I was elated to spend a few days visiting Manhattan before a family wedding in the Catskill Mountains. I really wanted to do photos on Monday when I flew in, but that wasn't gonna happen. Combine the four hour drive home from a family visit in Florida with an early Monday at work and a late arrival in New York. I needed sleep, so I started with photos from today.
Packing for this trip was a bit rushed because of my weekend in FL, but also really fun. It was nice to have cooler weather to think about and jackets. I employed two different jackets while wandering around the city. I wore my new black motorcycle jacket today but didn't photograph it for some bizarre reason. Needing more sleep? Yeah, let's go with that. I did put on my blue peplum top, dark skinny jeans, grey scarf, and black ankle boots, which were pretty comfy despite not being totally broken in.
I had two missions for the day: see Seth Myers live and find the husband a replacement coat/shopping. My last trip to NYC, the husband found this great Italian wool spots coat at the Brooklyn Flea Market. I like to tease him that it's very hipster combined with his love for hats. That same coat was supposed to fly out with us, but it got left on a chair. We spent the morning visiting his favorite NYC hat store, checking thrift stores and second hand stores for a Brooklyn Flea replacement, and then finally hitting TJ Maxx and Marshalls where the husband struck coat gold.
Seth Myers was great, by the way, and my inner TV nerd was logging all the camera moves and cue card stuff, etc., etc. We also got a chance to stop by the New York Public Library, and I was kicking myself for not bringing a camera. That place is gorgeous, and it's filled with books. Double awesomeness.
