Cassidy and I were so excited to return to our favorite hotel, The Ludlow, on the LES for our trip to NYFW. We had stayed in the Queen Terrace before, which features a patio, and we thought this would be the perfect time of year to truly soak it up, but it spent the better part of the long weekend soaked. Ba dum ch.
The problem with our sights on this unique experience (the terrace may be bigger than the room LOL). It was booked the first night we were going to be there! We were bummed, but decided what better time to splurge on the SkyBox, and then move rooms down to the terrace when it was available. The Ludlow was great about accommodating our resourceful request, and even moved our bags for us when it was ready. Not gonna lie, we were pretty proud of our ingenious idea!
We thoroughly enjoyed the views our first day/night/morning on the East Side. It honestly doesn’t get any better than a dreary day taking in the concrete jungle. After sleeping in later than planned, Cassidy ventured out to get us breakfast at the infamous Tompkins Square Bagels while I started getting ready. I was thrilled to enjoy a gluten free bagel with chocolate chip cookie dough cream cheese. I mean, honestly. I love New York.
We highly recommend The Ludlow, regardless of where you stay, but The Skybox and Terrace rooms are quite the treat. The Skybox also includes a tub with a view, as well as a small juliette balcony. The views just make my NYC loving heart beat a little faster. The service is amazing, the décor is unparalleled, the vintage bathrooms are luxurious, and as a guest at the hotel, you have exclusive access to the rooftop, which is like a quiet oasis vantage point of the hustle and bustle below. Cassidy and I love heading up there at night.
This A&F sweater is so soft and comes in several great colorways. I love a classic gray, just like I love a classic ivory. Seriously, what is wrong with me sometimes? I guess when you find something that works, it’s hard to branch out, no matter who you are! And I am most certainly a creature of comfort.
