Slow Transition

Grey Sweater White Jeans

Happy Friday, friends. What a week! Despite an afternoon off to lunch/chat with a friend I had a jam-packed week that doesn’t cease over the weekend. With NYFW in full swing, I’m heading to the city today and Monday for meetings, shows, and presentations. Then I’m taking a break on Saturday to attend the Greenwich polo match (v. fancy) and a concert with Anel in the city.

A few thoughts on fashion week… I actually hate it. As a blogger I’m probably not allowed to say that but luckily I’m the boss of this site so I just did! For those of you who see bloggers and celebs at NYFW and feel major FOMO, don’t. I promise it’s a whole lot of people pushing around, trying to be photographed, thinking their hot sh*t, wearing insane outfits. It’s totally not my scene.

Yet for some reason, I always feel FOMO. I think part of that is the fact that it’s a status symbol of sorts to go to shows, attend events, and nab big partnerships. Or maybe because I see my peers having fun and “running around the city all day!!!” and just wonder what I’m missing. But then I inevitably do it myself and remember that it’s not really my thing.

That being said, it’s important for me to go so I can take meetings with people and brands who are in town that wouldn’t be otherwise. I’m definitely skipping the shows so will miss out on most of the madness, but still have the anxiety that I feel going into it every season. Hoping I can get there and not get caught up in it all this time!

Despite it being after Labor Day, we still have a few more weeks of summer so I’m wearing white and not yet switching out my summer clothes for sweaters. However, aย few weeks ago, we had a cool day and I busted out this oversized grey oneย with white jeans for an early dinner at Rowayton Pizza. Miraculously I didn’t spill any red sauce on my pants… Maybe it was a miracle?

  • love this outfit very much, you look super cute!
    could you do an article on wearing heels? i have some cute ones but always opt for flats for comfort and was wondering if you had any advice or tips/tricks to wearing heels out for longer than 10 minutes

    That is exactly what I thought to myself when I read that you are attending NYFW “she does not fit in there” but not in a bad way….you are way too nice and hmmm….normal in comparison to that circus ๐Ÿ™‚ I am a big fan of yours!

  • I feel ya girl. Skipped it altogether this year #sorrynotsorry Also you look adorbs. Miss your face xo

  • Love the sweater and totally agree about Fashion Week! I have FOMO every year, especially because I live here and I’m so close, but when I go to events and shows, it just gives me anxiety and a bad case of the comparisons. Props to you for knowing it’s not your scene and owning it.

    Totally agree about NYFW. I work full time in the industry and sometimes I have FOMO that I can’t attend all of the shows that I want to. I try to only make time for meetings that will be beneficial to my brand and shows of designers that I truly love. It’s a crazy week for sure!

  • I’m always nervous to wear white in to fall (silly, I know), but paired with a cozy sweater and cute heels it looks perfect!

    Hi! Love this outfit. Do you have a link to the necklace?

  • Loving the animal print trend at the moment, with these shoes and I’ve wanted one of those style bags for a while now.

    Julia, Is there an archives button on your page? couldn’t find one. I am long time follower and sometimes like to check out old posts. Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Hi Kela! Thank you so much for following along ๐Ÿ™‚ You can always search for posts in the “search” bar on the right of my site. Let me know if you ever have a problem or are looking for something specific!

  • I’m so glad you said that about NYFW because I was just there and you’re so right. It’s a lot of people in crazy outfits who have major attitudes. I felt really out of place! The one highlight was getting to take my 14 year old daughter to a show and doing a girls’ day in the city afterwards. That and the Sachin & Babi presentation is always beautiful. Other than that, I really wasn’t feeling it. Love this early fall look! Perfect for a casual dinner ๐Ÿ™‚
