Christmas Time at the New York Palace

Cape: Jack Wills Pants: Henry and Belle c/o Shoes: Coach c/o Bag: Brooks Brothers (similar)

Scarf: Brooks Brothers (similar)
in New York City is proof that magic does exist. I’ve been in the
Christmas mode for the past couple of weeks, but I really felt the
spirit of the season in the courtyard of the New York Palace Hotel.
The Christmas tree is so beautifully decorated, it would even exceed
the expectations of a seasoned holiday enthusiast such as Clark Griswold
I had the pleasure of staying at the hotel this
weekend and the lobby is just as festive. My room had a breath taking
view of St. Patrick’s Cathedral, and Rockefeller Center. I loved how all
of my favorite stores and sites from the city were so close. Kiel and I
had the best time window shopping and taking in all the festively
decorated storefronts. Living in RI I’m used to driving everywhere, but
there’s something charming about bundling up with a coffee in hand, and
wandering the city streets.

    Being from California, I definitely want to spend one Christmas in NYC. I know it's not exactly like the movies but a girl can still dream! Looking gorgeous and straight out of a j.crew catalogue per usual 🙂
