Happy weekend babes!
The countdown to Christmas is on, and I cannot wait. While NYC is much quieter this year, the city is still filled with Christmas cheer. The streets are lined with lights, decorations, and areas to purchase Christmas trees dot the sidewalks. The Rockefeller Christmas tree is shining bright, and the Saks Light Show is on full display. The shops at Bryant Park are cheery and bright, and the hot chocolate is just as wonderful as it was last year.
While the city is not packed with tourists, or the normal hustle and bustle that this season brings, you can still sense joy and wonderment in the air. I have been determined to keep the Christmas spirit alive, not only for myself, but for everyone around me as well. I love to go around the Upper West and Upper East Side and look at all the decorated homes. My favorite house is on the Upper East Side – on 67th and Madison. I walk by that house each day, and they are almost done! It already looks beautiful, so I cannot wait to see what they’ve done this year.
My sister and I went to Lotte Palace last Sunday. If you are a Gossip Girl fan you know what I am talking about. Located on 50th and Madison, Lotte Palace has a stunning Christmas tree that is placed at the entrance of the hotel each year. Usually the area is filled with tourists taking photos to send to loved ones, or document their trip to NYC, this year however we had very few people. So my sister and I were able to take lots of photos this year!
Double Breasted Coat – I am wearing a size small. Mine is from last year, but they have the exact same coat this year, just in a different color. It is one of the warmest coats in my closet. The wool blend, and full lining, will keep you warm even on the coldest of days. The perfect coat for work, a date or event, or dinner with friends. I’ve gotten a million compliments, and you can keep this coat for years to come.
The coat comes in sizes XXS-XXL as well as petite.
Petite Mock Neck Sweater – I am wearing a size medium. The small fit well, I just like to have my sweaters be a bit oversized so I can layer them when the temperature starts to drop. This sweater is perfect for the holiday season, and I love that I will be able to wear it to work!
This sweater comes in sizes XXS-XL and in regular and petite.
Mid-Rise Skinny Jeans – I am wearing a size 2 petite. I know I’ve said this before, but Old Navy has the cutest jeans! It is always so hard to find petite jeans, while I love Madwell and J.Crew jeans I do not always want to spend $100’s of dollars. With Old Navy, I can buy 2 for the price of 1. They wash great, and look perfect with a sweater or tee.
These jeans come in sizes 00-20 and in regular, tall, and petite.
Studded Croc Ankle Booties – I am wearing a size 7. I have been searching for the perfect black bootie and I finally found them. They are replacing a pair that I had for the past 3 years and they were so worn out in the soles that I have to part with them. These have become my favorite bootie though! They add the perfect height, and I love all of the detailing. Plus, they go with everything!
They come in sizes 5 – 8, as well as half sizes.
Pom Pom Beanie – How cute is this beanie and how cute is this Pom Pom topper!?!?! I am wearing the hat in Ivory with the Tinsel Topper. The best part about this hat is that the pom pom’s are interchangeable. They have a little snap on top, and you can change them each day for a new and festive look. I also purchased the faux fur topper in lavender. You will have people stopping you on the street, or in the store, asking where you got the hat. I have already been stopped.
Have a wonderful day!
