As a frequent reader of my blog you may already know that I left for NYC over the weekend. It felt great to return to one of my favorite cities to work on some exciting projects, as well as to connect with friends and try out new restaurants.



I left I early in the morning (my flight was at 5:45AM) to head back to the Big Apple. This time my husband (and my boys) stayed home, though. So, I brought Aldrin along, a photographer from Chicago. We truly had the best time together.


Our first stop was at Dumbo. Little did we know how busy attraction Dumbo would be. We arrived around 9AM and Washington St, (the street with the Manhattan Bridge behind you) was already crowded, mostly tourists but tons of bloggers too. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever seen this many bloggers on one street trying to get the same shot. So, Aldrin and I left Washington St shortly after which gave us the opportunity to find an even better spot to take these amazing pictures instead.


The weather is definitely getting colder hence I decided to share some of my favorite “sweater weather must-haves” below. Happy Shopping!

Sweater Weather Faves



** The picture above is at Washington St, the famous street where tons of bloggers and tourists meet to take that infamous “DUMBO” photograph.


As always, thanks so much for reading & have a great week!
