Soho Shopping

One of my favorite parts of the trip was, you guessed it... the shopping! On our last day in NYC, a couple of my friends and I hopped on the Subway and headed to Soho, a neighborhood in lower Manhattan.  Soho is known for great trendy shopping and the area encompasses many of the stores on my list to visit while in New York as well as local boutiques, street vendors, and so much more. 


We popped into a few different stores that do not have locations back in Minnesota such as Topshop, Brandy Melville, Zara, and others. Aside from these stores, the street vendors had a variety of accessories for sale at extremely affordable and haggle-friendly prices; in fact, each one of us ended up picking up a different colored plain baseball cap for only $6 each!

Aside from the shopping, everyone wandering the Soho streets was dressed a bit different than where we were staying in Midtown. Stylish shoppers sported a variety of different trends and looks effortlessly, which created a cool environment and overall vibe to the area. The old, cast-iron architecture of the buildings in Soho is also definitely worth a mention. We even spotted (and talked to) a model easily recognizable from the 2016 H&M and Free People advertisements! I am already dying to go back.
