Holiday Spirit

bryant park christmas tree nyc ice skating

I’ve slowly been making my way through my holiday bucket list in NYC! This stop, Bryant Park. The tree is giant and gorgeous, the shops are bustling, and the ice rink sparkles in the middle of it all. While I wasn’t able to ice skate on this particular day, it was fun to be in the Christmas spirit for a morning before work!

I’m constantly on the lookout for shoes and booties that will easily take me from sunup to sundown. I always prefer to wear some sort of a heel, but when you’re running around NYC all day, comfortable shoes that are easy to walk in are an absolute necessity! Thankfully, I’ve found a few go-to pairs of heeled booties that I’m able to wear all day, without worrying about my feet.

Meet my new Carolinna Espinosa booties! I typically shy away from booties with a thin heel because I just assume that they will be harder to walk in, but that’s not the case with these. I seriously wore these from about 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. (while walking to-and-from the subway, etc.) and didn’t ever have to stop and worry about achey feet. (Plus, how cute is the criss-cross buckle? Love!) As soon as I opened up the shoe box, I was super impressed with the quality of these booties. Carolinna Espinosa uses high-quality European materials so it’s no wonder why the booties look and feel so luxurious!

    I love that Theory coat…we have it at Otte too and I’ve been eyeing it all season. Might have to happen ASAP! I went ice skating at Bryant Park recently, the best time to go really is in the morning, that’s when it’s the least busy!
