Traveling Casual is so damn important. When I found out my boyfriend surprised me with tickets to NYC, I started to dread the thought of myself running around the streets in heels. OUCH. So, I decided to plan some casual “day” outfits that would keep me comfortable to enjoy endless amounts of bagels & exploring. Let’s take a look at how I rocked some casual street style on the first day we arrived!
From Airplane to the Streets of NYC
Knowing we had a 7am flight to NYC was all I needed to decide I wanted traveling casual to be a must. Mateo & I realized that once we got off that flight at 11am, we didn’t want to nap before exploring for fear of missing the whole day. So, I knew it was the perfect opportunity to rock a plaid & some stellar studded jeans.
I recently purchased these jeans for only $17 at Nordstrom Rack! They’re so damn comfortable & all I had to do was tuck in on of my boyfriend tee’s from my store plus a tied plaid top.
For extra comfort, I threw on my Superga high tops that I wore every single day we explored. I scored these babies on clearance for $15 at Marshalls! They were the perfect stylish shoe yet 10x comfier than running around in heels! (I’ve linked some similar ones from TJ-MAXX, HERE! )
Added a choker for some effortless accessorizing, a satchel, & a bright lip! Ahhhh, traveling casual never looked & felt so damn good.
