My summer series continue today with my second favorite city in the world: The Big Apple. The city that never sleep, the playground of girls from Sex and the City, this place bursts with an incredible energy and positive attitude. And don't even get me started on all those stylish, fabulous and inspiring working girls, drinking their morning lattes, hailing taxis and looking amazing at any time of day. I've only visited NYC twice, but I instantly fell in love with that wonderful feeling that everything is possible (you know what they say: if you can make it there, you can make it anywhere). Who knows, mayble one day I'll pack my bags and go live there, maybe for a year or two, crossing off another item from my laundry list of dreams.
Until then, I can imagine the perfect day & night outfits I would pack in my suitcase when going there: they should definitely be sophisticated, classic and well- tailored, with just the perfect amount of edge. Think sleek black pants, neutral silk blouses, chic pointy heels and diamant studs. When feeling a little bit more adventurous, opt for sequins, leather jacket and the pop of color provided by an amazing bag (always think quality over quantity). You'll look beyond fabulous in less than a New York minute!
