The last week has been a bit crazy. The customary Thursday post came up on Tuesday and the Sunday post is literally coming up at the last minute. Yours Truly was one of the Official Media for Kansas City Fashion Week, which concluded last Saturday. So for the next few weeks, my blog is going to see a deluge of KCFW posts, as I will bring for you, details about all that I wore , and highlights from each of the days. And lastly the Trends to watch out for in Spring Summer 2016. So lets start off the blogging marathon with my OOTD for the first day.

Kansas City Fashion Week Spring Summer '16 took the party to the pool. Before the signature shows started at Union Station, the KCFW management took the Runway to the Pool at One Light Luxury Apartments in downtown KC. Azure waters, flashy colored lights, the towering buildings of downtown created the perfect ambience, as Fashion took centre stage.

Pools always make me desire for resort wear. Flowy fabrics played on my mind, as I stood in my closet trying to put together an outfit.

I opted for a Caftan Top in silk, which had beautiful tropical flowers on it. For me it screamed about the water. I knew we had officially stepped in to fall, but the weather was just perfect for a Summer pool party. My Fall element in my outfit was my skirt. Or lets just say, the fabric details on my skirt. It was an Asymetrical Skirt , half of which had faux leather. I wanted to bring out my heels for these few days, so for the first night, it was my trusty Cole Haan Pointy Toe Patent Leather Pumps, which just had a hint of heel in it. Isn't there something sexy about Pointy Toe shoes.

 For my Accessories, I wanted to play up the Blues in my top, and continue the Aqua theme.  I opted for my Chunky Turquoise Necklace and two pairs of earrings for my ear piercings .They were in two shades turquoise, as is often the case of gemstones, that two stones will rarely be in the same color. These are traditional Navajo Jewellery which I had picked up during a trip to New Mexico.

My Zara Rose Gold Bag with gold studs and my Gunmetal Citizen Eco Drive Watch added the finishing touches.

I love me some Smokey eyes, and I love the versatility you can achieve by playing up with colors. The possibilities are just endless. The Aqua theme carried on in my choice of eye color. I used Side Car from Urban Decay Naked 1 Palette in my inner half of the eye lids. MAC Eye Shadow in Deep Truth for the outer half of the eye lids and I dragged it into the crease. It sa true Dark Blue with a touch of frost.  Then I took a clean blending brush and blended away the hard lines. Then I opted for the color Naked from Urban Decay Naked 1(which is very close to my skin color) and used it further to buff away the harsh ones along the crease and outer corner. this helped to smoke it out further. I cleaned out the fall outs with a make up wipe, and then went ahead to do my base. When using darker eye shadows, its sometimes a better idea to do the eyes first and then clean up and do the base. Clinique Beyond Perfecting Skin Foundation  is my latest go to foundation, and I use it in the color Golden Neutral now that I am super tanned with all the Summer Sun. MAC ProLongwear Concealer in NW 20 under the eyes and on the bridge of the nose and on the cupid's bow. Sorry, I had forgotten to mention that I had used Urban Decay Primer Potion in Original as my Eyeshadow Base. Milani Luminoso Blush as I wanted to bronze up my face further for the pool. MAC CremeCup seemed the right shade of blue toned nude pink. Lots and lots of Maybelline Volum' Express The Falsies Waterproof Mascara  in Very Black and MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack

So if you liked my outfit and make up and wanted to re-create it, don't forget to tag #Journospeak in your social media posts. I would love to see all of them. And to help you in your shopping, I have listed all the outfit, accessories and make up details.
