Once a month, the PurseBlog ladies hit the NYC streets for some seriously good eats. This month, we hit up a pretty perfect breakfast spot in the East Village. Of course, beautiful new handbags are never far from our grasp, and we were excited to have bags from Céline's Summer 2017 collection as our brunch dates.
In a very New York twist of fate, our original spot was closed when we arrived for our 10:30am breakfast meeting, despite the restaurant's stated hours. Us NYC gals know how to change our plans at the drop of a hat, though, and with a quick glance at our phones, we decided to tag along with Céline to Tarallucci E Vino.
Tarallucci e Vino is a casual Italian eatery located in NYC's East Village. It truly is the perfect spot for a breakfast meeting, and we were able to enjoy our breakfast outside on a gorgeous, sunny spring day. A casual eatery like Tarallucci e Vino is perfect for an extended date, and we enjoyed the relaxed, no-rush atmosphere. I can see myself eating lunch there al fresco this summer with my besties, or even swinging by alone to relax inside with a (seriously delicious) almond milk latte.

The Bagdown: Want the lowdown on these bags? I fell in love with the mini clasp bag in black and could totally see myself wearing this so many ways! I love how simple it is, yet elegant at the same time, and it can definitely be dressed up or dressed down. (Note: the strap on this bag is not adjustable.) The Mini Clasp Bag contains interior card slots, making it easy to skip a wallet and save space when carrying this little lady.
