i packed some great outfits for my very first business trip to new york city, but as you can see what i wore was not the same great outfits i took the time to put together before i left. after one day, i realized that i was not going to be able to wear heels and all of my outfits i planned on wearing needed heels. my boots and one pair of heels were the only shoes i brought. i was very proud of myself for packing so little, i fit it all in one carry-on. my boss was not checking bags, so there was no way i was. this was the first time i have ever traveled with only two pairs of shoes. i had packed two full (and awesome) outfits i put together the night before and then a few extra pieces just in case. and luckily, i had enough to pull these looks together.
i was in new york for the enk trade shows. this was my first time at the shows doing buying for the boutique and figured i would want to look as good as possible. after one day, i was certain there was no glamour involved in walking around for 8 hours carrying bags of paper that got heavier as the day went on. comfort and warmth was key for walking around the shows and through the city. my trip was great and the pieces we selected for spring are even better!
