The Best of the Big Apple

Hello from NYC! Today is my start to Fashion Week. I’m SO grateful to be part of the chaos.

This also marks the first time my talented team is along for the ride. Which means, I’ll be able to share so much more with you! The shows, the outfits, the inspiration [follow along on Instagram + Snapchat]! I’ll also be doing a travel diary for C Magazine and a bridal-inspired piece for Harper’s Bazaar. 

As an intro into NYC, here are the best spots to dine, wander + play in the Big Apple. This lyst is meant for you — whether you’re a local or a someday-tourist. Enjoy…


ABC Kitchen | This charming restaurant is dreamy + delicious, and a perfect place to snap a photo!

Serendipity | Ever tried frozen hot cocoa?! That’s what this place is known for. Trust me, it’s worth it!

Eataly | Welcome to an Italian wonderland. It’s a market and restaurant and coffee place all in one!


Central Park | Have a picnic in the park! Plus, you’ll spot a zoo, gardens +  street performers.

Metropolitan Museum of Art | Try out the Museum Hack version. Brief, interactive + fun!

Chelsea Market | The perfect mix of boutique shops + trendy food. Also, great people watching.


The Happiest Hour | A cute cocktail bar that’s not your typical NYC hangout spot.

Escape the Room | An interactive experience to try with your family. You’re [playfully] locked in a room, and only have an hour to figure out how to escape, through conquering mazes + games.

Broadway Show | When in New York… [see a show]! My favorite is still The Lion King.
