Last Weekend In NYC

As I’ve gotten older, I love going on weekend getaways! Last weekend, I took a trip with my love to New York City! As usual, we saw plenty of sites, ate a lot of incredible food, and shopped (just a little)!

I had a list of things I was dying to do and see! Our first day, we arrived to extremely wet and windy weather. We pretty much just grabbed lunch and dinner and called it a day! If ever you are in the mood for some yummy deep dish pizza, Emmett’s is the place to go! Bill found it because he loves deep dish! The restaurant was small, cozy, and clearly a spot a lot of locals go to! It was a great way to begin the weekend!

On Saturday, the sun was shining, and I couldn’t have been happier! We walked over to Central Park where we had brunch at Tavern on the Green! The food was SO good, not to mention the restaurant was quaint and lovely. After, we enjoyed the Central Park Zoo, which is probably by far my favorite zoo! We continued to walk around the city some more, and of course, whenever I am there, I always need to stop in Topshop. But the highlight was definitely going to Magnolia Bakery by Rockefeller Center. I had been following them forever on Instagram and knew this was a stop that needed to happen. We tried their banana pudding, and it was life changing.

That night, we went to dinner with my uncle and walked around Times Square. This was definitely one of my favorite NYC trips! When we left, I immediately felt the need to go back. And trust me, I am already planning the next weekend there!

For those asking about my pink hat that I wore during the trip, it is from H&M. I’d been looking for that style for a while, but was not a fan of how most of them looked on me. Once I found this one, I knew it was meant to be. You can find a similar one here!

Gardens and Roses

Beautiful fall days make me reminisce of times when I was a child and playing in the garden. The flowers and petals, bushes and foliage make me feel right at home in the city. Today’s fall look was perfect for a day spent with the calmness of sweet grass and large oaks.

I am wearing a gray, knit sweater with a high/low hem. I paired it with a pair of olive, coated denim and added a leopard scarf. I wore a nice pair of chestnut riding boots (my favorite) and finished the look with a wide brim black hat, and my Tory Burch tote!

This look is so easy and casual! The weather was perfectly crisp, so luckily I didn’t need a heavy coat! Also, coated denim is probably my favorite for this fall! They are very comfy jeans, but have a little extra flare, almost like leather.

Make a day to spend outside with beautiful trees or flowers! Soon it’ll be winter, and all there will be is the crisp, white snow.

Snowy Days…Yet Again

Sorry for the delay everyone, but hope you enjoyed the beauty review I filmed! Today, I decided to venture into Boston for a little lunch and shopping. Come to find out, it started to snow, yet again! I was tired of wearing the same outerwear and decided to put on something a tad bit different today! I wanted to be extra stylish, but still warm!

After digging in my closet, I found my navy blue wool trench coat. It was super warm, and I never felt uncomfortable! I paired this with a simple black and white checkered scarf and occasionally wore my leopard gloves! I topped off the look with my wide brim “hippy” hat and a pair of chestnut riding boots!

I was hesitant to wear this hat, but also pleasantly surprised because it was perfect for the snow. It covered my head and hair the entire time and didn’t have to deal with the mess of soggy hair! Another recommendation for boots is wearing a pair of tall Hunter boots or any rain boots in general. I didn’t have a problem with walking in the snow with my riding boots, but sometimes the water can seep through and make your feet wet! But it is whatever is easiest and versatile for you!

So, here is another look for cute outerwear attire! It can be achieved with any coat and any adorable hat! Try it! You will be surprised at how easy it is to change up your winter wear.
