Earlier this month I took a solo trip to Philadelphia, PA and then to New York City, NY. It was early March so it was a bit cold. Since I traveled to Europe last November I knew pretty easily what I needed to bring on the trip.
Clothes I recommend for a 4-6 day winter vacation are:
- 1 chunky sweater
- 3 long sleeve shirts
- 1 short sleeve t-shirt (for layering or sleeping)
- 2 pajama sets
- 2 pairs of jeans (black/blue/etc)
- 1 pair of sweatpants
- 6 pairs of bras/underwear/socks
- 1 down or wool coat
- 1 pair weather resistant sneakers
- 1 pair weather resistant dress boots
Two of my best friends from college live in Philly so I got to have a local guide of the city. I bought a 1968 pressing of a Jimi Hendrix record, ate pierogies, saw the liberty bell, stayed in a historic adorable 19th century home, and participated in a rad group tarot card reading. BTW- I eat meat very rarely so no Philly cheese steaks for moí.
I took the train a few days later to Penn Station in New York City. I love the hustle and bustle of the city. Yellow cabs, fashionable residents, and pop up stores filling the streets.
I also stayed with a BFF of mine from college who lives nearby in Jersey City. The first night we stayed at the Freehand Hotel which is the cutest hotel I have ever stayed at! I am so grateful for the tour of the city I got as well. *Above photo cred! Thanks girl!*
Washington Park, vintage clothes, the Natural History Museum, waiting in line for some legit pasta/wine, eating great food each day, and living out as much as possible my Mrs. Maisel life!
Now that I am adult-ing with full force I don’t mind giving myself these vacations. I deserve it! Next up though, tropical paradise….lol!
