New York, New York

In the last few weeks I have actual had more than one request for outfit ideas for people going to NYC. Although I may not be the most fashionable I thought I would share what I would wear and as you know I love to be comfortable.

For days out walking the streets of New York and doing a bit of shopping my number one key piece would be a pair of leggings. Of course skinny jeans would work too, but nothing beats a comfortable pair of leggings. I would first pair it with a plaid long top, boots, and a purse that could cross over my body if I needed an extra hand. The second day a long top, pretty scarf, flats, and a cocktail ring would make me rather happy. I am sure the rest of my days would also be some variation of these two outfits. I know, I don't stray far from what I love.


A fun night out would be in order although I am sure I would be just as happy ordering room service and watching a movie in. A dress that could be worn alone or with an army jacket would be the way I would go. A belt to cinch off the waist would be a must with this one. A small clutch to hold my phone and a few cards would be all that I would need. Shoes with an edge and a good heel always make me feel just a bit more confidant. To top it all off a delicate necklace would add a softness to the whole ensemble that I would just adore.

* Also I want to say a huge thank you for all the support you all gave me yesterday with my new endeavor. I am so excited and so happy you are too! Have a great weekend.

How dare you say you are not the most fashionable...you always look amazing and have a wonderful sense of style my friend.
Fantastic pics, and what I wouldn't give to hit up NYC again for a bit, it seems like so long ago and such a blur, almost like a dream.
Enjoy your weekend!!! xo

mydesignchic said...

Devon said...

Just got back from NYC this week. Noted that oxfords are beyond huge right now. Worn with skinny jeans or leggings. Seems to be the replacement for ballet flats (but, really, can anything replace the classic ballet flat?)

Julie Holloway said...

love these looks....now if I can just swing a trip to the big apple!

Heather said...

Great job. Yes, leggings are everywhere here...and of course boots! Love what you put together

Lila said...

Flats and leggings are perfect for NYC! You could literally walk 10 miles a day wandering the shops and your feet would hurt without comfy shoes! Good choices!

I agree about the leggings... so comfy! I haven't worn jeans in months!!

Victoria said...

I have the Gap flats in black and red - love them. So great that I can fold them into their little pouch and pop them in my bag when I'm out and about.

jacjewelry said...

Great picks! I am all about skinny jeans and flats (that's what I usually wear around the city on weekends). Just picked up a fabulous pair of new flats at JCrew (on sale!) - fantastic.

Damaris said...

Thanks for the help Paula!! Now to go shopping in Birmingham before all of the shopping I'll be doing in NYC!!! And I actually just bought some heels with a similar look as the one's you posted!! So I'm already on the right track! Love you!
