Spending the holidays in NYC is truly special…I really can’t think of anywhere else in the world that is as beautiful as this place during this time. Of course, during my commute to work I’m not saying these things (I’m most likely cursing at tourists who stop in the middle of the sidewalk to take a selfie), but sometimes it really amazes me how perfect New York City is during Thanksgiving and Christmas time.
The atmosphere truly lights up (literally and figuratively) during the holidays in NYC and it’s so fun to watch everything unfold. Since my office is right by Bryant Park, watching The Village come to life is really cool – it’s been so mild in the city that people have been ice skating in short sleeves! I love seeing the city put people into the Christmas spirit.
And let’s talk about the holiday windows: Macy’s, Bergdorf Goodman, Lord & Taylor, and Barneys New York are among the crowd favorites when spending the Holidays in NYC. Between the amazing clothes and the creative aspect, there really is nothing like the holiday windows in New York City.
Other Christmas Favorites:
1. Seeing the Rockefeller tree.
2. Central Park ice skating.
3. Spiked hot chocolate at 230 Fifth.
4. Going to The Christmas Spectacular.
5. Window shopping on 5th Ave.
And now for the clothes. First, let’s talk about this headband. I mentioned Headbands of Hope in Thursday’s post, but I wanted to talk about it again today. Basically, for every headband you purchase, another headband is given to a little girl battling cancer. For as cute as these headbands are, I wish I could buy every one of them so little girl can feel just as pretty (if not prettier) than I do in them! (**PLEASE SEE BELOW FOR INFORMATION ABOUT GIVING DAY – WHICH IS TODAY!**)
Although it’s a shame that children’s cancer is a thing, Headbands of Hope is doing an amazing job at making little girls all over smile and help them get through it one day at a time…with a little bit of sparkle. This holiday season, I encourage everyone to purchase a headband (they make great gifts, too!) and do something great for someone else.
Next, we can talk about my go-to holiday look.A midi skirt is always appropriate and you can dress them up or down depending on the event you have. If you wanted to dress this Windsor skirt down a little more, pair it with a festive button down shirt! I love wearing simple tops/tanks with my midi skirts – plus the headband is the perfect amount of bling.
