It's that time of year again- I'm headed off to New York Fashion Week bright and early tomorrow morning! It's my third year in a row going and each year I'm even more excited than the last. I can't wait to get to the Big Apple and hit the ground running with meetings, shows, and of course fabulous parties and events. It's going to be interesting this year since I'm still really sick with this pregnancy (throwing up multiple times a day), so I may end up having to cancel a few things while I'm there as to not overdo it. I'm going to do my best though to keep up with a busy schedule and take care of Baby at the same time! I have plans of being in bed by 10pm every night and I don't think I'll have any problems sticking to that regimen.
I'll be back with full recaps as soon as I return- I'm spending a full five days in the city so there will be a lot to fill you guys in on! One night I'm attending the Philipp Plein runway show and I got an invitation to the afterparty where Nicki Minaj is performing, so that should be interesting. I always get a little starstruck seeing celebrities at shows and events; it's the small town girl in me, I guess. Going to NYFW is seriously a dream come true and I'm so thankful Zach is working from home to keep Bear so I can go to be apart of one of the biggest fashion weeks of the year. It's crucial to my styling (and blogging) job, really, so it's pretty important that I'm able to attend. That and it's just a lot of fun. :)
I wanted to share some of what I have packed, even though you'll be seeing all of this very soon! Some items aren't exact because I purchased quite a bit at ZARA and I can't link their products online. I'm overpacking, per usual, but it's better to be too prepared, right?
DRESSES, JUMPSUITS, SKIRTS:
PANTS, JEANS, TOPS:
I'm realizing already there are a few things I forgot to add to those widgets but it's getting late and I'm lazy, so they'll just have to be a surprise! I also ordered a lot of items about three weeks ago that are lost in the world of UPS after Hurricane Harvey; our mail has been such a mess. UPS can't even trace packages at this point so I've had to get creative with outfits since I was holding out until today hoping they'd come. It's been a crazy day- I booked my flights through Spirit Airlines about two months ago and got an email at 4pm that my flight for 6:30am tomorrow morning was cancelled. No explanation, just cancelled. So after spending over an hour on hold, I was able to book new flights with other airlines but it ended up costing almost $400 more than it would have if I'd just booked with them originally rather than Spirit. Lesson learned!
While I'm obviously giddy I'm equally sad to be leaving my boys and off to soak up these last minutes before bedtime- hope you all have an amazing weekend!
