I’ve only been blogging since February, so I still consider myself a “baby” at fashion blogging. However, attending New York Fashion Week has been on my bucket list since I started. I’ve heard so much about it, so I wanted to see what all the hype was about first hand. I had no idea what to expect on any level and I went by MYSELF which totally isn’t like me. Luckily, I met up with some super sweet ladies, one in particular. Of course, what to WEAR was the biggest thing on my mind. I knew there would be some off the wall craziness. I wanted to stay true to my own personal style which I call “mommy glam-chic” which I totally just made up. But, I really do think that describes it in a nut shell. I used to dress up for the airports (I have no idea why) but it was ALL about comfort this time around. The more kids I have, the more I think about comfort! These jeans and sneakers make the perfect travel attire! Shop them here!
On Day 1 of NYFW I wanted to wear something with color! I wanted to make a statement in a classy, chic sort of way. And I had 3 shows to attend and a blogger party, so I needed to be semi-comfortable. These shoes were surprisingly comfortable until the end of the day. And for some reason, I think leopard goes with everything! And the fit of this dress is amazing. It runs on the small side. I am typically a size 2/4 and I ordered a 4 and it fit like a glove! This dress is fabulous for the price!!
The Style Collective blogger party was that same evening. The attire was “cocktail” which can be broad. I opted for this white romper with a blazer over it! I am a major fan of rompers. They are a fun, trendy alternative to a dress. And how cute is this red wall we found?? There are so many great places to take pictures in NY!
On day 2 of fashion week, denim was calling my name. I hardly saw anyone wearing jeans, but I just wanted to! I paired dark skinny denim with this AMAZING statement ruffle top. The details on this top seemed very high fashion or “couture” to me, but minus the high end price tag. I also paired this top with leather pants to dress them up! I think this top is my absolute favorite right now and I love that gingham is carrying over into fall!
Day 3 of fashion week was a half day for me. I had to head to the airport around noon. My friend Amanda and I rode all the way across town and stood in line for over an hour. When we approached the doors, they closed and the usher said “we’re sorry, we’ve reached capacity.” That was a bummer especially since we supposedly had confirmed seating. Since we went to the trouble to get dressed up, we just took pictures! FYI, taking pics in NYC without a photobomb of some sort is next to impossible!
I love this outfit because it is totally timeless and chic. You really just can’t go wrong with black and white and the floral gives it a color pop.
One of the highlights of my trip was getting a photo at the “like to know it” wall. If you aren’t familiar with “like to know it” it is the app that rewardstyle bloggers like myself use to link our products on Instagram. You simply download the app and take a screenshot of any IG picture you want to shop. All of the product info will instantly be in your app. I know…genius, right? This wall was located in the lower East side and was absolutely adorable! It was such a fun memory!
I got to meet my IG friend Amanda in person! She and I had messaged each other, but it was amazing to meet her in person. She is just the sweetest. Follow her on IG as @5feetoffashion and her blog is 5feetoffashion.com.
Overall, my first NYFW was an amazing experience! I learned a lot and will do some things differently next time! My next post will be about the runway looks. So stay tuned!! As always, thanks for reading and please follow my blog if you haven’t already!!!
