The girls and I had a fun holiday outing at The Westchester- the luxury mall in White Plains, NY, that is only a half hour drive from our home in CT. They got to enjoy breakfast with Santa, a dance party with Santa, and a private cookies and milk session with Santa and Mrs. Claus!
They were over the moon excited. The Westchester mall was decorated so festively with lots of lights and they looove all the holiday magic, so it was great to be able to run around indoors in the warm air without all our cold weather gear!
The Westchester recently had a major renovation, and I almost didn’t recognize parts of it- they’ve added so many high end stores- there are over 150 now, and they have a gourmet food court, not the typical greasy junk food you find in a mall. We ate a delicious lunch at Melt Shop!
Their favorite store was Justice, which I had heard of, but I thought of it as a tween store, little did I know this is going to be their go to shop for years to come. It’s a glittery girly store with all the cute and cozy accessories, and fun toys and gifts.
We also shopped at Janie and Jack, where I got their adorable matching outfits, abercrombie kids for some cozies, Pandora for some rose gold jewelry for me, and J.Crew for the dress I’m wearing!
I also found the most Instagrammable donut shop called Mad Donuts for a quick break, and some re-caffeination, cos this mama runs on coffee!
The loveliest local mom and photographer Paola Kaoud took these images. She’s such a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend her if you’re doing a collaboration, or family shoot. She was so patient and sweet with my girls!
