Thank goodness NYC is the city that never sleeps. What was supposed to be a 4 hour flight ended up being a 12 hour flight. Which meant instead of having two days to tour the city, we only had one. Thank goodness I packed accordingly and was able to accomplish a lot in just one day.
When choosing an outfit to wear you want to dress for the weather. NYC in November is typically pretty chilly, but if you're constantly on the go and in between shade and sun, you need to pick a versatile and comfortable outfit. Below was my outfit of choice for a full day in NYC. A little bit of casual mixed in with sophisticated that doesn't scream I'm a tourist.
Ivory+black+cognac is a color combination that is fail proof. Whether it's an ivory jacket, black shirt and cognac boots or ivory shirt, black jacket, cognac purse, or ivory pants, black shirt and cognac jacket - they are interchangeable no matter what item it is.
I dressed this outfit up with gold jewelry, a splash of jade, and a Kate Spade purse that was light and easy and carry. Links below for all my items!
Ivory Coat: I purchased mine from Banana Republic many moons ago, but this one fits the bill.
Boots: Born shoes are by far my favorite casual shoes to walk in. I have slightly wide feet so it's hard to find a flat that is comfortable. These are my go to brand for comfort if I'm looking for flats (Julianne's come in all different colors).
Purse: If you don't have a black cross body already, it's worth investing in this one. And it's on SALE!!
