Meet you at the Met

On Tuesday it snowed, so it became the very best day to go to the Metropolitan Museum!  I had wanted to go to this thing for a very long time since Art History has always been very interesting to me and so many of the pieces and artist's work I have studied I have never really seen in real life! (Seems like this was the week for seeing things in real life! People, cities, landmarks, subways, art, models, etc.) I was so happy that Nikka from Showgirl Godzilla was able to come out to meet us there! I love her blog and her style, but her story is so interesting! I have never met anyone like her!  Very sweet and grounded as well!  After the Met, she lead us to this cute little tea house where we had "High Tea" and got to know each other! That is TWO bloggers down, So many more to go! And although we all have blogging in common, we are all such cool individual women! I love this! I hope I will get to meet and SIT with more girls on Wednesday! (I am writing this post Tuesday night but have it scheduled to go out Wednesday night so that I am not bombarding my blog with everything all at once!)

Oh, and since it was so snowy and cold, I just wore jeans and a slouchy shirt.  I had my Opaque Teal Welovecolors.com tights on under my jeans and some new little shoes I got at beacons closet on Monday.  I guess I am sort of getting lazy and a bit worked over by the freezing cold!  I am not really sure how you New York girls do this!! I am so thankful for the "Car Culture" and mild weather of my home town! I never realized how much freedom I have all year due to almost never having to be outside! You just can't avoid the elements here.  Nope, you can't.

After Tea, my husband and I went to see "A View from the Bridge" a play featuring Liev Schreiber and Scarlett Johansson!  It was really really great! Such a cool experience! I loved every minute!  A very full and happy day!

COMMENT OF THE DAY:  Yes!! That is the one!  Good eye! I have to say though, getting back behind the wheel of my car felt pretty darn good! My legs did get a bit more shapely while in NY though! Better for the stems over there!

Will you be headed back in the fall? I am going to start saving and planning ahead of time this time around! All the girls should bring their hubbies/BFs so they can pal around! haha!

You literally had my version of a perfect day: morning trip to the Met, high tea with a friend, and catching a broadway show in the evening (although I probably would have gone with a musical, I'm dying to see Memphis).

I'm so envious! I hope you're having as much fun as I have in NYC.

I LOVE the Met - my family and I went to NYC for Christmas 2008 and I couldn't wait to go there. It's one of the best museums I've been in, bar none.

That play got a good review in the latest Vogue, I was curious what it was like! So jealous of your awesome trip but glad I can live vicariously through your posts :)

Jessica said...

So fun! I love tea rooms.

Love your shoes and top!

showgirl godzilla said...

Thank you for such a beautiful blog post, friend! You are the sweetest ever! I was honored to spend the day with you and your hubby- it was so so special to me. It should become a yearly tradition, I think! :)

merly k said...

i concur about the car driving.. feels so good to walk down the stairs of my apt, hop in my car and go where i need to. although stomping the streets of NYC was good for the stems.. ha

and of course you continue to wow with the outfits. how are you going to fit the new items in your suitcase?? i looked like a crazy hobo trying to squeese my overstuffed bags onto the plan. btw i'm emailing you back today, sorry i've been kind of wrapped up in wisco land! xxxxo

Ashley said...

I love love love your coat in the first picture! I've never commented here before, but I love your blog. You seem so sweet and it looks like you're having such an amazing trip!

Kyla said...

Those tights looks so cool with those shoes! I though it was all one piece at first.

junebabie said...

I LOVE the Met! it was so amazing. you didn't fall into anything, did you?? haha
(I hope you get that joke...)

and I really wanted to see that play, too!

I love the cool casual look. and the shoes are awesome.

Katie said...

So im loving that light blue knitted hat, especially in the snow! but what im really wondering is why isnt your hair all messed up from it in the second picture?!

I just got bloglovin finally and im following u!

Ellen said...

I love the Met! I'm actually more of a MoMA girl, which I suppose makes me less cool, but whateves. Love your knit hat...you look great, even in the snow! Is it ever a CHORE for you to put such great outfits together? It always looks effortless.
