I Had To Ask Beatrice

new york street style
grey maxi skirt

Just by looking at the simplicity of her outfit topped off with a quirky flower I should’ve guessed that Beatrice was French.
I took this shot in the summer on a damp afternoon when Beatrice was wandering around in Topshop.  I coaxed her to come outside for a quick photo. She was clutching a pair of socks to purchase “Can you put these on hold?” I blurted out to an assistant standing nearby as I grabbed them from Beatrice and stuffed them in the assistant’s hand.
We popped out for a couple of photos and by the following day I was joining her after her emailed invite to Governor’s Island for The Parisian Ball.  Beatrice and her husband organized the event.  Click here to see what I wore for it. 
This look is easily translated to winter in a long thicker skirt and a slouchy knit jumper plus ankle boots (found a code for 30% off jumpers here code: Fall30).
ps. You can see pics of Beatrice and her husband on my couples only site where I met her the next day.  Her husband is just as stylish as she is.  Additional photos from the event of other couples included!
