Needless to say, we loved it.
The weather had cooled down on our last day, so the perfect outing for a classic shirt, coat and trainers - my style staples. Even during Fashion Week mayhem, I am always preppy at heart, and feel most at ease in off-duty classics.
The Gant collection in House of Fraser is full of such classics, and I picked this camel coat to photograph against the brownstone Brooklyn buildings. I fitted right in. A camel coat is always a wardrobe essential and this fitted style is a great investment - and looks just as good with jeans and boots when the weather cools down.

There was just one moment where we felt out of our depth amongst hipsters - in the famous graffiti-strewn pizzeria 'Roberta's' in Bushwick - regularly filmed in 'Girls', blasting 90s hip hop and teenagers spilling onto the street with their takeaway pizza, and a 2 hour wait for a seat at 9pm...so we got takeaway and took it back to our flat for an early night. Sometimes you just need to know your limits.
