Hello lovelies! I write this as I am currently cuddled up at The James Hotel NYC in the coziest white sheets, a gorgeous bedside view of the city, plus a personally delivered fruit plate beside me. I have to admit, I am certainly feeling a little spoiled this morning.

The James is a fabulous boutique hotel with gorgeous rooms and beautiful views starting from the glass elevator upon arrival, throughout each room, all the way up to their rooftop pool, bar and deck, and even their urban garden. The hotel’s prime location in SoHo allowed easy access to and from NYFW shows, and the rooftop parties were our first go to once the day was done.

Fashion week is dwindling down for New York and then its off to London. For me, this is my last day until we’re back at it again in February. Naturally, I am hanging out in my robe for as long as I can, ordering constant in-room dining, and giving my feet a break from the heels for at least a month. If only this beautiful relaxation at The James could last for more than a day, as we now quickly depart NYC and head back to Chicago to conquer new projects and adventures.
