Play Time

(H&M top :: MAUREEN LYNCH necklace :: RANDOM shorts from Thailand :: TOPSHOP bag :: BOOHOO.COM wedges)

Another hot and sweaty day in Manhattan. Spent my day strolling around East Village and getting to know what will hopefully, one day soon, be my new home-town! This top is the perfect shade of red, and has made me realise my love for it's delightful result when combined with blue. I have had my eye on a pair of nikes with a similar colour clash and this outfit might have just given me the push to complete the purchase.

Travel in Stripes

(COS jumper :: PENNEYS shorts ::CONVERSE :: THE COBRA SHOP sunglasses ::  TOPSHOP bag :: MK watch)

I had had my eye on this jumper for a while and it was featuring regularly in my dreams, so finally here it is! Being in Manhattan and spending my hours apartment-hunting rather than shopping is torture. Does anyone have any tips on good markets or vintage shops worth visiting?

(ZARA shirt :: TOPSHOP dress :: H&M bag :: JEFFREY CAMPBELL heels :: MK watch)

These small animals are going to be my new best friends, since I shall be sleeping with this dress from now on. How cute are the teeny tiny squirrels? Layering this dress in a variety of ways will be fun....

iCatchers: Classic Black&White

Never underestimate the dramatic effect a simple black and white combination can have. The likes of Elin Kling and Emmaneulle Alt, demonstrate time and time again, the outcome of pairing a white shirt with black jeans and a belt is always striking, modern and highly chic. I find COS always provides simple black and white items with a more contemporary twist.

There hasn't been enough opportunities to wear this dress. Originally I had planned to style it very simply, with a tuxedo black blazer, black strappys and some needed layers of tan! Unfortunately the weather in Ireland does not allow for either the summer clothing, or the opportunity to tan. Look forward to wearing it in New York, a city considerate of these vital fashion conditions.
