Whether you're uptown or downtown, a well fitted pair of denim jeans is never out of place in New York, New York. You will also never lose – blue denim is a chic year-round necessity and can take you through seasons, whether layered with whites and a red lip combo for summer, or thrown into a marriage of denim of denim come winter. It's time to commit. 

New York City

Without a doubt, there's an impossible number of things to do, see and eat in the Big Apple, and so naturally I'm always out and about, hopping in and out of cabs, and moving around comfortably in generous kitten heels. I'm definitely team stripes and lace-ups, and have been for a while now. But throw in a nuance of pyjama inspiration with a loosely tied shirt at the waist, a dash of pale blue in the form of a swing skirt, and a feminine straw hat to take you from day-to-night, and here we've accomplished the New York ease of a silhouette.

All in good fun.

I am by nature a planner. I always felt I had to plan out my life, or at least try to. Upon graduation, however, I've accepted that spontaneity is the spice of life, and that not everything has to be set in stone.

So when I had sworn to keep my eye on the weather forecast for the entire week leading up to this shoot, I had an inkling that the sun would go into hiding the minute I rocked up on set. Sure enough, it had started to drizzle and I hadn't thought of rainproofing my hair. Needless to say, I was pretty crushed about the gloomy weather and my newly soaked gown – but as I've been told, make the most out of any situation and it could produce some stellar results. In this case, I liked how these photos of my favourite silhouette turned out. No planning whatsoever required.

Hope everyone has had a pleasant weekend! As evident on my Instagram, I've been getting into sunsets. You too?
