A Williamsburg Brunch.

My first week in Manhattan has been an adventure in itself.  I’ve mostly focussed on exploring downtown Manhattan these past few days but I’ve also travelled over to Brooklyn, to see Park Slope and Williamsburg.  Yesterday I met a writer friend for lunch* and walked back from Brooklyn across the Williamsburg Bridge.  The sun was shining and the buildings of Manhattan were glistening in the light – I’m still wowed by my new skyline!

It’s starting to feel very cold here, so yesterday I was wearing layers: I wore my new Reiss funnel neck coat with belt, Reiss leggings, my Dune Tavern boots, old River Island Jacket and my new ASOS Black cut out silk tank.  This is such a basic outfit -I mainly want to show you all the ASOS top – the photos doesn’t show the silk tank well, so I’ve given another picture below as I love the style of the back and can’t wait for summer to show it off properly!

I think my ‘fashion mission’ for the next week or so is to find a good, stylish pair of sunglasses as you’re just not a proper Manhattan-ite without them it seems.  I have an old square pair but I want some big, round sunnies or aviators.  Suggestions as always, welcome!

  10. Fabulous pictures. It looks like you are really settling in. And you are right, when I came to NYC it was the coldes week ever. Now it is still freezing but at least the snow is almost gone. As for sunglasses I have the RayBan aviators and I love them and if you want large round ones, Tom Ford makes really good ones. I actually want cat-eye shaped sunglasses for the new year …


  11. Your Manhattan life is sounding so glamorous 🙂 I’d go for aviators!!! Hope you are doing well…I’m excited to be home from the states – and able to read blogs…like yours!! again 🙂

    Those boots! They’re outrageously, sexily, fabulously kick ass!

    You should definitely invest in some new sunglasses. Make like Jackie O – who, incidentally, you look more than a little alike! – and swish around your new city in a pair of large, statement-making bug eye shades.

    Exploring is always fun! But it sure does look chilly outside! You’ve got good layering going on there though. I hope you find a good pair of sunglasses!
