The 44-year-old actress wore a long-sleeve turquoise top along with purple trousers while making a pit stop at a coffee shop in the SoHo area.
She completed her look with black flats and carried a small umbrella in the rain.
Katie had her dark hair straight down below her shoulders and accessorized with sunglasses, necklace and ring.
She also carried a big brown leather purse while walking on the slick streets.

Katie has 17-year-old daughter Suri with her ex-husband Tom Cruise, 61.
Tom and Katie got married in November 2006 and she filed for divorce in June 2012.
It was the first divorce for Katie and the third for Tom.
Katie has custody of Suri, who has been estranged from her father since 2013, one year after he and Katie divorced.
An insider told DailyMail.com in March that Tom does ‘not have a part in [Suri’s] life’ – after it was previously revealed that the pair have not seen each other in years.
However, the source noted that Tom will pay her college tuition costs, per his ultra-secret divorce agreement with his actress ex.
According to their divorce documents, Tom agreed to pay Katie $400,000 a year until Suri turned 18 years old.

The documents also state that Tom agreed to pay all of Suri’s expenses, including ‘medical, dental, insurance, education, college and other extracurricular costs.’
‘Tom has always maintained his responsibilities when it comes to financial obligations to Katie and Suri,’ the source told DailyMail.com.
The Mission Impossible franchise star, however, has not maintained a presence in Suri’s life.
According to another insider, Katie has not let Tom’s decision to not see Suri affect her upbringing.
‘Being raised by a single mom in New York has made Suri who she is. Katie has always put Suri first and Suri loves her mom more than anything,’ the source tells DailyMail.com.
‘She is a smart girl, and she is turning into a very intelligent mature woman. She has a very close group of loyal friends, and she knows exactly where she comes from.’
Last year, a trailer for a rom-com starring and directed by Katie, Alone Together, featured Suri singing Blue Moon on the soundtrack, as her mother praised her daughter as ‘the best’.
Katie spoke to Yahoo Entertainment about her decision to have Suri sing the two songs, telling the outlet, ‘I always want the highest level of talent.’
‘So I asked her. She’s very, very talented. She said she would do it and she recorded it, and I let her do her thing,’ Katie gushed.
Katie also said that she had hired Suri to sing in another film she directed called Rare Objects that was released earlier this year.
