It’s been awhile since my last trip to NYC, and I’m dying to go back. The summers are usually hot, and sometimes (ok, usually) humid. The sweater is light and perfect to layer on a plane, while the other items leave plenty of options for outfit changes and such. If you want to lighten your load even more, I’d remove the one of the skirts and striped tee. If you don’t plan to go anywhere nice, leave the heels at home. I think my favorite piece from this list is the sunglasses, they are so quirky and different. You can shop the links above and see outfits below.

How awesome! I’m heading to NYC soon, and I know it won’t be nearly as hot as Texas lol. This is a great list to help me prepare!

Love all of your outfit choices!! If I’m in the city, I def would bring comfy shoes and that probably all that would be on my “must bring” list. now, NYC in the winter is a whole different story!

These are such awesome tips! A bunch of my friends went to NYC a few weeks ago, and I think all of this info would have really helped them – they kept texting me telling me how they were melting in the NYC heat!

Amazing outfits. I love how they can be mixed and matched. This is something I need to work on when I’m packing. I feel like I throw everything in my suitcase without giving much thought to being able to mix it up. I love the denim skirt with the Nikes!!!

I always try to pack in neutral colors for trips so that my outfits can go further. Great ideas!

OBSESSED with everything you put together! They are amazing looks! Love those black loafers!!


THAT bucket bag. I need. You created some amazing packing ideas/outfit ideas! Love them all!

I’m lusting after it so hard right now. Right after the sunnies. I have a thing for weird sunglasses, haha.
