// final days — Allison’s visit, part two.
Here’s the thing about Allison & I–when we are traveling, we do two things. First of all, we pack literally everything we could possibly need whilst on an excursion. That includes an extra pair of shoes, an umbrella and/or rain jacket, a book, 2 large cameras, sunscreen, Advil, & sunglasses. In each of our bags. The second thing about us traveling is that after the first day, we are literally exhausted with the number of photos taken the previous day, coupled with our extra large and heavy bags, that we generally completely forget to take photos for the following days. We’ll take a few here-and-there; of savory breakfast bagels (here & here), coffee (here, here, and who are we kidding–probably a few other places), and early morning trips to Brooklyn.
Then, we will completely overlook Allison’s first time trying Vietnamese food, the strange man carrying the mysterious bag at 8 am, the crowded subways, walking over a mile one way to realize we were walking the wrong way all along, the long rides home, the fancy drinks at a prohibition-style bar, a fairly uneventful break from the walk on the steps of the Met, not even venturing towards the Statue of Liberty, walking over a mile for a fabric trade show that we couldn’t get into, my first time trying anything but pre-packaged ramen, and the rainy movie in the park.
But it’s probably for the best–because all of those things were just great for Allison & I. Traipsing NYC, eating one
sketchy hot dog from a cart international cuisine at a time.
And now, here’s what we were wearing–the orange shirt was purchased at the Brooklyn Flea, from Martine’s Dream // Allison’s fabulous jumper was found on sale at Scotch & Soda // black flowy top & flowery pink bralette from Anthropologie // the ever-worn Sam Edelman “Petty” booties // Allison’s earrings are from Baublebar
