Not the Mini as in short skirt or cute car… The Minnie as in pants…
I’ll come to that…
New York, like London, is a city for walking.
The way to take it all in.
Assault the senses, breath it in… engage until there is no more puff.
Yes… totally and utterly exhausting but also, totally and absolutely stimulating.
I figure I can sleep when I am surrounded by the familiar.
I am fortunate that I have always been a high energy individual… Some would call me exhausting. I prefer to think of it as… enthusiasm.
Observation is one of life’s great pleasures… so when I walk, I observe.
This trip to New York didn’t visualise as I imagined. I thought I would be snapping fashion and street style.
I didn’t … I got hung up on the architecture.
Fell in love with exterior staircases, with iron work… with unfamiliar paint colours and construction details… and in deeply, madly with skyscrapers.
More about those later.
All this walking meant easy dressing and comfort.
That’s where Minnie came in… she is the light weight version of the Pixie.
Just right for spring and summer wear.
The Minnie, like the Pixie, is the most comfortable and flattering pair of pants I have… and the best value.
They walked all over New York, they sat with me at dinner and they were in great shape the next morning.
Looking good and working with everything.
I know that pants are just pants… fashion is just fashion… but when comfort, fashion and looking good work well together… life does free up, xv.
