Our Christmastime adventures in NYC last weekend were totally beyond what I could have imagined, and any grinchy-ness I was feeling beforehand has been totally blasted away by an explosion of twinkle lights and tinsel and tiny gingerbread houses. Those Rockettes sure know how to kick the bah-humbug right out of you. :)
This layered up look is what I wore for a day of exploring with my in-laws and I needed something that could go seamlessly from schlepping shopping bags up and down 5th Avenue to a double date with G’s parents at Radio City and then to a late dinner in the West Village (loved trying this new-to-me spot).
Wanna know my quick-change secret? I folded up the skirt (last seen here!) and tights into a teeny tiny dust bag and tucked them into a corner of that ginormous bag so that I could pop into the restroom at our hotel and work my magic. The jeans and the leather shell got left behind at our room, and after a swipe of my favorite festive red lipstick, we were on our way!
