This past weekend I traveled to New York City with my best friend Alice and her super cool roomie Oksana and had the best time! The fashion, the food, the atmosphere; it was all incredible! While on this trip I documented some of my favorite outfits I wore to include in this week's blog post. Enjoy :)
EXPLORING AT THE MET
One of our first stops in NYC was The Metropolitan Museum of Art. I wore the comfiest sweats on the plane and changed into this look (shown above) in the airport bathroom because there was no way my first official New York outfit was going to be sweatpants!
I have started to gather a rather large collection of concert merch and wanted to bring a few of my new pieces on this vacation. I saw Blondshell in concert last month (amazing!) and styled her merch with a pink turtleneck, cargos, a black belt, and my favorite white chunky sneakers.
A QUICK STOP AT ROLLER RABBIT
After exploring (and getting lost) at The Met, I threw on my favorite winter jacket (Celia B) and we headed to Roller Rabbit (my favorite store). I was determined to buy the NYC store exclusive pajamas, and as luck would have it the store just restocked them that morning!
NIGHT NO. 1
I really wanted to step out of my comfort zone for my first night out in the city. I decided to channel Jaden Smith's style and pair an oversized sweatshirt with a skirt. I wore my Lady Gaga hoodie (another nod to my love of artist merch) and rounded out the look with vegan Doc Martens. You can't quite tell in the photos, but I fastened safety pins into my braids to make the look even edgier.
AN AFTERNOON IN DUMBO
I was very excited to wear this look out in the city, and I even got a few compliments on my matching outfit! (It's so flattering when fashionable New Yorkers tell you they like your outfit!) This matching set is from Celia B, one of my favorite fashion brands. I added some colorful hair clips and my white chunky sneakers to complete the look.
NIGHT NO. 2
I also packed my Suki Waterhouse tee to style for a night out in NYC. I wore the concert tee as a dress, added a white turtleneck underneath, threw on some tights, went for minimal jewelry, and rounded out the look with my Doc Martens. The beautiful purse in these photos is my friend Alice's :)
NEW YORK FASHION WEEK
On Saturday we attended an afternoon show for New York Fashion Week. Let me tell you, this was such a good event for people watching! I've been to a few fashion shows in Chicago but never in New York and never for a fashion week, so it was such a new and fun experience. I wanted to wear something fun and colorful, so I went with this stunning Celia B dress paired with an orange turtleneck and pale pink tights. I've been wanting to try this Decora-inspired hairstyle and thought fashion week would be the perfect place to wear it. I bought regular and star shaped hair clips and added 10-15 of them on top of my head.
We left on Sunday and my look consisted of the same green cargo pants from Thursday, a black Phoebe Bridgers concert tee, black belt, and white chunky sneakers. I absolutely adored New York City and I cannot wait to go back one day :)
SEE YOU NEXT SATURDAY WITH ANOTHER FASHION POST.
