Winter warmers

DSC_0120-3 It hasn’t exactly been the coldest of winters so far in London, in fact it’s quite the opposite and it’s been mild all the way through December. But as usual January brings with it a bitter chill, and so I can’t help but try to wrap up and block out the cold. That’s what this outfit is all about: an attempt to stay warm without hiding the essence of the outfit under bundles of layers and scarves. Continue reading


Tea on the Green


Exams are finally over, so to celebrate I spent last weekend in Exeter with my boyfriend, Elliot. Having spent the last 3 weeks cooped up either in my uni house or the library I really needed a change of scenery, so I took it one step further and changed city instead. It was a weekend of relaxation with not a care in the world; just what I needed.

On Saturday afternoon we wandered into the city centre and had a wonderful lunch at Tea on the Green, a small establishment by Exeter Cathedral. It’s a beautiful setting, made even more beautiful by the sunny weather, and so we took the time to have a mini photoshoot on the green outside the cafe before the sun went down. I joined the white jeans crew over summer and thought I’d give them a little outing paired with my beloved roll neck jumper and pointed toe boots. You can probably tell from the photos how embarrassed I was trying and failing to pretend that I hadn’t asked Elliot to take pictures of me, but it’s all for the sake of the blog! I’m slowly overcoming my fear of awkward posing, and hopefully one day I’ll be a bit more of a pro. Thanks go to Elliot for the photos, and for making this weekend so wonderful!
