One of the absolute toughest things about September fashion week is packing for it! Especially packing for it from Texas, where the weather is still in the nineties almost every day. Like when you pack for a tropical vacation in the middle of winter, it’s hard to even imagine there are people wearing bathing suits somewhere on this planet when you’re bundled up in hats and scarves and coats.
And it doesn’t help that New York’s weather went a little insane this season. While I was in town, it was dropping down into the sixties at night (triggering my constant whiny refrain, ‘you guys, I’m so cold‘ — turns out I’ve become a Texan after all!). And then, right after I left, apparently the temperatures shot up and turned super hot! (Kind of sad I missed that, actually!)
Buying for cooler temperatures is also a little tricky in Texas — I obviously want to be stylish at Fashion Week, but I also don’t want to buy clothes that I’ll only wear once or twice because they’re just not practical for where I live. So this denim/leather jacket was a perfect addition — warm enough to keep me cool in September in Manhattan, and for most of the winter in Texas!
