Back Packer

I just landed in the most beautiful city on earth (not biased) and, after a full day of flying, I felt like these snaps of what I brought to this big city were much prettier than I.

I just landed in darling Manhattan and, after a full day of flying, I felt like these snaps of what I brought to this big city were much prettier than I. No amount of mental preparation would have braced me for the heat that hit me in the face once outside the airport, and even after watching them daily for a month last February, the city lights and skyline got me buzzing for the next two weeks of madness. How excited am I!

And these are a few of my tools to go:

  1. The Reformation Cayenne Jumpsuit – Urban Ears Headphones from Fred FlareNokia Lumia 900 – Face of Australia Nail Polish – MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Lipstick – Witchery Heels
  2. Mettle Triangle Clutch – ZARA Heels – Pixie Market Pointed Flats ($68? such a steal) – ASOS Studded Boots – Canon T60 (need to get some film for this baby)Henry Holland for Le Specs Hooded Gold Sunnies from Suede Online

And now, I’m going to try and sleep in the hope that I won’t be jet lagged as all hell in the morning! A bright and early start to visit my babes at Pixie Market, and then some more fun things to keep an eye out for later in the day.
