Clean Lines


Wearing: Maurie & Eve pants, Zara shirt and heels, Michael Kors watch

Making the most of the sunshine and warmth this morning, and the fact that this is most likely the only time I will be able to step out of the apartment without hiding beneath a layers of every coat I brought with me. I don't do well with the cold and despite creeping in to my bones I have brushed it off focusing rather on the pure excitement of being here. Today was spent shopping on Broadway in Soho and finished with my first High Tea with champagne at The Crosby Hotel. 

As I'm quite tall I have always struggled finding pants that are long enough without losing structure. This sleek and flowing pair by Maurie & Eve are the first to feel like they were tailored to suit my body. Crisp winter white staple paired with my favourite colour that I am making the most of being so available at the moment.

And another reminder to please share and vote daily for Tuula as 'Newcomer of the Year' in the Bloglovin' Awards here... thank you! :)

  11. I love the Crosby Hotel--it's my home away from home every time I travel to NYC! Except this last trip a few weeks back, we stayed at The Surrey and was equally as pleased. Hope you had a successful shopping trip!

  25. I bought this mint blouse from Zara, and when it arrived last Friday I felt in love immediatly with it.I love the shape, the colour and material too...it's so me. What a nice surprise to see it on you, Jess. Really!!! There was also so many similarities in our style in the past, that sometimes I think we are style twins separated at at birth ;-)

  67. I just have to ask you one question...
    How tall are you? And how do you manage to be comfy in high heels if you're tall?

    I am 1.78 cm barefoot and gets like REALLY tall when I wear heels, and I kind of feel indisposed since I become almost one head higher than everyone else. But on the other side I just L-O-V-E wearing heels since they're so pretty... Dilemma!

    So well, to make it short, do you have any tips to get comfy in heels when you're tall?

    I would be very happy if I got an answer ♥

    I like how you make simple outfits look so chic
    (well those pants are a bit unique)
    but I certainly like how you pair those Maurie & Eves
    with a bright, baby blue shirt with clean midlines.
    it's very fresh!!
    no wonder you stocked up on a lot of knits. have a good day in NY!!
    Enjoy the warm weather as much as you can =)
