 I told you the other day that I didn't get any proper outfit photos until the last day I was in New York, and I finally have them to show you! Since it was me and the two Annie's together on the last day, we figured we'd just take all the shots with Little Ocean Annie's fancy-schmance camera. That was one bonus of the trip, getting to see everybody's cameras and lenses. It definitely proved to me that I need to invest in a 50mm F/1.8 lens because holy shmoly, the results are bea....utiful!

We went to Central Park to get these photos, and unfortunately my flight left so soon after that I had to carry my luggage with me. Lucky me, Time Enough For Drums Annie was kind enough to hold one of my bags and wear my hat–thanks for not stealing it even though I know you thought about it! I thought Annie (T.E.F.D.) and I looked like little Orla Kiely girls with our cute vintage inspired pieces and amazing opaque tights from Zara. Preggers Annie was darling too, she just can't go for the short dresses right now. She's on a very limited wardrobe! 

It was tough to say goodbye to them after such a fun weekend. We spent our final moments sitting on the steps of the Met while they soaked up a Gossip Girl moment that I had no idea about–I've never really watched the show. Annie got an organic cupcake from a nearby stand as my tummy rumbled and begged for real food that wasn't a hot dog. I eventually got that real food at the airport where I had to order on a screen–if you can call a burger and fries real food. It was strange. I placed my ordered and a ticket printed out. A lady then called my number and gave me my food, and then I went to the cashier line to pay. Little Rock has self checkout lanes at the grocery stores, but I had never ordered food on a touch screen before–I'll read this in ten years and be like, "oh my gosh, I'm so old" because it'll be the common thing!

The taxi ride to the airport was nice. I didn't mind that it was long and would eventually cost me $35–even though that was like two more pairs of tights I could've bought at Zara–rather I enjoyed staring at the city. I had no crazy agenda and no friends in the back seat with me, and so I just looked out the window with my iPod playing loud and my eyes as wide as my brothers the first day he got glasses–he said, "Mom" .....  "the clouds are following us" as if he had just seen the sky for the first time.

Farewell, New York.

Your luggage bag is to die for!!! I have never seen a carry on that is so stylish and I'm pretty sure I never will.

It looks like you girls are having so much fun and each of you look so fantastic. I really like the photo of you and annie (time enough for drums) where she has a weird wind pregnancy.
