Ever since I watched Home Alone (part 2) movie, I wanted to visit NYC during Christmas. Though I fulfilled it 2 years back, but it was rather a one day trip and I was not able to visit all the places I wanted to. So, when we were deciding where to go for our annual girlfriends trip, I immediately said NYC. I feel it’s one of the must visit cities with girlfriends as there is so much to do from shopping to tourist-ing  to spa-ing to partying.

We stayed at Marriott Marquis hotel at Broadway avenue so we had a great view of Times Square from our room (if you follow me on snapchat, you would already know). We woke up to hustle and bustle of the city every morning that never seize to end. On Day 2 of our trip after tourisiting WTC, 9/11 memorial and Empire state building, we walked to Times Square before we headed out for dinner, strolling around for a while, taking pictures and enjoying the bright lights. We even saw a proposal, the guy popped the question right in the middle of the red stairs and the girl said YES. It was such a cute moment, everyone around were congratulating them and they literally looked the most happiest couple in the world.

I am not a huge city girl, but I love and enjoy places that never sleep. Times Square is one of those place that amuse me even at 3.00 am in the morning. All this pictures were taken post midnight, see how much crowd was there. New York is indeed the city that never sleeps

Then, we took a taxi to Kati Rolls, an Indian restaurant that is very popular for its rolls and they open all night until 5.00 am in the morning (not surprised anymore).  The place was very rustic which got us a little scared as it was post midnight but the staff were amicable and the place was crowded with people. We were so hungry that nothing mattered as soon as we saw food. We ate everything, before I could take pictures! The food was delicious, didn’t disappoint us at all. I highly recommend to anyone who love Indian food.

For the outfits, it wasn’t very cold during our 3 days stay in NYC so a we lived in tights and skirts most of our trip. Our outfits were very seasonal as we enjoyed the season prints and colors.

Tips on what to wear in NYC in November

  1. Go with Season Prints and colors like Fair Isle, Plaid, Red, White and Green
  2. As it is holiday season, a bit of shimmer won’t hurt at all.
  3. Comfy shoes are a must as you need to stand in long lines- riding boots, sneakers and hunter boots are my favorites, they are easy to pack (both riding and hunter boots fold), cute looking and comfortable to walk.
  4. Accessories play a major role in colder months and also when you are travelling, they take less space and can easily make your outfit stand out. Statements earrings, sequins or pom pom beanies, printed scarves and holiday socks easily dress up any outfit.
