Christmas in NYC!

Yesterday, my mother and I headed out on our annual trip to New York City that we take every fall. It was our 8th year going, and sadly it was probably our last because of my going to college next year!! This was also the latest in the year that we've ever gone, which was nice because we got to see the fabulous Christmas decorations in the city!!

We took the train in to Grand Central, which only takes about 50 minutes! It wasn't crowded at all, thankfully, and we headed out onto Madison Avenue straight away. 

This picture doesn't really look like much, but if you're an avid Gossip Girl lover then you will recognize this area as being Chuck Bass' Palace Hotel!! 

Here are the window displays at Tiffany's!! They were so pretty this year and my mom and I stopped at every single one to see the various jewels and the movements of the sets. 

Here are the decorations at Trump Tower...

More store decorations...

And here is the Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center!! It was noticeably small this year, though. Rockefeller Center was absolutely packed

I AM SO HAPPY THAT I SAW THIS. At Barney's, they were doing a special tribute display for Lady Gaga for Christmas. Since I am absolutely obsessed with Lady Gaga, I made sure that we would stop by Barney's to take pictures. 

My mom and I made sure to stop by Lilly Pulitzer on Madison...

Everything is hand painted and I LOVE EVERYTHING.

My mom made reservations at a restaurant in NYC called the King's Carriage House. It was an absolutely adorable British inspired restaurant and we were so obsessed. The service was great, the food was great, and the interior design of the place was perfect!! 

All in all, my mom and I had a great time shopping in New York City!

Have a great day!!

xoxo, Hannah
