High Line

August 4, 2014

One of my favourite spots in New York City is the High Line in West Village. The High Line is a 1,6km linear park built on a part of the old New York Central Railroad. The first two phases have been completed and the third phase is expected to open later this year.

Yes it may be over ran by tourists on weekends but despite that I still find it a relaxing space. With little cafe’s set up it’s easy to grab yourself an ice coffee and sit under a tree with your book listening to the sound of people, kids laughing and the sound of trickling water. It’s urban gardens like these that make living in a bustling city bearable.

Enough about the High Line, more about the clothes right 😉 Well, Zara is currently having a sale and I went a little O.T.T. My outfit below is a full Zara look for under $100! How cute are these striped trousers?! Little tip when it comes to wearing striped pants, always, and I mean always, make sure you buy a pair with vertical stripes and not horizontal. Vertical stripes make you look slimmer and taller.


P.S For those of you visiting, going to visit or live in New York City the High Line offers free stargazing every Tuesday night from 7:30pm. You can gaze at the stars, planets, and moon through the high-powered telescopes of the Amateur Astronomers Association, and chat with the experts about the sights you see. Pretty cool I’d say.

Boyfriend Jeans

April 10, 2014

So ladies we all know that boyfriend jeans are one of the most comfortable items a girl can own. I’ll be honest with you, it took me awhile to finally start wearing them. In the beginning I felt very self conscious that my ass looked strange, but after wearing them around the house I feel in love with their comfort and they soon made it from “pants-around-the-house” to “pants-I-wear-out-and-about”.

On the flip side this fashion trend can go horrible wrong, so how does one wear boyfriend jeans without looking like their boyfriend?

Personally I would never wear a baggy top with my boyfriend jeans, too much bagginess and oversized items starts to look sloppy. I would always recommend teaming your boyfriend jeans with a fitted top.

To take things a little further, slipping on a pair of heels and a touch of lipstick will definitely add a touch of femininity to your boyfriend jeans.

For today’s look though I have opted for a more casual look, no heels, but this fitted striped top from Country Road worked perfectly with my boyfriend jeans.

How do you wear your boyfriend jeans? Do you hate them or love them? Let me know by commenting below?
