You know when you find a piece and you just know there & then that you are going to never stop wearing it? That’s exactly how I felt when this grey sleeveless coat arrived to my door. Autumn/Winter perfection! REISS is a brand that never fails to impress me and I think this piece is my new favourite of all. I wore it during London Fashion Week and again during last week’s trip to Galway and I already know you’ll be seeing so much more of it in mixed into my outfits here in New York. Although it’s sleeveless, it’s still so warm! Paired with my go-to pair of leather leggings, my favourite black ankle boots, a cozy jumper & my Chloe bag…this is basically my Winter uniform. Couldn’t be happier to be all wrapped up again!
“Nothing worth having comes easy.”
Coming back to New York this time, for some reason, was a tiny little bit trickier for me. Not that I love this city any bit less but it’s the fact that the goodbyes at home just never get easier. Moving to New York was always a priority for me and no amount of fear was ever going to stop me – but sometimes, even this crazy love for a place doesn’t eliminate the homesick feeling. From the outset, life here probably looks extremely glamorous but behind it all, living in New York requires a lot determination, bravery & quite simply, hard work. But as the quote above says, ‘Nothing worth having comes easy’, and although I was feeling a little down this weekend, getting back into the swing of things yesterday has reminded me exactly why I fell love with the city day 1. The energy, the people, the opportunities…New York, it’s good to be back & I’m ready to give you my all!
Hope you’re having a great week so far!
