hallelujah. friday at last. after office breakfast was such a hit last week, i'd planned on making mexican breakfast this morning; but we are having a going-away party this evening, catered with spanish food, so i decided to keep it simple and stopped off instead at bergen bagels on the way to work and grabbed a baker's dozen. (brooklynites: best bagels in the city. really.) i sliced up some red onion and cherry tomatoes (which i'd been stashing to make a pico de gallo) and picked up some lox, and voila! perfect friday breakfast.
taking all my outfit photos inside allows me the luxury of showing the outfit under the coat, but with winter winding down (fingers crossed) i thought i'd post one with the overcoat on.
i scored this vintage london fog trench at the brooklyn flea over the winter, and it has since sprung a couple of giant holes, one in each pocket; i wear it too often to take the time to sew them up, so i have to remind myself not to put any valuables in my pockets while wearing it. i'm kind of dumb that way.
trench coat: vintage, flea market
pants: on SUPER CRAZY j crew sale (check it out, y'all.)
socks: j crew outlet
shoes: c/o seychelles
i'm lucky to work in an office where i can basically wear whatever i want, but this shirt always makes me feel like such a business woman. it's got a little peter pan collar and i pretty much just want to wear it all the time. one of my favorite thrifted finds in a while.
all right! i'm going to get some work done and get ready for my night of tapas-scarfing and sam-snuggling.
placecard debate update: i'm thinking about the sugar cookie idea again. i keep hearing no one ever takes their favors home, and this seems like a good solution.
have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
