Hi Friends! I am writing this in advance because today (Monday) I will be happily at the beach with my husband’s family. We go every year together, and this year is Ivy Jean’s first time. We are so excited to see her put her little toes in the sand for the first time and experience the roar of the ocean. There’s nothing quite like it. I’ve been thinking about how I do a poor job of sharing much personal on here through no one’s fault of my own. I often default to outfit details assuming no one cares much about anything else. That may be very true. Feel free to look at just the pictures. I can promise I won’t be offended, but I plan to share a little more when I have something to share.
Real Thoughts on New York Fashion Week
On the heels of getting back from our beach trip, I’ll be repacking my suitcase to head to New York for Fashion Week with my sweet mama. I had the pleasure of going with her two years ago, and we had the time of our lives. I got a last minute invite to the rewardStyle party, and we booked an equally last minute trip. Today I thought I’d share some real thoughts on New York Fashion Week.
This year I got a not so late invite to the rewardStyle party and had been considering going for a while hoping to make a bit more of the trip as not quite so much a novice. I’m chuckling to myself as I type that because boy do I feel like a novice. The truth is I’m not sure there is anything quite like Fashion Week to make you insecure. At least it does for me. As I send out inquiries asking for show invites and hear nothing back, try to plan outfits for events I don’t know I’ll actually be going to, and read forums of bloggers who already have things lined up and seem to know way more than I do, I found myself feeling bad.
Then I sat back and thought to myself… get a grip. You are going to New York with your mom. That alone is amazing! I’ve been invited to several things I’m thrilled about. Who cares if my calendar doesn’t have any blank space – more time for shopping! Last time I went, I met bloggers in person I still keep in contact with and love! I’m not a big blogger by any means. I don’t have any false pretenses about backstage passes and special treatment. I am thankful for every opportunity that comes my way because of this little space, and I am flat grateful I even get to go to Fashion Week. So, I am determined I will quit stressing about the events and the outfits and have fun.
NYC fashion week will be a ‘piece of cake’ for you….As long as you have fun with mom and look fab while doing it!

Have the best time at NYFW! It sounds like it’s going to be a lot of fun, and can’t wait to follow along!

Being invited in itself is amazing! I was going to go last year and the invitation fell through. I felt really bad and inadequate at first, but comparing is never a positive thing and keeps you from enjoying the experience. I hope you have a great time, I can’t wait to see your outfits!

I think it’s amazing that you are going to New York fashion week! It’s honestly one of my dreams to make it there, but my blog is so so tiny that I’m not sure I’ll ever get the chance. Thank you for your thoughts on this, can’t wait to hear more!
Love this top! The print is super cute!
Nothing like seeing your kid doing new things. Share with us when you come back.
This is the cutest outfit! How exciting about NYC – just enjoy the opportunity and have so much fun with your mom. Hope you’re enjoying the beach, too!
This is such a cute outfit! I love all of the blue. Thanks for the honesty on NYFW – I actually decided not to go this year because I didn’t feel like I was ready for all of that. You will have a great time with your mom! Enjoy 🙂
You gonna have so much in NYC. Love this outfit, the top looks so pretty on you.
