I'll Meet You in New York City...

Not long now until I run off to New York and I can’t even explain how excited I am getting. I’m now starting to really plan where I want to go and what I want to do, making sure to write down where everything is. There are some things I’m leaving off my list this time I’d rather make sure I do a few things and really enjoy my time in America than rush around trying to do everything and then remember nothing.

So today what I would like to know is; have you been to New York and what did you do when you went? Recommendations for places to eat and places to see that might be just off the tourist routes or little known will be greatly appreciated.

Lookbook: Boyfriend

Topshop Ripped Boyfriend Jeans, Topshop Swing Vest, Dorothy Perkins Black Court shoes, Me & Zena Ring, Topshop Skull Bracelet, Michael Kors Chronograph Watch.

So I have to admit I may be a little in love with these ripped Topshop boyfriend jeans. They are so comfy and so easy to wear, I can accessorise them for day and night easily and I never thought I would say this but I’m even enjoying the slightly cropped length of them. For this outfit I decided to dress them up with black heels, a plain black cami top and some rings.

I’ve really noticed that my jewellery habits have changed and I don’t really wear necklaces anymore. There was a time I would even consider wearing rings; I always felt they got in the way but now I love them as a simple way of dressing up a daytime look. I particularly like my new Me & Zena gem ring that I got off of ASOS, the gem is such a lovely shade of green and it fits so well I forget I am wearing it a lot of the time.

AW13 Style Inspiration

I always think it is a good idea to get inspiration for your style and as I mentioned back in January when I did a post about Style by Inspiration I keep track of anything I find stylish on a Pinterest board. Well I am still doing that and for AW13 I’ve even made a private board of things for the upcoming season so I can spot my more recent trends to inspire.

So far I am loving leather skirts with tees and converse, chambray shirts layered under jumpers, oversized coats and jackets, floaty midi skirts with sweatshirts and heels, ankle boots with gold details and hats (even if the British weather is a bit windy for them at times). Ripped jeans, monochrome also feature but I still stay true to my love of relaxed mixed with edgy with a touch of girlie or Bohemia.  I find this way of looking at style means I spend my money more wisely and even look at what I currently own to update for the new season. As Vivienne Westwood once said "Buy Less, Choose Well"

Lookbook: Pleated

ASOS Off Shoulder Top, ASOS Pleated Midi Skirt, ASOS Across Body Bag, ASOS Caged Heels, Topshop Rings, Michael Kors Chronograph Watch

I am becoming a little bit obsessed with ASOS. It just makes life so easy with next day delivery that you can have whatever you want at the push of a button. It’s really doesn't help my shopping addiction that they have an app too. I pulled this look together for a meal out with my friend. I wanted something classy but simple and loved the idea of letting the skirt be the focus with all black for the rest of the outfit.

I've become a little obsessed with rings recently too and have taken to wearing quite a few at once as you can see. I'm slowly getting a nice collection up but I do feel I want to start investing in better pieces of jewellery as it all goes tacky and discolours your fingers otherwise. Now I just want a few good pieces of quality jewellery rather than lots of cheap pieces.

Dream Come True

Image from City Walker Tumblr

I never thought after years and years of trying and years and years of my travel partners dropping out on me that I would ever get to see America. It has always been a dream of mine to go to New York. Maybe it’s the movies, maybe it is because the city is so varying and different from this small town I live in, or maybe it’s because its somewhere my heart has always told me is meant for me but even without going I am in love with the city. So imagine my excitement that I finally get to go in October! It will also mark off one of my 13 for 2013 challenges of going to another continent.

 I’m already making a Pinterest board of to-dos and I am plotting the perfect capsule wardrobe for four days in the Big Apple {and that pesky Atlantic flight}. The idea of juggling comfy shoes and clothes that are stylish and easy to wear in multiple ways over 4 days allowing for hot and cold weather is a challenge I will happily accept.

 If you have and suggestions of where to go for good food, good sights and good shopping please, please, please comment I really want to make the most of my short time in this incredible city.

Lookbook: Dog Tax

Zara Plaid Shirt, Topshop Vest, Camden Market Necklace, Oasis Cherry Jeans, Mulberry 'Tillie' Bag, Acessorize Ring, Ring from Santorini.

So this post is a bit of an oldie in the lines of my clothing but I forgot all about posting it until I stumbled across it in my photo folders. I wore this last year when I had a day up in the Peaks with friends but it does have some AW13 trends in there so maybe I am a year ahead in style {or just love plaid and grunge}

I haven't had chance to spend much time up in the Peaks this year and normally I like to go up fairly frequently to escape my little town  and all the hustle bustle of everyday life sit in the grass and relax in the sun, or more likely cloud. I know I always wish I lived somewhere more interesting but I would never trade the Peaks for anywhere, up there feels like home.

Lookbook: Short Shorts

H&M Lace Panel Shirt, Topshop High Waisted Shorts, Michael Kors Chronograph Watch, Primark Studded Slipper Shoe, Topshop Rings, Topshop 'E' Necklace.

I wore this outfit back in July and am only just getting around to posting it now. I wanted something for a summer evening when it was boiling hot for a bonfire and meal with a friend. So I just pulled this together, its been so long and my wardrobe has been so varied since then with the ever changing British weather its hard to think why I thought of this but it was probably because I wanted to wear the shoes.
