I can not believe that in about 36hrs I will be in New York city!! I have wanted to go back since the last time I was there about 20 years ago....seriously! But I haven't just wanted to go any time of the year - I have specifically wanted to go during the Christmas season :) Well, this year is our 16th wedding anniversary (December 14th) and my husband (and high school sweetheart :) is taking me to New York to celebrate!! We arrive Friday morning around 10am and don't leave until Sunday around 6pm to fly back home. We have tickets to the Rockettes Christmas Spectacular at Radio City Music hall for Friday, dinner reservations for Friday and Saturday and brunch reservation on Sunday and I plan to shop til we drop most of Friday (after we check into our hotel) and ALL day Saturday. I have a map of all the areas of shopping I want to hit. I seriously don't really know how we are going to fit it all in, but I am sure going to have fun trying! LOL :)
In preparation, I have been packing (and shopping) to make sure I have everything I need and want to wear while in the Big Apple. I ran into Macy's today - partially to get my husband's Christmas gift and partially to get a couple of things for my trip - and while I was in there I took a few pics of today's outfit. Mainly to capture the incredible Laundry by Shelli Segal trench that I recently got (but also to try on a few pairs of perfect I.N.C. skinnies I found while browsing for the hubs...however did I find myself in that area of the store! :)
Please excuse the incredibly dirty mirrors in the dressing room and the lack of good lighting. Hopefully you can still see most of the details in the coat. It is actually color blocked- dark grey inside the pleats and underside of the collar. It is absolutely the best fitting and most unique and gorgeous wool trench I have ever owned - in LOVE!

Trying to show you the back detail here although it's about impossible with a dirty mirror and bad lighting :(
You'll just have to trust me that it is gorg!!!!
Rest of the outfit:
Rust colored merino wool tunic sweater by Susan Bristol via TJ Maxx (current)
Vince Camuto Norway boot in "mushroom" via Marshall's (they were on clearance and I LOVE them - what a find!) (just purchased this week)
Grey "jeggings" by HUE via DSW (last season)
Steve Madden bag via TJ Maxx (current)
So do you have a favorite place to go when in New York? Favorite place to eat? Cafe? How about best shopping district?
We are staying in mid-town at the Hilton New York so we are pretty much in the center of it all (right in the middle of the theater and garmet districts - that was planned! ;).
What we can't walk to we can easily take a cab and/or subway too. So throw out anything....I am so willing to take suggestions!
