Weekend in New York

So far the summer has been really fun but really busy! The result is that I have so many pictures of what I've been doing this summer that I haven't shared yet. I would promise to try and rectify that situation this week, but I'm leaving on Thursday for a reunion in Atlanta with all my college girlfriends. So I'll try to post what I can, but expect a backlog of pictures to trickle in slowly.

These photos are from my trip to NY with my best friend this past weekend. This is our 2nd day there. As you can see it started with a cheese and wine breakfast (only on vacation right?). Those were our leftovers from Eataly, and we didn't want them to go to waste! There are also a few shots of Stuyvesant Square, which was across the street from our hotel. After breakfast, we went to the High Line (we lucked out -- the 2nd phase opened days before we came), and we finished the day at the Brooklyn Flea where I got the most amazing thing ever! Scroll down to see.

I found an officer's coat from WWI! There was a vendor that had maybe a dozen or more uniform pieces from WWI and WWII. After thinking for a long time about whether it was worth the price, I went for it, and I'm really glad I did. The coat is so well made and sturdy. (I mean it's lasted almost 100 years.) It will be perfect in cool weather. Although it seems kind of weird to think about wearing something that could be in a museum, I feel like it is somewhat similar to wearing a very valuable vintage piece. I just know I have to take excellent care of it and respect its history.
