NYFW Outfit 2: What I Learned

September 20, 2017

Today I am sharing my second look from NYFW. It’s hard to pick a favorite, but I love this one because it’s just more fun than a typical look from me. If ever there was a time for fun fashion, it is New York Fashion Week. I’d been wanting a pair of pants like this with the kick flare at the hem and was delighted to find these for under $100. The sheer tunic made the perfect pairing. I like how the longer length worked with the side slit. It isn’t a piece I’d normally buy, but now that I have it I am seeing all kinds of ways it could be worn. I look forward to pairing it with jeans, and I even think it would be cool over a fitted dress. Embroidery is such a big trend for fall, so I think this will be a fun piece.

Saturday I wore this to the Kendra Scott open house and then to the Banana Republic presentation. I’d planned to go to the Rebecca Minkoff after party, but the events were back to back and, well, see number 3 below. I was so bummed. Next time I will just go to the event and assume things won’t start on time or will run longer. I felt so stupid.

NYFW What I Learned

  1. Arrive with your outfits planned out – I mentioned this on Monday’s post, but I failed to do this and it ended up making everything more stressful. I had hoped to do some shopping while there because, hello, it’s NYC. But having to find all my looks once there was not the way to go.
  2. Nothing starts on time
  3. It takes forever to get from one place to another – I had three things back to back on Saturday and missed one because of how long it took to get from one place to the next even though they weren’t that far from each other. If only I’d known number 2 because when I arrived at the third one it started so late I could have totally made the second….
  4. Don’t put too much stress onΒ your outfits – I did, and I regret it. People are literally in everything from jeans to dressy outfits to crazy outfits. I’m sure whatever you have picked you will be beautiful in and represent yourself well.
  5. It’s fun – I bet you could have guess that, huh? I loved getting to meet other bloggers I’d interacted with online in person and see ones I’d met previously again. Getting to go to brand meetings and shows is a dream. Plus, NYC is awesome!
  6. It’s busy – I literally felt like we ran the whole time, and I know I didn’t have that much compared to many bloggers. Next time I think I will try to plan more down time to enjoy the city more. On a related note, I would recommend just picking the things you really want to go to and RSVP’ing no to the others. Another learning experience for me.
  7. Comparison is inevitable, but you are wonderful – It’s pretty impossible to love fashion, go to the fashion capitol of the US with a ton of other people who love fashion and are doing the same thing you are and not feel some sense of comparison. That doesn’t however mean you are any less. That is what I decided in the end, and if you ever go I hope it is what you decide too.

    Oh that’s a stunning tunic! I love it, and I’m so tempted to get it even though I know it’s completely impractical for my life right now. I could see it working perfectly over a slip dress like you said πŸ™‚

    I hope you still had some fun in New York despite the downsides and negatives you experienced.

    Thank you for the link up!

    You look so on point in this outfit, perfect for NYFW! Thanks for sharing your experience and you could not be more right about comparison it’s so important to try not to compare especially in the blogging world.

  • Reply Rachel September 20, 2017 at 5:20 am

    All of these are so true, especially that nothing ever starts on time and that it takes forever to get from point A to point B! I feel like the majority of time I was there, I was traveling to get to some place else! This sheer tunic is gorgeous. I love the detailing and the colors. Perfect with those cute flared pants!

    xo, Rachel

    Another fabulous outfit for fashion week…I especially love your red mules! What you said at the end in regards to comparison is so very true and something I know I have to remind myself often. While blogging is wonderful, it can also really get to your self esteem if you’re not careful. Great post!

    These pants are really fun but you matched them perfectely with the long tunic. The pictures turned out really cool! So professional πŸ™‚ was it the first time you went on a weekend trip without your little one? I think I will never forget my first weekend without my girl – it was wonderful but of course I also missed her somehow πŸ™‚ Thank you a lot for your last comment on my blog πŸ™‚
    Sending much love!

    Oh my! Amy, you looked like a star in this outfit! Fabulous!! LOVE your ruffled pants and floral top.
    I also loved reading through your NYFW facts and yes, I can totally see how nothing ever starts in time and that it might get a while to get from one place to another in NYC esp. during such busy times as FW.
    Also, having fun and not putting too much stress on the outfits is important to have a good after feeling once the fashion week is over.
