New York Prep! 

So I am off to the worlds most beautiful concrete jungle NEW YORK CITY in five days time and I cannot contain my excitement!! This will be my third time visiting this amazing place so I thought I would just share with you guys what the up and coming plans are. 

This New York trip is very special to me so I want to ensure that we see absolutely, every, single thing and have the most amazing time and take a million and one photos (I’m the annoying tourist with the camera)! I will more than likely do a bit of shopping but not go to crazy like I did last year as my credit card is still recovering (oops!). Our trip is going to be mainly site seeing which of course is just breathtaking to see. 

The places we intend to visit start from ‘The top of the Rock’ at the Rockefeller to touring around seeing all the ‘Sex and the City’ sites expressing our inner Carrie Bradshaw. I’m not going to give to much away as that will spoil the post for you guys when I return ;)! 

Now clothes wise I have 20kg luggage for 5 days!! So I’m packing outfits that I can make warm or cool as the weather in New York can range from blazing sun to terrential rain. I do keep checking the weather but you never know till your there so I like to be prepared. I’m excited to wear some of the outfits I have planned as I have so much to choose from and have saved some pieces especially for this trip. I’m also thinking of putting together a New York look book when I come back, so fingers crossed I will have lots of lovely photos because my mum is a bit of a pro with the camera! 

Now I have thrown an outfit down below as it wouldn’t be a blog post without some pictures right? 

So…

Each year H&M bring out the Coachella collection for those lucky enough that get to sun it up in L.A at Palm Springs… oh just imagine that life! 
In previous years I have brought alot from this collection, as there are always some lovely pieces that are so good holidays and upcoming festivals. But this year I just had my eye on this lilac satin lace dress (lilac being one of my fave colours). I have styled this dress over a plain white tee but I would also wear it with a band tee. It was a bit cool that day to go without a jacket so I chose to layer up with my favourite studded leather from Zara. I felt that my legs looked a bit bare so I finished the look off with a fishnet tight, some glittery socks and my kids adidas superstars (yay to squeezing into kids shoes)! I absolutely love this outfit and I think it’s very me. I just love wearing a dress and some trainers with a sparkly sock looks super CUTE :).

Here’s some outfit pictures that were taken when I went to London for the day. I’ll direct link the pieces I’m wearing at the bottom of this post.
