The last week in New York has been a blast, there’s nothing quite like New York Fashion Week! I love coming each year and this season was extra fun as my blog friend, turned amazing real life friend, Ashley from Afternoon Espresso and I got a fabulous apartment together in Chelsea.

What I Wore: L.K.Bennett ‘Efina’ Lace Dress

There was lots of late night chats over rosé, sharing stories and speaking about things only a fellow blogger would just ‘get’. It was so much fun to re-visit living in a share apartment with a great friend (ahhh, sometimes I miss my early 20’s). Next week I’ll be bringing you more from NYFW, sharing outfits and trend forecasts – so stay tuned for all the insider info!

Of course, when you’re in New York for a few weeks shopping is inevitable. I thought I’d share a few things I’ve fallen in love with and just had to have…

Numero uno on my lust list? Guys, this perfume, Beach Walk from Replica by Maison Margiela, is incredible. There’s nothing that makes me feel prettier or more refreshed than a spritz of gorgeous fragrance. As soon as I smelt this one, I loved it and couldn’t stop thinking about it for days! Obviously, I had to go back and get it. The Replica by Maison Margiela collection is pretty special.  Each scent is created based on incredible moments in real life and the fragrances are just as blissful and true as the memory-evoking description. I also can’t stop thinking about this one called ‘By The Fireplace‘… it’s beyond beautiful – so moody and warm, it is the perfect scent for winter.

Speaking of cooler weather, I’m so excited for fall fashion! I’ve been loving all the amazing scarves (there’s nothing cozier than a big scarf), over-the-knee boots, stylish coats and distressed denim that have just landed at my favorite place to shop (they have everything and ship worldwide for free!). You can see all the new season arrivals here!
