Six months ago my husband sensed that I needed an outlet and suggested I start a fashion/lifestyle blog. I immediately told him “no”! I mean come on, there are a million bloggers out there and what could I possibly bring to the table? After thinking about it, I realized I had nothing to lose and that it was simply going to be for fun. If I’m successful then great, but if not I’ll still have a hobby! Fast forward six months and it’s been a far greater experience than I could have imagined. I certainly haven’t “arrived” and I’m not paying the mortgage, but I’m having a blast, have met so many amazing women, AND I am headed to NYFW tomorrow!!! I can’t wait to share this amazing experience with you all. I’ll be going live at the fashion shows and sharing the latest trends. So please follow along on the amazing adventure! Thanks so much for your support!
Packing is always the toughest part. Here are my must haves for this fashion adventure!
comfy yet on trend sneakers– we all know going to NYC involves TONS of walking!! So I wanted some shoes that would be functional yet stylish at the same time!
Black tassel earrings– I’m trying not to overpack, so I’m taking accessories that will work with multiple things. These earrings look good with everything!
budget friendly cocktail dress– I have a cocktail event and wanted a dress with drama and high fashion details. Overall my life is NOT dressy and I realize I probably won’t wear it again. So I wanted a dress that appeared expensive, but isn’t! And this one is FAB!!!
water bottle– I have been warned that NYFW is fast paced! So staying hydrated is super important. And I like my water cold!!!
Leather tote– This is the perfect bag to double as a carry on and to use for favors from the runway shows!!
Trendy activewear– Once again it is NYFW so everything needs to be stylish! I wanted to take some comfy pants in case there is anytime for lounging in the hotel room, a stroll in Central park, or a sweat session in the hotel fitness center!
neutral clutch– As I said, I’m trying to use accessories that will work with multiple looks! This neutral clutch will work with all of my dressy looks and I love the chain detail!
Tarte concealer– I swear by this stuff!! No matter how little sleep I get, this concealer brightens my under eye area and covers my blemishes so well!!! I won’t go anywhere without this!!
distressed denim jacket– this versatile jacket will look great over almost anything! And the distressing is right on trend! I’ll be throwing this on numerous times throughout the trip!
Clean Freak Dry Shampoo– this stuff is amazing!! It gives my hair volume on the days I don’t wash my hair and makes it smell so good! This is a major time saver while you are travelling!
