What I Wore In New York Last Weekend

As you may be aware, when I travel, I only go with a carry-on suitcase and a soft bag. People are always amazed and don’t know how I edit my clothes and accessories. But with the right bag, you can travel this way. I promise you that once you go carry on, you will never check a bag again. I am in love with this Briggs and Riley expandable carry-on suitcase. My soft carry-on bag is one I have had for many years and is by Louis Vuitton.

For the first day in the city, I wore my Elaine Kim leather pants paired with a lightweight cashmere sweater. The weather was fairly warm, so I went without a jacket. Then that night, we attended the theater and the temperatures dropped slightly so I added this fabulous white jacket. Already you can see that I didn’t have to change my entire outfit, but the addition of the white jacket did that for me.

For the evening add a white quilted jacket. This one is by Liviana Conti.
My Gucci crossbody bag fits easily into the bottom of my soft carry-on bag by Louis Vuitton.

For the opening of Funny Girl on Broadway, I wanted to wear something that was dressy casual. There was no big party after the show, and due to COVID, the usual opening night fervor was extremely tempered. Yet, I wanted to look chic but not too dressy. I chose this knit (and therefore packable) long skirt by Dion Less, worn with my Gucci tights and booties. I paired it with my tried and true peek-a-boo black knit sweater by Maje. After the show, we had dinner with friends, and there was a chill in the air. I packed my chic Barbara Bui black leather jacket which worked perfectly and kept me warm.

  • Hello Dear Lesley!
    We just finished a major remodel of our home in Palm Desert & I totally agree with you about how great it was to get rid of so many “things”. I, too, can now find everything! We also find ourselves choosing “quality over quantity” in our lives these past few years. Good lessons for us all.
    Again, please let me tell you how much I enjoy all your posts & reels- you seem to put into words ( eloquently!) how I feel so many times.
    Wishing you a wonderful Spring!!
    P.S. Funny Girl is my MOST favorite show- how exciting to be there for opening night!?

  • I am always so impressed at how you can pack so light!! And you always look so amazing.
    When we downsized the first time, I was good at purging, so maybe we need to move again? Lol!
