Flowers on my Legs

Wheee I'm just about ready to go to New York today, but I have a little time for a quick update! I'm super excited to go to New York. You might remember that I went with my parents last year, and because of that I was like "ah I don't mind that much about going back", but when you live in New Jersey, you have to go a couple of times (I think so at least!) and I'm really excited to go back and see "the real New York". I'm going with a friend who goes to Columbia, so I'm hoping to see all the underground places I didn't get to last time- cute boutiques and vintage shops and really good food. Ooh and a trip to MAC! We're only going for a day, but I think it's going to be a lot of fun. Even though I think it's going to be about a million degrees. Sock bun and light chiffon dresses are the way forward. Speaking of which, I think I've finally perfected my sock bun. It's slightly off-centre, but it's much neater than usual. I am very proud. Seriously, what did we do before the sock bun? I think I would be dying in the New Jersey humidity without them!

This was what I wore yesterday. For the most part at least. By mid-afternoon I was so hot I was in shorts and a ponytail. But this was what I wore for most of the day. I have a bit of a love-hate relationship with these trousers. On the website they looked much more fitted and straight cut (like my swan trousers), but they're a little too loose in real life. I wanted skinny floral trousers and this isn't really what these are. I think the major problem is that they're a little big. They didn't have an 8 in stock, so I couldn't send them back and get a smaller size, so I cut the label out and vowed to learn to love them. I'm considering getting them tailored when I get home. I would like them to fit a little better around the hips and calves. We'll see. Anyway, I actually quite like this outfit, despite slightly ill-fitting trousers. Next on my list is some floral jeans. I am in love with these ones from AX Paris but they're out of stock in my size! Hey remember when I never wore trousers?!

Well I'm off to the city that never sleeps (isn't it funny that I can just pop over to New York for the day?!)! I have my camera ready so I'll take lots of photos. I'm also hopefully meeting up with the lovely Kallie so I'm excited for a little blogger meet up!
Have a wonderful day guys!

  1. I've been eyeing the same AX Paris ones, but I can't quite decide if I'm ready for patterned trousers. Which is silly, considering I'll happily wear jeans in all colours of the rainbow.

  2. It doesn't actually look that bad but yes it would be better fitted. I have the same problem with Boohoo but they are a great site. I love their dresses. Have fun in NY and look forward to reading about your adventure.

  8. your trousers are so fun!  I think taking them to a tailor is a great idea.  These are too cute to toss.
