A Stylish Guide To New York

A few weeks ago I got invited on a whirlwind trip to New York with The White Company and British Airways. We had just over 24 hours in the City that never sleeps, but the main purpose of the trip was to test out the new bedding in British Airways Club World designed by The White Company. Now I quite enjoy flying, especially in Business Class… 7 hours of not moving, watching movies and eating all the chocolate from the Club Kitchen is my idea of HEAVEN. The bedding made it all the more enjoyable; a topper, quilt, blanket and big pillow to cosy up with while relaxing on a flat-lay bed; I’ve had worse days.

 

Em in NYC…

Where to Eat, Sleep & Shop in The Big Apple…

 

I take my Travelling outfit very seriously! Comfort and Layering are key. These Joggers from Zara have been a great addition to my off-duty wardrobe, the perfect mix of Smart/Casual and this coat from Label/Mix is the ideal chuck on over anything piece.

Sleep…

 

I stayed at The Plaza, which of course makes you instantly think of Kevin McCallister and Home Alone. It’s a traditional hotel overlooking Central Park, and I was over excited to find Le Labo products in the bathroom (that may or may not have come home with me…) The Ludlow is a great option if you’re looking for something a little cooler downtown.

 

Eat…

 

Sant Ambroeus– You may have seen the famous plate wall on Instagram, that’s obviously what led me to check out the Italian eaterie. A vibrant restaurant serving classic Milanese dishes. Perfect for lunch or a casual dinner.

The Moxy Times Square– We ate dinner here, delicious sharing plates in a lively atmosphere. Heidi Klum was hosting her famous Halloween party on the rooftop as we ate. A good bar for pre & post dinner cocktails too.

 

Sel Rrose– If you are looking for somewhere a little off the beaten track then head to Sel Rrose. With its Pink wooden doors, this place is totally Instagrammable! A charming place to stop by for Cocktails, Oysters & Tapas Style food.

Cecconi’s Dumbo– Italian Restaurant in Brooklyn, think wood-fired pizzas & pasta, complemented by cocktails with waterfront views of the Manhattan Skyline.

Shop…

 

It’s quite incredible how much shopping I managed to squeeze in in the space of a few hours; I was on a mission! All in the name of research of course.

 

The White Company– Newly opened and the first store in the US. A beautiful shop filled with everything The White Company is known for. The smell of Christmas hits you as you walk in from the array of seasonal candles on display.

 

 

 

Sezane– Stylish Parisian’s favourite Sezane has opened its first store in the US. Head to the Nolita area to find chic, affordable clothes and accessories in a beautifully designed store.

Ulla Johnson– My go-to Designer for Bohemian Style dresses has it’s own stand alone store down Bleeker Street, which is every bit as pretty as the clothes themselves.

 

 

NYC is one of my favourite City’s in the world. Walking around The Meatpacking District, down Bleeker, through SoHo, ending up in Nolita, you discover so many cool shops, restaurants, and bars.
