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!

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!

Stylishly Yours,

Erika x
