NYC Weekend Recap

nyc weekend trip recap

Those of you who follow my Instagram will know that we traveled to NYC this past weekend for an event at Harman Kardon Audio! It was an amazing whirlwind of a weekend, and I will be publishing more detailed posts, but for now I can't wait to share with you a preview of our trip!

Our first night was at the Renaissance Hotel 57. The bathroom was so cool - see the door and the vessel sink below.

The Harman Kardon event was so exciting. We learned a little more about our own style and preferences, from a blind wine tasting, to mood boards, to listening to some of the best speakers on the market!

Um, can we talk about this speaker that's so cute it looks like a clutch? Yeah, that's because they partnered with Coach! I still can't stop dreaming about this one! Stay tuned for the full post on the event.

We went to Tanner Smiths for dinner after the Harman event. LOVE this place! The ambiance is so cute, and the service is great. I asked them to replace the pineapples on my tacos with an egg, and they didn't bat an eye (N definitely did though)!

I broke in these adorable Taku booties by Naot, and they were so comfortable all weekend - even after walking 5+ miles per day!

I met with Nora Gardner in the Garment District. I can't wait to share this brand with you all - it's professional work wear for women that's actually chic, cute and locally made!

Guys, I'm obsessed with the Minan Wong line, sold at Flying Solo in Nolita. Sound familiar? You may remember Minan Wong from our summer collaboration! This Audrey-Hepburn inspired brand is also locally made, it doesn't get any better than that!

This burgundy moto jacket from Lulu's is insanely soft, and the black Express distressed jeans were just edgy enough to fit in with the chic NYC style. This city has the best street art by the way!

The second night we stayed in the Millennium Broadway Hotel. This marble counter in the bathroom was the only good thing about our room.

Obligatory Times Square shot! It got pretty crazy with all the tourists here, we bolted right away to cooler, local nieghborhoods.

Brunch at Bea in Hell's Kitchen was AMAZING! You can order a bunch of small plates which are honestly scrumptious, while listening to live jazz.

Schmackary's bakery is the cutest, and they even have gluten free options. Wait until you see the cookie mug we got!

How cute are these golden decorations at Bryant Park? I also got a really cute ring here from a local vendor.

Ok, how cute is our 3rd hotel? Officially obsessed with the Hotel Belleclaire. Look at the cute hallway below:

I got to meet up with my roommate from UCLA! We haden't seen each other in 6.5 years and it was so good to catch up!
