Why is it always windy when I take pics??! This outfit is surprisingly deceptive. Since arriving here I've quickly had to master the art of layering. I think there's about 5 layers going on here... The trick is thin layers to avoid looking like a Michelin man, those thin thermal tops work best, Uniqlo have some good ones! And long gloves work a treat.
This is the second hat I bought from the mad Hermes sample sale. I actually haven't worn it before, but although I like the colour, I don't have much green to wear it with. Something to think about next time I go shopping.
The weeks are flying by here! Not long until New York fashion week! I'm excited, but not sure what to expect, the whole scenario is very different to being at Somerset House in London. I'm also going to head to the IFB conference at Milk Studios. I don't know any bloggers in the city yet, if you're going I hope to see some of you there!
Lately I've become obsessed with the peplum look, especially for Spring. all these tops, skirts and dresses were so popular in the SS12 collections and all look so pretty. I've seen quite a few items starting to crop up in the high street stores and online too, particularly H&M, ASOS and ShopBop. They definitely add a cute twist to an outfit.
This is my latest that I scored from H&M (polka dots too, bonus!!). As it was freezing, I paired it with some slim jeans (and my Cambridge Satchel) but i'm desperate to try it with my black velvet polka dot pencil skirt once it gets warmer! Hurry up Spring!
Some very windy pictures taken on our roof! I've never had a roof space before, and although the weather isn't great for it now, it's a perfect place to take pictures and for sunbathing and parties this summer! This is a relatively new skirt from American Apparel. Yes, pleats again, I just can't resist them! really into berry colours at the moment, I guess they're more autumnal than wintery but never mind :-)
The past few days have been spent still settling down. Finally my boxes from the UK arrived yesterday. I was getting worried they were taking so long and the majority of my shoes, handbags and over 15 hats were in them! So scared they had gotten lost!
I've started up a Tumblr for extra pics and post previews while I'm on the go. If you use Tumblr, check it out! xxx
Happy New Year guys! Sorry it's a bit belated, i've been crazy busy! So we finally moved to New York this week! It's been really mad so far, furnishing the apartment and organising a million different things. But, yes, it's been incredible too. Yesterday we took advantage of the amazing weather and ventured to Central Park for a well-deserved relaxing afternoon and managed to take these pics at the same time. You can see the last time I wore a similar outfit here, which was posted on Stockholm Streetstyle this week! :-) xx
