Yesterday Liza and I left the apartment at the same time to go to work. She was off to her career-job and I was headed to Brooklyn for my job-job, but I was just happy to be going SOMEWHERE. We were chatting and as I was blabbing away, I noticed she was answering all my questions with "Uh huh..yeah." And then I looked over to see her typing away on her Blackberry! Figures. Everyone has a Blackberry. Except me. I told myself I wouldn't get one until 1. I could afford it. 2. I truly needed it. There are times when I'm away from my computer for more than an hour that I start to get really antsy about not being able to check my email, but I'm not at the can't-live-without-it point yet.
And how cute is Liza?! I ran ahead of her so I could catch her in the moment. She didn't realize what was happening until after I snapped the pic—too late! And in case anyone's wondering, she's wearing:
Jacket: Marc by Marc Jacobs
Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs
Belt: From our mom's closet
Ankle booties: Miu Miu (Sad you can't see them)
And then I popped into Starbucks and we parted ways. I know I need to kick my caffeine habit, but I allow myself to have it every time I'm going to work in the morning because it makes me so gosh darn happy. Sadly though, I've recently had to ditch my beloved lattes for just regular coffee because it's half the price. Sad, indeed.
And when I hopped onto the subway, I saw this cool cat:
That is some subway SWAGGER, y'all! Lean with it, rock with it. Too bad that chick had to interrupt the performance just as I was getting into it. And don't you love how no one else seems to be phased by this? Yup, just a typical morning in NYC!
Tell me: What are your mornings usually like? Do you ever run into any interesting characters? Does the coffee/bagel/muffin guy know you by name?
