InStyle Summer Social

posted in: Fashion, Lifestyle, Travel & Events | 0

Every year, InStyle hosts a fabulous night out where bloggers, influencers, and their favorite brands can mix, mingle, and play! This years #summerSocial boasted names like Essie, Sally Hansen, and Neutrogena. It was a night of indulgence with Branscott Estate low-calorie wine and passed appetizers from Gardein. We chatted with fellow influencers and received personal tips from InStyle.com and leading style and beauty experts.

 

What I Wore: Hunter green skater dress (Topshop, old, similar here, black strappy stilletos (Enzo Angiolini, available here ), and a silver Hermes chain ( available here .)
Who I Brought: Labeling Men's Nisim Frank. He's a fellow blogger, PR extraordinaire, and fashion expert.
What I Ate: Gardein was arguably my favorite brand there: 100% vegetarian "meat" that's tasty enough to fool a hard-core carnivore like myself. We snacked on "crab" cakes, "chicken" tenders, and ground "beef' tacos.

 

Much to my surprise and delight, I won a $500 shopping spree at Peony: a contemporary collection, designed and curated by Creative Director Stephanie Feldenkreis. The collection epitomizes femininity with a touch of edginess catering to an active lifestyle. Inspired by athletic and luxurious elements, Peony features original prints, premium-quality fabrics and innovative silhouettes, taking a fresh look at design and trend.

"Today's woman wants to simplify her lifestyle, Stephanie says. "She can mix and match Peony's versatile leggings from work to workout."

Peony embraces sporty chic featuring an interchangeable soft romantic palette with designs ranging from exclusive florals to animal prints paired with luxe tees, feminine flouncy asymmetrical tops and sports bras and shorts allowing you to express individuality in all areas of your life.

Here were my picks:

 

I'm always running low on athletic leggings, and there's nothing more comfortable for working out. I decided to step out of my comfort zone (ie- black) and go for these Parisian Blue Boa Leggings ($98.00, Item# 799016646554) and Caviar Leopard Leggings ($98.00, Item# 799016646431.)
An active girl can never have enough sports bras, and this one is ultra feminine. Looking forward to pairing it with sleek black leggings and a sheer tank: Sleet Lace Sports Bra ($48.00, Item# 799016729912)
For tops, I wanted something easy and breezy that could transition from day to night. These looked super comfortable and chic: a win-win in my book! Caviar & Bright White Tanks with Chiffon Details ($80.00, Items# 799016644833)
