“The Met plays host to countless fashion events, it’s almost sacred. So naturally, it’s the place I go for a hit of inspiration, and because it’s the Met, I went for a bit more glamour. A full-length floral dress and bold Bulgari sunglasses add that drama to this uptown look.” — Blair Eadie
“There’s so much history on these steps. It’s part of what makes New York City so special. And a swish of a dress never hurts.” — Blair Eadie
“After the Met, Central Park is my next go-to stop. The Bow Bridge in Central Park is absolutely beautiful and has scenic appeal. The park is perfect for a daytime stroll with my favorite sunnies.” — Blair Eadie
“You do a lot of walking in the city, but that's what makes it inherently New York. The Bulgari Serpenti bag was just the right size and functional enough to carry all my essentials, like my sunglasses, and still give me the hands-free option to explore and snap.” — Blair Eadie
“I wanted to spend my second day in something more comfortable and practical because I knew catching a cab or the subway was not on the agenda—if you want to look like a local, always walk. So I went with Mary Jane flats, not heels, and brought my favorite trench. Grand Central Station is a great place to people-watch with all of the travelers coming and going. It’s also so centrally located and timeless in its beauty. I love passing through whenever I can.” — Blair Eadie
“These gemstone-embellished rich tortoiseshell sunglasses offer just a touch of glamour, perfect for the walk over for a coffee in the park or for an early evening cocktail at the beautiful Campbell Apartment bar.” — Blair Eadie
“Walking down the streets of New York never gets old, and I try to do this as much as I can. I left my sunglasses on for the quick walk from Grand Central Station to Bryant Park. They’re the one accessory that can take an outfit to the next level and make you feel put together instantly.” — Blair Eadie
“Bryant Park is beautiful, especially in the spring and summer when the greenery is lush and vibrant. I love going there and grabbing a cup of coffee, it’s the perfect place to unwind.” — Blair Eadie
