What I’m wearing:
EDITED Coat (via ABOUTYOU)
ALEXANDER WANG Bag (HERE)
Long time, no see. Or should I say – long long long long time no see? I can’t believe that I only just now got around to shoot my first look in the city of all cities. I feel like it’s been yesterday that I moved to New York, and at the same time it feels like I’ve been living here forever. All I know is that the past weeks have been a rollercoaster, but to say it with my all-time-favorite Augustus Waters: it’s been a rollercoaster that only goes up, my friends! (there could be better metaphore for living in NYC, let me tell you that)
The thing I’ve learned the fastest about living here: everything is an extreme. Extremely loud, extremely hot, extremely rainy, extremely cold, extremely windy, extremely crowded or extremely lonely. My sister recently said it best: not everyone gets to live here, but then again, not everyone can. A bad day in New York is a BAD day – but a good day, man – a good day is so much better than anywhere else in the world. I can’t tell you how many times I walked around the city, listening to a good song, and just felt so incredibly giddy and grateful that I get to live here.
In between juggling classes, starting work for NYU.Fashion, exploring the city and maintaining a social life, it’s a miracle that I’m even leaving the house in something other than yoga pants, much less show you what I’m wearing. The past few weeks flew by like a G6 and that’s a fact that I don’t only see on the calendar. When I moved here I told myself I’d get my warmes clothes when it’s, you know, colder. Well news-flash Anni: it’s not always sunny in New York City, and
fall winter is very much here. As much as I love those seasons, I absolutely dread dressing for them. Looking cute in a million layers is just an unfortunate task! Luckily I finally found the perfect black wool-coat on AboutYou, and took it on a downtown stroll on the weekend. I’m not an impulse buyer, so if I say I’ve looked at every coat on their page, you best believe I did. Once again, their range of brands hasn’t failed me, and it took me while, but I couldn’t be happier with my pick! It’s the ideal length, the perfect oversize yet fitted cut, and keeps me warm (and looking cool, pun intended!). Paired with my old Zara leather pants, my gramps‘ oversized cashmere sweater, sneakers and fishnet socks, I think my yoga-pants might have found a new #OOTD rival.
