This time next week I will be in New York City, at my company’s headquarters. I’m speaking alongside three other women as part of a business review of my channel. I’m nervous about the presentation, of course, which is pretty high-level and being given in a room full of intimidating people. But we’ve rehearsed it over and over, and made countless edits to our PowerPoint slides. With the work aspect mostly handled, I’m free to worry about what really matters, what I should be wearing in New York!
San Diego and New York style are about as opposite as it gets. We wear jeans (or dressy jeans, if the occasion dictates) and flip flops all year long. We wear bright colors and patterns and hippie jewelry. If the photos below and my previous trips are any indication, when in New York, you are best off wearing black and white, accented by killer heels and designer shades. And there is also the snow factor. I asked our New York assistant what shoes to pack for snow and she recommended wearing tennis shoes to the office and then changing into heels. That gave me a chuckle, though I do think I need to hunt down some cute, comfortable water-resistant boots this weekend.
Here are the photos I’ve bookmarked for style inspiration. How chic are these ladies?!
You can never go wrong with a black blazer.
I want this coat!!
I’ll take this coat, too. Leather pants won’t work in the office, but I wouldn’t mind wearing them out to a cool NYC bar!
This whole look, with one of the afore-mentioned coats, is perfect.
I love how she dresses up a more casual look with those amazing heels!
Alexa, always adorable.
I think I need this entire outfit. Especially that leather skirt! (Too much for Casual Friday?!)
Wish me luck with my work clothing hunt…I’m on a tiny budget with no time to shop. I’m planning to hit up Zara and hope for the best!
