The aftermath of snowstorm Jonas: slush, slush and more slush.  The upside to this is that the sun is shining and the air isn’t bitterly cold.  On a freezing morning off from work, I don’t want to muster up the energy to do anything that involves going outdoors unless I absolutely have to.  But on a day like yesterday, where the weather is mild and the sky is blue, I so enjoy venturing out to go to breakfast with a friend for some much needed girl-chat.  Cue Bluestone Lane, a gorgeous cafe on 5th Ave that is located directly across from the entrance to Central Park.  There are multiple locations in the city, but this one is particular special because its an old church (actually there still is the church next door) with stunning architecture, and in the Spring they’ve got outdoor seating that provides the best spot on 5th Ave to people watch.

Nothing is cozier on a Winter morning than adorable decor, freshly steamed lattes and delicious food.  My love affair with oatmeal this Winter has reached all-new-heights, and so I dove right for their almond milk porridge with blueberries, banana, cacao & coconut.  It was delicious and filling.


Lindsey opted for the Portobello Mushrooms on Balthazar toast with feta and pesto.  I went sweet, she went savory!

Afterwards, we couldn’t not walk through Central Park, especially since its the least slushy stretch of land that the city has to offer right now.

Well, maybe not this part.

The sky was so blue and bright, it was a really breathtaking contrast against the snow.

And because this little snowy path in the park was empty, we walked along and grabbed some outfit photos.  I adore this scarf I have from Zara, but its a few years old so unfortunately I cannot find it online! I linked similar scarves below if you’re interested in buying one just like this.

We brunched, we selfied.  We were as basic as could be, but that’s OK with me.
