It’s been an inspiring few days.
I decided to forgo NYFW and instead have been hanging out in the Midwest, breaking in my new fall gear in REAL fall temps (oh hey 50 degree weather — it’s been a while). If you follow me on Instagram, you know I’ve been in Madison, Wisconsin all weekend, cheering my babe on during his first Ironman race. And spoiler alert, he kicked some serious ass!
Some times you have to make the tough calls. And the reality is, the people I love mean more to me than anything else in this world. As difficult as it was to turn down NYFW, It was far more important for me to be there to support my love during one of the most grueling physical challenges he’ll ever take on.
As much as I love Fashion Week, it will happen twice a year, every year for years to come. And in the meantime, I’ll be satisfied in my decision to get my fill of hoards of cheering crowds, crisp autumn weather, and craft beer.
