I’ve only been to Brooklyn, New York a handful of times in my life, but I know it’s one of my favourite places in the world. I love the laidback atmosphere, the ‘not-quite-finished’ look of stuff and the independent shops selling everything from artisan cheese to gold teeth.

Most of all, I love Brooklyn’s style.

When I saw blue skies and sunshine this morning, I knew I wanted to wear my ASOS denim smock dress. It’s a little on the short side so requires great weather and a strict gradual tan regime, but I love the relaxed shape.

Teamed with vintage-style brogues and a canvas tote with my hair in heidi braids and my favourite red lipstick in place, I felt super Brooklyn. If only my bag was full of second-hand treasures from the Brooklyn Flea, or I was on my way to the Williamsburg Creamery for an ice cream. Sigh.

4pm – back to my Williamsburg apartment to watch the sun set over Manhattan from my roof terrace

10pm – cosy table at Fornino for the Trevisana – a mozzarella, pancetta, radicchio, goat’s cheese and cherry tomato pizza. 187 Bedford Ave
Midnight – dance the night away at Donna, 27 Broadway

Pass me my credit card, I need to book the next flight to New York…!



I love the casual feel to this dress and the hairstyle compliments it perfectly! I made my first visit to the US a couple of months ago, to Boston, but I’ve got plenty more US cities on my ‘to-visit’ list now!
