NYC vs SF style

Ever since our move back to NYC, my personal style has been on a tilt, but I’d like to see that in a good way. In SF, a lot of times I struggled being the most dressed up person in the room. And believe me most times, I wasn’t even wearing heels.

I’m not sure what it is about NYC, but people here always dress to impress. Yes, the style is a bit more relaxed these days, and sneakers are acceptable [on occasion]. However, when it’s past 6pm on a Friday night, you won’t see a woman out without heels, even in Lower East Side. So as you can imagine, while I love keeping my California cool, I’ve been getting a bit dressier.

Bomber jacket trend has taken over the whole planet, and I obviously took my time to find the one. This Issey Miyake number was love at first sight, dressy yet cool. The pleats structure kind of reminds me of NYC architecture. Plus, it takes me back to the days I used to wear a bomber in high school. Mix nostalgia with modernism, and good things will happen.

Thank you for reading xx

  1. Omg that bag! It’s gorgeous!
    Also I love all the different textures in this outfit, they really work well together!
    And you’re right about NYC — whenever I visit, I tend to feel somewhat underdressed. But I love the city for having that effect on people, it makes you want to make a little more effort 🙂

  2. Such a cool outfit! Love the bomber and the blue pockets of your shorts!
    My city is super casual. Sometimes I love it but sometimes I’m in a mood where I want to dress up and then I feel really overdressed when I’m out. xx

  3. I think the Bay Area has a hard time analyzing Zuck’s errrr style haha! 😉 I love the SF vibe but I find NYC’s street scene intoxicating! That bomber jacking is amazing, I see those signature Miyake pleats!

  4. you look gorgeous. I know what you mean about the style. Even in London when I meat my non-blogger friends for a breakfast I try to wear something nice, when they can turn up in trainers and hoodie. They are like:’Are you really wearing dress and jacket for a breakfast?” I’m like”yeah girl!”… x
