Sorry I've been MIA. I've been running around like a chicken with my head cut off getting ready for my trip to New York. I'll be there for Fashion Week, attending the IFB Evolving Influence Conference, and I couldn't be more excited. But man-oh-man! Dressing for a fashion crowd is stressful!

I may be breaking out my grandmother's Somali leopard coat that she got for her high school graduation in the '30s, so watch out, New York. Other than that, though, I've been searching for the perfect cropped sweater to layer and pair with a leather skirt, and it's been much more difficult to find than I thought it would be.

I won't show you the final result until after the conference (why ruin the surprise?), but I'll fill you in on the entire trip when I get back. I'll be in New York through Sunday and may not have time to post while I'm there, so have a lovely weekend!
