Friday in NYC with Delayed Missives

This weekend I had a chance to meet one of my favorite bloggers, Alex of Delayed Missives. Friday morning was truly cold and I freaked out and over dressed. By the time I got to New York it had warmed up a bit and I ditched the tights I was wearing, and then the blazer. I should have nixed the closed toed shoes as well, because my poor toes got so bruised.  
(Note, if you haven't worn a closed shoe since April, ease into it, rather than wearing them walking all day.)

Since I'd never been to Central Park before, that was our first stop. This bridge had a bunch of people on it, but once we both took out our big cameras, we managed to scare them all away.

I loved taking my wide angle lens to New York - if there was ever a city it was meant for, it would have to be New York.

We had lunch in Central Park, then went to the East Village for some vintage shopping and coffee. I went to Buffalo Exchange for the very first time - and did come home with a nice find. Since we were in Nnenna's neighborhood, she joined us for dinner.

Then we indulged in some yummy Italian pastries and cookies from Alex's favorite bakery.

I love how dogs are allowed to come in all the shops in New York, I was especially smitten with this cutie in Urban Outfitters.
How cute is this guy?How cute is this guy?

I loved seeing parts of the city I'd never been to, or simply hadn't seen in a very long time. Though I've been to New York before, it's easy to get stuck in the Touristy areas; it's so much better to have someone who knows the city to be the guide. More tomorrow!

  3. Great pictures! I especially love the shots on the bridge! Though I can't believe you've been to NYC before, but never Central Park! (I can't talk, since I've never been, but I assumed that was a mandatory stop on trips there).

  4. Damn, your city shots are freaking amazing! Must get a wide angle lens. Also, good memory with everything I was wearing. I definitely do not have recall like that!

  8. Aww, looks like so much fun! So nice to see a trio of bloggers I read having fun in the city :)

    That wide angle shot is fabulous. I feel like there's no hope of capturing New York's scape withOUT a wide angle. Ha!

  22. That's so fun that you got to visit NYC! I've always wanted to go there, but since I live on the west coast it would take a lot more prep and a lot more money than for those of you lucky people who live just a few states away :)

  23. Gorgeous photos on the bridge. I love New York too! The best way to explore non-touristy areas is to get lost :)

  27. Oh my goodness, you look so happy. That close up of your cute dimples made my heart go squish.

    So, that Gap blazer? I saw it online and I was intrigued. But I decided it wouldn't be cute in person. Boy was I wrong. It's super duper cute, even. Your whole look is totes adorbs. Yes, I said totes adorbs. I'm not proud of that. I blame your cute outfit.

    xo,

  41. You look ESPECIALLY stylish in this outfit! Maybe it's just new since it's more fall than summer, but I really, really like it. And now I'm a little more excited for fall because I have a feeling I'm going to feel the same way about all your fall outfits.

    Oh. And I'm so jealous that you just get to hang out with Nnenna all the time. SO JEALOUS.
