NYC Day 1

A mega hello from New York! I can't believe I'm actually here....even if I am stuck inside today because of a terrible blizzard. I wanted to share some photos with you as I enjoy my trip- I cannot take enough shots, as you can imagine. I've got so many incredible images of NYC to share with you!
So it's been between mild and absolutely bitter in different places and parts of the day so my wardrobe is all over the show, and consists of fur and thermal layers. I'll catch up in another post about what I've been up to and where I've been hanging around but put it this way...I haven't yet been in bed before 5am! I don't know when I got so hardcore, but it is killing me!

I've worn my Adi Superstars out so I've opted for some Stan Smiths this trip, clean and lovely. A massive thank you to Foot Locker for hooking me up with these little beauties, my feet are forever grateful after the miles I've walked so far. Foot Locker are celebrating their American Heritage with one full month of sneaker love next month! Check out their social media channels for further details and I'll be posting some more information on it very soon.

I hope you all had a wonderful Monday! Thanks so much for reading.

Native Youth Womenswear Drop

Native Youth have rapidly become one of the brands I'm most excited to get my hands on this SS15. Scandi notes and clean lines in perfect palettes, who wouldn't? Just look at this lookbook. The designers have taken inspiration from art, photography and contemporary culture to create nothing short of one heck of a collection for SS15. One of the things I love most about the collection is its androgynous twist, perfect for those among you who would rather wear some killer heels with an oversized silhouette.
The collection mirrors the menswear collection perfectly, I like to think of it as a 'his & hers' brand. Perfect.

So keep your eyes on Native Youth and await their SS15 drop

I'm off to New York on Thursday so I'll be blogging during my time there. You can keep your eye on my Instagram @ropesofholland but I warn you, it'll be filled with excited NY city posts!

Loitering in LDN

I've just returned home from the most incredible few days in London with one of my besties, Megan, better known as ASOS Megan or Pagesbymegan.com. She's my Mancunian love and I miss her loads now she's down South. I also got to meet her little sis, Faye, or Fellaby as I like call her- she's also a bloody love.
There was an additional reason I've been down in London but, I can't tell you anything until next week! It's all a bit mental but if my gut serves me right, it's going to be amazing. I just thought I'd share a few snaps from my time and outfits down there and wish you a mega weekend.

Thank you so much for reading.
Have an awesome Saturday night. I'll be in bed.

That fur bomber

All hail ASOS and the incredible collection that is ASOS White. This fur bomber is what my actual dreams are made of and I'm practically living in it at the moment. Not to bang on about New York, which is next week by the way... but I picked it up with the snowy NYC weather in mind. You can literally pair it with anything and I think it's the best faux fur jacket I've seen out there. So if you happen to spot a bear like creature with blonde hair, it's probably just me. I popped on my trusty Adidas Stan Smith's with my bargainous £5 pinstripe trousers from H&M sale to finish off this look.

I hope you're all making it through the week and have some lovely plans this weekend. I'm off to London tomorrow for a long weekend. Thanks so much for reading and a big hello to my newest reader, Tom.
