I've been wearing variations of this outfit for a few days now but never got proper outfit shots of it, so here it is. I love this dress, it fits perfectly and the print and color feel so "me." It's always interesting packing for a visit to New York because in my mind New Yorkers are much more chic than I. I think I dress like a country bumpkin a lot more than I realize. Case in point: this outfit (plaid, cowboy boots, scarf...). I don't know. I realize that New York is a place where pretty much every style is represented, so you're not really out of place ever, but I kind of get this feeling of wishing I dressed more like an off-duty model when I go there. I have to remind myself that my style is what it is and I can't change myself to be something I'm not. I'll put my best foot forward in the big city, but I'll probably always be a small town, west coast girl.
This was my best attempt at being NYC-chic. I actually love that outfit and it made me feel Anna-Wintour-powerful, kind of. My other favorite outfit from last fashion week was this one. It was an outfit I ended up putting together last minute after I decided the one I'd planned didn't feel like my style. I don't know if it's a faux pas or not, but I'm totally wearing those same booties to this fashion week. I haven't worn them in months, but as I was putting together outfits, I just had to include them! For those of you who read my post on packing- that's why I have three pairs of heels. Whoops! We'll see just how angry my feet are after a week of walking around in heels...
Alright, well, today I have to do all my last minute stuff for fashion week. I'm getting really anxious/nervous! I just don't want to forget anything. I'm praying all my travels go smoothly. I usually have pretty good travels, so far no horror stories, and I'd like to keep it that way.
Welcome! We're stoked you're here. Get cozy and we hope you're inspired to create a creative and joy-filled life!
