{outfit post} East Village afternoon...

I love a relaxing, lay in bed most of the day Sunday as much as the next girl, but there's something to be said for staying in on a Saturday night, sleeping a lot, and having all the energy (and appetite) you could need to bop around town all day on Sunday.

Yesterday was one such day. I managed to wake up, shower and curl my (newly cut - finally) hair - all before noon. Tully and I then cruised via subway down to the East Village to meet Meghan at one of her favorite neighborhood brunch spots, 7A Cafe. The wait for a table was just long enough to hop across the street to Sidewalk Cafe for a bloody mary (me) and mimosas (them) before getting seated. Over coffee, french toast, eggs and a second round of cocktails we caught up, gossiped and just generally reveled in the bustling but relaxed pace of the early afternoon crowd.


Vintage fur; Zara blouse; Aritzia neon bralette; 7 For All Mankind 'Josefina' jeans; Steve Madden flats (super old); Kooba bag (c/o); Ray Ban aviators.

After brunch, Meghan and I parted ways with Tully and walked over to The Smile to meet Christine, Morgan, Jessie and Eliot for more snacking, cocktailing and catching up.

I'm easing into the neon trend by sporting just a peek under this sheer-ish blouse from Zara.

Now, you may totally disagree with me here, but I am so ready for pointy-toe flats to make a comeback. Whether or not it happens, I'm rocking 'em out. I've had these suede Steve Madden ones for no less than six years. They're easy, ladylike, and make my boyfriend jeans look a little more sophisticated, no?

Bracelets are vintage and Amanda Pearl; Michael Kors watch; rings are Tiffany & Co., vintage and c/o Accessorize.

It was another what has become rather typical winter day this time around in New York. Mild, breezy and sunny. There's still a crisp in the air that lets you know spring hasn't quite arrived, but it was absolutely bare ankle appropriate. The East Village is quite the cool part of town, and let me tell ya - my little outfit here was not so right for Thompkins Square Park. However, someone was amused by our little photo shoot and soon enough...

I was in love. These little foofs were so sweet and affectionate - and the dogs' owner practically thrust their leash into my hand. He was gone almost as quickly as he appeared, but it made for some cute photos, eh?

 Bow wow!
