Preppy in New York

Hello NYC, 

We have a love/hate relationship. I went to NYC for the weekend for my best friend’s birthday and stayed at the Lexington Hotel. Of course there are tons of things to do in New York and yes, shopping and eating were our top priorities. 

First stop: Brunch at the Lexington Brass. Great food but mediocre service. 

  Drinking a bellini is a great way to start the day. Cheers.

  I had the smoked salmon eggs benedict with caviar. #fancy

  All great food! 

We went shopping on 5th avenue then went over to the 9/11 Memorial musuem. Here’s a tip: buy your ticket online in advanced. The ticket booth lines were ridonkulous. 

 
There’s not much to say because you have to experience it for yourself. It’s a must see. Warning: wear waterproof mascara and bring a handkerchief. It was very crowded but it didn’t phase me. The heartfelt emotion will effect you no matter what. #neverforget

 
We went shopping again and I went to Vineyard Vines where I bought a VV New york t-shirt.

  
Then off to dinner at a Filipino restaurant called Maharlika. I recommend the spam fries and taro cheesecake. Ah-mazeballs. 
  Wishing this beaut the happiest birthday! After dinner we went to a lounge where Pusha-T was performing. (I had no idea who he was at the time haha)

The next day we went to brunch and walked around the Rockefeller Center. I didn’t know NYC was so big on Easter because they closed off parts of 5th avenue to celebrate it.

   

  

 This seersucker trench coat is made by Tommy Hilfiger from Marshalls for $70. If you can’t find it at your local Marshalls, you can get it from Macy’s for $179.50.

   
 We concluded our trip by eating macarons from Bouchon Bakery in front of the ice skating rink.

Great weekend with my friends. Until we meet again New York… 

xoxo,
