Editor's Note: Today I am wearing two new purchases from New York. A theory linen wrap dress and Coach kitten heels.
Mother, Riley, and I have been making a yearly trip to New York since Riley was five. Riley turns 23 tomorrow! So many years of fun and frolic for Riley, Mother, and myself three generations taking New York on by storm! When we first starting going the two first stores on the list were FAO Schwarz and the Disney store. Now sadly both of those toy stores are closed. I guess tablets have taken over entertaining children now. Now the first store we hit is Bergdorf's followed by Chanel. We have grown up! It is a very special thing that the three generations have had this wonderful experiences for 18 years. Here are some pictures of our experiences for New York City 2016.
We started flying first class after I established Kay Genua Designs. It is hard to go to the back of the bus now!
Dinner the first night. It was beautiful and divine!
Shopping at Bergdorf's. I did buy this dress!
Lunch at Bergdorf's! We love the restaurant on the top floor!
On to Saks!
Dinner with my best friend Primi. I always get so excited when I get to see Beast!
Here I am sporting a new skirt that I bought at Bergdorf's! I felt so sassy!
Riley being Riley playing with an antique phone in the hallway of the Yale club.
Lunch at Cipriani in Grand Central. Always one of our favorites!
I try to take a picture with mother here every year!
Here we are in the new H&M which was beautiful done!
I pray Kay Genua Designs will continue to thrive for my working life so that I don't have to dress up in pink and yellow and have to hand out flyers on the street.
Having fun but sweating in the flee market on Sunday. I thought this poster was more than sassy!
Street shopping in Soho. So New York!
Beast came back from the country and joined us for dinner at Beauty & Essex on Sunday.
Here is a scene of the bar before we ate dinner. Such a fun restaurant!
Here we are at the secret door at the "Please Don't Tell Bar."
My drink was called the Kansas City Star it was very strong and made me see stars!
Here we are grabbing lunch at Cipriani one more time before we head to the airport. I am sporting a new dress from Bergdorf's from Carven that is going to be one of my new favorites! It was so girly! Riley is sporting a necklace that I owned for 20 years that I did not realize was missing. It has a new owner!
Riley and her friend Claudia. Claudia joined us for lunch. She is interning in New York this summer and she is from Fort Worth.
It was so much fun to see her!
Here we are about to take our limousines to the airport. Limousines and first class rides are right down my alley!
Love these quotes that I found this morning!
Last night we had shrimp and grits in first class when we were flying home. I did not take a picture so I thought I would take a picture of my beautiful elegance this morning. I love starting my morning like this!
I have been listening to Pandora--70's light rock and I am loving the walk down memory lane. I forgot how much I loved this song!!
