First up, I learned that when you leave your house for the day, you are gone for the day. You need to have everything on you that you could possibly need:
- Flat shoes
- A jacket (I actually need to buy several leathers because that's the NY uniform)
- Your metro card (Why would you ever leave the house without that)
- A book (for the metro)
- A phone charger
- A change of drawls in the summer time
- Baby wipes
And this is also why so many New Yorkers wear all black. If you have on all black you can quickly transition from church to a rap concert to a charity fundraiser to an outdoor concert to a block party to brunch to a museum to a rooftop barbecue.
I went to the Met in a tshirt and jeans and red converses and my girl shows up in a blue silk shirt, black pants and a studded leather. I'm like are we going to the museum or a concert? She's like "I didn't know what we were doing today so I got dressed."
Ok, I'm learning. I'm learning.
