This past week I spent a few days in New York City exploring, since I have never seen anything beyond the busy Times Square area before. Since I knew we would be doing a lot of walking, packing light was key so that I could carry all of my luggage with me between trains and hotels. I managed to fit everything into my houndstooth backpack by deciding to re-wear some pieces, such as jewelry, shorts, and shoes, from one day to the next. I had a fun trip including sightseeing, wandering, catching up with friends, and doing some window shopping. I was also excited to take my new Kate Spade cross-body bag for a spin in the city.
On the first day I wore this light chambray sleeveless dress, minimal jewelry, and after the initial walk to the hotel had to change into my matching light blue sneakers. (The second day I actually had to buy a pair of running sneakers to keep my feet happy, and they made such a difference!) My hair ended up super wavy after we got caught in a rain storm and I also spent much of the day battling the buttons on this dress which kept trying to come loose! But even so, this light easy dress was a good choice for a travel outfit and very comfortable for walking around the city.
