A Winter Getaway in New York City :: Complete Travel Guide

New York City is one of my favorite destinations. I am in love with the energy, excitement and endless things to do in this city. For years, my trips to New York City are quite short, usually consisting of a day or two. Before leaving the East Coast for Dallas, Johnny and I decided to take a winter getaway in New York City. I feel like there will always more places for us to explore but for now here are some of our favorite places to visit and things to do. Our trip lasted four nights and five days. I hope this guide for a winter getaway in New York City helps you plan your itinerary for your next trip!

Exploring the Best Views in Central Park

Hello from New York City! It’s been a bucket list item for years for Johnny and I to go to New York City during the holidays together. I have been several times before but unfortunately, he couldn’t tag along. This time, we are in the NYC for a good few days and are beyond excited to explore and check off some places we’ve been dying to visit! I’m partnering with Sole Society in today’s post to share some warm and comfortable pieces I’m wearing on my trip. Of course, you can’t go on a trip to New York without visiting Central Park. However, it’s quite vast and I want to save you some time. So I’m sharing the best views in Central Park and what I’m wearing to take in those views while staying warm.

Sparkle :: Office Holiday Party Outfit Idea

What a whirlwind week it has been! I know with December creeping around the corner, there are holiday gatherings on almost everyone’s schedule. I know when I did a poll on Instagram, many of you wanted an office holiday party outfit idea. I’ll admit, this can be a tricky one, especially if it’s a party taking place at the office or place of work. Y’all know I’m a fan of versatile pieces and this Gal Meets Glam Nell dress and jacket is no exception. Julie Engel is such an inspiration and I’m more than happy to support her by purchasing something from her collection. This outfit makes me feel bold, confident and powerful. When I got this in the mail, I literally couldn’t wait to try it on!

How to Style A Mint Green Cardigan for Fall and Winter

Given that temperatures are dropping in the western hemisphere and winter is starting to creep up, I want to share how to style a mint green cardigan for fall and winter. Plus, Norfolk just had the Grand Illumination Parade, trust me it’s a really big and bright deal, so that means Christmas is right around the corner! Mint green is traditionally more of a spring and summer color. I remember back in 2012, pining for all things mint, whether it was a good blouse or pair of mint gingham pants (holy crap, what a throwback to an embarrassing, younger version of me!). Mint is still a great color to wear but I can understand the challenges of styling it for fall and winter.

The Chunky Oversized Sweater You Need

One thing I really love about fall and winter is being able to wear really cozy things. This cream chunky oversized sweater feels like I’m wearing a hug. I know I’ll be snuggling up in it all season long. Plus, it’s 35 percent off today with code “25HOURS”  so I highly recommend you snap this up! This beautiful piece is almost like a sweater cardigan jacket hybrid. I love the oversized fit but it isn’t too overwhelming for those who are petite. Since this chunky oversized sweater doesn’t come in petite sizing, making sure it’s not too big is important. I’m wearing size XXS and love the fit. Wearing this makes me feel like I’m wearing a hug. This ultra soft fuzzy cardigan jacket has a very nice weight to it, which adds to the luxurious feeling and warmth. Also, it zips completely shut, which will block out the cold.
