Y’all. It’s been 3 straight weekends of traveling and this girl’s exhausted. But let’s be honest, traveling is like my favorite thing to do so it’s all worth it in the end, right?! And the trip is not complete until I forget something. I’m THE worst packer and I was doing great until yesterday when I managed to leave my brand new wool hat at the American Airlines Admiral Lounge. Whyyy?!? Anyways, I’ll have an NYC recap post for you guys soon but today I’m sharing what I wore during our full day of exploring the city!
Since cooler weather hasn’t really made its way to Charlotte, I was excited to finally break out my faux leather jacket from YMI Jeans (even though it was 80 degrees in the city yesterday.. crazy!!). It also made me feel very “New York”… especially with the tennis shoes! Believe it or not, these are my first pair of non-running sneakers and it was a long time coming. I’ve been looking for some comfy shoes that were still fashionable and these gold New Balances were just the ticket. They come in lots of different colors but I think you can only get the gold ones at J.Crew. My feet were definitely happiest on this day!
As for my graphic tee, I picked up the day before when we popped into Express. It was on major sale and I wanted to wear it on our Sunday funday in the city so… why not?!
Vera Bradley quilted Marlo satchel, c/o // New Balance sneakers
DL1961 ‘Emma’ jeans (my favorite!)
When packing for the city, a cute and functional bag is key so I brought along this quilted satchel from none other than Vera Bradley… would you have ever guessed?! They have totally rebranded with a fun new look as well as some great new styles. You can still find the bright patterns that we all know and love but they have added some more grown up pieces as well- the leather bags are amazing!! I love the deep red color of this one and the adjustable strap can convert it to a shoulder bag or crossbody. Prepare to see it on repeat this fall and winter!
One of these days I’ll be back to my regular blog schedule so please bear with me!! I hope everyone is having a great October and getting to do ALL of the fall things. I still can’t believe it’s halfway over, say it isn’t so!!
