wheels up gang, as it’s time to head to new york. actually, this post should have been published yesterday but what with hurricane michael barreling his way through georgia and a 5:30 am wake up call to catch our flight somehow the blog post was sidelined. those of you who tune into friday’s post specifically for a glimpse of oscar and ollie, take heart, they’ll return next week along with a yummy recipe.
while we’re waiting, i’ll share my nyc packing list with you. as i always gear my outfits to the occasion, you might be curious as to what’s on the agenda this weekend? both work and play as i’ll attend a conference, two cocktail parties, saturday in manhattan, brunch and a broadway show. can you believe after all these years i still haven’t seen Wicked? guess i’ll finally get to check that off my to-do list.
this outfit will double for brunch and the theater. if you’ve followed the blog long enough you know, i love pink. and these pink corduroy pants are certainly pinkilicious.
when it’s five o’clock, it’s time to relax. my favorite kind of outfit is simple and chic. this one fits the bill thanks to a polka dot blouse with ruffled sleeves. add stripe shoes, and this ootn is darn near perfect.
this little number can easily take me to a number of places in nyc. it’s laid back but polished. my kind of sophisticated casual.
an all-day conference needs a little black dress with a touch of leo. okay, maybe a lot of leo. but this blazer will be on repeat all season long. it’s a smoking jacket, and blazer rolled into one. can you say FUN?!
saturday in manhattan requires a stroll through central park, maybe an exhibit and a pitstop to bloomies.
every vacay needs pajamas and a robe. this cute set came along with me to florida and is making a repeat appearance in new york.
everyone but everyone sings the praises of packing cubes. it was high time i gave them a whirl. i started with a small set that holds my lingerie, handbags, and accessories. so far i’m impressed.
it was time to invest in a tech charger roll up. it corrals all of the necessities in one place.
