NYC Recap || Part Three

Thursday was another great day in the city replete with fabulous, unforgettable adventures. Here's a photo-heavy look at our last full day in the big apple!

9:00 am- Em and I decided to forego the first part of the day at the SGGC in favor of a leisurely breakfast at The Smith. I had heard such great things about this non-nonsense restaurant online and we knew we just had to check it out for ourselves. The Upper West Side location was nothing short of picture-perfect and the oatmeal was divine. Everything was so visually appealing we couldn't help but snap tons of photos (which our waiter may or may not have caught us doing.. #whoops).

10:15 am- We walked the couple of blocks up to Fordham past The Empire Hotel (sadly no Chuck Bass sighting) and Lincoln Center. Of course we had to take advantage of the strangely empty streets to get some outfit pics! I loved my outfit for the day- comfortable and simple, yet chic.

7:15 pm- After the conference (and a stop at J. Crew) we quickly changed clothes and hopped on the subway in pursuit of lower Manhattan. The last time I came to the city the 9/11 Memorial was still in the process of being built so seeing it in person for the first time was quite impressive. It really is a beautiful tribute to the people whose lives were lost on that tragic day.

8:30 pm- Our last adventure of the day was walking The Brooklyn Bridge at sunset. In all the times I've visited the city I had never ventured to Brooklyn and I'm so so so glad we decided to do this- it was the perfect way to round out our trip. The views were completely breathtaking and it was amazing seeing the city all lit up from this perspective. I didn't think it was possible, but it really made me fall even more in love with this crazy place.

9:15 pm- We got to Brooklyn and immediately set out in search of food which we found relatively quickly thanks to Yelp. We arrived at Siggy's Good Food exhausted and starving and I'm not sure food and water have ever tasted so good. I highly recommend this quaint little place if you find yourself across the bridge- fresh/organic ingredients, a friendly staff, and an overall cozy environment (the veggie burger is not to be missed!).

Hope you've been enjoying reading about our trip thus far! I'll be back Wednesday with one last NYC Recap post then it will be back to business as usual around here! xo
