Hey Loves! Welcome back! This is my final look from my “NYC Street Style” blog shoot while I was in New York in December for a weekend girls trip. I love digging into my closet and being able to come up with looks that are oldies but goodies. All of the items in this post I’ve had for over a year or so and can always count on them to be “in style.” Sometimes, having a blog can be a little hard on the wallet. There are so many new styles of clothes, shoes and accessories out there that I want to put my own personal spin on and share with my readers. However, its always great to have staple items in your closet you can rely on. This look is one of them! It was so perfect for walking the concrete jungle and taking in the city!
I promised to share with you a little of what we did on our girls trip. I feel like we ate the entire time while we were there lol. We ate at Sara Beth’s twice for brunch. The food was so good!! I definitely recommend it. Their breads and pastries along with homemade preserves were absolutely wonderful! We also visited Chelsea Market. We strolled the halls and stopped in almost every yummy vendor and shop to see all of the food goodness. Homemade pasta, fresh donuts, spice shops and the cutest seafood market, along with many more shops, were all amazing! We also had dinner at Buddakan. If you ever seen Sex and the City, the movie, you recall where Carrie had her rehearsal dinner at the restaurant with the huge chandeliers? Yes, that place! The food was outstanding! Their steamed pork buns are absolutely delicious!! Oh New York, you have my heart!
We stayed in TriBeCa at the cutest boutique hotel, Duane Street Hotel! It was the perfect location-a few minutes from SoHo and near lots of shops and restaurants. But, also tucked away on a quiet street! The staff were so nice and friendly AND they have fresh chocolate chip cookies each day for you in the lobby. With those kind of treats, you have my business! The next time I visit New York again, I would definitely go back.
We went to see The Lion King while we were there as well. It was my second time seeing it and my friends first. It was absolutely AMAZING! I always get so emotional in the very beginning of the show. If you have not seen it yet, you must check it out! It was worth every penny!
Our girls trip was so much fun and just what I needed. I work a full time job, a mommy to a toddler and a wife. Sometimes, I feel I am pulled in so many different directions. It can be so overwhelming and challenging! I thought I would be super emotional when we dropped Camille off to daycare the morning I was leaving. I teared up a bit, but reminded myself that this trip is for me and that I will be back soon to see her smile and hear her giggles. It was great to have a break from it all and let my hair down. I can’t wait to do it again!
Do you have any fun trips coming up? I’d love to hear about it!
