I’m not going to lie here. I gave it my best shot to be all cool and slick – like one of the Mad Men ladies. Yes. That was the look I was going for. And then my shoe got caught in one of those NYC drains. Ok fine, it happened twice. Fail. Anyway, I love Brooklyn; it’s edgy. I love the quirky restaurants, delicious brunch eateries, and arty-farty shops. Myself & Wendy stumbled upon a street which looks similar to Chelsea in London I have a weird thing for spotting pretty doors. On our breezy wander, Wendy spotted a beautiful door. We looked at each other, at the same time and we just knew – that was the door. I’m dressed in one of my favourite outfits, the little silk strappy cami and statement trouser. It’s simple and makes me feel all womanly. It’s the perfect uniform for running around the shops, sitting through meetings, lunch and an afternoon of brainstorming like a true New York business lady. The cami & trousers are from Topshop. The sunglasses are from eBay. The heels are Jimmy Choos. I wore the gingham black & white trousers because they remind me of the NYC skyscrapers at night.
