new york outfit inspiration

my husband and i are going to nyc next month! i couldn't possibly be more excited. we're gonna do some sight-seeing, but most importantly see a broadway show! i had a fun (and pretty easy) time picking out a fancy outfit for "phantom of the opera", but packing all of the other outfits fills me with a frightening number of questions. for example, is it true that all new yorkers wear black all the time? i don't really wear a lot of black, so will i look silly wearing colored clothing? where do i find shoes that make a statement but will still hold up to trekking all over the city? will my sight-seeing outfits be too casual if daniel and i stop somewhere nice to eat for supper? will the weather in nyc be a lot different than in nashville? these are all of the important questions in life.

i've collected tons of pictures from various websites that might make it easier. street style pics have been the most inspirational.

for the plane ride:

white henley + dark jeans + flat riding boots + pretty scarf

this is perfect for a plane ride, because you wanna wear your bulkiest shoes while traveling so you don't have to pack them. the white shirt is clean but still comfy, and the scarf keeps you warm and keeps your outfit from being boring. 

crochet shirt + cargo shorts + tan sandals + cognac bag

looove this outfit! i would probably swap the heels for a flat version, but i love how it looks casual without looking schlumpy. i'm thinking it needs some hippie beaded earrings....

long tunic + shorts + gladiator sandals + hat + fringed bag

i'm not really into leopard print (or any animal print, for that matter), but i have other printed tunics that would work great. i like this outfit because i have all of these elements, i just have never worn them together!

long-sleeved T + khaki paper bag shorts

i've always loved the contrast of a long-sleeved shirt with shorts. i also really like mixing different colored neutrals these days (gray and khaki). although you can't see the shoes in this photo, i'm thinking either brown oxfords or gladiator sandals. it's also kind of plain, so i would layer on some eclectic rings and bangles.

plain T + maxi skirt + hat

this is my favorite! she's got the right idea with the random bangles and rings. plus it looks so comfy but still city-cool!
