New York City Recap

I'm baaaack.

Hi guys!  I got back late from New York on Wednesday night after my flight from LaGuardia to Tampa kept getting delayed [I was supposed to be back in Florida at 7:15pm, but that is when we ended up leaving- bah humbug].  I have to say though, I totally get why people are obsessed with NYC!  It was such an amazing trip, filled with sightseeing and my BFF making me laugh (annnnd watching some old Laguna Beach episodes late at night).  We went to the top of the Empire State Building, Bryant Park, the NYC Public Library, a rock climbing gym and pizza place in Brooklyn, Times Square, The Village, Central Park, etc... we fit a lot into my 5 day trip, and I cannot wait to go back to visit again!

Here are some [ahem- quite a few] pictures from my trip (the lovely lady in most of the pictures is my best friend from college, Chelsea!):

 These are my friends from my job during college that we met up with (& Chelsea, of course :D) and me [freezing] on top of the Empire State building!

My beeeautiful bestie and I killed time waiting for the subway with photo shoots...


I have really dumb luck... and while at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, I managed to stick my hand in a pile of FRESH BIRD POOP.  [Only me.]

We went to Magnolia Bakery a couple of times- SO YUMMO!

Patterned coat with hood: Borrowed from Chelsea
Red floral bandage skirt: Borrowed from Chelsea
Black tights: On clearance for, like, $2.50 at Target
Black buckle boots (AKA My "Katniss Boots"): DSW $39.94
Patterned cross body purse: $8 at American Eagle
 Turquoise & silver earrings: $1.50 at Forever 21

 Times Square

My rock climbing harness looked like a G-String.  You can disregard that if you want.


There was a huge screen in Times Square.  You can check us out in the top right corner.  I look the prettiest [with my center part bangs & puckered face], obviously.

Now I am back home in Florida, recovering from a horrible sore throat and cough.  My body didn't appreciate the lack of sleep and cold weather from the past week, but it sure was worth it!  I already miss my best friend and am so excited to come back to visit again :)
