Top – ASOS / Jeans – Topshop / Shoes – eBay

Yesterday my friend Ruth and I spent the day in the city. The plush Hoxton Hotel in Shoreditch played host to a shopping extravaganza called ‘The Stylist’s Rail’, featuring rails of clothing put together by 20 top London stylists. Cocktails were pouring and music was live whilst we browsed the rails picking up some funky vintage pieces. I picked up two things, I will share these with you soon.

We did a lot of walking and I have to say, these shoes only started to rub at the end of the day! These shoes are my eBay babies! They were around £30 and took about 3-4 weeks to arrive all the way from Hong Kong, but they are worth the wait. I cant describe my love for chunky shoes. If they resemble a little ugliness even better. I’m not really one for ‘dainty’ shoes so these tick all my desirable shoes boxes!

I first saw these jeans a few weeks back, I loved them, but I just thought they were too girly for me. After seeing everyone else wearing them, I couldn’t resist and I caved in. There is no other way to wear these jeans without going pastel mania, and that is what I did. Teaming the Topshop Aloha jeans with my ASOS high neck pastel blue top made me feel like a real girly girl! They are hard to get hold of now, but if you can get your hands on them, make sure you do as they will be the perfect summery jeans.

My black bag has been a staple to every outfit since the sun went in last year. It was time to change it up. Scrambling around in my bag stash, I completely forgot I had bought this gorgeous tan bag in Greece a few years ago! I never really used it before but boy o boy I love it all over again.

Now, let’s talk about these houses, if anyone lives in them, who are they? What do they do? How do you live here? Who? What? When? Why? How?! I’ve never seen anyone go in or out of these beautiful homes. My main question is, what job must you have to live here? I’d love to be nosey and have a look around inside. If I got let in, I wouldn’t leave. All I need is a small bedroom, a large wardrobe and that’s about it. Please?

Forget April showers, the weather has been feeling like summer is on its way the last few days! It makes me so happy feeling the warm sun on your skin. You are welcome all the time Mr sunshine! Especially for the long Easter weekend next week.

Let me know what you think about the pastel mania outfit! Have you got yourself some Aloha jeans?
