So, I feel like I have to say this before I post any NYFW outfits:
I gave myself, like, four minutes to shop and plan for Fashion Week.
Literally, I booked my plane ticket less than a week before my first show was scheduled to begin, and I wound up being really busy at work getting everything tied up before leaving for the airport. Most seasons, I start thinking about Fashion Week a month or two beforehand, so I have enough time to pick up new clothes if I need them and put some serious planning into what I’m going to wear.
This year, I was throwing stuff into my suitcase ten minutes before leaving for the airport.
And yet… even at seven months pregnant, I swore I was going to make it work! I was just moaning last week about how I’d bought these white maternity jeans and never had a chance to wear them, so I threw them in. This pale Celine bag (the one I found at T.J. Maxx!) is always a fashion week staple, and I picked up this Zara coat ON CLEARANCE the day before I left.
So, with no time to prepare, a Houston-based wardrobe that’s totally different from NYC weather and being seven months pregnant… I’d say I didn’t do too badly!
ASOS Elgin Skinny jeans (similar non-maternity style here); BCBG top; Zara coat (similar here); Celine bag (a super cute similar one by Alexander Wang here); Ann Taylor necklace; Bracelets: Hermes, Tiffany & Company, Gilt; Rings: Catbird, Dogeared and Claire’s.
