Last weekend, my aunts were visiting from New Hampshire and wanted to be tourists (understandable as they, in fact, tourists) in the city. On Saturday morning, I agreed to meet them on the High Line for a walk before lunch. I didn’t realize it was going to be 20 degrees and windy. OMFreezing fingers! It was a brutal 30 minutes but so beautiful despite the icy temps.
My husband is a fabulous photographer and took some lovely shots of our little excursion so I jumped in front of him for some unexpected photos of my outfit which is what I’ve been living in as of late (boots, hat, gloves, etc). He captured the day beautifully. I cannot even explain to anyone not from here how cold it’s been lately. I’m officially counting down the seconds until tomorrow morning when we fly out to Turks & Caicos. #overit #peacethefuckout.
If you’ve never been to the High Line, it is a must! Not to get all nostalgic on you but we took some of our engagement photos there.

Love the pics – they reconfirm that I still want to check out High Line next time we get down to the city. We were on a restricted walking schedule the last time the hubs and I were in town, back in Nov for the NYC Marathon. Looking forward to less running, more shopping next trip 🙂
Have fun in the Caribbean and bring some warm weather back, would you!?

You must! It’s the best. Better and greener in the summer of course 🙂
“Better” and “greener” would be glorious right now. More snow today – ugh!
Love this! You look super chic and warm, something that I’m finding harder and harder to do as winter drags on!
The High Line is one of my favorite spots in the city, even if it is super touristy when it’s nice out. Love that look too!
I love the photos. We lived in London Terrace when we were first married. (Last photo) I would love to blow up a copy of the last photograph for my husband. Would your husband consider sharing his photo?
Love your blog!
Hi Melissa, Shoot me an email at email@example.com and we can definitely get this set up for you!
Obsessed with this coat, love the touch of brown with the gloves.
Great pictures & I love your look! Have so much fun on your vacation, I’m jealous you’ll be in the warmth!

love the high line and jealous that you get to enjoy it all the time – even when it is freezing! despite the temps, you still look so chic.
this winter is killing me – bring on spring!
Great photos! I’ve only experienced the High Line in the depths of winter…looking forward to a visit in the Spring in it’s full glory.
I’ve lived in New York my whole life, and never have experienced the High Line. Maybe after I graduate in May and head back to NYC, I’ll get to go. Never a bad thing to be a tourist in your own city – especially when you know what you’re doing 😉

You need to do it! It’s so easy to forget all of the amazing things that surround us in New York. Experiencing them changes the way I view the city!
