This past week I traveled with my mom and sisters, and my sweet Aunt Paula to Chicago! It was such a wonderful trip. My travel companions were the highlight of my trip, but Chicago put on a beautiful show. Seriously, I could rave about Chicago all day. I really didn’t expect to love the city as much as I did.
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).
Instagram overload may be in order this time around, and I’ll be linking these travel outfit ideas on Pinterest, as well! Happy Wednesday, humans.
