Meghan Markle’s best friend Jessica Mulroney was seen enjoying a cigarette in New York City on Tuesday, just one day after she made her debut as Good Morning America’s newest fashion contributor.
Despite the relatively mild fall weather, the 38-year-old Canadian stylist was bundled up in a leather jacket with a fur collar, which she paired with baggy olive green pants and lace-up booties.
Jessica was leaning against the building and scrolling through her cellphone during the smoke break.

She was so enamored with her phone that she let her cigarette burn down before flicking off the ash.
At one point, she was seen squatting on the sidewalk while balancing her cigarette and her cellphone in her hands.
Jessica’s hair was pulled half up to show off her gold hoop earrings, the same pair that she wore on GMA they day before.
Following her cigarette, the mother-of-three was seen checking out of her New York hotel with her bags in tow. The mom was likely returning home to Canada.
She kept her cellphone in her hand and looped the straps of her black handbag over the handle of her shiny green carry-on suitcase.

Fashion girl: Jessica was named Good Morning America’s new fashion contributor on Monday
This week Good Morning America announced that Jessica, who attended the royal wedding and has styled Meghan for years, will come on the show periodically to ‘bring viewers the latest fashion trends and styles’.

She started the new gig on Monday morning with her debut segment on the show, gushing, ‘I’m so happy to be here!’
Jessica was introduced by Robin Roberts and came on to show how to create a six-piece capsule wardrobe.
‘We are fed so much information when it comes to fashion. What we’re supposed to buy, what’s trendy, what we’re supposed to get rid of,’ she said.
‘How do we figure out the key pieces we should have in our closet?
‘So that’s what a capsule collection is. It’s finding those six pieces that you can mix and match, you can do day to night, you actually wear. They don’t just hang in your closet.’
Several models come out, showing how to wear these six pieces different ways.
There was a pair of black pants, which were worn first with a red jacket and heels for a workday look, and second with a black turtleneck and duster coat for a more casual outfit.

The duster coat was then draped over a floral dress for a date night.
She suggested picking patterns that are subdued, so you’re more likely to rewear them — and then showed that same floral dress worn with a chunky sweater draped on top.
The sweater can also be worn with leather leggings for a sexy night out look, while those skintight leggings can be paired with a red blazer — like the one the first model wore.
Though being besties with Prince Harry’s new wife certainly isn’t hurting Jessica’s career, the mother-of-three also has the professional styling chops to back up her new gig.
While she served as an unofficial stylist for Meghan, she also styles Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s wife Sophie Gregoire-Trudeau.
She recently tagged along for part of Meghan’s royal tour with Harry, joining the royal couple in an ‘unofficial’ capacity — meaning they were believed to have covered their own expenses — during their time in Australia.
