La Petite Peach_Pierrot la Lune 1

Pierrot la Lune is one of the most beautiful lines for children. Every season I am in awe of their beautiful collection.  This Danish brand embodies everything I love about European culture, this quality but playful feel for clothing that I just can’t get enough of.

One of my most favorite things about this collection (besides that it’s completely stunning) is that the boys items are just as perfect as the girls dresses. Fashion for little boys is SO hard to find but Pierrot la Lune does it perfectly.

You can but Pierrot la Lune in the US at Ladida, and Carousel New York.

La Petite Peach_things to do in NYC 24

Just in case you missed our Bonpoint visit make sure you check it out! I was thinking about how every time I go to NYC, I visit all the same places (such a creature of habit). When Wesleigh and I last went, we really branched out and tried some new things…

We went shopping, tried new foods, hit up food trucks, and explored new neighborhoods. I have to say though, don’t leave the city without doing these (below) 11 things!

Of course, we went to all our favorite places we always go to as well. I mean there is no way I am leaving NYC without a fabulous brunch or strolling the aisles at Eataly for goodies to bring home. Here are my new, and old, go-to spots.

By the way have you subscribed to the newsletter yet?! There are AMAZING GIVEAWAYS coming up in the next 4 weeks and you must be a email subscriber to enter. Sign up on the HOMEPAGE under the nav. bar item “SUBSCRIBE”!

Food Truck: By far the best thing that ever happened to me is, Waffles and Dinges , it’s just like the mini waffles I used to get on the side of the road in Florence.

Brunch: Everyone in NYC does brunch, and I know New Yorkers are rolling their eyes, but Balthazar is amazing and I won’t leave the city without at least walking by!

Coffee on the go: Dean and Deluca is one of those places where you stop for a quick coffee/shopping break and you leave with flowers, fresh fruit, a smoothie, 4 types of cheeses you have never heard of, honey from France, and 2 new types of olive oil. O.k. maybe that’s just me?

Kids Shopping: This is it’s own blog post, seriously, but Bonpoint is so gorgeous and it’s next to Ladurée so it’s a double wammy! Sweet William and Giggle are also favorites.

A Salad: Jack’s Wife Freda is a super cute café in Soho with killer salads!

Music: I have been following Carte Blanche for years and seeing them play live in the city is something you just have to see for yourself.

Bath and Body: Sabon in NYC is a lovely place to get bath and body products. I have been using the scrub for over 5 years (vanilla-coconut) and the handmade soaps are delightful. TIP-when they ask if you want to wash your hands, DO IT! I didn’t do it the first time I walked in, I thought it was maybe, weird? The second time around I did and got to see how to use the products and left with baby bottom, soft hands.

People Watching: There are a ton of outdoor café’s in NYC perfect for people watching, but I love grabbing a cappuccino in the lounge of the Mercer Hotel. So many beautiful people in one spot. It’s a great place to grab a drink and dinner too.

Gourmet Superstore: Eataly in the Flatiron District of NYC, it a feast for the eyes and stomach. Imagine a HUGE Italian outdoor farmers market, but indoors! There are restaurants (including a pizza stop), gourmet grocery, gelato, fresh cheese, meats, pastas and more. You must, I repeat, must go here if you are in the city.

Guacamole: Dos Caminos, just go!

A Quick Bite: I love popping into Olives. Strong, hot coffee and great salads, amazing little sandwiches and just a great place to pop into get a bite.

Thanks so much to Brookelyn Photography for shooting this for us! xo!
