Kendallina's NYC Packing Preview

My dear friend Anna Dearmon @ Do Yall Have Sweet Tea really likes when people (well.. stylish people) post their outfits for others to gain inspiration from. My last trip to Europe she seemed pretty upset that I didn't post my layered European winter travel masterpieces. To make it up to her I snapped pics of the outfits I picked out and packed for my current 5-day sojourn to New York City

Packing proved a bit tricky because the weather is going to be kind of spastic this week ranging from high 60s to high 30s. So a little creativity was in order. Keep in mind I tried to re-use pieces as often as I could to avoid packing bulk. Enjoy!

Oh before we fashionista it out. Here is a little Jetsetter Packing Tip. When you have lots of clothes you wanna keep non-wrinkled ... what do you do? You get THIS:


It comes with a nifty folding instruction board that helps reduce wrinkles:

Voila! Holds 12-15 pieces with very limited wrinkles! Also very easy to pack in your bag and takes up less room than if you packed normally. A fashionable frequent travelers dream! If you want one I included a link at the bottom of this post.

  1. I love those eagle creek folders. You likely have your whole trip planned out, but if you want some ideas about the city (where to eat, what to see etc) check out my blog. I hope you have a great time!
