Sweaters & Skirts

New York Fashion Week, Day One: 9/4/14

For the first official day of NYFW, I wore a BCBG skirt and sweater from Zappos! I’m all about the boxy cropped tops (not to be confused with a crop top.. no midriff baring here!) and higher-waisted pants and skirts right now. I love the play on proportion!

I’m not one of those people that tries to dress in my most outlandish clothing during fashion week. I actually think it’s kind of silly when people do wear things just for the sake of getting photographed. Personally, I could really care less if I get snapped by a street style photographer. Would it be cool? Of course, but it’s not what I’m thinking about when I pick out an outfit. I try to dress just as I would any other time of the year… fashion-forward, but practical at the same time. When you’re going from the early AM to the late hours of the night, it’s so much easier with realistic clothing choices.

I took over the Zappos Instagram for the BCBG show in the morning, worked from a cafe for a few hours, and then made an outfit change for the Jay Godfrey presentation in the afternoon. I’ll be posting that look tomorrow so check back then!

On a side note, I’m obsessed with this sweater and this skirt. The material of the skirt is AMAZING… It’s a thicker scuba-like material. Definitely not neoprene, but has the same sort of feel so it keeps it’s flirty, flouncy shape. The sweater is so cozy and the boxy fit is awesome. (May or may not be wearing it again right now as I type this. True story.) I know I’ll be wearing it all season long!

    You look super cute, Jess! If I were there I would definitely go the practical route as well. Who wants to be tugging at their top all day long when there is stuff to do and people to see?!
