If you’re based in New York or visiting over the holidays, I highly recommend visiting the Standard Hotel NYC near the Highline for a real Christmas wonderland experience. This colorful Christmas wonderland is right at the entrance of the hotel and is free and open to the public. I went early on a weekday and had a blast taking photos – every corner I turned was Instagram worthy and I just couldn’t get enough of the colorful trees and magical decorations. They even have heat lamps, so even though it’s outside, it’s not cold at all. I’m not sure how long the decorations will be up for, but definitely go check it out if you’re in the NYC over Christmas!
For my outfit, I wanted to wear something that was just as whimsical as this spot, but not super colorful that I would blend in with the decorations. So I went with a starry skirt from Chicwish that is one of my favorites of all time. It has great twirling action and the sheer layer on top gives the photos amazing movement and a magical quality. For the rest of my outfit, I went with Winter staples including a gray cashmere sweater, rust colored coat, and rust colored suede boots, all from H&M. I further dressed up the outfit with a gold and blue handbag and layered gold star necklaces. This outfit would be very fitting for Christmas Eve with the starry night theme and blue and gold colors.
