I think it’s finally official – grey is my new black this season. My love for black, of course, isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, but I’ve found myself adding a lot of new grey pieces to my wardrobe over the last few weeks. Such a timeless, classic colour that will never date. This weekend, I wore this new All Saints grey coat for the first time and I’m 100% in love! During a recent trip to Kildare Village, I asked your opinion about it on my snapchat (retroflame1) and you all seemed to love it too. A purchase that I definitely won’t regret! Paired with a pair of leather look trousers, simple black boots and my new favourite Reiss bag – it was the perfect casual Sunday look here in NYC. I wasn’t able to find a link for this exact coat but I came across some similar versions Here & Here.
….oh and sometimes, I do actually do something different with my hair. Haha! Nothing very fancy or complicated, but at least it’s a slight change, right?
It was so nice to be back shooting in New York again with Christina. I know I was only gone a few weeks, but there’s honestly just something about working & shooting here in New York that makes me feel so full of enthusiasm. We shot this look at 9am on Sunday morning and although it would have been nice to have a little lie in, I didn’t mind one bit getting up early to work on this. Blogging involves a lot of working weekends & sometimes some sacrifices (crazy nights out, etc.) but if I didn’t love it, I wouldn’t do it! Plus, I absolutely love how quiet & peaceful the Upper East Side is on Sunday mornings so it’s always a treat to be up a little earlier & I guess, almost have the place to myself.
Hope you’ve all had a great start to the week!
