I am a habitual overpacker. Is that even a word? I’m pretty sure the entire female species can have that added to Webster’s dictionary. If there’s room for words like ‘Bootylicious’ and ‘yolo,’ I think there’s room for overpacker; n. someone who packs too much.
Anyway! I digress. As I said previously, we got to spend the weekend in the city to celebrate our 4th wedding anniversary. I have always been the type of person who packs just a bit too much, leaving absolutely no room in my suitcase or duffle bag for things to be purchased on vacation. My mantra was always, “hey, a girls gotta have options.” I made it my mission for this trip to pack as little as possible, and I achieved my goal by taking one look from day to night with just the change of a few key pieces. Here we’ll have a gander at my day look.
The day we arrived into the city our hotel room wasn’t ready yet, despite our request for early checkin, so we decided to wander around Central Park for a bit. I love to explore the city regardless of the reason for my visit. No matter how many times I pop into New York (which has been many times throughout my life since I live so close) there is always something new to see. With that in mind, I decided to opt for sneakers for my day look. While a pair of flats may have been all the more fashionable, I needed to be comfortable. It was hot and there was a ton of sight seeing to be done, I wanted to enjoy myself!
My hair looked okay in the morning, but after about 5 minutes of walking around outdoors it turned into a frizzy mess. It’s September… why isn’t this humidity going away?! Take a hint! Oh well, I actually had time to kill before our dinner reservation so I made a pit stop at the DryBar to tame the wild beast, which you will see when I debut the night time look! Thankfully sneaks and skirts are not scoffed at anymore, which is fabulous news for me since they’re kind of my go-to when I feel like being comfortable but still chic. I took this look from easy and relaxed to fun and edgy by switching out my shoes, necklace, and bag, and adding some bold makeup. Can’t wait for you guys to see the look!
