How This New Yorker Escapes The City In Style

Packing is just half the fun

The best part about living in New York City is escaping it. There's nothing like adventuring outside the five boroughs to clear your head and remind yourself why living here is so magical. Kyrzayda Rodriguez has made a career out of documenting her style and getaways. As a fashion and travel writer, Rodriguez knows how to turn even the shortest getaway into a sartorial dream. No matter the destination, her outfits are always on-point and always carry her signature cool. It was a no-brainer tapping her to share her tips and tricks for packing now that the weather finally permits a much-deserved escape.

"Versatility is key when you want to get creative with your closet," she says. "A two-piece look is a smart style option for a weekend getaway because you can wear them together or separately with other items." Like, say, a colorful shoe or statement jacket? Absolutely. Rodriguez's go-to getaway staple is a classic white dress. "It's everything for those warmer days," she says. That, or a blazer-and-denim pairing "for when you are just ready to take off straight from work." Amen to all that.

Watch Rodriguez bring three of her favorite getaway outfits from Bloomingdale's to life in our exclusive video. And if you're feelin' the itch to drop everything and escape for a weekend, you can shop all of Rodriguez's looks at Bloomingdale's via the links below.
