Printed leggings and Top 10 Things I loved in New York

I am still pumped up from my trip and I told you I was going to give my top 10 things I loved about NYC. But I am actually going to give you my first 5. Here goes:
1. You should visit McSorley's Old Ale House.
This bar opened in 1854 and everything has stayed in original place since then. If you like history definitely visit here.


These handcuffs were left here by Harry Houndini.

This chair was used by Abraham Lincoln to give a speech at McSorley's.

2. The people in NYC are so friendly. Every time I asked someone a question, they were more than willing to help me.

3. We stayed at the Hilton in Chelsea on the 19th floor. Every morning and night my view was of  Empire State building.

This is the view from their roof top bar called Rare.
4. I finally got to go to MJ trimmings which is a person who does DIYs dream. Anything you need to make something, they have. But if you can't get to NYC, you can visit them at here.

5. Everytime I go to NYC, I  finally learn the ins-and-outs of how to ride the subway and it always a cool experience.


Lastly, that brings me to my printed leggings.
Tribal print leggings- Forever 21


 I bought these leggings at Forever 21 while in NYC. Printed leggings are great to wear with a solid tunic, shirt dress, or just with a long shirt and a blazer. I plan to wear these many times in this fall. Ryan took this picture while we were in Times Square. I think everyone should visit it at least once, but with the amount of people in the space it can be a little overwhelming.

What do you wear leggings the most with? Do you tend to wear them in one season more than another?

 Linking up with Watch what I am wearing  and Visible Monday .

I will finish my last 5 things I loved about New York trip in my next post.

  5. I have never been to NYC so it was great to see your.perspective. What's your view on printed leggings for someone a little older and not nearly as slim as you?

    1. My view is I think leggings can be worn at any age and body type. I think you might want to consider something in a solid and not a crazy print, if you are not entirely comfortable in leggings. Also, in the colder months I use leggings like they are tights.Thanks for asking a great question.

    1. Thanks you my sweets, Ryan said, "Oh, man a truck went by." I thought that was what made the picture cool.

  7. The truck says "Nyack". I spent my freshman year of college in Nyack, NY, just up the Hudson River from my favorite city! Smooches!
