Big Apple, Little Luggage

Big Apple, Little Luggage

By the time you read this, I should be in New York for a long weekend. Lucky me! 

My flying visit requires a versatile wardrobe to cover travel, sightseeing, dining out, business and celebration. My solution? A show stopping dress at the core of my capsule carry-on.

From Parisian designer lifestyle brand, Mapoesie, our new Abstract dress fits the brief perfectly. It even has pockets!

This flattering, floaty Maxi dress works well because the bright, bold design disguises travel creases and offers effortless style, even when you have just stepped off the plane.

The dress can be belted to switch up the look, or dressed down with a chunky sweater for a cooler evening in the Upper West Side.

Team with our new lightweight low-heeled sandal clogs - with ankle strap for comfortable travelling and easy street pounding.

Add artisan beaded jewellery in complementary tones (these will also zhuzh up a plain tee and jeans). 

Simple hooped earrings add a finishing touch and take up virtually no packing space.

A woven Wayuu bag, worn crossbody, carries valuables and leaves you hands-free to take photos. 

I’d also pack our new colourful Supersonic top for the instant impact of its statement sleeves and off-the-shoulder option; my comfortable @motherdenim flares; a couple of plain T-shirts; and a hand knit for cooler evenings. 

Finally, a large Zuzu shopper makes the perfect capacious carry on.
