Happy Monday! How was your weekend? I had a fun one. If you don’t know, I’m a pretty big theater lover (musicals in particular) so on Saturday morning, I (with Natalie) attempted to get rush tickets for Sunday in the Park With George, a show I’ve loved since high school and is on Broadway for a limited run. Jake Gyllenhaal is also in it! Normally, when you’re rushing tickets for a show, you show up about two hours before the box office opens to pretty much guarantee you’ll get a ticket. (There’s a select number of discounted tickets available for the day-of performances.)
Y’all, the one thing that can get me out of bed early on a weekend: A good show.
But since Sunday is such a hot ticket, we got there really early — 6:30. Turns out, there are people who are even crazier than we are! There were 20 seats available, and we were 26 and 27 in line. AKA: It wasn’t happening. So we headed to a diner to grab breakfast before going to rush tickets for another show, War Paint, which I’ve also been wanting to see. It was excellent. Patti LuPone and Christine Ebersole play Helena Rubenstein and Elizabeth Arden, and the story’s all about their careers as cosmetics executives and their rivalry. Highly recommend if you’re in the city, it’s a new show and so incredible to see two legends live.
As for Sunday, I bit the bullet and bought slightly more expensive tickets for another night. Though I love the theater, but I can’t get up at 4 a.m. to sit in Times Square for six hours. I can’t.
I failed to bring any sort of California sunshine back with me from LA, as it’s been pretty chilly in NYC the past few days. The temperatures are supposed to bump up a bit and I’m so happy, as I’m beyond sick of wearing my thicker coats and ready to break out the Barbour again. I snapped these photos a few weeks ago on the day of a weirdly warm spell. This sweater, which I picked up for $5 (!!!) is beyond cozy, and I love how it goes with the plaid on the lining of the jacket.
Really, the whole outfit is just a “greatest hits” of my wardrobe. My favorite jacket. The best ballet flats. These jeans, which I’m still so obsessed with. And the sunglasses I wanted for literal years before finally finding them at Nordstrom Rack last year. Y’all, I’m into it.
