I can't say it enough how amazing our trip to NYC was a few days ago. I absolutely love the city and it's even better at Christmas time! Yes, it was cold, but it was so worth every chill. Our trip was super short due to me needing to get back for work, but we packed our days full of fun and explored as much as we could.
First stop was suppose to be brunch, but we got caught up in the beauty of the New York Public Library. The architecture is so old and just so neat because of the age of the building.
I'll post in more detail how to get this side braid look on my Beauty page!
After finally enjoy a yummy lunch... we were too late for brunch as it turned out, we visited Bryant Park for a little ice skating action. This was one of the main things I wanted to do on this visit and it was magical. Bryant Park had this cute little Winter Village set up which made it feel like you were in this Winter Wonderland. It was just PERFECT!
Larry had actually never been before, so that was super fun too. He did awesome though for his first time! No one fell.. we came close a couple times though haha.
The next big thing we were headed to was Radio City Music Hall to see my Rox sisters in the Christmas Spectacular! Of course on the way we stopped by the Rockefeller Christmas Tree to take the beauty of this majestic tree in. I think our tree is the baby tree of the Rock's lol.
On to the show we go...
It was so good to see the girls work there magic up on that great stage! Absolutely gorgeous and so inspiring. Below are a few of the girls I had been on tour with. You girls were flawless and looked stunning up there kicking your faces!
(Laura Jakowenko, Me, Rachel Borgman, & Corey Whalen)
Then we just played & had a mini photo shoot in front of Radio City while freezing because why not!
For my look...
Unfortunately I don't really have any photos to show off my sweater because it was way too cold to take my coat off. In the picture above with the girls though you can see my cozy Free People sweater. It's super cute and really warm for sure. I love that the neck is stretchy enough for me wear it slightly off shoulder. The sweater was a sale find last year at this time, but below I'm show casing another style that would be super cute to rock this winter season!
My most favorite part of this out fit are my booties by Vince Camuto! These were one of my steals from Black Friday, but good news they are still available & ON SALE!!! The wine color is absolutely gorgeous and is something different from the norm.
Keeping me warm is this classic Searle coat (similar color pattern linked). I am so happy that I purchased this coat, it's been one of my best buys ever... I've had this coat since 2010!!! It was something I got while on tour with the Rockettes, and has completed it's purpose of keeping me warm all these years. I don't think I'll ever get rid of it, even with the tattered inside hah it makes it unique & "vintage" right?! I've linked several other styles below that or similar in certain ways... this Chloe coat is my fave out of the options, but it's for a millionaire's budget.
Until next time NYC!
