I think they should change that saying into “as busy as a person visiting New York City”. Anyways, our weekend was extremely super busy. We paid for a three day New York City Pass and we started using our cards on Saturday – we visited MoMA and the Met and also stopped by Central Park and picked up tickets for the next morning to visit the Top of the Rock (it was a rainy day and they had said that the current visibility was zero.) On Sunday, after breakfast we went to the top of the Rockefeller building (luckily it was a beautiful sunny day), then we went to the Intrepid museum, then we went to Central Park and crossed it to the Natural History Museum, and later still we went to the Empire State Building. Phew, Sunday was the busiest day. Anyways, the photo above is from this little diner where we went to hide from the rain and also to experience a true American breakfast. This was my meal (though I gave M half my eggs and all of the sausages and the bacon) and I had a vanilla shake. I must say pancakes and maple syrup are THE BEST BREAKFAST EVER.
This was one of my favorite outfits from NYC – it included like a million layers as it was quite nippy out. But whatever, I’m a fan of layering. I also love these jeans I’m wearing, they are by DKNY, and are almost leather like. We went on another bus tour on Friday and saw more of the city.
Day three in NYC: so t was Thursday, the 9th, and we had planned a day of sightseeing. I sort of missed the mark on my outfit because it was super windy and I was way too cold to go sightseeing. So instead we had to go do some shopping. It was unintentional I swear :) As for the unfortunate outfit, I was wearing my H&M red dress with cut-outs, which I don’t mind as long as they are covered up; a Pull&Bear cardigan; thick black tights; my black pashmina, which I wore during the entire trip; my thrifted Dunlop leather bag and my new Michael Kors flats:
You know I love me some shoes so obviously that’s what I set my heart on to buy. Well, some shoes and about a million other things! We did do quite a bit of shopping during our NYC visit, but I didn’t buy as many shoes as I always do when I am in London. One of my favorite pairs (and the only pair of heels!) are these Seychelles “Ready for Anything” heart heels in burgundy suede. I absolutely adore the heart detail (they remind me of my favorite Vivienne Westwood for Melissa lady dragons) and I really like the color combo.
Sorry for the super long delay between posts, I got back from NYC on Tuesday night but it has been crazy since. Wednesday was spent half in bed (jet lag?) and half unpacking. Then I met up with my bestie for a double date and we went to Bruxx for dinner. I was a bit disappointed as they had changed the menu (and my favorite dandelion salad was on longer on it), but otherwise it was a very pleasant evening out.
