NYC: The High Line and showing off a military fall trend

Camo’d up

On my New York Trip I did my usual round by the Meatpacking district and went up to The High Line park. This is an above ground park built over old metro tracks on the lower west side of Manhattan. The project it is still under development but some areas are done. I visited for the first time this park right when it open a few years ago. It is a relaxing view and walk after a long day of shopping and walking around the city.

For my relaxed shopping day I opted for a little black dress from Uniqlo J+ by Jil Sander and Chuck Taylor All Stars which in my opinion are the best city sneakers ever. The weather was nice but I still carried a jacket. I wanted to try out Fall’s military trend and opted for a Camo jacket borrowed from David’s closet.

Note to self and readers: Always a good idea to check your local thrift store (in my case borrowed closet) to try out trends. Because in reality I wouldn’t wear this jacket everyday.

New York Experiences: Grand Central Station

I like looking up to see the magnificent windows of Grand Central

So the greatest thing of travelling with my sister and her boyfriend is that I get two photographers following me around at my beckoned call. At least that is what my alter celebrity ego believes.

When I am travelling I like being comfortable. A pair of jeans and a simple t-shirt are always part of my packing bag list. You can dress them up with a jacket or dress down with some flats. Having to live out of a suitcase for a few days sometimes is a little hard and you have to improvise. Reason why I carry a lot of accessories just in case of any occasion.

For this outfit I took a tie on this trip (totally on purpose) so I could use it instead of a necklace.

Also, If you haven’t commented on my Fall Looks from Saks you should. You could get a some free denims (here).

What I Wore: New York City

Out in the Big Apple

This past week I went to New York city. I really didn’t get a chance to do fashion week as I was there doing some other social duties (aka visiting friends and family). So not all the time I get to do fashion things but that’s Ok. I did squeeze in some shopping time so don’t fret.

While I was prepping my bags I decided to go with hints of all the inspiration garments and such I have been posting lately. So I borrowed from the boys and wore a tie with a white jacket and green jeans, took a camo men’s jacket over a simple black sheath dress and strut around with a classic cropped trench coat while exploring the big apple.

Planning my outfits prior to traveling  has helped me so much so I don’t need to figure out what to wear and I get more time outside of my hotel room.

I was definitely ready in a New York minute.
