“Welcome to New York, welcome to New York, it’s been waiting for you…” Amen to that, Taylor Swift. Each time I come back home, it’s like the city’s been waiting for me all along. I’m very much looking forward to spending a few days back in my old stomping ground, doing what I do best. There’s nothing like New York City- from the air, to the energy, to the mystifying pull that just sucks you in. And it’s no wonder it’s the greatest city in the world. Because when you’re here, the sky’s the limit.
My beloved better half – my Italian Stallion – took these snapshots on the first day we arrived in the city for our Christmas holiday. Straight to the village we went, to one of our favorite spots, Buvette, where ironically he also told me that a move to Miami was in our near future. I cried into my beef tartare. This time around though, a more positive conversation was had and no beef tartare was harmed in the process.
We arrived to some very mild weather in the city so my usual puffer coat didn’t make the trip. Instead, this awesome leopard number by Guess kept me warm throughout my winter wonderland travels. I love combining leopard and stripes and adding something classic like an oxford top to turn up an outfit.
This yummy scarf from Nordstrom is the latest addition to my ‘bundle up’ collection. Usually I buy scarves off street vendors or I wear my LV leopard one on repeat. But leopard on leopard would have been too Mob Wives so I opted for this nude colored one, which by the way, takes cozy to another level. I just want to cuddle up with my scarf!
And because there’s no better purse for the NYC lifestyle than a crossbody, this Kate Spade leather bag is a comfortable and chic addition and fits perfectly over any coat without feeling bulky.
And there you have it, squeezers! My street style look is good for all shapes and sizes. I’m excited to wear a variation of this on my next adventure- minus the leopard coat because arctic temperatures call for mink- lots and lots of mink!
