This lonely California girl is about to take her first bite out of the Big Apple! I’m visiting my best friend who’s on a “make it in New York” mission, and my father who’s “bringing home the bacon” from 3000 miles away. They both just moved there this summer and now that it’s the most beautiful time of year I figure it’s my time to pounce!
…Autumn in New York, how romantic. But what’s a girl born and raised in southern California supposed to pack? (I did live in Portland for 4 years so I’m not too worried) but I do have a goal:
How to pack for a week in New York with just a carry-on?
Have a go to outfit, use accessories to differentiate, rock the shit out of it.
- 1 black jeans
- 1 black leggings
- 1 black boots
- 1 black hat
- 1 black cashmere sweater
- 1 black leather jacket
- 5 neutral shirts
- 3 different scarves
- 4 tubes of lipstick
You can’t go wrong with all black, especially in New York. I’ve got my lipstick for the color pop and my scarves so I have some diversity. I like my outfit staples, and there is seriously nothing more comfortable than jeans and a T-shirt with a good pair of boots.
So here I go! I’m currently waiting at LGB Long Beach Airport (best airport ever). Can’t wait to touch down and see the other side! I’ll keep you posted.
