NYC. This past weekend has been one of the most fun, yet exhausting ones in a really long time. We’ve managed to move into our new apartment here in New York, squeeze in two trips to Ikea, assemble all the furniture + unpack all of our luggage, and even though we’re still nowhere near done decorating the apartment, it’s already starting to feel like home. Every morning when I wake up and look out the window I have to pinch myself in the arm, just to make sure I’m not dreaming, but we’re actually, finally, living here and I couldn’t be happier!

COAT Bimba & Lola. SUNGLASSES Céline. SWEATER Dagmar (here). BAG Proenza Schouler (here). JEANS Topshop. SHOES Stuart Weitzman.

Yesterday when we were shooting this amazing coat from Nanette Lepore I decided to do some jumping shots just for fun and ended up liking them so much that I decided to post them instead. Now the million dollar question is; how could it take me 7 years of blogging to discover the awesomeness of jumping photos, and how do we make it a permanent feature on the blog?!

NYC. My super talented friend Zanita snapped these pictures of me during the snowstorm that hit New York a couple of weeks ago and I absolutely love the moody light in them! Even though the city looks quite peaceful in these pictures I can assure you that was definitely not the case, and I’m pretty sure I was actually hoovering above the ground due to the strong winds at one point when we shot these photos. But you know what they say, no pain no gain, and I really love how the pictures turned out!
