Outfit Post: Hopped up out of bed...

This time last week I was in Central Park, reading ELLE with a hangover. Swiftly followed by a Shake Shack double cheeseburger, cheese fries and a large lemonade. Because of my sadness at not still being in New York, and because jet lag has decided to smack me sqaure in the face, today I have no energy for anything other than an outfit post. Please excuse my face, curly hair and glasses. I feel pretty grim.

I bought this t-shirt in Madewell in Soho. It's part of the Alexa Chung collection, which is quite ironic as I've never been a big fan of Chungy. I still think she looks like she needs to eat a big fat sandwich but I do love most of the Alexa Chung for Madewell pieces. This tea dress in particular is pretty much to die for. Alas, it was slightly out of my price range. I'd seen this bat t-shirt on the website before we went on holiday and had coveted it but, as it was sold out online, I figured there was no chance of me getting it. In store the only one I could see was on a mannequin. Thank the lord that I was on holiday with a pushy gay who insisted the sales assistant undress the mannequin for me. Hurrah!

I wore these Topshop shorts on our big NYC night out. We went out raving to a couple of gay clubs on the Saturday night and met a fabulous gay hairdresser who, along with his amazing friend (who likes Are You Being Served? - everything)  proceeded to show us the sights and pay for the whole night. It was the most incredible night ever and one I'll never forget.

T-shirt - Alexa Chung for Madewell
Shorts - Topshop
Tights - M&S
Boots - Dr Martens
Cardigan - Zara
Face - Jetlag and a brutal cold

That outfit is fabulous! I wish I had a pair of little shorts and I'd copy it. You really do put together some inspiring combos. I am so boring in my jeans and hoodies. I just have no sense of style.

Particularly like your boots!

Gay clubs always make for a fun night out! I've not looked at the Alexa Chung/Madewell collection yet, definitely gonna take a look since that's a pretty cool t-shirt. Boots are awesome too, can't believe they're docs!
Love your blog btw :)

Lucky, lucky lady! It seems going to NYC with a gay guy is the best (and cheapest!) way to see the city? Duly noted! x
