Hey Inspirafashion readers! I’m Chelsea from Zipped, and I’m very happy to be sharing on Kathleen’s blog today. We’re traveling to New York Fashion Week together this week, which only makes sense after being blog buds for the past four years! We started talking right after we each started our own blogs and realized we have a million things in common including the same birthday, which made us instantly #BBFFs (best blogger friends forever)!
Over on my blog, you’ll find her NYFW travel essentials, while you’ll find mine below. Hope you enjoy, and be sure to follow along on our adventures on Instagram @kathleencarla and @truelane!
I almost always end up wearing all black during fashion week; it’s the same for traveling, but I like to keep it a lot more casual. A chambray tank adds the perfect base layer for a cozy sweater while sneakers make it easy to dash through the airport if needed. This is the perfect bag for traveling as well, all the pockets make it easy to keep all of your documents and necessities within reach!
My number one advice for a first-time fashion week attendee is to stay organized! Keep a planner on you at all times to make sure all of your shows and events are in line. And yes, staying organized includes hair ties and a watch…things you always need!
Finally, health and beauty-wise, NEVER forget to bring towelettes! Strappy heels and sandals are go-tos for NYFW and the streets of New York are dirty; you’ll always want to freshen up. Finally, I usually bring along Neosporin (you never know), a good lotion, and a couple nail color options. Plus, make-up setting spray for the last of these hot summer days!
Can’t wait for Kathleen and I to be in the Big Apple together–we wish every one of you was coming with us, so be sure to follow along on our adventures via social media!
