How to Look Like a Non-Touristy-Tourist

Happy Monday!  I'm headed to New York City later this week, so I've got a few related posts planned over the next few days.

First up: what to wear when you're traveling so that you look polished, but that will let you be out and about all day sightseeing, shopping, museum-hopping, eating, and generally wandering (one of my favorite things to do when I'm visiting a new place is to just walk through the different neighborhoods and get a feel for the city).  

My main guidelines are comfortable flat shoes, lots of thin layers so you can adjust for indoor, outdoor, day, and evening temperatures, and a bag that's big enough to hold everything you need, but not so giant that it's a pain to lug around.  This usually translates to lots of skinny jeans, blazers and jackets, cross-body bags (no hands needed!), shirtdresses, and flat sandals.  A couple of fine examples:

What's your traveling style?  Do you have any particular shoes, bags, or staples that you never leave home without?
