Perry Street

perry half half

Having now been in NYC for at least a year, my husband and I are finally starting to feel at home.  I could spend every weekend in Soho while my other half loves exploring the culinary gems of the East Village. We’ve always found common ground in the West Village, with it’s quaint streets and boutiques, paired with amazing nibbles and unique cafes.  With my husband off to Germany for Oktoberfest, we decided to try a much anticipated Aussie owned cafe in the village prior to his trip.  We were immediately transported back to our Saturday morning “brekkies” in Sydney.  The food, people and vibe were beyond.  To cap off the morning: a walk down Perry Street (my maiden name) 🙂

Village Blues

One of my favorite weekend brunch spots is West Village.  The streets are so lovely and quaint and it’s the closest to a Sydney style breakfast we’ve found thus far.  Perfectly poached eggs and lattes at Cafe Minerva were followed by couples retail therapy at Rag & Bone. (Love it when the hubby is on-board for this!).

I also quickly found that my denim on denim mindset was shared by others.  Within the space of 10 minutes, I literally spotted 3 different women sporting this Marc by Marc Jacobs chambray dress – this might have had something to do with the fact that I was on the same block as the store. I’m always up for any version of a denim remix, especially when I found out Frank & Eileen did chambray button downs. For an off duty casual shirt, these guys are the best hands down.
