Reader Request: 5 Day Winter Packing List

Good morning!  This week I'm excited to help my friend Jan prepare for her upcoming 5-day vacation in New York.  She's not looking to bring her whole closet with her, but needs a variety of outfits.  It's especially tricky to pack a single bag with cold weather clothes since they take up so much room but if you bring a limited palette and versatile pieces, it's possible.

Here's what I would pack:

5 day winter vacation packing list

For plane travel: Black leggings and a sweater dress are soft and comfortable, and wearing the riding boots saves space in the suitcase

For sightseeing: Jeans or cords plus cozy sweaters and a great coat are easy and chic.  The same legging and sweater dress combination is also suitable, as is a black knit dress over the leggings with a heavier sweater on top.  A chambray shirt can be added to the mix with the cords and heavy cardigan or the dress and leggings combination.  Finally, for days full of walking, proper sneakers are a must.  Seriously... pack them. 

For dinners and shows: The skinny black cords become chic when paired with a fitted camel sweater or pink blouse.  The same tops will also look great with the leopard pencil skirt. If you're not comfortable with slim pants, a great boot cut style will look just as good.

What are your packing must-haves for winter trips?  Please share in the comments, along with your favorite NYC activities for Jan!
