Last week I flew up to New York for an afternoon and a day to visit the Old Navy headquarters and see their holiday preview. I know, I know it’s still hot outside but they introduce their holiday collection for press (magazines, websites, etc.) so that people can get a good idea of what’s coming up next. I was excited to be included, as I’m nosey and into all things holiday. 

While I was in New York I did…I saw… I went to… a lot of nothing. I was prepared to not do much because of the huge chance of rain that was predicted, so I was just excited for a change of scenery and a hotel with HGTV. It’s the little things sometimes. But it ended up not raining much at all and we were able to tour a little bit of Soho and Chelsea where we found many things to eat and drink. I can sleuth out a good restaurant in any town I’m in; it’s a sixth sense I have. (If you haven’t yet tried Tortaria tacos, it’s Texan-approved.) 
With the exception of two photos, I  now present you with ‘Kendi Holding Things: an instagram collection‘:
Riveting, yes? I know. So much demand for these photos that I’ll probably going to have a gallery showing later this month. 
I ended up going pretty simple for the Old Navy preview show since I wasn’t sure what everyone else would show up in. Black skirts are good for occasions like that. You can never go wrong with a simple black skirt, bonus points for flirty shape and appropriate lengths. 

Besides drinking milkshakes with candy canes in them, I pretty much just walked around and took photos of everything I want later this fall and then when no one was looking tried on the coats, hats and purses. No one stopped me so I think that was allowed. 

(Above and below are my two favorites. Don’t judge me if I’m wearing the exact mannequin’s outfit above later this fall.)

Above is pretty much my wish list for this holiday, especially all of the plaids. (Those plaid pants though…) But if you just can’t with holiday right now, don’t worry. These styles will be waiting for you when it’s time for us to get our coats out again. For now, just file (or pin!) these styles away until the cold weather comes.

And now, back to summer. πŸ™‚

  1. I am an Old Navy fiend so naturally I’m very excited to pre-shop for this Winter! I really love the plaid prints as well, I could use some of those in my wardrobe! How awesome that you got to attend this. I like your insta collection as well πŸ™‚

  2. Old Navy pencil skirts are about my favorite thing ever. I buy ever color and pattern they come out with because they’re so damn comfortable and versatile. I’ll be ordering that plaid one as soon as it is available.

  3. Great to see that Old Navy will keep up with great collection for Fall! I already see a couple of favourites! You look absolutely stunning in both outfits, 1st one being my favourite πŸ™‚ When it comes to NY, Soho and Chelsea are both amazing parts of the city and have some of the best restaurants in the world.

      1. I haven’t tried it on yet honestly! I ordered the L because I am a bit wide at the hips and I am worried it might be too lose. I would say by seeing it in person it’s pretty tts. Hope that helps!
