Christmas In New York City

I spent the day walking around New York yesterday!  The weather was crisp and not too cold and I really enjoyed looking at the beautiful Christmas decorations and people watching.  I stopped and ate tuna tartare at a great little French restaurant just off Madison Avenue and it was heaven.  Last night, Garrick and I went to the holiday market at Bryant Park and shopped around a little and then went to Elio's for dinner.  I had venison for the very first time...mostly because I was trying not to eat a plate full of pasta, and I loved it.  Elio's is such a fun, bustling place and every now and then you see a celebrity (last time we saw Tom Selleck), but unfortunately not last night.  Anyway, our food was absolutely delicious and it was a perfect evening.  We're leaving today and I always want to stay just one more day to do all of the things that I didn't have time to do!  I guess I'll just have to come back soon!

While we were here, I did a photo shoot with Jeanne Rene Barousse.  She is an amazing photographer and we had so much fun.  The pictures of me are just a sample of some that we took, but the full blog post is coming!  The rest of the pictures are some that I took while walking around.  My skirt, believe it or not came from Forever 21 and was just $38.00!  I wore it over leather leggings (these are on sale for $29.00) with my Stuart Weitzman platform boots, a black turtleneck and faux fur vest.  I'll be wearing this to a Christmas party for sure!

I loved seeing the windows at Saks!  It's a miracle that we got this picture because there were so many people!  This coat by Adriene Landau is definitely a head turner and I wore it with a turtleneck, jeans and Michael Kors sandals that I bought while in NYC!

I loved walking around the New York City Public Library!  It's a huge, beautiful building!  I didn't have a chance to go inside, but it's on the list for the next trip!  The lions are named Patience and Fortitude...I'm not sure which one this was!
