Usually when I pack for a trip I throw a bunch of random items into my suitcase last minute and hope that some of the pieces will workout somehow. I am the worst packer. For my New York trip I tried to be a little more prepared and actually planned outfits by day and event, then threw in a couple extra "maybe" items just in case. I'd been dying to break out my leather skirt in NYC (found it at a clothes swap then had it altered a bit), but the weather was not cooperating. I ended up switching around a few outfits, but finally decided that I should just go for the skirt on Friday. It probably wasn't the best choice because Friday was hot and humid and my skirt was sticking to me like glue. Mikhaila had the right idea. A light, flowing skirt paired with a tank top and moccasins.
