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!
