On the day of the Royal Wedding, I did indeed get up at 5am here in the US to watch the proceedings. I also had to find a way to celebrate when the hours were more sociable! I debated hanging some bunting in the apartment and making cucumber sandwiches but instead decided on doing a few nice things in Manhattan instead. (I am so in need of an afternoon tea fix when I return to the UK for a break this summer!)
So, I had lunch at Cafe Gitane in The Jane Hotel – their crunchy avocado bread is highly recommended and you can see some additional pictures taken by my fabulous dining companion here. I then walked through the West Village for some window shopping, past the Diptyque boutique for some sensory delights and then on to The Magnolia Bakery to pick up some cupcakes for a thoroughly British tea…
I am in love with my outfit in this post. I have so many black dresses but the neckline on this dress from ASOS is one of my favourites. I’m wearing: Dress from ASOS. Belt from ASOS. (I couldn’t find the exact one but I found a very similar one here. Shoes from Dorothy Perkins as before.
