Finally home from NYFW and you guys I am not happy about it!! I want to go back and I’m already ready to start planning for next year. This trip just refreshed me as a blogger and got me excited about blogging again, which was much needed. I’ve been so absent from this space and really needed a kick in the booty to get it together. If only I felt the same way about unpacking my clothes from NYFW lol.
When @humanlyus asked Amanda and I earlier this year if we wanted to go to NYFW, I jumped on the opportunity! I’ve never been to New York and to get to go for the first time during fashion week just seemed like an obvious decision. Looking back I am so glad I said yes because it was beyond worth it! I went with some of my fav blogger babes @amandasok @humalyus @courtneybuechle! I totally recommend getting a group together that are in the same space as you and try to go to shows and everything together. I wouldn’t consider myself and awkward person but I don’t like mingling events alone or traveling alone. Something most might not know about me unless we’ve traveled together is that I suck with directions so I’m really thankful Amanda was so on top of things and so great with navigating us!
Our first day in New York was seriously my fav!! It made up for our terrible travel experience on Thursday!! If you missed all of my stories we flew out of OKC and into Chicago only to find out that our flight, along with everyone else who flew southwest that day was canceled due to “air traffic control”! Which is the biggest eye roll since every other airline was flying into NYC. They also only offered us $14 meal vouchers which was ridiculous!! Shout out to @mollyann for sending us $15 each for a drink! It’s sad when a friend sends you more money than a corporation! So anywho we flew into Philly rented a car and drove our booties all the way to New York in the middle of the night. This was an experience I will never forget and pray never happens again bc I had the worst anxiety!!
Flashing forward Friday was a blast and we got to attend our first fashion event with @katespade and @samsung! Where we got to hear the new Kate Spade director of design and new CEO talk about the up and coming spring collection and all of the changes we should expect from the brand moving forward! I also got to take a picture with the new CEO and creative director for Kate spade!
Friday evening we went to our first fashion show for the Afffair and it was such a blast! I’ve gone to some local fashion shows and watched them on tv but obvi way better in person! After the show we headed off to Dinner at Catch NYC! If you make a trip to NYC this is for sure a place you have to eat at. We ate a several trendy spots and this was by far the best food! During dinner we all put our phones in the middle of the table face down and went around telling our highs and lows for the day. Seriously we did this every night and I now want to implement it into my day to day life. We spent so much time on our phones during the day it was just so nice getting to take a moment and really be in the moment. Prob one of my fav parts of the trip.
After dinner we headed to Times Square and honestly it wasn’t what I expected and kind of reminded me of Vegas... not a fan. Also by then my feet were dying!!! If you didn’t catch my story I was sent @kttape to use for blister prevention and I swear it’s the only reason I left New York blister free! That stuff is just so amazing! Honestly day 1 was such a blast and everything a girl could dream of!!
We decided to get up early to get some outfit pics which of course was half a disaster because of the rain but also turned out to be some of my favorite photos!! We got to attend Kendra Scott’s grand opening which was seriously so fun they had “coffee and clothes” there making the cutest drinks and we got to look around and shop the new store! If you visit it’s a must see for sure! I mean it’s two stories!!!
One of my highs for the day was purchasing my brand new Louis Vuitton crossbody! I’ve been wanting one forever and I had saved enough so that was so fun for me!
After shopping we went to Top of the Rock for pics which was the one thing I was truely looking forward to this whole trip and of course it was pouring rain! Luckily our Photog @hannahpiercephotography was an absolute rockstar and these photos turned out amazing!!
We basically got rained out which meant no Brooklyn bridge photos but we ended up shooting at the Flat Iron district and got some of the best bagels ever!! After that we went shopping in the upper east side mainly “window shopping” bc hi New York is expensive AF I mean I spent $700 on Lyfts and food.... In 3 days...... yeaaaa.....
Overall this trip was probably one of the best trips I’ve ever taken and will truely cherish these moments forever. This has been a dream of mine every since I wasn’t little and to be able to go and to go with such inspriring ladies made if that much better! Now off to plan next years NYFW!!!
Also if you are wanting a fun recap of our trip I made a little video!!
