I think that, when it comes to clothes, I tend to have a theme when I travel. It makes it easier for me to narrow down my wardrobe choices! During one beach trip, I packed only black and/or white bikinis; on another, all floral bikinis.
During my NY trip, I loaded up on stripes! Stripes (especially black and white ones) seem to be everywhere this season. I like classic pieces and am not particularly trendy, but I don't think stripes will ever go out of style anyway. Stuff that made it into my luggage:
A black and white striped shirt from Amanda's Place, which I wore to work.
In the conference room, with a view of Hell's Kitchen
Paired it with black leggings from Greenhills, a long gray cardi from Candy, and black biker boots from Kate Moss by Topshop (got them on sale...from, like, P7,000--about $155--to P700--about $15!). I layered skinny jeans over the leggings and changed into a black rock n' roll jacket when I went to see Wicked that night--it was pretty cold, and we just walked from our apartment, so thicker clothes were a must.
Super cute, colorful socks which I got ages ago from Sock Shop in London.
A dress from Collezione (notice the Philippine map on one side!). Wore it to Central Park on a warm, sunny day.
It was relatively warm but had to wear the jacket to free up my hands--it took some effort to climb dem boulders! The things we do for photo ops.
Toe socks (no photo, sorry!) from...I don't even remember where I got those from, but my husband cracks up whenever he sees me wearing 'em.
Another shirt from Amanda's Place.
With my butterball Filipino-Italian-Puerto Rican nephew!
I put it together with a tan jacket, dark jeans, and these adorable Parisian flats from SM...
