mellow yellow

zara heeled sandals (similar here)
topshop croc faux leather tote bag (last year)
primark sunglasses (ONLY £2!)
nomination composable bracelet 

so i seem to have developed quite the obsession with yellow recently. last year it was burnt orange so it obviously must be summer just brings out the colourful side of me; as in winter you normally find me draped in head to toe black. so just incase you didn't guess, i was in london last week. myself and the lovely rachael (who you can find blogging at www.beautypea.com) drove two 5 hour journeys in the space of 36 hours and boy was it tiring but equally as worth it! the only negative is that there just wasn't enough time and has left me longing to live there more than ever. there's something about the sense of rush constantly that i love and crave to be amongst coming from such a quiet and boring area. we did plan on trying to blog at least three outfits whilst we were there, but we had no time between arriving at the hotel and getting ready to the ASOS event which we travelled down for. so down in shoreditch where we were staying we found an alley to snap some shots and guess who only went and bloomin' walked behind me... alex from made in chelsea! i do have photographic evidence which you can look at here. he was on his phone so it felt rude to ask him to stop and take a photograph with us but ah man it was such a surreal experience. anyway i really love this outfit it's one of my favourites at the moment. i'm definitely into stripes big time.

  6. I love that blouse, the sleeves are lovely! London is so exciting but when I was growing up there I definitely didn't make the most of it! Really took it for granted. x
