What I Packed for New York

Sneak peek into my suitcase from my latest travels!

Well, I haven’t let being in graduate school stop me from traveling. In November, I spent a week in New York City.

Here is what I packed!

The weather was going to be in the mid 40 degrees Fahrenheit with rain only predicted one day. Living in Oregon for the four months leading up to this trip, I have really began to acclimate to the cold weather. I first started by picking out my outerwear. I packed my North Face rain jacket, my Forever 21 military jacket, and my Ann Taylor Loft Funnel Neck coat.

To layer underneath, I brought along three sweaters. The outer two are from Ann Taylor Loft and the red and white stripped is from Madewell.

And for even more warmth, I brought along a few tops. Moving from left to right, the black t-shirt is from Ro & De at Nordstrom Rack  and the grey and black long sleeves are both from Forever 21 .

I am not really a dress or skirt girl, so I just opted to bring three pairs of jeans for the week. They were all purchased from Nordstrom Rack and are by the brands Joe’s Jeans and Paige Denim.

For shoes, I brought along two pairs that I can walk in. On the left are Tory Burch leather boots and my Nike running shoes.

I also brought along a shirt my mom got for me in Austin, Texas and a pair of yoga pants from Victoria’s Secret PINK.

To round out the winter wear, I brought along my Marc Jacob’s scarf, North Face gloves, and Stance socks.

All together I had this much clothing. Not too bad for a week in a colder weather climate!

Aside from clothing, I packed some basics: toothbrush (this one from Phillips Sonicare is amazing), deodorant, face wash, face lotion, and Q-Tips.

My makeup is typically pretty simple (read more here), but I keep things extra streamline during my travels. I brought along a Jouer tinted moisturizer, Nars blush and bronzer duo, Becca eyeshadow pallet, Covergirl mascara, Becca highlighter (decanted) and Anastasia Beverly Hills eyebrow pencil.

I also brought along my trust tech gadget: the myCharge Razor portable charger. This is a must for all of my travels, but especially in the city that never sleeps.

Everything fit nicely into my carry on suitcase, which I later swapped into my boyfriend’s hard shell carry on suitcase.

With that, I am ready to take on a week in New York City!

I hope you find this post helpful when trying to pack for your next trip to New York City. I firmly believe that if you can do it in a carry on you should because it saves you some money with the checking costs and guarantees your luggage will not get lost!

  1. First thing I thought while reading was “I finally found someone who shops at Loft as much as I do!” I love this post. Like you, I also try to travel with only a carry on, the only time I packed a bag to check was when I studied abroad for college. Otherwise, carry on only is the way to go for me!
