The Perfect Day for Pho

Last week Alex and I met up for pho at this small restaurant in my neighborhood, the East Village.  Even though the light was quickly fading, we managed to snap some pictures at a pretty church/little park in the area.

Also, Happy Halloween everyone! Over the weekend, I participated in some Halloween festivities with my friends.  I ended up recycling a costume from years past since I didn’t have time to make anything new.  I had a great time goofing around with my friends and it’s always fun to see what everyone dresses up as!

Tell me: What are you dressing up as this year?
Also, if you want to hear me ramble on a bit, go check out my vlog from last week =)

  • You look lovely! Great coat!

  • love the purse pic!! i need to give pho another chance. the last time i had it, i could barely take in more than a few spoonfuls. next time, i’m ordering no meat.

  • Happy Halloween my dear!

  • I’m dressing up as Regan from the Exorcist for a party this coming week (I was out of town this Saturday so no fun Halloween stuff for me…).
