However, Sarah Jessica Parker's gorgeous little girls managed to make the day even brighter.
Outfits full of sunshine: Sarah Jessica Parker and her twins Marion and Tabitha took to the sunny New York streets on Friday
It was a case of too cute in the city, as the three-year-olds trotted alongside their mother.
Tabitha wore the very girlie ensemble of a pink lace floral dress with pink leggins, long sleeve top and a pink hair band.

Tabitha also wore ugg boots with blue and pink roses on them as did her twin Marion.
The blonder of the twins also wore a pink long-sleeved top under her dress like her sister, but that was where the pink ended for her.
Instead of the girly hue, Marion wore a similar cut dress that was yellow with large red strawberries on it over black tights.
Matchy, matchy: The twins started off wearing the same jacket but the actress could not get the girls to keep them on
The mother and daughters beamed as the sun shone down on them - even though, unlike the twins, the Sex And The City star dressed for a much colder day.
The 47-year-old went for a causal and a bit of a frumpy look, considering she often lands on the list of the world's best dressed women.
Sarah Jessica - who plays the always stylish Carrie in the groundbreaking HBO series - wore a grey tank with baggy grey sweatpants tucked into well worn sheep skin-lined boots.

But of course when you have two other little people to dress stylishly before you sometimes there is not time to make a fashion statement yourself.
The dedicated mother of three - she and husband Matthew Broderick have a 10-year-old son James - juggled hold her little girls' hands and holding their cute matching leather jackets.
With the sun warming up the winter streets the girls were of course quick to ditch the jackets.
