Fashion Season: NYFW FW18

I went back and forth on whether or not I wanted to brave the cold this winter and go to New York for fashion week. I do NOT like to be cold, like at all. When my husband is traveling, the heat is on and the house is set to 74 sometimes 76 degrees. Give me ALL the warmth. BUT, I love fashion week and I love being in NYC, so off I go! I couldn't resist.  

I have an exciting event my first day in town with a brand many of you know and love. It's a NYFW experience that they are hosting for a few people in the industry. I was honored to be included and definitely wouldn't miss it for the world! I can't wait to share more details on this. My recap will be up on the blog hopefully Wednesday night if I'm not totally exhausted. 

I have a few shows lined up each day and plan to share a full recap and outline of each day for you guys as I have time to get the posts up! I always laugh because people think I'm on vacation in NYC, when really I'm glued to my computer, pumping out content trying to recap everything and showcase the designers I saw the best way possible. I meet a lot of bloggers and creative entrepreneurs who come to NYFW and don't care about seeing the shows, but that's just not me! Give me all the fashion! I love to see designers making their NYFW debut and I love seeing old favorites and how they evolve over the years. I still think about how incredible Leanne Marshall's show was last year, I literally had to wipe a tear from my eye. I can't wait to see who amazes me this season! 

While in the city I love to shoot, it'll be a mixture of outfits and scenery that I plan to do this time around. NYC is the perfect backdrop. I love walking the streets and getting inspired for what I want to do next.

As far as my personal style goes, I haven't totally planned my outfits. Which is so not like me. I usually have 2 huge suitcases packed with options, on option, on options, but I'm trying to make this trip as stress free as possible so I'm just going with the flow. Thankfully a few brands have sent me some pieces to style for the few days I'm in town, so that has made things a bit easier!

I also didn't want to spend a ton on clothing to create new street style looks, so I'm taking my own advice and using the clothes that I have in my closet to recreate looks. After all, that's what true style is right? Everything doesn't have to be brand new! I look forward to showing you what I come up with. 

3.5 days, lots to do and see ... so be sure to follow along! NYFW is my favorite work trip to take each year! So excited! I'll be sharing my day in real time via Instagram Stories, are you following me on Instagram? If not, what are you waiting for? :)
