While visiting NYC for Fashion Week I had a great opportunity to have a photo shoot in Central Park one afternoon. Being amidst so much inspiring fashion (both via the runways and the streets) has really motivated me to get out and take more outfit photos. Hopefully this becomes a more consistent and regular feature for Modern Eve.

Husband bought me this dress a couple days before I left for NYFW. I’ll probably be living in it for the next year, as it truly is now one of the most versatile items in my closet. Here I’m styling it with leather leggings and a fur vest (both faux), but It’ll look just as cute plain with some summer wedges and a statement necklace. I’m all about investing in a seasonless wardrobe.
