New York instantly grew on me, I’m still mesmerized by it’s beauty and I’m craving some gyro and amazing street food..Maybe going back in the Spring doesn’t sound like such a bad idea…Well we spent our third day doing some sightseeing; across Brooklyn Bridge, Chinatown, and we went to meet up with a friend for dinner at a restaurant called “Heart of India” and their pistachio ice-cream is absolutely delicious! Check out some of my pictures from the trip below!
Packing was lot easier since I mainly focused on the tops I was wearing instead of a head-to-toe outfit. I loved the Burberry-inspired print on this scarf and I like how it doubles up as a blank and cardigan. To stay extra warm, I wore a turtleneck as my main top underneath the cardigan. I have been addicted to wearing poncho-inspired items this season to the point where I wear them every day to class since they’re so comfortable and easy to throw on over a plain shirt. I wanted to keep the color palette simple so I stuck with khaki and cream shades and wore brown accessories like my sunglasses and purse.
Sorry if I haven’t been blogging about my New York trip everyone! There’s so many details that I want to write about but I’ve also been so busy. New York is such a beautiful, iconic city. The lifestyle there is so colorful, creative, and constantly evolving everyday. We spent the second day in NY visiting many of the iconic sites throughout the city such as Battery Park, Madison Square Garden, Washington Square Park, The Statue of Liberty, etc so I’m sharing some of my pictures with you! The day went by so fast since we mainly spent time walking everywhere around town.
I wanted to have one, elegant and classy look for New York so I was inspired by vintage Old Hollywood looks. I decided to dress simple by wearing all black: a black long sleeve, skinny jeans, and shoes. I highly recommend wearing leggings underneath jeans so you have an extra layer of warmth if you have to walk a lot in the cold weather. I opted for a cape coat with leopard fur accents. I love the the texture of the fur and it kept me warm and cozy throughout the day without weighing me down. I loved how it was a poncho/cape coat rather than a regular coat because it was loose and easy to move my arms around. I decided to loosely curl my hair (which ended up getting messed up by the wind..) and pair my look with red, crimson lipstick and my favorite diamond earrings. I also liked the idea of wearing leather gloves so I brought these dark chocolate brown elbow-length gloves that paired perfectly with fur coat. I love how this look was so quick and easy to get ready and I felt so glamorous.
