Right now, I’m down the shore working on various wedding crafts. (Which I really enjoy. It’s a little less intense than my real job. ;)) But these photos were taken on Friday when Mitch and I headed to the Upper West Side in Manhattan after work.

Our good friend, Jess, flew in from Florida on Friday for a wedding, so we all met up at Dive Bar, one of our old favorites, on 96th and Amsterdam. Jess lived in NYC for a long time–we all taught together in the Bronx–and she’s absolutely hilarious. She’s such a New Yorker. I’m really not sure how she hasn’t been kicked out of Florida yet. Hehe. Love ya, Jess! ;)

Lately, our old teaching crew (a mix of Teach for America and New York City Teaching Fellows kids) from the Bronx has been getting together pretty often again. It’s been wonderful. When everyone left the school a couple of years ago, it became a bit more difficult to get together on a regular basis. It had been easier when we would all just hop on the subway at 3 p.m. and go out on the Upper East Side for hours and hours on Friday nights. Ah, the memories. ;) But lately we’ve been brought together for bachelor and bachelorette parties, bridal and baby showers, and weddings. It’s been so nice. I feel like I’m 22 again. (Cue the Taylor Swift song.)

Back to fashion, though. I’m going to wear a skirt a some point next week. Someone hold me to this. Okaythanksbye. :)
