Tomorrow I leave for New York City on an extended-weekend trip. I’m not always a huge fan of cities, but New York City is an exceptionally awesome place to visit–tourists can find endless photo opportunities among the many attractions, enjoy museums or a Broadway show, and explore the thousands of hidden restaurants, jazz clubs, cafes, and bakeries. This weekend, I am particularly looking forward to seeing the cherry blossoms in full-bloom, and walking across the Brooklyn Bridge during sunset.
Although I’ve seen my fair share of women strutting their heels down Wall Street, anything other than a tennis shoe is simply unideal for me when trekking block to block. For a comfortable, yet feminine look, I chose to pair a structured, dotted dress with a pair of crisp, white sneakers. Wearing this, I feel casual and comfortable, yet still somehow pulled together. An umbrella, scarf and sunglasses are generally a good idea for the often unpredictable spring weather. A small, vintage camera is lightweight and easy to carry, and allows for lots of photography without looking like a complete tourist (although, if you’ve ever seen me rollin’ with my tripod, you know that this has clearly never been an issue for me).
