What to Pack for a Winter Trip in New York City

The official start of Winter is less than a week away and during our time in New York City, I got so many questions about breaking down what to pack! Even though I absolutely love winter and snow, I do not like being cold. We all hear layering is key, but how do you properly do it? What fabrics should you get? How do you really stay warm? I believe in being realistic and not sacrificing for fashion. You can totally have both! Cozy up with a hot cup of coffee, tea or hot cocoa because I’m sharing what to pack for a winter trip in New York City!

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.

Diamond Shapes 101 :: Carats & Coffee with JamesAllen.com

I’m sure it’s no surprise Johnny and I love coffee. Nowadays when Johnny and I are together, we love setting up shop in a cafe sipping on coffee and getting work done. When we first met, we loved exploring coffee shops in Dallas. Then Austin when we went to the University of Texas. That love for coffee continues now when we travel, whether it’s to faraway places including Seoul or a few hours away such as Washington, D.C. I feel as if a cup of coffee is such a great bonding experience. It sets up the mood for whatever you’d like to talk about, good or bad. In this case, we’d like to talk to you about something good and sparkly: carats!

Floral Work Dress :: Jefferson Memorial

Happy Monday everyone! As many of you may know, I wear dresses 90 percent of the time at work. They are easy, low maintenance and I don’t have to worry about mixing and matching tops and bottoms. I usually wear solids, but this floral work dress from Of Mercer is a stunner. The reason I think this dress is particularly TV friendly is the print isn’t too small. It’s not overly distracting or can “move” like thin stripes. When it comes to work dresses, I like conservative silhouettes with unique details. Since I rarely really know what story I’ll be reporting on, I prefer to air on the safe side in case I’m assigned something very serious. While this floral print is fresh, it isn’t overly bright or cheery, so it’s perfect for the office.
