During New York Fashion Week, images of Ralph Lauren’s magical runway show kept popping up on my Instagram. The display included over 100,000 live orchids blanketing the New York flagship. After commenting on each post with heart eyes I was thrilled to learn that the store was keeping the floral forest up through the week! As part of my New Year’s Resolution I’ve been waking up earlier and I decided to see it for myself before brunch on Saturday.

It was one of the most fantastical spaces I’ve ever been in. Every corner was covered floor-to-ceiling with cascading orchids and greenery. The atmosphere was heightened by a rainforest soundtrack and an amazing floral scent. They also had the entire new collection on display which made me feel like I was really part of the fashion week phenomena.

This outfit is a winter version of my weekend uniform. I wear my white jeans year-round and I think with a few tweaks in presentation we can crush their reputation as summer-only wear once and for all. The key for winter whites is to pair it with cool tones, in this case a gray sweater and a purple wool coat. While it was warm enough for loafers this weekend, I think pairing white bottoms with a light brown bootie is also a great option for cooler temps.
