If you guys remember, in January 2016 I did a post announcing that I was starting a Youtube channel. Well, I hope none of you have blacked out from holding your breath, cause the day is finally upon us.
Here we have it, my first video recapping some of my highlights from NYWF. I’d love to hear what you guys think! And if you’re into it, I’d love to have you follow along by subscribing to my channel here.
Links to each of the items I’m wearing are in the description under the vid.
As always, I’m incredibly grateful for all of your support!
For those days where you simply want to wear a t-shirt and jeans, I’ve learned to practice the lazy mans approach to incorporating trends. Cheat pieces if you will, that play on the trends without fully diving in i.e. pops of colour and a la mode accessories.
The scarf for example is no break through item, it’s as basic as the day is long, but worn in an on-trend print or colour it does the trick for those days when you just don’t give AF.
Sunglasses are another no brainer. Stock up on a few inexpensive pairs in the trending shapes and colours and they’ll elevate your outfit effortlessly.
Editor’s note: This strategy works even better when paired with a friend who is nailing all trends consistently (@cheraleelyle).
My first NYFW has come to an end and I’m now sitting in my living room wearing an oversized In N’ Out t-shirt, old pair of pyjama shorts and some mis-matched socks. It’s my favourite outfit of the week. I kid (kind of).
Well I can only recount the last (to be honest I have no idea how many days the ‘week’ actually is) from my own personal experience as I’m positive it is not the same for all those in attendance. There were no private cars for me, just an exorbitant uber bill. I did get body checked by KK’s body guard at the Kendall & Kylie party though – so we’re basically bffs now.
Anyways. My first lesson of the week was that September in New York is the equivalent of living inside the equator. I have yet to learn the weather in fahrenheit (not likely that I will) so it was an average temp of 35° with 1000% humidity and no breeze. Last Friday, at 9:30pm we enjoyed a blissful 37°, I could hardly eat my Tacombi tacos – which is saying a lot as I had tacos for dinner 4 times last week.
So naturally, for the first two days, I wore a Kenzo sweater, ankle boots, and shouldered a bomber as I’ve always been one to dress appropriately for the weather.
