New York Layers

Burberry coat (my review), Blank NYC moto jacket xs, Mossimo faux fur vest

Nick and I both had meetings in NYC this week, so figured we'd make a long weekend out of it and spend quality time with friends! I was running late and left Boston in a mad rush, forgetting all of my scarves, hats, and gloves on what felt like the coldest weekend in years. Nick is always wagging his finger at my procrastination habit, so was unsympathetic when I tried to steal his gear. Thankfully it wasn't too bad when I wore practically everything in my suitcase all at once...long sleeved tee, topped with a moto jacket, faux fur vest, and finished off with a wool coat. I always pack those two middle pieces for easy layering in unpredictable weather.

We've always wanted to walk across Brooklyn Bridge for the views, and happened to end up in that area on Monday. These are certainly not the best shoes for a snowy hike, but it is what it is and our hotel was too far for a change. Thankfully I've protectant-sprayed all my boots which I'm sure helped to some extent, and they proved to be comfortable for long walks even in inclement weather. Few pedestrians were out in the snow so we got much of the beautiful bridge to ourselves!

I also brought along two spring dresses, winter-ized simply with dark tights and heels, plus my black moto jacket + coat on top. We were both feeling under the weather so ate a lot of room service or takeout in bed with HGTV marathons on - few things beat that in terms of comfy pleasures!

No food pictures this time, but some highlights were:
- Izakaya MEW - loved the variety there of small dishes to share (sushi, stews, ramen, grilled items, and much more) while you drink. Some notable dishes recommended by yelp reviewers were the salmon avocado sushi tacos and the creamy kimchee udon noodles with shrimp.
- CDG tofu house - their homemade soft tofu and chicken ginseng soup / "sam gae tang" hit the spot on a sick night in. We were surprised to see the chicken was an entire cornish game hen stuffed with sticky rice in a giant vat of broth (comes with sea salt that you add yourself). The takeout was wonderfully packaged with lots of generously-sized banchan side dishes.

Ending this post with an unrelated restock alert - thanks to a nice reader for letting me know the Sole Society studded low pumps have finally been restocked in the neutral "adobe" color! I've worn these countless times...see all the pairings that made it to the blog. The low heel is comfortable for prolonged wear, and the neutral color doesn't truncate short legs. I found the toe area to run narrow, so would suggest going half a size up if that's usually a troublesome area for you.

  13. wow, the brooklyn bridge picture is amazing. I mean all your photos are great. I don't know much about photos but this one just blew me away, perfect angle, perfect scenery, perfect model and the perfect photographer (I'm guessing your husband?). I just love how things just blended in naturally.

  17. Beautiful pictures. I was wondering what shade/brand lipstick you're wearing in the boba shop. It's a perfect shade for you.

  19. Hi Jean,

    You and Wendy are so cute!

    Where do you buy your tights from?

    1. Most of mine are from Talbots! It's their opaque hosiery, not tights per se, but they fit me really well.

  21. Love that Burberry jacket and that you wore your SW's in the snow! I also wore mine on that snow day but mine are leather so they help up pretty well. Also, you got the prettiest shot on the bridge!

    1. Thanks, Nicole! It's from a British brand called Noose & Monkey but it is sold out on their site unfortunately. I found a few left on ASOS in limited sizing though: http://us.asos.com/search/noose-monkey-camel?q=noose+monkey+camel

      It's astounding how hard it is to find a slim-fit, classic camel coat for men too! Not sure why more brands don't make such a design!

  23. That Brooklyn Bridge picture is absolutely stunning!

  25. Your "thrown together outfit" looks totally planned an rightfully effortless. I love your tip to include the vest and moto jacket regardless of where you are going as just in case items for unpredictable weather.

    Thanks for sharing, travel friendly style tips are my favorite!
