In light of Nadya's recent question, here is my recent NY trip capsule. Trip was for 3.5 days and 4 nights.
First, the bag. It is 21" by 11.5". Too big to carry on some flights but not others. (It was within guidelines when we bought it, but guidelines change.) In fact, I checked this bag, but if I were flying overseas I might have brought it on board.
Inside, I had:
#2: 3 dresses
#3 3 toppers
#4 2 shorts, 1 trouser, 2 skirts
#5 7 (!!!) tops
#6 5 pairs of shoes (one worn on plane) 2 bags. Also jewellery, not pictured.
#7 3 Ts
Not pictured: PJs, underwear (3 bras, about 8 bottoms), Toiletries bag (large) plus small makeup bag, large belt, and Trench coat. Also, cobalt bag, brought on plane, and small computer tote bag.
I wore everything except the 3 ts, one of the toppers, 1 dress, 2 of the tops, the sneakers, and the pants. I had brought some of these items not knowing exactly what the weather would be or whether we might go for a bike ride or something very casual. I actually bought the pink top on the trip.
My bag was full...but not bursting.
#8: for plane ride and lunch on first day.
BR shell, VC tube skirt, Reiker sandals, RL bag.
#9: For dinner first night and last night.
Cleo petites dress, SE sandals, Danier clutch. On the last night I wore my gold slingbacks for a change.
#10: For shopping, sightseeing wtih hubby. This is the one the streetstyle photographer snapped.
CM shorts, AT silk shell, Reiker sandals, RL bag.
#11/ 12: For theatre and dinner with hubs.
VC tube skirt, Loft peplum top, Reiker sandals, RL bag, Biba vintage kimono. It was raining hard off and on so there was also a Marimekko umbrella involved. And I needed the topper in the AC.
#13: For brunch and shopping with Mochi and Zap, and then dinner with Mr. Suz.
BR Armani neckline dress, Danier clutch, SE sandals. I actually wore the black sandals during the day, but took a break with these at night. (For me, a change is as good as a rest!)
#14: For hot day shopping/ lunch.
BR silk top (pink, but not coral OR see through, as you might guess from this photo, oy!); Mexx shorts, Reiker sandals, RL bag.
#15: Trip home.
BR silk top, VC tube skirt, Mexx ink cardi, Reiker sandals, RL bag.
Apologies for the long-windedness. I post mainly because quite a few people mentioned they really like trip capsules in Dana's thread. So...for those of you who love them, here it is.
