packing guide: city break

Back to my packing guide series (seen here and here) and this time we’re off on a city break, and since I get to choose it has to be NYC. I heart it, so ridiculously much. I was lucky enough to live and work there for a year back in ‘04-’05… well, I worked in Manhattan and lived in Jersey City (known for its skyline views and the fact that Fiddy Cent was shot there, but we’ll paper over the cracks). Best experience of my life and I still miss that city like I miss a person. If you do head there for a break, then I’d advise you to load up on the glam; New Yorkers are about as polished as they get, from their perfect glossy locks down to their painted toes. Flat shoes in the daytime are essential since walking is the done thing, but super high heels are de rigueur for cocktails on roof terraces. Oh and don’t forget a huge shopper to fill with all the purchases you will be powerless to resist:

    Nice job-last time I visited NYC in April, it rained and was cold and I wasn’t prepared for that. I’ve been it’s really humid too, I think I like that better.
