Playing with Neutrals

Madison Square Eats has returned which means outdoor lunch is always a must. 

If you're in NYC during the month of May (or just plain live here) - #MadSqEats brings much needed variety to the bleak food options we have around here. Not to say I don't love my Bread & Butter (I really do love them at times) but sometimes you just need a sangeria and sloppy tacos.

Whenever I head out to that wonderful oasis of food and dranks I tend to go as is. That means: no laptop, my purse (currently obsessed with this one from Ora Delphine), a light convertible jacket from Mo-Ka, and my Timex watch for keeping track of time.

Yes, I do still have my phone on me - but if I'm lunching with friends or solo I try to keep the hour to detox from social and relish in the moment. Hour of zen if you will.

This was too good I had to share. Me having a hangry moment pre-lunch #bloggerbloopers.

But let's get back to the Mo-Ka jacket. It's been on my person non-stop (insta-proof ova here) for its light-weight feel and is perfect for that in-between spring-to-summer season. You know the type - hazy misty mornings, humid lunches, and breezy night walks. Bonus points for all the extra pockets in all the right places. It might be there for aesthetic purposes, but I like to think they had bag lady syndrome sufferers in mind - i.e. me.
