It is getting to the point where I can no longer contain the excitement I have for wedding dress shopping with my sister this coming weekend. The only time I have been to New York City was for less than 12 hours during an unfortunate layover....
so this 3 day trip is a dream come true!
I have read up on how to not dress like a tourist in NYC, but since I can't bring this fabulous Kate Spade capsule wardrobe with me, I have been plotting how to put together stylish outfits for a weekend, while only packing a small carryon.
These key 14 pieces are either exactly or very close to what I have currently piled on my bed to come with.
|1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8 // 9 // 10 // 11 // 12 // 13 // 14|
Besides wedding dress shopping at J.Crew, Macy's & The White Gown, we hope to eat good food, try tasty cocktails, check out a museum or two, peruse the Brooklyn Flea & try our luck at last minute Broadway ticket scouting!
My carry-on packing tips:
- Wear your bulkiest items on the plane
- Pack two shoes max (if I can do it, you can too!)
- Keep the color palette neutral
- Maintain a constant pop of color
- Plan ahead for versatile layers
How do you travel lightly & in-style?
