Back and Better Than Ever...

So, I am back form New York refreshed and full.  Here is a little recap of my favorites for you...
Please pardon some of the blurry photos, but I am just learning to use my new camera, plus my mom took some of the photos of me...
DAY 1
 Shortly after we arrived in New York Friday, we went shopping in SOHO.  When I travel, I usually wear dresses or skirts...more comfy than pants for sitting on a plane and doing a lot of walking.  Just bought this dress from Target...cannot wait to wear it with sandals in the summer!
First thing we has to find my favorite food truck...Tribeca Taco Truck.  I had to have the amazing quesadillas with crema and some very hot salsa! mmmmmm...!!

My goal for the day was to find a new bag.  On the way to the airport, the straps on my green purse snapped...I guess that is what I get  for carrying EVERYTHING around with me.  So, I was on the hunt for something that I that could carry my wallet, makeup case, a book, water, snacks and my camera...

Then I stumbled upon this table with some amazing leather items.  Luscious Leather NYC...everything was so amazing...The wonderful lady that helped me hand makes everything.  Once I picked out a bag, she customized that strap for me.  She will even custom make a bag to your specifications.  She was so amazing and friendly, I could have stood there and talked to her all day.  

We were so exhausted after being on the move since 6AM, we just went to Carnegie Deli for dinner and made it an early night.  
Stay tuned for a recap of day 2...

Looks like you had so much fun! I love the dress...and I think it will be a perfect summer dress when the weather warms up!

But, as much as I love the outfit, it's definitely the quesadilla that wins as my favorite picture of the post...looks delicious :)

Look at you! You fit in perfectly to the city...although no one really "fits in" here necessarily since their are so many different styles on the streets, but I like that you are in black....good choice for a day of walking around. So cute your mom took photos of you, looks like you found some great stuff and ate yummy food. I'll have to try out tribeca tacos;)
Cant wait to hear about part 2!
