NY: Day 1
Two things I realized after my flight bound to New York: 1) Shawls are necessary for plane rides. Not only do they make a great fashion statement and elevates the now norm of wearing PJs or sweatpants to the airport, but they serve as the perfect blanket as well. 2) These shoes are so comfortable! If you’re looking for a pair of boots with a chunky heel to travel in, take note of these. I even walked all day in these during a city tour on Saturday!
Going back to this shawl, this is a perfect example of how you should never underestimate the power of the thrift store. I went to Marshalls and found a lovely red shawl for $28. Just as I was about to purchase it, something told me to wait until SalVal. A few hours later and I found one almost similar to it for $3!
What an interesting night! We left my uncle’s apartment around 7pm Thursday night to watch the annual Halloween Parade. Immediately after stepping out the door people filled the night’s streets dressed in an array of different characters, animals, objects, and other random amuses. We spent the next half hour fighting the crowds trying to get a good view of the procession. Our stomachs eventually gave in and we gave up. We headed to The Hummus and Pita Co. for dinner where- surprise!- a blocked off area and a great view of the parade provided us a fun dinner-and-a-show. Day one, down!
