For me, there’s nothing easier than slipping into a white on white, or in this case, cream on cream ensemble – it’s the shooting in flats part that I’ve always seemed to struggle with even though I live in them. I paired these with my find of the season – a pair of cream trousers by Chloe with a remarkable 90% off. 90% off!

If you ever find yourself in New York with a day to spare (I would like to say this is possible but I’d be worried if you had nothing to do in New York), then jump on a bus and make a day trip to the Woodburn Common Premium Outlets. You’ll find stand alone stores for Balenciaga, Celine, Oscar De La Renta, Celine, Prada, Barney’s New York, etc, all bursting with discounts averaging around the 30-50% off mark. Some pieces are a season old and others still range in the thousand dollar mark given the designers name, but it’s worth taking a look and seeing what you can find hidden at the back of the racks. I walked out with two pairs of Chloe trousers, a Balenciaga sculptured knitted jumper and (current season) black pencil skirt, and a Samsonite suitcase. It was definitely worth braving the snow for the day, even just for the precious time spent on the road with my dear friend Liam. Nothing like a good road trip to end my stay in New York…
