nyc / highlights








highlights
tulips + trees among the traffic.
yankees game.
the royal wedding hype.
anthropologie at rockefeller center
cathedrals + shopping on 5th ave.
kate's paperie in soho.

other favorite must-dos, not pictured
fishs eddy dishes shop, dean & deluca, H&M, the NY public library, uniqlo in soho, new york city running tours (the ideal way for an athlete to enjoy the sights and sounds of the city!), tiffany's, F.A.O. Schwartz (where we spotted victoria beckham in heels, her little boys and bodyguards picking out a new gaming system), lincoln center, the LDS temple, abc carpet and home, broadway shows and battery park. the russian matryoshka vendor was my favorite on-the-street find. next time, i definitely want to see the view from top of the rock. i've heard it's better than the empire state building.

p.s. i'd never been shopping in soho before this trip. i absolutely loved it. i fell hard for the j. crewish pieces at uniqlo. i never thought i'd say this, but it bumped H&M from first place in my shopping heart of all hearts. of course there is currently only one uniqlo in the country. but there will be more locations cropping up in nyc soon!

I've been loving your nyc posts, even living in that great city. It looks like you had a ton of fun! And, I am so glad you made it to Uniqlo. I knew you would love it!

These pictures are so sweet, Marta! Makes me want to book a trip to NYC with Chad.

The tulips shot is one of my favs...

I am so jealous that you got to go to NYC with Ariane. Did she introduce you to Uniqlo? You guys look so gorgeous, and NYC looks amazing in the spring. xo

Top of the Rock on a sunny day is the best view, 360 degree gorgeousness. My faves for dessert in NYC are Rice to Riches in Little Italy, but only if you love rice pudding of all flavors, and Serendipity on the upper east side on 60th. Get the frozen hot chocolate, yum!
