Here's what I wore for a day of sightseeing (Statue of Liberty and 9/11 Memorial) and wandering up to Central Park. Unfortunately, my mom and I didn't have time to stop and enjoy the sunshine as we had to get back and change for our Broadway show. (We saw The Lion King--SO. GOOD.) I was shocked by the sheer size of Central Park. I mean, it's HUGE! I don't think we got even halfway into it before we had to head to the subway. Still, I was mostly surprised by the amount of rocks--GIANT rocks--protruding from the ground. They looked like basalt rocks to me (volcanic), but I'm not going to say for sure just in case that's wrong, haha. It's been a while since I took a geology class!
I mentioned in my previous post that I focused my packing around black and made sure everything mixed and matched. This method extended to the footwear I brought. I ended up bringing three pairs of shoes with me (one was worn on the plane): my black ankle boots featured in the previous post, these New Balance sneakers, and black ballet flats for the Broadway show. Every pair I brought is comfortable enough for walking a lot, but I will admit that my feet were killing me by day four. We just walked so much that unless I wore something that allowed me to not feel my feet at all, they were aching. I'm so glad I packed the shoes that I did because I think my feet would have been in shambles had I brought sandals or less supportive shoes!
P.S. Thank you SO much to my mom for taking my outfit photos for me! :)
