Closet Confection: Saturday in the Park

{Miss Sixty Jacket, H&M Sweater, Forever 21 Collar, Zara Skirt (similar), c/o Wolford Merino Tights, Fendi Boots (lusting over these, and more wallet-friendly option here)}

I woke up early on Saturday morning to grab breakfast on-the-go before trekking to the Greenwich Village Goodwill to try and snag a few bargains during their weekly window sale.  I was hoping to take home a gorgeous Burberry scarf (new with tags!) that I’d spotted a few days before for just $35, but another prudent shopper snatched it up before I had the chance.  Oh well, all’s fair in love and bargains! In any case, I was able to walk away with a pair of mint-condition Stuart Weizman boots as well as a patent leather Miu Miu belt that still had the tags on it. Not too shabby, right?

Before heading home, I swung by Washington Square Park to snap a few pics with my camera and tripod.  I’ve visited this park for years, but I’d never been there this early in the morning and had no idea I’d be in for such a treat!  The park was lightly abuzz with joggers and young families taking their morning stroll, and I even spotted a bride and groom snapping wedding photos on the lawn.  The best part had to be the squirrels – I never knew they could be so friendly.  They would scurry on up to you and eat right out of your hands if you let them. One even tried to climb in my purse!  I also spent at least 10 minutes watching the “pigeon whisperer”. I’m not sure what sort of magic skills this man possessed, but he was able to beckon the birds to him at will just by calling them. I’ve seen people do this with bird seeds and breadcrumbs but never with just the sound of their voice.  It was pretty cool to watch.

Fall in NYC has been so picture perfect and ideal lately, and I’ve been soaking up every minute of it.  Thanks for stopping  by and sharing it with me!

    I can only imagine how crisp the air was. I’m also a sucker for any pictures of cute furry creatures.

      Yes, it was beautiful. Squirrels usually freak me out, but this one was pretty cute.
