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!
Funny story: I lived in the City for two years & have visited it frequently before & after the fact, & just recently I found out what SoHo means! It wasn’t until my parents were there with me to watch me perform, that my dad told me what it means. For any of you who also don’t know what it means, SoHo means “South of Houston St.” You’re welcome. 😉
So while we were meandering through SoHo, we came across this gorgeous courtyard & restaurant in the NoMo SoHo Hotel. It seemed like the perfect place for shooting my #OOTD. We were on a shopping mission or else we would have stayed to eat and grab a drink here, but now it’s in the books that I have to come back here next time I’m in the City. I love that their aesthetic vision is “an intersection of nostalgia & modern” (hints the name NoMo). The juxtaposition between the lit greenery arches & the graffiti brick wall is so pleasing & picturesque.
Kate, of Kate La Vie, has really encouraged me through her latest posts (such as this one) to incorporate more red into my wardrobe. It’s hard to tell in the photos because my shirt looks pink, but in reality, the stripes are red and white. This shirt was quite a step out for me, but I really love how it looks on. I even bought one more red and white top while I was in the City that I absolutely adore, but you’ll have to wait a bit to see that one (Paris…).
Do you wear red often? If so, how do you incorporate it into your wardrobe?

Thank you for reading and supporting Felix & Flora! xx
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.
