What I Wore in NYC

PACKING STRATEGY

My packing technique seems to either be wait last minute and throw a variety of my favorite pieces into a bag or methodically try each and every outfit on so I don’t under- or over-pack and am confident my outfits will work. Guess which strategy works better? Planning ahead is definitely a lot easier for shorter trips when you typically have a clear idea of what your vacation is going to look like and consist of, as opposed to three weeks in Asia with no clue what to expect (this was me 2 years ago). SO, for our four day/three night trip to New York, my girlfriend and I planned out our outfits ahead of time – meaning tried them all on, took pictures, made sure everything fit, etc. And here they are below. My idea for this trip was to pack lightly with pieces I could take from day to night and keep to a pretty classic style theme. NYC is tricky because you’re walking A LOT, but it’s also one of the major fashionable capitals of the world (a.k.a. serious street style inspo everywhere you turn). This means bringing your comfiest A-game.
