Young and in Love in NYC // Central Park

After a crazy month of final exams, present prep and saying goodbye to friends at college, I’m finally home for the holidays! I’m beyond excited to spend quality time with my family over the next couple of weeks…I’ve missed them so much! A few days ago, my boyfriend Mike and I headed into the Big Apple to explore all things Christmas! Growing up, I’ve always had this dream of exploring Central Park with someone I love. Going there with Mike was seriously a dream come true for me!

We started our day by boarding the crowded train in New Jersey. After only an hour’s time, we made it to New York City! Our first stop was Times Square which was flooded with tourists from all over the world basking in the holiday spirit. We stopped at Starbucks for a little “pick me up” to prep us for a day full of lots of walking.

As we made our way uptown, we finally reached Central Park. I was giddy with joy to have Mike by my side in one of my favorite places in the whole world! Hand in hand, we made our way around the Park, laughing, joking and taking lots of photos!

The Christmas Vendor’s were set up in the Park and we decided to stop and take a look. Mike bought me my perfect white pom hat that I’ve been on the hunt for…I’m seriously obsessed with it and put it on right away! As far as my outfit goes, I went for a more casual look and decided to make a statement in my new cherry red puffer jacket! I wore my favorite black Quay aviators which are my go-to sunglasses no matter the occasion. I find that they always help to polish any look I’m going for. Like I mentioned before, I popped on my white pom hat to add the perfect winter touch to the look! Whenever I’m in the city, I also find that carrying a cross-body purse is the best idea; this way, I can keep a close eye on my belongings. I wore my favorite black Michael Kors bag with gold detailing that is seriously the perfect size!

The whole day was so magical and truly unforgettable. There’s something about the Christmas spirit in the air in New York City. I’m so happy that I got to experience the joy of the holidays with him!

XO, Lexie
