LFW. Sorry about the radio silence guys! We arrived in Stockholm last Monday and after an intense week of meetings and trying to squeeze in dinners with as many friends as possible, I came down with a cold. We were originally supposed to head back to NY this morning but decided to extend our stay with two weeks and I’m super excited to get to spend some more time in my hometown.

P.S. Will be uploading some new things on my sale shop today as my new purchase left a gigantic hole in my wallet, stay tuned!

I didn’t know it then, but over the years it has become one of my favorite coats (tied first place with this stunning ivory one from Emerson Fry) and I’m so happy I didn’t leave it on the rack when I saw the insane line to the register at Zara that day, definitely worth queuing 30 minutes for!
