New York Fall Outfits

I finally visited New York City! My short trip was just a taste of this exciting city and I am now itching to go back and explore more.  The weather was strange – one day it felt like summer, the next was windy and I was sure winter was coming. Below are the outfits I wore for my October visit and I still managed to wear floral in the fall!

Floral Track Suit

Love Fire Floral Track Suit

Track suits are usually not my thing, but I found this gem at Nordstorm Rack and I bought it immediately. I have never  felt so comfortable and stylish in an outfit – it was perfect for the plane ride. I paired it with a white tank top and I actually wore basic white tennis shoes – I never wear running shoes! For accessories I wore coral tassel earrings I made (available on Etsy) which bring out the flower pattern. I was shocked at how warm it was in the middle of October; I had to carry my fall coat.

Tracksuit: Love Fire (from Nordstrom Rack)
Purse: Ted Baker

Candytopia New York Outfit

For our evening at Candytopia (an interactive candy and art experience) walking around the city and dinner I wore a bright pink pant jumpsuit. Given Candytopia, was colour-overload, I needed to match the decor. I rolled up the pant legs to show off the studded boots to give the outfit some edge. For jewelry I wore neon earrings and bracelets I made. I never get sick of wearing this jumpsuit, see how I wore it while in Jamaica.

Pantsuit: Banana Repulic
Boots: Sam Edelman

Floral Blazer and Leggings

Day two was the Metropolitan Museum of Art (MET) so I knew there would be lots of walking again. The navy floral blazer I tend to wear to art galleries a lot, see how I wore it to the AGO in Toronto. I paired in with liquid black leggings, tennis shoes, and a basic cream top.

Times Square at night

For the evening I headed off to see Times Square and have a drink. To dress the outfit up with minimal effort I changed to the matching suit pants and the same black boots.

Suit: H&M
Blouse: Ann Taylor
Leggings: America Apparel

Orange Pants and Leather Jacket

I regretted this outfit as soon as I walked our the door, but I didn’t have enough time to run up to get my fall coat. The wind going to the Statue of Liberty was fierce and painful. The days before were unusually warm so I was expecting the same thing. This was a long day of waiting in lines and climbing steps (Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, walking around Wall Street) and I was cold for most of it.

Pants: J.Crew
Leather jacket: Danier Leather
Scarf: The Bay
Embroidered top

I was exhausted from all my walking on the trip and was thankful I wore running shoes for the majority of the time. Exploring more of New York is on my list – hopefully in the summer.

Where do you suggest I visit in the city?
