After shopping around Madison Ave, I scooted over to Central Park to relax, people watch, and just rest my feet.
The morning started off pretty chilly and windy, but it was shaping up into a beyond perfect day. Look closely in the picture.... see the man performing Tai Chi?
Of course, I just had to sneak a peek at the Alice in Wonderland statue. I've been a huge Alice fan recently (mostly thanks to Phoebe in Wonderland).
Can't you just tell how absolutely perfect it was outside??? I could have sat there for hours and hours and hours......
But there was too much to do, and so little time!
Off to The Plaza I went! I had a reservation for afternoon tea in the Palm Court. I got there a smidge early so that I could explore the Eloise nook downstairs!
Official Eloise costumes.... Little V, think you can fit into a size 4t?
The whole place was beyond precious.
Tea was absolutely divine. I highly recommend for anyone visiting the city!!!
A cab ride into SoHo and I ended up at....
Kate Spade, obviously!
The store was so perfect. Totally Kate Spade. And the people working there were nice, friendly, and helpful (unlike the Lilly employees).
I did some more walking and shopping and eating and then took a very late (and long) train ride back to DC....
I really want to work and live in New York City after graduating. And this trip reaffirmed that. I love it so much. If you want to walk around with a tutu on your head humming Taylor Swift songs into a kazoo, you can do that in New York. If you want to just sit in a HUGE park and people watch, you can do that in New York. Go to museums, or parties, or bars, or restaurants, or plays, or musicals (or all of the above in the same day) you can do that in New York.
