Darlings, with each passing season we pick and choose a few things to live without and a couple new…”ESSENTIALS”. Since, fall is currently in FULL FORCE I think I am ready to chat a little about something that I just haven’t been able to put down.
It’s no secret that I am a big fan of Gigi New York but I must say I think I just re-FELL IN LOVE with them. When I think of the word, “essentials” I think of THE CLASSICS, and I love that Gigi New York is such an American, classic brand that is timeless and can be rocked in ALL situations. So I think their new “American Natural Beauty” branding is perfect and completely describes not only their style but their classic vibe that I always associated them with.
I could NOT be more excited to be apart of their American Beauty campaign so I thought it would only be fitting to chat about their new fall collection by packing it up and taking it with my to one of the PRETTIEST places to be in fall…Aspen.
This look is a little GLAM, the details SCREAM fall, THE BAG is the punch line, and it’s classic enough to REPEAT…
I think the important thing when picking and choosing a few new essentials with each season is to stick with timeless pieces BUT to mix it up when it comes to the color or the textures.
It was love at first sight for me when I saw this luxe, NAVY, cross body from Gigi New York…I mean choosing a color like navy or a deep hunter green is something that is safe enough to invest in because it will go with so many beautiful looks but it will still stand out!
I love that Gigi New York highlights new colors each season that are ON TREND and also align with their American Beauty landscape campaigns, water, and earthy colors.
I haven’t been able to STOP wearing this cross body- I pair with browns and blacks as a pop of color or when wearing more colorful outfits I wear it as my neutral!
BUT that doesn’t mean I don’t have my eye on a few other Gigi New York pieces for Fall, darlings! So here is a little round up of my MUST HAVES…ready for the best part??? 😉
They are having their FRIENDS AND FAMILY sale right now, so basically:

a FREE tassel if you spend $150 or more
FREE personalization site wide
basically I just justified a little shopping 😉
When I tried this outfit on at Anthropology I knew I wanted to bring it with me to Aspen. I love the classic neutrals mixed in with the pops of color and the fact that Aspen was like MADE for a teddy coat, haha.
Let’s go play around in Aspen…in teddy coats, chic bags, and eat some REALLY good food??? What do you say?? 😉
I hung out in Aspen all weekend and used this bag for everything from chic dinners at sweet places like, Aspen Kitchen to hiking around Maroon Bells in leggings and a baseball cap.
Must Do’s While in Aspen During Fall:
-Maroon Bells- no excuses YOU HAVE TO DO THIS. It’s over the top pretty, I kept making jokes that it was a green screen and someone was punching us because it was so pretty it looked fake!
-Hotel Jerome: Both J Bar and The Living Room are ADORABLE and classic places to stop by and have a drink!
-The Aspen Kitchen….the FOOD, like still dreaming about it
-AJAX: two words…TRUFFLE FRIES
-The Little Nell. I got some questions about where I stayed and we decided on Little Nell because they do a great rate this time of year and I fell in LOVE
-SHOPPING, it’s like a mini New York shopping experience. either shop or HIDE your credit card, haha
-The Aspen Art Museum- they have the cutest rooftop too for coffee or drinks before or after 🙂
Darlings, with each passing season I get so excited for styling new trends and incorporating colors and textures that sorta match the weather. I loved that I truly felt like my bag went with all the festive fall stuff I did all weekend in Aspen!
I think one thing that truly inspires Gigi New York’s collection every season is the fact that their parent brand, Graphic Image has relationships with all the National Parks making their pieces completely and truly inspired by American Beauty.
Well, babes invitation still stands if anyone wants to go cause some trouble in Aspen- you can borrow my coat but you may need to get your own bag 😉
Here’s to fall and everything a new season brings…
