NYC Travel Diary

Hey guys! This week I am in one of my favorite cities, New York and I thought I would share with you my trip. It is a busy week with meetings, shooting content and taking in the city especially with all the Christmas decorations sprinkled throughout the city.

day one

We got the morning started with my favorite combination coffee + green juice. I needed the energy and nutrition. Coming from LA where driving is the way to get around town, I knew that I would need all the energy to walk the city. I am staying in the Lower East Side, but headed to some meetings in near Central Park.

I visited the showrooms of Etro, they are an Italian brand that blends bright colors and prints. I especially love their fun approach to making fashion be fun while chic.

Took an afternoon pit stop for coffee and headed through Central Park to take pictures before the next event.

Headed over to Killian Boutique to try some of their fragrances and ended with some delicious meatballs from The Meatball shop.

Went back and changed for an evening of events.

Visited Sonia Rykiel’s store and was loving all the details down to their handbags and accessories.

Headed over to Sak’s where we were blown away with the Holiday window displays and lights on the outside of their store. NY is just so magical during Christmas and saw the tree at Rockefeller center.

Headed across town to Hotel Vivier and for an outfit change for the Roger Vivier event. This is such a fun venue that is three stories! I wore these cool sneakers and silver handbag by Roger that was fun to style with some denim and oversized sweater. They also had the funniest dogs with sunglasses that I could not pass on the photo opportunity.

We all ended the night with some amazing pizza and wine, I highly recommend going to check out Brunetti.

day four

Checked out of our Airbnb and headed to The Assemblage hotel for a full day photoshoot.

I got to shoot some fun looks with Michael Kors, Etro, Victor Glemaud, M Missoni, Tod’s, Sonia Rykiel, Akris, Sally Lapointe, and BIRD. Full looks and shots are still to come. I worked with the amazing photographer Jessica Antola.

We were able to capture some fun shots outside in between the snow fall and cool shots inside the hotel.

Wrapped up shooting for the day and headed to the airport to fly back to LA.

I can’t wait to share more photos from my trip and some videos from my time here. What are your favorite things to do in the city?
