Sick of me in this scarf yet? Too bad... that's what living out of a carry-on is all about. It's something I'm doing again for the next three weeks too, which is so uninspiring I can't even tell you. And this outfit is very much a carry-on leftovers outfit. However, I do kind of love this sweater, as cheap and synthetic as it is. I've been really loving Liebemarlene and her simple reworking of the same formula over and over this spring, so when she started wearing a loose cropped sweater, I knew I had to have one. I hadn't actually been to H&M for ages mainly because I don't want to be tempted into buying things regular price, but I just knew it would be the place to indulge my need of a trend, and it was.
So, this was my second to last day in New York, and in the afternoon we went to the Highline. A friend in my course in London had told me about this; it's essentially a raised avenue/park, built on the derserted tracks of the elevated train. A great use of abandoned space, a great way to get people out and sharing public space in a semi-social way, and generally a cool idea. There are even train tracks remaining, which have been converted into gardens, and people can stroll, or sit on deck chairs. Glad we made it over there.
