I can’t wait to share with you guys all the amazing things we are doing here, but until then, I have another exciting tidbit to share:
My NYC Vlog!
This video was taken during the last two days of my trip. My friend, Eri, and I stayed in the cutest little Airbnb (right next to the original Shake Shack I might add) and ventured all over the city. In this video, you’ll see bits of our blowouts at DryBar, shopping in SoHo (including a visit to the Glossier Showroom), music and dancing in Washington Square Park, our evening at the Metropolitan Opera House to see ABT perform, tea time at Alice’s Tea Cup, meandering through Central Park, and finally seeing the Brooklyn Bridge for the first time.
I hope you guys are enjoying these vlogs. Let me know in the comments below if you want to see more.
After you watch this video (and give it a thumbs up *wink*), shop some new finds in this week’s Lust List!
Two weeks ago, Eri and I relived my favorite Saturday morning routine in NYC. First, we traveled up to the Upper West Side (hello old stomping grounds!) from our Airbnb and headed straight for Alice’s Tea Cup (read more here). After filling up on tea and scones, we walked to the Central Park entrance on W. 72nd St. and walked to my very favorite spot: The Lake. It’s so gorgeous and surrounded by so much life including turtles, ducks, children, row boats, trees, and the best skyline (in my opinion). Then we continued to make our way towards the East Side visiting the Belvedere Castle as well as the Bethesda Fountain and Terrace. We watched street performers, heard some lovely live music, and even got a $5 henna to commemorate the trip. Upon exiting the park, we quickly found an H&M nearby to get our shopping fix for the day where I found a couple new summer go-to shirts that are seemingly nowhere to be found online or else I would link them for you guys. But I did almost buy this dress! (Should I get it?)
Anyways, we had the best time walking through this oasis smack dab in the middle of the busy city. It’s magic.
I know you guys might have already seen my outfit in a recent post, but I’ll post it here for you as well:
What are your favorite spots in Central Park?
What does your perfect Saturday in the City look like?

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.
