New York, New York.
A few weeks ago, Renata and I flew to New York to wine, dine and have an absolute blast! *pardy non-stop* We spent 7 days scouting the Big Apple and eating our body weight in pizza on pizza, whilst having zero crust to give. *postpones beach body goals for next year*
This was my second time visiting the New York City. My first time was way back in 2011 when I was still studying in Cambridge. I was this young (and naive) 20-year-old, dreaming of living in a big city like New York. *channels his inner-Carrie Bradshaw* From tall buildings to quirky diners, every corner of this city left me inspired for years to come. Therefore, I knew that I’ll be back there one day… and I was!
However, 7 years later and I see myself constantly comparing New York to London. Even though both cities have their own charm but London’s been severely growing on me in recent years such that I can’t see myself living anywhere else but in the Big Smoke. *London boy at heart* Oh, and, I miss my cosy little bed in Fitzrovia, butter melting on my crumpets and breakfast tea brewing to the Gods!
Shades of Mine.
On this particular day, I was scouting about the Upper East Side in hopes of accidentally bumping into Blair Waldorf. *xoxo, Gossip Girl* I picked up my new favourite Emporio Armani sunglasses which I discovered at the Sunglasses Shop a while ago. Their new collection features a matte rose gold frame with gold mirrored lenses. My gal Victoria (@philorose) was super jel of those because her current Instagram feed is serving some serious role gold vibes. Therefore, she’s on a mission to collect as many rose gold items as possible. *hides his shades in a Philorose-free place*
To complete this shady look, I’ve decided to serve my signature London boy realness. I paired a single-breasted summer mac from Burton with a short-sleeve shirt with feather details to bring out the right colour of the jacket. I’m also stoked to finally take my favourite pair of Converse boots out for a play. You’re definitely going to see more of those babies in my summer #ootd posts. Yay!
What do you think of this look? Would you wear any of these items?
