You might have noticed that in lieu of February fashion week in New York, I decided to head somewhere a little bit warmer like Charleston. Growing up in the South, I’ve never been one to easily acclimate to cold weather, so when it was time to decide on whether to head back to NYFW this month, weather definitely played a huge part in my decision. In fact, it’s the reason why I’m not attending fashion week, and why I planned a Charleston girls trip instead!
Not only was I slightly traumatized last year – pipes were bursting all over the city, and we woke up every morning in our hotel with no running water – my winter clothing options were less than satisfactory for actual winter weather let alone running around the city. When Louisiana only has about two weeks of legit winter, you don’t really know how to prepare for 10 degree temperatures!
I actually ended up going home a day early last February. Whatever intuition kicked in was definitely right, because the very next day, snow dumped all over the city delaying and even canceling flights! So it just seemed like a better opportunity this year to check off one of my bucket list travel cities for the year (see that full post here). Don’t get me wrong, I do love NYC, and I do love NYFW, but I think I’m better cut out for September’s shows!
