and this California girl did not do well with the chilly weather!
Everyday of my trip a complete stranger told me that I looked cold + my cab driver even told me that he didn’t want to take me to the Chelsea piers and insisted that I go to the ‘Russian Saunas’ or back to California!
It took me nearly the entire trip to learn that 1 coat was OK, but 2 coats were better (my other coat was on a nearby bench) and that tights under jeans were OK and that tights + leggings under jeans are even better!
I snagged these shoes on my first night while wondering aimlessly (and VERY coldly) down 5th Avenue + ended up wearing them for the rest of the trip! They are the perfect bootie! The hidden wedge gives them just the right amount of height + the cheetah print is so unique!
However…I learned the hard way that slipping on ice is easy + to pray that the sidewalks had been salted!
Despite the cold weather (and some of my slip ups) I had an amazing time in New York and fulfilled my childhood dream of standing outside in the Today Show crowd and even saw my
creepy man crush Matt Lauer!
I can’t wait until my next trip to NYC and to apply all of my new layering tricks into my styling!
