When prepping to pack for New York City I wanted to be sure I ended up with carry on luggage only. No need to tote your entire wardrobe across the country. Plus, I knew that part of our trip would definitely include some shopping; so if I went light, I’d be able to have room for some fun NYC finds.
Here’s what I ended up packing for five nights and six days in the Big Apple!!
Let’s start with the contents of my personal item. I opted for this medium sized Louis Vuitton tote— the sweetest “first year of teaching” gift from my husband. I really only need my wallet, sunglasses, makeup, and most importantly reading material! For my trip to NYC I’m taking along a digital copy of Holl and Lane Magazine.
Holl and Lane is a magazine dedicated to sharing stories that enrich our understanding of one another. This month’s issue focuses on mental health and destigmatizing aspects of mental illness that have often caused a gulf or separation between those suffering from mental illnesses and those who have a hard time understanding the reality of these diseases and disorders. It has been a refreshing read so far. Check them out HERE!
In terms of what to wear, I packed four easy outfits and one perfect party dress. I plan on wearing this plaid frock to Hamilton, and honestly cannot wait for the chance to take in a Broadway show. It’s been a few years (like almost eight years since I saw Wicked on Broadway). Below are my outfit picks for this trip (all linked below).
