These pictures were taken on a gorgeous Sunday in early May when we celebrated Alex’s birthday.  I met up with AlexHope, and Alex’s friend Kristine in Madison Square Garden, where we took advantage of the opening of Mad Square Eats!  Basically, a bunch of restaurants set up food stands in a little area right off the park, and there’s everything from Red Hook Lobster to Asia Dog (one of my personal favorites as far as street food!).  It really was a gorgeous day weather-wise, which was perfect for dining and drinking wine al fresco.

I kept it really casual outfit-wise because I’d met up with some friends earlier for brunch and had to get ready in a hurry!  The nice weather gave me the opportunity to wear this sweater I finished a few months ago (more details to come in an “On Nnenna’s Needles” post on Wednesday!).  Also, doesn’t Alex look just fabulous above?  I totally teased her for looking all posh and chic, while I was all flustered from running around earlier that day! ;)

Speaking of birthdays, today is my best friend Erica’s birthday!  I spent a good chunk of the weekend working on a special present for her, but I won’t reveal any more because I know she sometimes reads this :) I can’t wait to see her and my family back home in CA in a little under a week!

    You’re both looking equally fabulous; I love your two very different looks here :) Loving your pink jacket in particular!

    HahahahahaI love the gif :) I’m totally going to do burst shots of you from now on so you can make more of those. Bonus points for twirls :)

    I demand you wear this sweater more.

    The end.

      Haha, yes- I like to throw in a GIF every once in a while! Lol, and since I made you twirl, I suppose I have to twirl for you too! :)

      I should wear this sweater more often, but the weather has to be just right- warm, since the sweater is sleeveless, but not so warm that I overheat in it!

    The sweater is amazing! Inspires me to get to work finishing the sleeves of that darn sweater I’m currently working on. (Beatnik–you should check it out. Gorgeous.)
