New York trip recap

Slept in because our plane had been delayed on Thursday and we got in pretty late at night. We had a quick (late) lunch at our hotel and headed to Lilly Pulitzer. I bought this pink polo and some stationery and cups in the Later Gator pattern.

Then we headed to afternoon tea at Alice's Tea Cup. I went there on my last trip and wanted to take my mom (she loved it of course!). After tea my sister finally arrived from DC (so glad she made it out!). We went to dinner at Toloache, which was just a quick walk from our hotel (in the freezing COLD) ;)

We got up bright and early for our day of shopping in SoHo. First stop: Uniqlo. I was sad they didn't have my favorite jeans anymore but I did get some new cords for under $10! We also checked out Kate's Paperie, A.P.C, and Calypso (to name a few).

Hearts painted on the sidewalk for Vday:


We ate lunch at Balthazar where I had delicious macaroni and cheese.
Dinner was at Cascina which was super close to the theater where we saw Hair after.

We picked up breakfast to go from Amy's Bread and sat in Central Park, across from the Frick Collection (we wanted to be there right when it opened!). The park looked so pretty with the snow!

I loved the Frick Collection-the perfect size. I had studied many of the pieces in my art history class so it was exciting to see them in person. Next we headed to Bendel's and Bergdorf Goodman. I love to just browse these huge stores!

My sister and mom went to the ballet (Swan Lake) but I didn't go (long story short I wasn't sure I was going on the trip so they only got 2 tickets). I took a LONG walk around Penn Station (I was picking up my sister's train ticket) and found the Filene's Basement that JGIWC recommended. I found a Vineyard Vines anchor skirt for $10!

For our Valentine's Day dinner we went to Nougatine at Jean Georges. I wish I had taken a photo of the pink marshmallows-they were so good! This is the only photo I took (the first part of our dessert):

(heart shaped of course)

Empire State Building lit up for Valentine's Day:

(makes me think of Sleepless in Seattle)
