The Best Holiday Spots in NYC

Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree – This is a no-brainer if you’re going to be in NYC around Christmas time. The tree is so amazing to see in person, and you can watch the ice skaters as well.

Radio City Christmas Spectacular – I’m so excited, we are finally going to see the Rockettes this year! I’ve heard it’s so great in person…can’t wait!

Bryant Park Winter Village – The ultimate ‘Christmas in Manhattan’ destination. See everything they have to offer here.

Ice Skating in Central Park – While there are several other rinks throughout NYC, I think Central Park is the most magical! So fun to skate with your family/friends, or just to watch everyone else!

Holiday Windows – up and down 5th Ave (I like to start at Bergdorf’s and go south on 5th). You could end your window viewings at Saks, then head across the street to the tree at Rockefeller Center.

Visit Hotels & Festive Lobbies – This one isn’t as obvious when it comes to NYC/the holidays, but it’s one of my favorite things to do! NYC hotels go alllll out during the holidays, it’s pure magic! Also a great opportunity to warm up and grab a drink! 😉 My favorites are The Plaza, The Peninsula, The Palace (such a gorgeous courtyard), and The Baccarat Hotel.

How beautiful is this dress from REISS? So excited it came just in time for a holiday party I have this weekend! I love the button details on the side and the color is stunning – even better in person! It also comes in navy or silver. I saw they just released a similar dress in green velvet…ahh! SO good.

This sparkly clutch is perfect for the holiday season (along with date nights and formal events/weddings). I didn’t have a bag that was great for black tie or formal events, so wanted a clutch that would go with everything, and this one is great. It also has a chain strap that you can wear on your shoulder, or just tuck inside the bag like I did. The quality is amazing, and it’s under $250, but I would say it’s comparable to clutches I’ve seen for over $1,000.

As much as I would love to be able to wear a cute little holiday dress by itself, that’s not my reality ;). It’s freeeezing (if you can’t tell by my goosebumps lol). I’ve been wearing this coat all the time lately, and I love how it can be dressed up or down. It’s definitely fancy enough over a dress for holiday parties. A closet staple I’ll have for years. The faux fur collar is removable as well making it even more versatile. REISS has so many amazing coats right now – drooling over all of them!
