Sometimes I have to take a minute to stop and think about how fortunate and lucky I am to live in the city I do. Year round there are always new places to check out, restaurants to try, and events to attend, but the holiday season is truly special. During the holidays I absolutely love checking off the traditional landmarks and festivities that characterize the city. Matt and I knew we were nuts for bringing Hadley into Bryant Park with us around the holidays, but we just couldn’t leave her out of the fun. During the winter month Bryant Park transforms into the winter village, and sets up a plethora of holiday shops and various food vendors. The ice skating rink is always the main attraction, as well as the decorated tree. It really is a great place to walk around (and, of course, people watch) this time of year – so long as you can deal with the crowds. For this outing, I paired my fair isle sweater with a puffy vest and over the knee boots, which to me is the perfect cozy weekend outfit.
