what I wore: the big apple

I'm baaaaack! 

I wish I could have stayed in new york but it's always nice to be reunited with my bed and proper cups of tea! I thought I should take some outfit photos whilst I was away (in between eating too many pancakes, squealing at every yellow taxi and generally being as excited as a 5yr old in a sweet shop) I'll pop them up over the next few weeks (it makes a nice change to have some outdoor photos again hurrah!) 

well the first day was sunny but a little bit chilly so I layered up like a snowman (this was a reoccurring theme!) I wore one of my old vintage denim shirts, my fave urban outfitters sweater and my go-to topshop leigh jeans. 

my boohoo faur fur is my absolute favourite coat this year so it had to come along for the trip too. I love it's vintage fit and style and it's pretty much like wearing a hug all day long! 

after a few hours of sight seeing in midtown we made it to the famous shake shack and well... complete gluttony ensued! if you're planning a trip to the big apple pop this place on your to do list! worth the visit for burgers alone.. wowza! 
lucia reuer collar fur coat: boohoo boutique (now in the sale!)
eagle sweatshirt: urban outfitters renewal similar one here!
shirt: vintage
jeans: topshop
eagle necklace: topshop
converse all stars: office

If you want me to include recommendations of places to eat & visit in NYC just let me know and I'll include them in my next posts!

back soon!

  13. So jealous that you were in New York! I've only been once (for a weekend) and was so overwhelmed and loved everything! I also adore your fur coat - so gorgeous! I find it so hard to wear my fur coat, for some reason. I always feel super overdressed.

    Seeing all your wonderful photo's have made me excited to hopefully go in the future, I'd love to see where you'd recommend so I can jot them down for when I go!
