During my fall break I was quite busy, there was no down time like I thought there would be when my mother decided to come up here to New York from North Carolina for the fall break which was also the weekend after my birthday that previous Tuesday. She came bearing gifts from Lilly Pulitzer and Belk (in my latest birthday haul post and video).
When she got here we decided to go to New Haven, Connecticut to visit Yale where one of my siblings is looking at for college so that she could go back to the Yale Bookstore to get some things, to go to the apple store to get some cords we both needed, and to see the beautiful campus this time of year.
We stopped by Cracker Barrel for breakfast before our adventure.
Connecticut can be pretty, especially in the fall.
…. In New Haven
Picked up some items from the apple store.
Did a lot of browsing in the bookstore, there were some very helpful and friendly employees there.
Saw this in the Yale Bookstore and had to get, can't wait to read it.
I'm guessing this is one of the famous gates of Yale.
Had to get a bulldog :)
I absolutely love this men's Yale quarter zip!
The end of that journey
On Saturday, we decided we would go into New York City. I needed to visit a department store for my buying project so I chose one of my favorites in the city, Bloomingdale's. Before heading there we made sure to visit the Lilly Pulitzer store on Madison Avenue! When we left Lilly we walked across the street and popped into the Barbour store. From there, we told the taxi to take us to Bloomingdale's on Lexington Ave.
We arrived at Grand Central Station...
