Introducing Ego Soleil Spring/Summer 2017

Thank you to Ego Soleil for sponsoring this post. Opinions expressed are always my own.


In a couple of weeks I will have the opportunity to attend New York Fashion Week, which is something I have been dreaming of since I was a little girl. The prep and planning has been a whirlwind, as will be our stay. Anna and I fly in on Friday, September 9th and will have an exciting and busy couple of days attending a couple of shows and parties, shooting and people watching.

I’m especially excited about the fabulous street style and the trends we can look forward to seeing in the spring. {Be sure to follow along on Instagram and Snapchat – wishes_reality!} Continue Reading
