MY WAY

1234

Having experienced a New York winter before, I understand how the arctic conditions create a winter uniform of Canada Goose coats. That being said, I refuse to sacrifice all traces of my personal style, with coats that could pass as quilted duvets and snow boots fit for the slopes, especially this side of winter when the temperatures aren’t yet below freezing. So, I’m doing it my way and instead of buying into the sea of Ski coats I bought a beautifully impractical floor length wool number from Zara. I also succumbed to the temptation of the black friday sales and ‘invested’ in these patent Whistles boots… at least my feet will be warm and dry if nothing else!

GREY SCALE

GREYGREY.3grey2.2GREY.1GREY.4GREY.6I’ll spare the excuses of how busy I’ve been with the new job (and new puppy!) and how much I’ve missed posting my daily wears and I’ll skip straight to the good stuff. This is my my November style in a nutshell: Oversized sweaters, wool trousers, pointed flats. On repeat. Oh winter, I love you.

HIT REFRESH

grey5grey7grey2grey9grey3grey6grey1GreyIt’s October in New York and with the turning of leaves there is a refreshing shift in style. For me, there is nothing better than a fresh start, a new season calls for an all important updated wardrobe and with that the exciting promise to reinvent. I see it as a clean slate to refresh my style, banishing the repetitive summer wears of barely there basics, and replacing them with rich fabrics and generously proportioned silhouettes. There is no doubt about it the hero of this season is knitwear. This one from Zara is a loud echo of the Celine knit-suit that stormed the runway and I couldn’t be more obsessed with the long hand covering sleeves and slashed side slits. I’m wearing it here with some baggy cropped trousers, they make a nice change to the usual cigarette shape I go for, adding a much needed touch of volume, a look I’ll be adopting in every way conceivable this fall. As for the loafers (Porter magazine is calling this manish chunky flat the ‘new loafer shape’ to covet) trust Zara to come up with a High Street equivalent of the ubiquitous Marni shoe. When I saw them online I knew they needed to be part of my new season refresh and judging from the insane response on Instagram, you all couldn’t agree more.

And speaking of fresh starts, I shared some exciting news today on Instagram that I have found a job in fashion e-commerce in New York. It’s a very similar role to what I was doing at Selfridges in London so I’m feeling very excited to finally get back on the career ladder! I’m going to apologise in advance for the sporadic posting on the blog that is bound to follow as I lead a normal 9 to 5 but I promise I have every intention to continue The Wears as I spent so much time building it and really love sharing my style inspirations with everyone. Thank you to everyone for reading and following my New York adventure so far x

Oatmeal

I’m sorry for the lack of posts these past weeks! Unfortunately for the blog things have been pretty busy for me lately but for the good and the changes happening are something I could not be more excited about. I intend to explain more in a later post but for now, let me make it up to you with a dose of oaty goodness. I’m pretty much obsessed with all shades of beige this season whether it’s creamy bisque or tawny brown, the only condition is that it comes in the form of chunky oversized knitwear. I blame Celine and of course the 70s vibe in the air this fall. Although this jumper is nowhere near as oversized as I intend to wear my knits going forward – I’m still clinging to the last rays of summer in the city – you can expect the proportions to get bigger and better from here on out. You can blame The Row for that one.

THINKING AHEAD

Longline3Longline2Longline1September is here and I’m finally adding light layers to the style equation starting with this Topshop jacket. I really love the silhouette with lack of sleeves contrasted by a longer length, it makes it the ideal transitional piece for fall. It works effortlessly thrown over summer staples and always thinking ahead, it will look even better layered over chunky roll neck knits. One more black classic to add to my wardrobe… who’s counting anyway?
