New York, I love you. 

Five days in NYC was the perfect little getaway but at the same time I feel like I could pack up and move there in an instant.

The Thursday evening we got into Brooklyn was warm and calm. After unloading our luggage at our lovely little Air BnB we excitedly walked through Fort Greene's brownstone lined streets to Habana Outpost - an outdoor bar/restaurant, and ate Cuban(ish) food while eavesdropping on the conversations around us and soaking it all in. 

On our first full day in the city we took the subway and the lady sitting beside Jules was wearing those Margiela carpet boots. Coupled with a Lake Bell (excited to see In a World this week) sighting outside of Roman's on the way back to the apartment the night before I took this as a positive omen. So many exciting things happening, so much to see and do (plus so many good outfits).

  • woke up early to see the beautiful James Turrell show at the Guggenheim - incredible
  • took the subway over to Baohaus for decent little baos but confusing/confused service
  • walked around the corner for cereal milk ice cream at the Milk Bar and met up with our lovely pal Tyra
  • took the subway over to the west side for a little walk on the High Line
  • stopped in an Irish pub for some strawberry daiquiris/wifi
  • wandered the lobby of the Ace Hotel & browsed through pretty things at Opening Ceremony
  • Madison Square Park's Shake Shack for dinner (American portion sizes, massive as always)
  • finished the evening off in Manhattan watching the lights from Tyra's rooftop deck
  • took the L train to Williamsburg
  • met up with Jules' friend Tony for drinks at High Horse 
  • late night snacks at Cerveceria Havemeyer
  • more drinks The Knitting Factory and dancing plus even more drinks with friends at The Whiskey Bar
  • a day walking around the MoMA
  • a Cecilia Dean sighting (!) near Penn Station
  • a train ride to Dunellen, New Jersey to see my cousin and her family

Later days, NYC. Hopefully I'll see you again soon.
