I can’t believe it is already a week since we left for NYC! We had such an amazing time and crammed so much into 2 1/2 days! We stayed in our usual haunt in SoHo – a hotel room that is titchy tiny with no room for swinging cats – but it is such a great location for all our needs!
On the Thursday evening we headed out for pizza – at the request of the kids of course – though I have to say it was pretty damn good pizza!
Jacket – Mango // Boots – Chloé // Jeans – Zara (old) // Top – AllSaints (50% off sale now here) // Scarf – Chic Dock (Use POPPY10 for Free shipping for orders over $50)
On Friday the weather was stunning and we headed uptown. Poppy and I shopped while the boys went battling Pokemons in Central Park!
Dress – H&M (old some sizes left here) // Jacket – Primark (old) // Shoes – Chloé // Bag – Proenza Schouler
We ate at some incredible places – Jack’s Wife Freda being my absolute favorite restaurant! Mom gets a cocktail, the kids are welcomed with a great kids menu, its great people watching and Dad gets a great coffee!
Even Dave got to go shopping on the Friday! It’s his 50th at the end of this month so as a treat we headed to some super cool stores – way too cool for me but he does like his Japanese designs!
I did, however, get to venture into & Other Stories to check out their sale – I came away with a sweater and a dress both with 50% off! Not bad hey! In fact for the first time ever on an NYC trip I think I spent the least! Dave, Poppy and Hugh all coming back with more than me! The kids stocked up at Uniqlo, H&M and Zara of course!
I’ve actually just made a couple of other purchase from & Other Stories – I adore their knitwear. Use code FRIENDS at checkout to get a 10% discount and free shipping in the US.
This dark green cardigan is gorgeous and snuggly and the wrap belt gives it a great shape. I actually bought it instead of this coat that I fell in love with. I cannot justify another coat, but I have this one in camel from last year and adore it. It now also comes in black too.
This sweater is lush – I just love the red instead of my usual blacks and greys!
Finally I treated myself to the MAC Liptensity lipsticks. Check these out – the pigments are so intense – I love them! Great moisture too but also great staying power. I bought Eros, Fireworks, Habanero and Postmodern.
Oh and if you are looking for a FABULOUS Acne Velocite jacket tribute check this out from H&M! It’s real suede and only $399 – given what I paid for my AllSaints shearling last year this is a BARGAIN! It’s sure to sell out in the blink of an eye!
