Cheers to Friday, friends! Thanks for all your love on this week’s posts…I’m thrilled you’re excited for the One Room Challenge, and were inspired by yesterday’s utility cart ideas. I love this little corner of the internet, and so appreciate all your support!
It’s because of y’all I was even in New York earlier this month, as part of the Better Homes & Gardens Stylemaker Event. I’ll share more on the one-day workshop soon, but today it’s all about the rest of our whirlwind visit to NYC.
Megan and I were able to stay an extra day, so we made the absolute most of our limited time in the city, and packed our itinerary with some of my favorite eats and activities.
DAY 2, 10am
We skipped breakfast the next morning, and headed over to Greenwich Village for one of my favorite NYC activities…a guided walking food tour. For three hours, our small group of food-lovers ate our way through the best little restaurants and shops in the heart of the Village.
It’s such a great way to learn about the history of a neighborhood, and discover favorite new restaurants. You can read all the details of the tour on Megan’s awesome post here.
I debated packing my rainboots since they take up so much space, but considering how much time you spend outside in New York, they were life-savers. It rained most of the day, but we didn’t let that slow us down. #frizzyhairdontcare

Not only did we stop to eat at nine different restaurants, but the guide pointed out Anna Wintour, Bob Dylan, and Anderson Cooper’s homes along the way.
Quick outfit change before heading out again!
After the show, we met Jen and Grace for a late dinner at Minutia Tavern, before heading to bed around 2 am!
DAY 3, 9 am
Time to head home with full hearts and bellies! #thankgoodnessforstretchyknits
Between the dry Texas heat and wet New York chill, packing was all about layers!

How you manage to look so cute when I would look like a wet dog is incredibly annoying! 🙂 Loved the trip recap! And now I want that pasta with the egg on top! YUM!
LOVE all of the NY pics – such a fun place! Also love all of your outfits – great styling ideas and I like how you are taking some of your pieces into fall!! thanks
I would go in a heartbeat!
Question (but first I have to say- loved this post and the ideas you gave me about my next trip to NYC!): Roughly how long is the food tour? Are each of the tours you've done fairly comparable? I am planning to go with my whole family, including a (sometimes surly) teen and it's helpful to have the heads up of how long things take. It will obviously help that food will be involved 🙂 Still, covering all bases. Thanks!
They are around 3 hours, but move quickly! This particular one we only sat in two restaurants (for about 15 mins each)…the rest are walk-in and eat standing, and move along quickly. So I think they do a really good job of keeping you involved. Plus the food is just so delicious!! Read Megan's post for the details of this exact one. Hope this helps!! xo
what size did u order in the swing dress? thanks
It runs pretty small…I'm wearing a small, and even that feels a little snug across the chest and shoulders. I figured it was bc I was so bloated! 😉
Oh, this makes me so homesick for NYC. I really miss it! Café Reggio was one of my favorite hangouts.
Rainboots make such a difference when you're trekking around the city.
Thanks for the photos! Looking all so wonderful ♥
I love, love, love NYC! Was there this summer on my 4th or 5th trip and did a walking food tour based on your recommendations as well as many others online. It was my favorite part of the trip!
Quick fashion question: what bra do you typically wear with the black camisole top? I've loved it every time you've shown it – but just can't figure out what would stay hidden, as well as be supportive.
I'm thrilled you tried and loved the food tours! Doesn't it make you want to try them all!? As for a bra, if I know I'm keeping my jacket on, I'll just wear a regular bra (or none!). If I'm wearing it alone, I'll wear the stick-on Nu-bra…works like a charm! xo
Perfect timing! I'm so itching to go back to NYC and really think I want to take my two adult kids and leave my littles at home!! I think we would have a blast together. Somewhat considering an air bnb.
Woman after my own heart. Always thinking about food and looking cute while doing it. We love New York. We visited the Highline park on a sunny day. Best use of an old elevated rail road ever! And "Waitress" was one of my favorite movies with funny and charming Keri Russell and the dishy Nathan Fillion. I'm sure I'd love the musical. I hear they bake pies everyday so the theater always smells just right.
The theatre smelled incredible, and the ushers were wearing little diner uniforms…it was all just too cute for words! I loved the movie too, but this was a whole other level!
Cassie, What lipstick are you wearing in these pics? I love it 🙂
Thanks so much! I love the Nars satin pencils…and Yu is my fave bright pink. Here's the link for you: http://bit.ly/2el67vn
Cassie …I’m a new follower of your blog and love it! Just wondering if you have some suggestions for makeup/products you pack for traveling. I always take too much of the wrong things. Thanks
