I wore this slouchy white blouse + boyfriend jeans on one of our last days in New York during fashion week. It was definitely my most casual look of the week, and definitely my favorite look! I’ll be honest with y’all – packing for something like NYFW is super overwhelming and slightly intimidating. You’re surrounded by some of the most fashion-forward people in the world, but you also have brand meetings to go to, and still want to stay true to your style all at the same time.
In past seasons, I’ve really tried to branch out during NYFW when it came to planning my outfits. My theory was “I would never wear this in Dallas but why not try it in NYC?!” While there’s NOTHING wrong with that way of thinking…this year I went way more with a “jeans and a tee” packing strategy, because it’s true to who I am and my style.
I still got dressed up for things here and there, but overall the outfits I packed were pretty casual, and really true to how I dress on an every day basis. Not only did that make packing easier, but I just felt more myself throughout the week. Like…if I would’ve been in leather leggings and a leopard top with stiletto heels and crazy bright lipstick, I just wouldn’t have been comfortable or felt like “me”. (I don’t know why that’s the first outfit that came to mind when I thought of New York haha).
Anyway…I just want to encourage y’all, if you have anything coming up where you’re stressing about what to wear or what to pack…it’s always a good idea to be yourself! Dress in whatever you feel the most comfortable in, and the most YOU in!
By the way…these boyfriend jeans are less than $90 and were SUCH a good purchase! I’ve gotten so much use out of them, and always get compliments on them!
