What are your fashion week must-have essentials and your #1 tip for surviving all things NYFW?

My #1 fashion week must-have? A good group of girlfriends! Nothing makes fashion week more enjoyable and less stressful than navigating the city and attending shows with a squad. I'll be traveling with 3 of my good blogger friends from Chicago. Fashion week essentials: portable phone charger, lipstick, advil, planner, candy, and my grandma's vintage Chanel bag!

Where can we find you in between shows?

We have a jam-packed week planned, so we'll be all over the city in between shows. I'll be shooting outfits, attending brand meetings, stopping in to events, and then it's off to the after parties with the girls!

Where are your favorite spots to relax after a fashion-packed day?

For a warm cup of coffee or tea - Happy Bones in Soho. Great interior inspiration and lattes.

For a glass of champagne with friends - the bar at the Peninsula Hotel overlooking Fifth Avenue. Chic & intimate.

For a chill night with my boyfriend - iPix theatre for the best dinner & a movie experience in the city.  

After it's all finished how do you unwind?

By jumping on a plane and heading straight back home to Chicago! I love the craziness of New York City, but there's no place like home to relax and unwind. Mud masks and red wine with my roommates when I get home sounds about right.
