alright so let’s rewind back to new york for a second. firstly, because who does not love that city and secondly, because i want to show you how i quickly took this black dress from day to night, perfect for a day with a full itinerary!
though my husband and i have each been to new york a few times and seen most of the major sights, we had never been together and had never at christmas time so we had a pretty long list of things we wanted to do and see together. we spent as little time in the hotel as possible even when our feet started getting pretty tired because we would feel guilty to waste any time there! we left pretty early each morning and returned once each evening to grab heavier jackets and then headed right back out to explore some more. that being said, we did not have time to primp or get ready again or make major outfit changes throughout the day.
on our last day, our morning and afternoon itinerary consisted mostly of walking through central park and the upper east side and then some more walking down fifth avenue to see store window displays and a quick walk through times square (where we made it on the jumbotron!). and then that night we were going to see the rockette’s christmas show!
i had to pick something to wear that would transition easily with a few tweaks from day to night. i went with my favorite black dress with my bean boots and a scarf to keep warm during the day along with a big bag for my camera and then took about ten minutes to switch it up by swapping the bean boots for some suede booties and a fur vest. add a swipe of red lipstick and i was ready to go!!!
