coral capped-sleeve blouse: Primark
denim shorts: Topshop
grey cardi: H&M
gold circles necklace: Topshop sale
bronze-coloured rings: both Dorothy Perkins
moccasins: River Island
black tights: Boots

You know I said yesterday that I'd bought myself some bits and bobs for my looming New York adventure, to make myself feel good in some new pieces? Well I sort of ruined that today by wearing a lot of it. Nice one, Rosie. Maybe I can get myself something else before?! Ha.

The simple yet sweet cardi, coral blouse and moccasins were all bought yesterday and I just couldn't resist wearing them today on my trip into uni. We had a long-awaited meeting about the trip and I can safely say I am even more excited, if possible. My friend Robyn and I were discussing the endless possibilities: a bike tour through Central Park, a gig of some sort, maybe a broadway show, unique vintage shops, the Empire State Building at night and a horsedrawn carriage through Central Park too if we become, you know, filthy rich.

If anybody has been before or is a born-and-bred New Yorker, I would love to hear some words of wisdom on what you think I just have to do while I'm there. Thanks!


  1. Love the blouse, beautiful colour!

  2. Nice post! glad i found this blog!

    (btw, red/pink definitly fits you)

  5. You look really lovely! The colour of that blouse is so vibrant, beautiful statement piece. I would be the same if I was going to New York! It would be so exciting, I'd even want to see if the mcdonalds taste the same and also compare sizes!... sounds silly but the simple things amaze me haha!
