Finally!!  Some photos from my recent trip to New York.  This year was a different kind of Christmas in the city for me. Usually it’s a quick flight from Mississippi and we are bundled up, drinking hot cocoa and feeling the cool breeze on my face while trying to keep up with my mittens.

This year there was a heat wave in the city following the earlier blizzard and it was actually warmer in New York than it was in California…go figure!  I had prepared for cold weather, so I was left sweating in my sweater, but it was still wonderful to be back in one of my favorite cities with my parents, admiring the beautiful Christmas decorations and really feeling the excitement of the holidays.

Below are some of the photos I snapped, Part II to come tomorrow!

We always love seeing the Christmas window displays.  Our personal favorites are always Bergdorf Goodman, Saks, Tiffany’s, Lord & Taylor and Henri Bendel.

It’s Buddy the Elf!!  I had to take this photo for Christian – he loves some Elf.

My cute parents –

 Going to St. Patrick’s Cathedral and lighting a candle for my nieces and nephew –

 As you may have seen here, we saw Kinky Boots and Pippin.  Both were great shows, but Kinky Boots was amazing.  I would love to see it again!!  Pippin had some seriously jaw-dropping acrobatics and athleticism.  Talk about killer bodies in that show.

Lunch at L’Ecole, one of our favorite spots for lunch downtown.

Our favorite Bryant Park booth – Studio Manhattan Vintage.  Every year they have a new chandelier, this spoon one was amazing!

A lot of you left comments that you were also traveling to New York for the holidays.  To those of you – what were some of your favorite things that you did?  I would love to hear!  Thanks so much for reading and don’t forget to enter the Stella & Dot giveaway!  XO –

  1. It looks like you had a blast!! There is nothing quite like NYC at any time of the year, but particularly during Christmas!! I love Bryant Park and all the people watching it offers!

  2. Too bad it was a zillion below 0* when I was there. In spite of, NYE in NYC was CRAZY AMAZING!!!! Our hotel was in the midst of it all and we got to see all the craziness!!! Every time I’ve gone to NYC, it’s been cold. Can’t wait to go back this summer!!!

  3. It’s so beautiful! I haven’t been to NY since 2006, I’m dying to go back! I would love to go during the holiday’s sometimes, it looks magical! These pictures have me missing Christmas-time already! Also…where did you find that camera strap? I love it!

    1. You have to go back!! Christmas is my favorite time in New York…although I’ve never been during the fall and would LOVE to see all those park trees in the fall – swoon! XO –

  4. Oh my goodness, so magical I want to go right now. Thank you for sharing all of your pictures – I am living vicariously through you for the moment!

  5. Would love to have another serving of the scallops from L’Ecole, they were delectable. Lord and Taylor won the window contest as far as I’m concerned. Kinky Boots was the BEST! Loved it. Didn’t love the 70 degree non Christmas weather but what menopausal woman would? :0 !!!

  6. Looks like you had a wonderful trip! I love NY, especially around Christmas. Those windows are all so amazing. Can’t wait for part 2!


  7. i just love this photo diary and am so glad you had such a good time!

    my husband and i went i think the same week as you and though the weather was a little bit of a bummer just because we had kind of wanted a quintessential christmas in new york feeling with cold and some snow, it really was great in that it allowed us to just walk all over! we went to see the rockettes christmas show which was fabulous but honestly my favorite part was just walking all over the city. there is just something about the energy of that place and the feeling that there is something going on around every corner that you just can’t get anywhere else!
