Concrete jungle - NYC

AllSaints Spitalfields beanie
Earl Grey asymmetrical sweater
Vera Moda maxi dress
Zara boots

Loving maxi pieces for spring, easy to layer while still keeping a long silhouette. Threw on this off-the-shoulder cropped asymmetrical (three keywords that make it hard for me to pass it up) sweater with ballooning sleeves, and wore leggings and over-the-knee boots under this dress to try to retain body heat. Thankfully it was warm under the sun to take some shots in front of the Flatiron Building, then stop by Eataly nearby for espresso and imagine I was in a market in actual Italy..


  1. Nice pictures, love the outfit! And I want to go to New York so baaaadly, but I guess I'll have to wait.. haha :)

  5. i read on your twitter that you are going to chicago. you MUST go to Hot Doug's and Gino's East. both places are good hot dog and pizza, joints. one of my favorite places to have brunch is Orange located in lincoln park. Also, toast is good, too.

  6. Beautiful pics! I'm too short to use this kind of dress, but it's lovely!

  7. Love the photographs! The building behind you looks so skinny! x

  8. LOVE this look!!! The off the shoulder sweater is fantastic and I love the hat. Very cute!

  9. You're so stylish!!!Love the mood of this outfit!

  10. Love your outfit and your hair is beautiful!


  11. I saw the girl up there wrote Hot Doug's and Toast- awesome places, especially Toast, I would live there if I could haha. (I'd skip Gino's East though, nothing special). As far as bars go (the important stuff haha) go to Revolution Brewery in Lincoln Park I believe it is- the best food, beer, and atmosphere you will ever have. J. Wellingtons is this cute burger joint that's byob and has these crazy burger creations, and Fountain Head and Longman & Eagle are gorgeous intimate hang out restaurants. You're going to have sooo much fun here, welcome to our city :))
    And duh, I love your maxi/ slouchy sweater thing going on. You look so effortless and feminine, I wish I could be wearing that now as I suffer through writing papers :/

  12. my old office building! the "beach" in front of the flatiron is just the best place for photographs...

  13. Amazing outfit! You look gorgeous!
    Your blog is sooooo inspiring!
    Following! Follow back? <3
