If you’ve been following along with me on Stories, you know that I’ve been in New York this week. My family and I had a wedding to attend so I decided to add a few days on to the trip. I decided to go up ahead of time to visit with some brands and friends in the city. I just got back late Monday night and playing tons of catch up. Originally, we were supposed to come home Tuesday, but between some work things and also a potential third Nor’easter, we decided to head home a day early. It’s always hit or miss in March when you head up North. You could easily get some great early spring weather, but you also run the possibility of a massive snowstorm, like we did.

We arrived in NYC on Tuesday last week and headed straight to our hotel, Yotel NYC. This is a favorite hotel that I used to stay at back in my sales rep days. Yotel is in a great location and although the rooms are small they’re conveniently laid out and minimal. It’s in Hell’s Kitchen where my close friend Vanessa used to live making it a great place to stay for work. Her and I would always grab dinner in the neighborhood so I feel super comfortable in this area. Around the corner is Gotham West Market, several great food vendors and communal sitting. Also, Room Service is just a few blocks away for great Thai food.  And for breakfast, Westway Diner is a classic diner.

On Wednesday, the storm was rolling and we were just so not prepared. Although I did learn that these Eastland boots that I bought for Vermont are actually waterproof and survived slushy snow and ankle deep puddles. They were a lifesaver and super comfortable. But since it’s March and in the south the cherry blossoms were blooming, I wanted all the spring things. Not possible, so I grabbed all the pastel colored winter pieces I own like this blush coat and my pastel blue Madewell sweater and topped it all with a cream cashmere scarf. If you’re going to do spring in a snowstorm, this is how you do it! We headed to Flatiron to snap photos before grabbing lunch at Cava followed by a very basic matcha at Cha Cha Matcha. To be honest, not worth it guys.

PS I did have a meeting at the Marc Fisher showroom and got a sneak peek at Fall 2018. Guys, the winter flat lace up boots are everything. I was tempted to snag a few to get me through the week but I was not allowed…. Basically, I’m ready to skip over summer and get straight back to more boots. Okay okay, maybe not just yet.

Looking for some ways to wear scarves?  I did the pretzel most of the time in NYC. Then did the one shoulder drape with my black one for the wedding that weekend.
