Ok tri-state! I have big news for you all. On June 8th and 9th the Denim Days Festival is coming to NYC and it’s an event for the entire family not to be missed! I’m excited to be partnering with Denim Days to share all the details of the day, ticket info and the opportunity for Summer and I to walk in their fashion show!
SHOP MY LOOK:
New York Denim Days Festival is a 2 day shopping focused festival with a mix of fun activations and a ton of different brands involved highlighting all things indigo. Simply put — if you love denim this is the festival to be at!
TENCEL™ branded fibers by Lenzing is returning as New York Denim Days’ title sponsor. Other brand partners include 3×1, Athleta, Garbage by Marta Goldschmied, and Triarchy. Together these partners have created styles to suit every lifestyle!
And for the denim loving kiddos Denim Days Festival is bringing in OshKosh B’gosh as a new addition. This excites me so much because I can still remember my first pair of OshKosh overalls and the first pair I got for Summer!

When I told Summer she was walking in the kids fashion show she screamed so loud I thought I lost my hearing. Clearly my love of fashion has worn off on her. I can’t blame her. Who doesn’t love denim?
