I got my very first blowout while playing in New York after my Joyce Tour was finished. It was amazing to say the least. DryBar products just smell divine and my hair still looked good the next day. Win!
There are several DryBar locations around Manhattan, but I went to the Flatiron location out of convenience. Here’s the scoop: they only do blowouts! No cuts, no color, just blowouts. It was really cool. I walked in for my appointment and they took me to my chair where there was a catalog of all the styles to choose from. I chose the Cosmo-Tai, which is basically a cross between ringlet curls and beachy waves. When it was finished, the curls seemed very tight, and I was a little worried because I felt like it looked like how I did my hair in high-school! But once I shook it out (and with a little help with the wind) it looked so effortlessly glamorous.
I’ve been looking through my pictures from New York, & found one common thread throughout…my trench coat. It has been unusually chilly in the City this month, and I definitely underestimated the chill factor while packing & planning my outfits. Luckily, I packed this gem! My trench coat literally saved me on my trip. I figured it deserved an appreciation post.
The beauty of a trench coat is that not only does it provide warmth, but it’s quite lightweight making it easy to just throw on. It’s the perfect coat to travel with because once the sun does finally decide to show up, it’s not a hassle to carry around. I also love the statement it makes. It completes any outfit, while giving the effect of confidence & being quite put together. Major quintessential New York woman vibes.
While I was in the City, I wore it unbuttoned most of the time (as you can see in the photos). It wore beautifully as a layering piece & looks amazing when caught in the wind.
