New York is undoubtedly my happy place. If I had to live anywhere other than London (because girl, you my numero uno) it’d be the Big Apple. There’s something so totally magical about driving over to Manhattan from JFK in a yellow taxi (even if my legs always get stuck to the funny leather seats), the towering skyscrapers against a scorching blue backdrop, heck, even the police offers with donuts at airport security made me get all excited and silly- ‘IT’S LIKE BEING IN A FILM!’ (I must’ve shouted at least 100 times). Anyway- this past month I’ve been bloody lucky enough to visit New York two times, one for work and one which Joe and I booked in a post-tax-return blur of the B.A sale in January (always a smart idea, folks). Anyway- today I’m talking about my first trip, with Keds a few weeks ago! Myself and the gorgeous (and ruddy lovely) Ashley James, flew out to celebrate Keds ambassadorTaylor Swift’s world tour- which in short, sounded like a match made in heaven.
Now, it’s only recently that I’ve become a full Keds convert, but my goodness- they are comfortable (they were the first ever ‘sneaker’ invented, so, y’know- they got this you guys). They go with absolutely everything, and pretty much feel like wearing nothing at all (put it this way- if this girl can wear them for a 12 hour day and not bat an eyelid- they get serious kudos). They were a pump of choice for a certain Ms. Hepburn and Monroe, Yoko Ono married John Lennon in a pair- and mega babe Kelly from Saved by the Bell (as well as ‘Baby’ in Dirty Dancing) also kept them as a trainer of choice- come on, if they’re good enough for Audrey, they’re good enough for me! Plus, they made for the perfect shoe to pair with a light vintage number for a day of exploring NYC, not bad at all! Stay tuned for plenty plenty more NY goodness from my most recent trip, and a vlog too- huzzah!
