My Packing List: What to Wear to NYC

What to pack for a trip to NYC. | M Loves M @marmar

If you follow along on Instagram, you might know I’m in NYC for the weekend! I have been so looking forward to this trip because I haven’t been since 2015! That seems like so long ago but it was right before I got pregnant with Augustine, and then where the heck did the last two years go?! I am so excited to be in the city for a work trip but also to see my best friend Lizzie. I thought I’d share what I brought with me so you know what to wear to NYC in case you have any upcoming trips planned. To be honest, I didn’t do the best job recycling outfits like I usually would, but it is NYC after all! I felt like I needed the options!

My Packing List: What to Wear to NYC

For the plane flight, I decided to wear this cozy black sweater with leggings and these brown ankle booties. I always get cold on flights so I felt like wearing a sweater would be a good idea. Plus my flight was super early so being cozy and comfy was key!

I have a full day of meetings on Friday so I opted for this white sweater with rust skirt combo. You might remember I wore it here! I’m going to dress it up a bit for NYC though with this brown coat {here’s a great affordable option}. I love these shades together. They just feel so fall in New York, don’t you think?

My best friend is meeting me Friday night so I’ll probably change into this blue floral dress {still one of my favorites right now!} with a black leather jacket and a pair of black bow flats.

Saturday I’m planning on wearing this green floral dress with the brown ankle booties. I’m not sure if I’ll change before dinner or not, but if so I’m going to wear this black lace cami with the black leggings I wore on Thursday. And I’ll throw the leather jacket on top.

Sunday I’m thinking about wearing this brown turtleneck with the rust skirt. I’ll probably change into my Thursday outfit before my flight and then I’ll be back to California. This trip is going to be way too short but I can’t wait to fit in as much as possible with my best friend! I hope you follow along!

And by the way, can you believe I only packed 2 pairs of shoes? I tried to really narrow down the two I would wear the most over the weekend, so brown ankle booties and black flats it was! I think they’ll serve me well though. I almost thought about adding in sneakers but I didn’t think I’d wear them enough to make it worth the space. Plus, I might need some room in my suitcase for goodies for Augustine. Dying to find him something NYC-themed. If you have any ideas, let me know!

I hope you all have a great weekend! Make sure to follow along on Instagram to see all the Big Apple adventures. I’ll also be sharing a blog post next week with the full itinerary of what we did and where we ate. We’re planning on fitting A LOT into this weekend but I’m so ready!

Speaking of the weekend, a little shopping is always fun! Shopbop is having a huge sale that lasts until Saturday. You can take 20% off orders under $500 or 25% off orders of $500 or more using code STOCKUP18. I’ve heard this brand makes great maternity jeans so I’m planning on grabbing a pair while they are on sale this weekend!
