Tonight, I’m excitedly packing for my trip! The girls and I have shared numerous phone calls and emails asking:  “What are you wearing to the club?”  “How many pairs of shoes are you packing?”  “Do I take my big suitcase or my really big suitcase?”  For all you travellers, here is my short-ish list of things to pack for a five-day trip to NYC.  (Why bother packing too much when you are travelling to Shopping-Heaven?)

-          1 coat
-          1 scarf
-          1 blazer
-          1 pair of jeans
-          2 party tops (these should work for both day and night)
-          1 party dress (I’m lying – who packs one? What if the other one is cuter on you that day? We are entitled to freedom of choice, no?)
-          3 tank tops or T-shirts
-          2 sweaters
-          1 pair of flats
-          1 pair of high heels
-          1 pair of flat boots
-          A largish purse
-          An evening clutch
-          1 umbrella (the rule of thumb is: pack an umbrella and it won’t rain.)  
-          Jewelry
-          Undergarments (People, don’t be stingy. I once went on a camping trip and didn’t pack enough underwear. Don’t let it happen to you. The moral of this story is: don’t go camping.)

From right to left, top to bottom: Stella McCartney Missy Organic Wool Coat / Stella McCartney Hawaiian printed scarf / Alexander McQueen mid-rise straight leg jean / Zara graded shopper / Steve Madden jazie oxfords / Kenneth Jay Lane Blue Enamel Circle Necklace / 3.1 Phillip Lim Shoulder Pleat T-Shirt / THE ROW 'Pablo Picasso' sweater / Topshop Black Boyfriend Blazer / Jimmy Choo / Nine West Mariola boot / 3.1 Phillip Lim Fur Print Silk Shirt / Burburry umbrella / Sparkle Spade Bow Clutch by Kate Spade / White + Warren Poncho Sweatshirt / Michael Kors Delight Knit Sleeveless Vest Top / Stella McCartney Hawaiian printed silk shirt / Marc by Marc Jacobs Paloma Silk Crepe Self Belt Dress


  1. Have fun on your trip to NYC. And make sure that you have extremely comfy (but still cute) walking shoes (you'll probably be doing lots of it).

    I wish I had all of the items pictured above


    1. Best. Wish. Ever! I promise to wear comfy shoes! To be honest, I always get a little shoe-crazy, so I'll probably be packing a few extras! Hee hee!

  2. Oh, this sounds so exciting! I can't wait to hear more about your NY adventure and see the photos! Have fun!
