empire state of mind

/ showing off my new dress on a sunny monday /

i figured i better start posting some pics and stories from our recent travels before i forget them all!

/ i know it's fuzzy but thought it looked cool /

every day this week i wore a new wardrobe piece, but i only took pictures on monday because i have such a hard time getting good pics out of my little digital camera when i put it on timer. i'll have to work on it and then post some more. this dress was one AD found for me - love it!

on our first day in new york, reuben and i decided to do a bit of shopping down broadway in soho - steve madden (reuben's favourite shoes), topshop and h&m (my fave) to name a few. nearly every shop was having a sale, so we scored some great bargains. i (luckily!) picked up a great pair of brown boots that i ended up wearing nearly every day of our vacation in order to keep warm and brave the snow that showed up after christmas.

after we did a bit of shopping by ourselves, we met up with reuben's parents and decided to go to the empire state building at dusk so we could get the day- and night-time views. my personal favourite has always been at night. by my count this was (at least) my 6th time up and it was the first time i'd gone to the highest visitor floor - the 106th floor. while this area was much smaller at least it was inside!

after our touristy stop, we were off to lombardi's to experience some little italy deliciousness. oh how i missed new york pizza. i wish i could get one delivered every night.
