I'm super excited to share this weeks city post. New York holds a very special place in my heart, as I grew up on Long Island... just a short train ride away from this amazing city. Julie and Lauren are living quite the stylish life (if I could shop in either of their closets I would in a heartbeat) and they're sharing it all on their fabulous blog, Born and Bread. I highly recommend you check it out. And now.. why these gals are loving NYC.
We were so excited when Lara from Simple Irresistible asked us to come by and share all the reasons why we love NYC. It is one of our favorite subjects, after all! With so much to share, so little time-- we hope this gives you a glimpse as to why we love life in the city that never sleeps.

Julie: I've lived in New York for 4 years.
Lauren: I've lived in New York for forever! Born and raised.
Julie: My favorite shopping spot is Otte NY in TriBeCa.
Lauren: My favorite shopping spot is Intermix and Lower East Side boutiques.
Julie and Lauren: One hidden gem in New York is—the Odeon’s ice cream cart—I can’t get enough!
Julie and Lauren: When I have visitors, three places I insist on taking them are dinner at a Mario Batali restaurant, a walk through Central Park, and cocktails near the High Line.
|We love the Waverly Inn-- especially that crazy Mac 'n Cheese!|
Julie and Lauren: If I have a free day in the city, you'll likely find me at SoulCycle and shopping in SoHo or Meat Packing.
Julie: One neighborhood I'd love to live in is the West Village because of the adorable tree-lined streets and great shopping and restaurants. A true neighborhood feel.
Lauren: One neighborhood I'd love to live in is Brooklyn- amazing spaces and views of the city!
|An amazing Tribeca loft. Hey- a girl can dream, right?!|
Lauren: My favorite season in the city is Fall because the weather is gorgeous and everyone is back in the city. Such a fun time to explore!
Julie and Lauren: If I could describe New York in three words they would be enigmatic, vibrant & fresh.
Julie: My favorite thing about NY is the endless opportunities.
Lauren: My favorite thing about NY is the amazing people on the streets- such personal style and different walks of life.
Julie: Although I love NY, if I could move to one other city tomorrow it would be LA! Hands down. Or Tokyo if I was feeling really adventurous!
Lauren: Although I love NY, if I could move to one other city tomorrow it would be possibly London! But it would be hard for me to ever leave NYC!
