Three Key Pieces to Suitcase Living


Four weeks ago, I packed up and moved to New York City.

Within that time frame, I’ve had just two suitcases to “survive” on, which has made for an interesting remix of ensembles. And, admittedly, more than one trip to Victoria’s Secret.

One thing I’ve noticed consistently from my four weeks of suitcase living is that, sometimes, the easiest way to get dressed is to simply pair your three favorite pieces together.

My three key pieces – and thereby recent recipe for an easy, wear-anywhere outfit – include this chunky sweater, my boyfriend jeans and a pair of statement pumps.

I guess that’s one benefit to the chilly temps that continue to blanket the East Coast – my layered look has been in heavy rotation since the moment I touched down in Manhattan. (Not pictured: Cute winter coat, of course.)
