sweater dress/tunic, F21. jacket, vintage. boots, dolce vita.
without further adieu, here is the first of our NYC updates. the fiance and i actually arrived in NYC a day earlier than the rest of the crew to spend some time with his cousin and her bf. like issa, i was also very negligent about taking pictures during our trip, but here are a couple from our hotel on our first night in the city.
i find dressing for plane travel a little perplexing at times, especially when travelling from one climate to another, as was the case with this houston to new york flight. but this outfit comfortably took me from the four-hour flight, to the cross-city trek to the hotel where we were put up for the night after a "mixup" with the apartment we rented for our stay, to dinner and drinks in the meatpacking district, to a late night search for toothpaste and an infamous gray's papaya hotdog.
i've never really understood "fashion rules", e.g., no white after labor day, matching your shoes, belt and purse...and especially the one about not mixing neutrals. this is one "rule" i find myself breaking often, as black w/ brown and grey w/ brown happen to be some of my favorite color combinations.
the rest of the nyc updates are gradually coming. we got the first batch of pics from dru, which includes what i think is a pretty spectacular pic of issa that i hope she posts. ;)
EDIT** thanks for dona perfecta for nominating issa's outfit from the last post for her look of the week! go vote :)
