My husband bought the girls the NES Classic Edition when it came out last year. He did the “wait in line early the day is was released” thing, to make sure he was able to get one. The girls decided that they like Super Mario 3 the best from the games and it is super painful to watch them play. It tests my patience so much to watch them when all I want to do is grab the controller and show them how it’s done, because when I was young I used to kick ass at that game ;) They were playing a tournament tonight and I had to avert my eyes so they didn’t drive me crazy.

Today/tonight I have part two – outfit options to the What to pack for 5 Days in New York City packing list. As one of the world’s top vacation destinations it is a popular request for me. The requests vary anywhere from 3 days to a week, so I averaged it out and made a list for 5 days. This wouldn’t be the wardrobe that you bring in the middle of summer but you could easily follow the same format with more summery pieces.

If you don’t liked heeled shoes/boots (admittedly most of us do not, but I like a kitten heel) then go for more of a chelsea boots style or whatever is in your comfort zone. Sneakers are always a great choice for a comfortable walking shoe since New York vacations usually entail a lot of walking. Go for a pair in a fun colour like pink, red, or blue, and it will add some colour and variation to your mix and match wardrobe.

I’m wrapping up the television show Life on Mars tonight (US version) then I am starting Life of Mars the UK version because I heard that it is even better. I finished Pan-Am last week. Seriously, why did they cancel that?  So I think I have a theme going for shows that take place in past decades. I’m going to have to dig for more.

What is your favourite thing to watch right now?

About two and a half years ago I made my first New York City packing list, and to this day it is one of my most popular posts to date still getting a ton of daily visits. Since New York is one  of the top vacation destinations in the world and I get frequent requests for it I figured it was time to update it.

New York is one of the fashion capitals of the world, but it is also one of those anything goes cities. You can pretty much get away with wearing whatever the hell you want there and no one will look twice, (well, they may but it won’t shock them).

For 5 days you don’t really need that much honestly:

  • 3 shirts
  • 3 sweaters
  • 1 pair of jeans
  • 1 pair of dark jeans (or another style of pants like these)
  • A dress that can be dressed up or down,
  • Jacket
  • Accessories like a couple of scarves for accessories (make at least one a print/colourful and one neutral), a hat, and sunnies.
  • 1-2 purses
  • 2 pairs of shoes. A casual, comfortable pair, and a dressier style (maybe a dressy flat, or flat boot). I like and can walk absolutely fine in a kitten heel though, and I am totally a non heel person. Plus, the heel will look good with the dress.

That should be more than enough, so these pieces plus bras, socks, underwear, and pyjamas will easily fit into a weekender bag because you will be wearing some of the above pieces for travel. As for weekender bags I have this one in grey that I like, and fits a lot of stuff. There are some more styles I like below.

The outfit options for this list will be in the next post.

Do you have a favourite weekender bag?
