The Best High Tea in NYC: Eloise Tea at the Plaza

Last week’s trip to NYC was made even more memorable with the best high tea in NYC at Palm Court at The Plaza with two LA girlfriends. We chose the ‘Eloise’ service, naturally, and spent most of our time snapping shots of this adorable spread. This was such a decadent, girly treat and the perfect way to relax and catch up.

It was so chilly/rainy/slushy each day of my visit that I lived in this perfect puffer coat from Express.  I actually enjoyed the freezing weather in NYC, somehow it made it feel more like the holidays than it does in LA even though I’ve lived in California my entire life and have never really had these chilly temps.  It was fun to wear coats, hats and gloves for a change!

I changed up my boots  and hats but this cozy, fitted puffer was on every single time I stepped outside.  It’s currently 50% off online so if you’re looking for a great coat check it out! Those Clarks boots also got a lot of wear on this trip – they were super comfy and a nice alternative to ‘all black everything’…
