What I’m wearing: in favour of navy and black

We’re currently on a whirlwind trip around the US, packing three cities into 10 days. For our one full day in New York City, I figured we’d revisit some of our old favourite bars, eat at our fave restaurants, walk around Central Park, maybe hit up a museum or two. 

But when I asked MR what he wanted to do, he said, “Oh please, god, can I please spend the whole day taking photos of you? And could you please adjust your hair after each one and then ask me to start over when you realise your bag is turned around?”

Personally I would have gone for Option A – but really, who am I to argue with a request like that? I’m really selfless in that way.

Thus was the impetus for the following photoshoot. I also chose to pose in front of various graffiti walls because that’s definitely something unique and not at all cliche.

As for the outfit… I’m kind of loving this combo. Black and navy are two of my favourite colours and I like wearing them together. (Probably partly because I remember being told as a kid not to wear them together and I enjoy the rebellion.)

I also like transforming pieces to ensure maximum usage. So I love that this Whistles jumpsuit can double as loose trousers when you throw a button-up shirt on top. However, the outfit loses points for the amount of time it takes to get out of.

(Yes, I have to fully remove the shirt in order to pull down the jumpsuit. Which feels super wrong in a grungy East Village dive bar. The difficulty level is almost enough to make me reconsider ordering a fifth glass of Sauvignon Blanc.*)
