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.

    You definitely have the right attitude, Amy Ann. Nothing about NYFW should be taken too seriously. It’s about having fun, being yourself and sharing your own unique sense of style. I’ve always admired your relaxed confidence and your down to earth attitude (Mom did a good job instilling the right values πŸ™‚ ). Loving your outfit choice! You look amazing in that gorgeous floral tunic and those kick flare pants! Just a beautiful look!

    One of my favourite NYFW outfits of yours! I think this is what you were wearing on the Banana Republic Day? I wasn’t 100% sure it was you because I saw the side of you for a millisecond lol but I wish I said hi! Next time for sure!

    This embroidery on this tunic is so pretty! Thanks for sharing your learnings! I think it would be great to meet some of my fellow bloggers in real life. The lesson about not over-scheduling yourself if so key. I would probably have total FOMO and then run myself ragged. I’m glad you had a good time!
