I leave for NYC Thursday morning (my birthday whoo!) Seriously, I feel like such the jet setter- our plane arrives in New York in the early evening, we check into our hotel, and then it's off to dinner where we have reservations at Blossom. I'm beyond excited, but I also at a loss as to what the heck to pack. There is something intimidating about packing for New York - I really try not to let these things get to me but, it is a fashion city - it's where all those impossibly chic street photos are taken you know, the ones where every guy and gal looks like a model. And, much like LA, I feel that people in NYC actually notice what other people are wearing. At least when I visit in LA I can haul a bunch of clothes down with me, or borrow my sister's stuff.
The question is, why do I feel wardrobe challenged/nervous when traveling to these two destinations- since I usually don't care about being super on trend - or wearing the latest and 'of the moment' designer duds ? I'm being ridiculous I know, but I can't help it. NY, LA, you guys are too hip for me. * Seriously you city girls have got great style that I really admire, and get great inspiration from.
I've got one day left and I haven't even thought about what to bring until now.
I know I'll need comfy shoes and I was advised to bring a coat - I will also need two dinner dresses (for two fancy dinners) and something that is appropriate to wear when we go apple picking Sunday afternoon. Oh, and a Halloween Costume of sorts (I'm thinking of going as Wednesday Adams) - Is this too much?
How do you decide what to pack? Do you have a strategy? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
