Strolling through Central Park

Saturday, Husband and I spent most of the day on the Upper East Side and strolling through Central Park. It was simply gorgeous covered in glistening snow, and the shopping on Fifth Avenue, Madison, and Park is to die. I even embraced my inner Blair and sat on the steps of the Met. Here's a little inside peek into our Upper East Side adventures:
The Archibald apartment, perhaps?
There's a Plaza Athenée in NYC too!
The salon 
I swear this is where Carrie meets Alexander Petrovsky and not the Plaza Athenée in Paris!
Chanel-lo! (in the Anthony Marantino voice)
Husband's birthday present to me: my very own Chanel ballet flats! Squeeeee!
Central Park stroll
I adore those horse and carriage rides!
The site of Blair and Serena's heart to heart circa season 1... remember?
The Boathouse... and the lake Carrie and Big fell into.
Pretty park fountains
The Boathouse - the views from inside are to die.
Belvedere Castle in Central Park.
I'm a sucker for a castle. Tee hee.
Fifth Avenue address: this just screams Vanderbilt, oui?  
And because it was so breathtaking...
I took three photos.
The Met! Yogurt on the steps, ladies?
Fifth Avenue along the Park.
3 syllables: Lou-bou-tin!
Why do you tease me so?
and Bendel's! 2 of the Big B's.
Adore those brown and white stripes!
Later in the evening, we met one of my besties and her boyfriend for a Mediterranean dinner date followed by cocktails at a jazz bar. Another fabulous NYC day!
Wishing you all a wonderful Wednesday. XO

I'm so jealous! I absolutely love NYC. I'd like to spend this coming summer there, but it's likely not to happen.

Looks like you are having a fabulous time! Oh, and as for the Chanel flats ...I die!
