Welcome to New York

In 2014 on one of my travels I was lucky enough to get to visit New York City for the first time. It was everything I ever dreamed it would be- right down to the smoking man hole covers and yellow school buses (as an English person who used to have an unhealthy obsession with American high school drama’s when I was younger- this was FAR too exciting for me), I fell in love instantly. I ate deliciously unhealthy foods and did a unhealthy amount of shopping, saw some gorgeous art and danced around outside Juliard- rode in several yellow taxis and became happily lost in snowy central park. It was magical. I promised myself that I wouldn’t stay away for long and thank goodness I will be back soon- I have another trip planned for October this year. Here are a couple of snaps I took along the way- I hope you enjoy!

I mean- it was 5pm somewhere right??  20140304_024231 20140304_024559^This is what I look like when I’ve been awake for 48 hours and decide to go for a walk down broadway after a full day of waiting in airports and flying. And when it’s -12 Celsius and nothing feels real- especially not Times Square and especially not finally being in the place you’ve always seen on TV.

That’s all for now my lovelies- I hope you’ve had a wonderful start to 2015, because I sure have.

Weekly style inspiration- Alexa Chung

Image

This week’s style inspiration post has to go to the lovely Alexa Chung. Alexa is an English model/tv presenter, and her style is, in my opinion, perfect.

She tends to be rather androgynous, sticking to dark colours and showing a passion for wearing tailored suits, making her style a very distinctive one. Many people find this charming however, with multiple influential people including Karl Lagerfeld  and Vogue’s Anna Wintour describing her as “a phenomenon” and “the Kate Moss of the new generation”.

And of course we cant forget the famous handbag brand Mulberry, that designed, and named the much sought after “Alexa” bag in her honour.

She’s gorgeous and I’m obviously completely jealous.

What do you guys think of Alexa’s style?

(its 5 minutes to midnight, this still counts as a friday post right?) haha!

See you again tomorrow~

À bientôt!!
