a weekend day.

lacy days

calivintage: lacy days

lately i’ve been living in little mary janes with mini dresses, messy hair, and too much eye makeup. on this particular day, i was feeling fancy, so i wore this combination of gold, lace, and crocodile for a very indulgent sunday brunch. much of the rest of my weekend was spent in shorts and a chambray shirt as i tackled the process of purging my apartment of the excessive amounts of crap that’s been piling up over the past four years that i’ve lived here. after unloading my vintage collection at my pop up shop at pretty penny on friday night, i felt as though a weight had been lifted from my shoulders, and i found myself motivated to continue the purge. it feels so good to get rid of all those pieces that were either too small or too big, or just not quite right. and going through so many years of accumulation has been a nice time to reflect, but also a nice time to start fresh.

mod squad

calivintage: mod squad

can i just tell you that i’m completely obsessed with this skirt? the moment it arrived in the mail, i unwrapped it and sort of gave it a little hug. it’s made of a thick wool, and it’s completely lined making it a perfect option for a girl like me who insists to wear mini skirts even when it’s cold. i think i’ve described the effect as similar to wearing a down puffer vest when you go camping. your arms are unhindered, but you’re still hella warm. it’s also kinda like sleeping with a warm blanket and sticking one leg out to regulate your temperature. that and i love the perfect a-line shape and sweet ’60s style.

this is also what i wore last monday when refinery29 visited my office to snap a few photos for this cute article about modcloth! i love their office tour features, so it was fun to invite them in to our workspace to snap a few photos and to interview me and a few of my adorable co-workers.

lauren moffatt spring 2013 presentation

lauren moffatt spring 2013 presentation

after last season’s fall 2012 presentation in an old abandoned schoolhouse, i was eagerly anticipating the new lauren moffatt spring 2013 collection. this season, lauren was inspired by the prim and proper lawn tennis outfits of the 1960s and the bold colors of a neighborhood public pool. the result was a bright and colorful collection that was a little bit buttoned-up with a perfect undone edge.

i met up with lauren’s team backstage to record a fun little video and snap a few photos all of which was originally published on the modcloth blog. enjoy!

nyfw day one

calivintage: nyfw day one

after spending an entire day in the airport on tuesday, i finally managed to catch a red eye flight into the city and arrived early wednesday morning. i got to the apartment where i’m staying, grabbed breakfast, and headed out for a very busy day. first stop, the lauren moffatt spring 2013 presentation where i wore this lovely new dress from her latest collection to take photos and film a fun video (which i will share tomorrow)! from there, i ran off to see whit, then met up with my modcloth coworkers to finish up yet another video shoot before heading out for the samantha pleet presentation. it was a very fun albeit very exhausting day. not sure exactly how i managed to make it through the day with only a couple of hours of sleep, but the fun and excitement of new york city, the shows, and the people seem to keep me going.
