This weekend was the Chinese New Year, so I headed to Chinatown to celebrate the year of the dog with milk tea and red bean buns. (OK, so maybe not the most traditional for the Spring Festival, but they’re some of my favourite foods from when I visited China.)
THE OUTFIT Top: ASOS Jeans: ASOS Necklace: Suzywan, past season Bracelet: Whistle & Bango Watch: Nixon, past season Ring: wedding ring Bag: Mango, past season Shoes: Kurt Geiger, past season I’ve got a thing for floaty white tops, and ruffly tops of an oversized style are stealing the show for me at the moment. I wore …
Jeff and I recently celebrated four (!!!) years together, and to mark the occasion we treated ourselves to afternoon tea at Sketch.
I love it when my American friends visit London, and recently my friend Jacky (who I’ve known since 2005 – two thousand and five!!) was here for a few days between other UK adventures. Not about to miss a chance to catch up, I ended up spending an entire weekend traipsing around with her.
Any excuse to dress up is an excuse I’m willing to take, and Saturday night dinner is always a good one! Recently for a night out I channeled my inner 1970s for a look featuring fringe on fringe with fringe (i.e. bangs, for my American friends)!
Spring in London is always a solid combination of it’s too warm for a jacket in the sunshine and it’s freezing in the shade. So for a recent Sunday lunch date with a friend I layered up with a cami, ripped jeans, trainers and a denim jacket, polished off with a topknot to hide the two-day-old hair.
This is a weekend or casual office look with white jeans by ASOS, a red floaty top by Zara, black heeled boots, classic black leather jacket and a leopard print handbag.
Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day, and on Sunday Jeff and I popped over to The Spoke in Islington, North London, to treat ourselves to a hot breakfast before rolling up our sleeves for a day of spring cleaning.
I’m really excited for spring – and warmer weather! – so I’ve started to go through my wardrobe to put together outfits to wear when the weather is right. First up: this simple monochrome look.
