It's Christmas Time in the City ๐ŸŽถ

Manhattan at there anything better? With Christmas right around the corner, I wanted to share these pictures from a trip uptown to Rockefeller Center. Despite the crowds of tourists, it was amazing to see the tree and the holiday spirit that is always so prevalent in NYC! Thanks Emma and Kate for coming with and taking some awesome photos! 

Oh! And a trip to Ralph's was in order (obviously).

Holiday Gift Guide Under $50

If you're anything like me, you always save gift giving until the last minute (oops) - which means you don't have a ton to spend...but your friends deserve perfect gifts! Here is an easy gift guide with adorable gifts under $50 for that trendy girl in your life!

Black Leather & Prada

It's hard to believe that I am writing this post in 40 degree weather, when we shot for this blog just yesterday in 60 degrees - but I guess that's autumn in New York for ya. My best friend and I took advantage of the temporarily nice weather to shoot down in West Village. 

I put this outfit together based on my current wardrobe staples. Leather and denim are really popular fabrics right now, and I couldn't stray away from my usual all black everything look. My absolute biggest obsession though? The Prada backpack I'm carrying. Backpacks are being used now more than ever for aesthetic purposes, but the best part is they really are functional! Prada's backpack is smaller in size, but enough to fit a laptop + all of my essentials - making it perfect for class and a day out. All outfit links will be at the bottom of the post.

Fifth Avenue Fashion

It's been a gorgeous fall season so far in New York City. As the holidays are approaching, one of the best places in Manhattan is Fifth Avenue. One of my first stops every year at the beginning of November is Ralph's Coffee Shop at the Polo Ralph Lauren store on Fifth Avenue. 

With suited up businessmen and well-dressed women walking in and out to grab their afternoon pick me up, I felt obligated to get a little dressy.

With a little snow on the ground in Manhattan, the best place to admire it is Central Park. I was definitely channeling an edgy Blair Waldorf vibe with this outfit. My basic ribbed black turtleneck is my go-to piece looks great with everything!
