I'm assembling a fashion plan for my trip to New York, and so far it's centered around three components:
It's going to be hot, so I think casual cotton skirts will keep me comfortable and put-together enough for museums and stuff - more so than jeans would. Obviously black and neutrals are more acceptable for the city, but brights are cute and easy to find right now.
Comfort shoes aren't in my usual repertoire, but if I'm spending the money on them, I'd like something cute that I'd want to wear at other times. I also want something with multiple straps so my feet stay in place. I know from experience that flip-flop styling, no matter how comfortable, gives me blisters and sore ankles if I have to walk any sort of distance.
I'm crossing my fingers for a good find at TJ Maxx or Ross.
I don't want to be hitching at my bag constantly and worrying about getting mugged. A crossbody bag will make me feel more secure. This Lucky bag is gorgeous but costs over $150, so my plan B was to make a more casual canvas bag along the lines of the Target one. Then I realized it would be much easier to find something secondhand at Plato's Closet and be done with it - I mean, I'm already attempting to sew at least one skirt. So yesterday I picked up this little number for $13:
It's very easy to carry, and in my opinion, faux snake goes well with everything. :)
