Although it feels good to be back home, back to normality and day-to-day routines after a long and busy period of travelling – there is something about New York in particular, that always makes me want to come back, time and time again. It´s busy, ever-changing, inspirational and probably the best city in the world (fact). I rounded up all my favourites in my NYC guide here – but to sum it up, what I love the most about this city, is how relaxed and easy it can be – and always best seen on foot, wandering aimlessly through the streets, constantly discovering something new every time we go…
Dressing for the city isn’t always the easiest as the weather is ever-changing, and we tend to spend our time walking everywhere – so comfort is pretty key, whilst still looking stylish (obvs). Luckily, I found an outfit which embodied all of those things – on the one day where it warmed up a little too. Winning.
I have been obsessed with these black denim dungarees from Primark ever since they landed in my wardrobe last month. They’ve been surprisingly easy to style up and down, and have been a true holiday wardrobe winner throughout my recent travels to L.A and New York (and now that I´m back in London too). Teamed with silk shirts, blouses, t-shirts, jumpers – styled up, or down with heels, sandals, trainers or loafers – it all kind of works.
I particularly love the combination of this feminine and frilly blouse (also from Primark) – teamed with the more boyish style of a pair of dungarees. Balanced out with some slimline and masculine loafers, girly bag and jewellery; the overall look is a relaxed, chic city look.
Don’t get me wrong, I love my luxuries, my designer bags and sunnies… But when it comes to around 80% off my clothing; I´m a high street girl, through and through. And Primark is simply killing it this season. I did a huge wardrobe haul there before I jetted off, and wore it throughout my travels. From the perfect denim, to the cutest shirts and sweaters, activewear and so much more. Love!
I´m the happiest when I´m on holiday, and can just start off the day on foot, without an agenda or specific plan. Although to those of you who have been reading all my travel diaries in the past, know that I always travel with an itinerary (especially when it comes to where to eat, drink, see, shop…) – the feeling of setting off without a map, without being on a time pressure, with no specific plan in mind… That is what a holiday is about. Don’t get me wrong, I won’t ever go anywhere without some kind of research or plan (it makes me more relaxed) – but throughout the travels, its nice to switch off every now and again!
Until next time, New York.
