Leather Season

Thanks for sponsoring NORDSTROM and ShopStyle

I love going to lunch with girlfriends and on dates with my husband in NYC. It’s honestly one of the biggest reasons I’d never be able to move anywhere else. We love to try new restaurants and venues. Lately my kind of dressing up is in my favorite LEATHER PANTS. They are buttery soft and super flattering. They are a splurge piece but a staple you will wear all year long. L’agence leather pants have a cult following and I definitely know why everyone raves about them. NORDSTROM makes it easy and is my one stop shop to find all the essentials for the perfect DATE LOOK. Whether you need a pretty dress with heels or a more casual look, Nordstrom has 1000’s of options to choose from. The sky’s the limit when it comes to date night options. Nordstrom’s Exclusive Brands are always my first to shop. I like that no other store offers these looks.

My favorite places to eat & drink in NYC

All tried & tested by me.


New restaurant opened by Tao Group based out of Moxy Hotel, East Village. Inspired French-Mediterranean Food. The main dining room has 26-foot ceilings and there is a garden terrace with retractable roof. Great atmosphere for dinner with friends. Highly recommend Hamachi Crudo, Salmon & Chicken.

The Crosby Hotel Bar

A tranquil gem in Soho. Host a meeting over afternoon tea (best they serve gluten free afternoon tea) or cocktails with friends at the bar, with gorgeous decor and loft like windows! The Crosby Hotel is part of The Firmdale Group, they gorgeous hotels in London & NYC.  Open all day for breakfast, brunch, lunch & dinner or coffee, cocktails and afternoon tea.

Le Jardinier

Decor, food, service & atmosphere was superb. I had dinner with girlfriends and we were drooling over the amazing decor & furniture. Highly recommend Hickory Salad & Salmon.They have a small bar great to host a meeting. They are open for lunch & dinner. Great place for dinner with friends & date night.

The Fulton 

Jean-Georges seafood restaurant overlooking the Brooklyn Bridge located South Seaport.  Windows spanning floor to ceiling to admire the beautiful view while dining. Open for Lunch, Dinner & Brunch


UNDER $100 Leather options

NYC date ideas-

1.Brooklyn Botanical Garden – This is more of a day date idea or family date idea. This season it’s magical to stop in. From October-December they have it decorated for every holiday. It’s beautiful. In December we love walking with hot cocoa and checking out the train exhibit. It’s beautiful.

2.The River Cafe in Brooklyn – I recently had my first experience here. The views are beautiful and the vibe is super romantic and cozy. Dress up for this one. So many beautiful DRESSES here. 

3.Central Park BoatHouse – I love this spot for a romantic brunch or dressed up outing with the family. Get on the boats after if you want to keep the vibe going. I’d wear a MAXI DRESS and HAT for this date. 

4.Le Cou Cou – This was so pretty inside! This is located in SoHo and we loved the atmosphere. We love to shop the cobblestone streets and sometimes walk over to The Highline. It’s pretty romantic. A BLAZER,  ANKLE STRAP HEELS, and LEATHER SKINNY JEANS are perfect for this date night.

5.Cafe Lalo and The Met Museum – We do this combo of a date a couple times a year. The cute Cafe Lalo was first seen in the movie You’ve got Mail. We love to grab a bite and then spend time at The Met. I’d wear this JUMPSUIT and JACKET. With these ANKLE STRAP HEELS

6.Bond St Restaurant – My friend Brooke introduced us to this hot spot. It’s so good and we love the vibe. I dream of the sushi here. A dress or skinny jeans with a pretty blouse would be perfect!

NORDSTROM  is my one-stop, high-low, destination for my entire family. We get all our shopping done in one place. The outfit versatility for 7 days a week dressing is the best part. I can find my athleisure gear, exercise/active apparel, work clothes, and anything for special occasions or trips that pop up.
