On Sunday the 30-year-old reality darling and her man, Zac Clark, 36, – who won her heart on the hit show’s finale last week – leaned into their life as New York City residents as they bopped around the city.
Trading in her Laguna Beach lifestyle for the bustling city, Tayshia was seen doing some post-holiday shopping with her Jersey-born beau as the pair hit up Zara.

Rocking their best east coast street style, Adams showed out in jeans and a pair of black heeled boots as she strutted through the city.
She bundled up in a fur trimmed leather jacket and carried a Christian Dior saddle bag as they strolled with their purchases in hand.
Clark – who is a shameless sneakerhead as revealed by Adams earlier this week – wore jeans, a white T-shirt, and a brown flannel-style overlayer.
He rocked green accented Nike high tops and a matching green baseball cap for a splash of color.

Proving his undying chivalry to his wife-to-be Clark was seen lending Tayshia his black puffy jacket as they both strolled in masks.
After it was revealed on last week’s finale that Clark stole her heart, the pair were finally allowed to go public.
Adams, who got the coveted title of Bachelorette in a mid-season transition (after Clare Crawley bailed early on account of finding love with Dale Moss) seems to have found her fairytale ending with the addiction specialist.

The pair celebrated Christmas on the west coast with her family as she gushed, ‘MY HEART IS SO FULL,’ on account of adding a fiance to the mix.
Hopping east to visit Zac’s family in New Jersey, the pair made the journey after their shopping trip as Tayshia posted some selfies on Instagram.
Since the actual hometown date portion of the show was thwarted due to pandemic-related safety precautions, Adams looked excited to get the full Jersey treatment this time around.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter last week about their relationship post-television, the couple discussed some quarantine-related challenges after filming.

With the the pair on opposite coasts, they had to keep the spark alive through FaceTime, with a few visits here and there, on account of the pandemic.
‘A long-distance relationship is hard, even without COVID. So we definitely did well in the last four months as a couple; we got to learn each other. But, at the same time, we had the struggles a normal relationship has, with people who are long distance or just getting to know each other.’
Revealing on an episode of the Bachelor Happy Hour podcast, Adams said, ‘I’m going to be bicoastal. I’m going to keep my place here [in California], but yeah, we’re moving in together!’
Family life: Very close with her family, Adams was overjoyed to ring in Christmas in Laguna Beach surrounded by her fiance and closest kin
Touching on her and Zac’s love during the season she said:
‘There were multiple moments where I saw myself envisioning a life with him. I guess it really solidified when my family was involved, just because I’m really close with my family.’
Clark and Adams made an immediate connection a few episodes into the franchise and related to each other on a deeper level as both had been married previously.
After Zac revealed his troubling history with addiction and broke down the walls he had up Tayshia and him fell for each other.
Their strong bond culminated in Adams sending the second suitor home leading up to the proposal, as she knew it was only Zac she wanted to accept a proposal from.
