Meatpacking

1W0B80311W0B80741W0B8037 1W0B8049 1W0B8051 1W0B8053 1W0B8063e When I'm exploring for the day you will not find me in heels. Shock, horror, I know. Instead, you'll find me in the flattest of flats, loose trousers and some sort of upper garment that provides ample ventilation. Even if it looks like I'm just wearing a bandana tied around my torso. I was obsessed with finding cobblestone streets for at least one of my shoots in New York. There are just some things I obsess over finding for Miss Jones that may not resonate with a lot of other people. (Yes, I get excited over big stones laid in an organised pattern.) When I typed the words "cobblestone streets new york" in Google the search results went along the lines of "needle in a haystack" or "good luck finding them" and it only further fuelled my desire. (We did find a few Downtown, but I really wanted an excuse to visit another, less busy area.) Thankfully I have a husband who understands, and worse, encourages these little fixations and we ended up spending the afternoon dissecting the Meatpacking District one little, romantic, stony street at a time.

It's refreshing when you wake up in the morning on a vacation with your entire selection of clothes laid before you. These pants literally got delivered the day I left for New York and when my jeans looked tired and I couldn't justify wearing them another day unwashed, these green crepe babies saved my legs. A trip to American Apparel in Brooklyn the day before and my first time inside a J.Crew store (All very American, I know) lead to the rest of the contents in my suitcase being left to serve another day or...another completely crazy hunt for Miss Jones.
