Both the last two weekends here in NYC have been lovely. My birthday weekend was filled with fun things to do. Thanksgiving was very relaxing and a chance to reflect that I’m grateful for all the amazing people I have met here in America as well as for friends who have continued to write, email, Skype and chat with me from back home.
In the manner of relaxation, I have this amazing kimono style dress/jacket from Topshop that I adore for its throw-on-simplicity and chic minimalism. I can wear it tightly wrapped around at the waist, more loosely wrapped to give an ooh la la side split, or open as a jacket over jeans. It was found for me by Topshop’s personal shopping service in SoHo NYC – a service I hadn’t intended to use, but the shop wasn’t busy and they were very obliging. I also got some great style tips from them during my impromptu visit and they even have mini cupcakes, so points all round!
Sadly since my shopping trip I have not been able to find this exact same style online. This silk wrap dress is a close and very elegant match, however.
