Bryant Park

Week 24: Candy Shop. Cute December Look.

Winter style pompomlondon hat with fur.

One of my personal favourite colours to wear during cold winter months is white (and very light shades of cream!). White and cream pair especially well with a delicious palette of coffee colours, from rich mocha brown to lighter shade of chai latte, and with the "royal baby" colours: duck blue and princess pink. There is something about those colour combos that oozes confidence, old European class and noble chic. 

For this classic winter look I opted for a light pastel blue jacket from DressLilly (Click HERE for discount coupons), complementary super warm wool sweater I ave had for ages, white jeans and my new winter staple, a Pom Pom London hat with cute fur pompom.

As for winter boots, I cheated on my over the knee high heeled boots selection and fell in love with these SUPER warm and EXTREMELY comfy Amber Miles from Hush PuppiesBest thing about them is that they give me those extra cm's in height, and I can wear them for hours every day.

Week 18: Summer in NYC. Wearing 'Rosegal' in Bryant Park.

Rosegal online store review by NYC Blogger.

It's the last two weeks of August and I’ve decided to have a 'Summer in NYC'  theme on the blog. I usually have pretty specific themes on Pastiche.Today, inspired by iconic films or glamorous actresses, but this week I am going to share my more casual everyday looks, write about my life in The Big Apple (including what it is like to live in hotels full time!), and share tips on what to see and what to do in one of the greatest cities in the world.

Nyc's loveliest park - Bryant Park.

Everyone knows how gorgeous Central Park is, but there are over 1,700 parks and playgrounds across the five boroughs of New York City. One of my favourites to visit is Bryant Park. The park itself is not big, but it has a lot to offer: free yoga classes, jazz concerts, poetry readings and much more. I especially love that you can play board games for absolutely FREE in the park. Ben and I played the Game of Life last time we were there. Yes, the board games are often not in the best condition, but it is still amazing that you can come and have a great time playing with your friends.

I wore this pretty Rosegal off-the-shoulder top with white J.Crew shorts to the park to meet up with my friend Agnes, who also took these photos of me (thank you, girl!). This is my first package from Rosegal, but I am pleasantly surprised by how good quality the clothes are, considering they are AMAZINGLY affordable.

There is the gorgeous Bryant Park Cafe and Grill in the park, but my friend Agnes and I decided to try the celebrated Mille Crêpes at Lady M. The cafe is very minimal in decor, but has an decadent dessert menu. We ordered the Green Tea Mille Crêpes and Coconut Mille Crêpes. To be honest, I think the idea of the crêpes-cake sounds much more delicious than it actually tastes. We both felt that the cakes were too sweet, and even though I loved the first few bites of my cake, I couldn't even finish half of it! 

I think I might have to return to the Lady M soon to try their other desserts because they all looked so mouthwatering.
