Barbara Bush looked chic in a fur coat and a cozy sweater dress when she checked out for a weekend in a hotel in New York City on Friday.
The 38-year-old, pursuing a Masters degree at Harvard University, returned to her old stew for a visit after moving the Big Apple to Boston with her husband, screenwriter Craig Coyne, to attend graduate school.
The former first daughter saw the hotel leave with a backpack, a shoulder bag and hand luggage, which she rolled up behind her.

En route: Barbara, who looked stylish in a ribbed sweater dress and lanky boots, saw the hotel leave with a backpack, a shoulder bag, and hand luggage
Barbara was bundled in a black woolen coat with a fur collar that she wore over a brown ribbed sweater dress with a thick turtleneck. She finished the stylish winter look with a pair of black slouchy high boots.
The graduate student had pulled her dark hair back into a picky low ponytail and she looked fresh when she went out with her cell phone in her hand.
Barbara returned to school last fall to become a fellow at Harvard’s Center for Public Leadership – 15 years after graduating from Yale University in 2004 with a humanities degree.
It is unclear whether she was going back to Boston or spending the weekend with her twin sister, today host Jenna Bush Hager.
Big step: Barbara and her husband, screenwriter Craig Coyne, moved to Boston in the summer so she could go to Harvard University graduate school
Barbara’s non-profit, Global Health Corps, has its headquarters in New York City, and before she and Craig moved to Boston in the summer, she and her sister lived just four blocks apart.
In November she told People that she travels from Boston to her old home about every six weeks so she can see her sister and spend time with her cousins, Mila and Poppy, and baby cousin, Hal.
Barbara and Craig were married in October 2019 at a small ceremony held at the grounds of her family in Kennebunkport, Maine, thus her grandfather, former President George H.W. Bush could be present before he died.
The couple had a second, noisier wedding celebration at Prairie Chapel Ranch, the home of her parents in Texas.

All smiles: Barbara and Craig spent some quality time with her family – including her nieces and nephews – during the Christmas vacation in Texas
Craig, who had lived in Los Angeles for the last 15 years, moved to New York City the week they married.
She admitted that Boston “just didn’t seem in the cards” for them until she was admitted to graduate school.
“We’re still getting to know Boston,” she told People. “So it’s fun to explore and try new places, and we’re constantly taking walks to get to know our new neighborhood.”
The two celebrated their one-year marriage in October 2019 with a date evening at a Boston restaurant.
“It’s fun to experience a new adventure together in a city where neither of us has ever lived,” she said. “So we are looking for something new with our first year of marriage.”
