This week was one of those weeks. In addition to being all-around crazy, it also kicked off NYFW, which means pressure was on to dress. But I also was battling a cold, like everyone else I know, and it was bitterly cold in NYC, which meant it was hard to motivate to get out of bed, much less get dressed. I seriously struggled, but I felt better seeing my fellow editors also in jeans, boots and puffer jackets on their way to fashion shows. It’s just too damn cold for anything right now. Here’s how I dressed for my week.
I had a crazy Monday, with doctor appointments, a breakfast meeting, and tons to do at work. I didn’t have a ton of meetings so I went with a more casual look, but stepped it up heeled booties and my new favorite leopard print coat.

Another cold AF day and my day was packed to the brim with meetings and projects, after James kept me up most of the night with a cough, so I went with all-black to really speak to how I felt. Culottes were comfy but look polished and I paired it with a cashmere sweater and fluffy jacket to stay warm because it was frigid and I was running late (per usual) and therefore, had a wet head.

For the first day of Fashion Week, I felt like I needed to try so I tried to throw together one of my most fashun outfits. This white skirt is actually a sundress and I winterized it with black boots and a cashmere sweater and another leopard print coat. I have a problem, but I can’t help myself, it’s different enough, right?

Man this Thursday really felt like a Friday. It was a ~day~ start to finish, and I was exhausted, I just really didn’t want to get dressed. Sadly, I had a few shows to attend and some important people coming into the office and really didn’t want to feel like a schmuck so I braved the cold with a dress and tights. This old Thakoon dress was actually a pregnancy staple because it has no waist. Sadly, that means that it swallows me up now, so I layered a turtleneck underneath and a moto jacket on top to help balance it out and stay warm. I repeated boots, but honestly, I didn’t have time to look for any other shoes, because I was running late per usual after procrastinating on leaving so I could spend a few extra minutes with James.

I don’t think I’ve ever felt so thankful for a Friday before. I wanted to wear sweats to work and almost did, but decided to go with a more presentable look. I mostly had internal meetings with my team, so I didn’t need to look super boss lady, but I had one show to go to after work, so I wanted to step it up with my outerwear and shoes. I figured I could just wrap myself in my coat and look like I had a cuter outfit on underneath. And hey, I wore heels … on a Friday … in 20 degrees. Don’t I deserve a medal for that?
