NYC / NYFW Day #1 Recap!

So excited to finally share all my pictures from NYC! This past week I flew to the city with two of my blogger friends, Averie and Lexi! We decided pretty last minute to go for fashion week and I'm so glad we did. We went for the last two days of fashion week and were able to catch a few shows and see some great designs! While there I also did a few personal projects like taking over ZeroUV's Instagram and checking out the essence makeup offices! However, you'll just have to stay tuned for Days #2 and #3 to hear more about those! We spent the week finding amazing places to eat, taking TONS of photos, and walking until our feet were covered in blisters!

Check out what we did on day #1:

Whenever I arrive to NYC Taylor Swifts "Welcome to New York" song immediately plays in my head. And what's travel without documenting what outfit you traveled in? haha! This look above is what I wore on the plane Tuesday morning. The flight from Chicago to NY is pretty short, we woke up at 3:45 to catch our early morning flight, so comfort was definitely what I was going for! Printed loose fit joggers, a graphic tee, and studded boots was my outfit of choice and I added a long cardigan and leather jacket because, more layers the better, and the more weight I could fit in my luggage! Literally all of our suitcases were maxed out in weight so Averie and I decided to split a second one... oops haha!

So since we got to the hotel pretty early, we weren't able to check in yet so we stored our luggage and packed up our outfits to wear for the day. We headed across town to where Olivia Rink was staying and we all did our hair on got dressed there! We literally looked like bag ladies walking down the streets. I had my backpack with my camera and laptop, my cross body purse, and a larger bag full with my hair products, makeup, and clothes! I ended up wearing this gorgeous printed Marie La Mode maxi paired with a fun oversized blazer jacket and floral cross body. 

I wore this look out with Averie for a quick bite to eat. We ended up checking out De Maria and we both got a "Tiger Bowl" -- Filled with coconut grains, salmon, avocado, and other yumminess! 

After lunch we headed back to the hotel, got checked in, and got ready for our first show! I wore a beautiful black maxi length dress via Anthropologie. Definitely one of my new faves. That night we were all invited to the BERENIK presentation where they had their collection displayed. We were lucky because they switched the show date from the 7th to the 12th! The models were epic and their makeup was super unique and fun. If you saw my Instagram story that night, you saw the cool moves they all did. They had models lined along the walls, and then two runways where they danced. Since it was a presentation we were able to walk through it all up close and personal! Check it out -- 

After the show we stopped to take a few pictures before dark and then got a quick bite to eat before heading back to the hotel for the night!

That's a wrap for day #1
Check back tomorrow for day #2!

xoxo Lisa
