nyc travel diary.

TGIF! Today I’m sharing a recap of my week in NYC. (*Warning: major photo overload coming your way!*) My sister and I had such a great time exploring new parts of the city, got to catch up with lots of friends and family, and ate ((and drank! ;)) like queens all week long. I’d say it was a successful trip! Check out some of the highlights below…

I spent one afternoon (while Kerry was working) just wandering the streets of Chelsea. So much charm!

This was my first time checking out Chelsea Market and I was super impressed! Such a fun spot to grab a bite to eat and wander around.

Buddakan in Chelsea Market is a must for dinner. You may recognize it from the Sex and the City movie… this is where Carrie & Big’s rehearsal dinner was! Serious chandelier goals!!!

Palma in the West Village has the cutest indoor garden patio and yummy Italian food.

Jack’s Wife Freda is one of those places that I’ve seen all over instagram so of course we had to try it! There’s a couple locations, we went to the one in the Nolita/SoHo area. We met a good friend of mine and her little one there for brunch one rainy afternoon. So yummy!

A little shopping (not even the rain could hold us back! ;). I love walking around the streets of SoHo, but it can be super busy, so 5th Ave. is great too!

Brunch at the Little Owl with friends, a small little corner gem in the West Village!

Our afternoon in Central Park was a highlight of the trip! It is so gorgeous this time of the year. In case you missed it, you can check out all the photos here. We grabbed a coffee at the Plaza Food Hall (which is seriously amazing!) beforehand to keep us warm.

And of course, what is a trip to NYC without pizza?! Lombardi’s in SoHo is a family fave so we had to make a stop on our last night in the city.
