As I mentioned yesterday, I am going to NYC tomorrow morning to visit my best friend. I am so excited to be having a post-grad "Spring Break" trip to see her! I have never been to New York before but have always wanted to go - therefore my psyched'ness level is through the roof.
An issue that has been on my mind, however, is what to pack. One of the reasons I am worried about packing is because it is cooold up there and I don't have many warm clothes anymore. I got rid of most of them when my mom and stepdad moved from my childhood home in Ohio to Phoenix, because I obviously don't need a parka in Arizona or Florida ;P The other reason I am nervous is because I want to dress amazingly while I am up there - it is New York after all! I need to be comfortable yet cute & cozy for all the miles of walking we will be doing to see the sights. I will have to scrounge through my closet today and get creative with my summery selection of Florida clothes!
Xhilaration cream lace sweatshirt: Target $12.58 (It's even cheaper online- just $6.28!)
Cognac wedge boots (also seen here and here): Target $34.99 (I got them on sale in the store for $17.48.)
[I obviously really like these boots since I seem wear them with everything now.]
This was quite the Target-filled outfit, wasn't it?!

What do you think is appropriate to wear for a February trip to New York? Do you take the stylish route with lots of chic clothes or stick to practical pieces for comfort? Do you have any NYC advice for me? I'd love to hear any of it. I am totally intimidated by my suitcase, but it must get done tonight - I have to leave for the airport at 3:30 AM!
Side note: I won't be blogging while I am on vacation [Sorry!] but I will back in action next week when I return :)
