Poohsticks...


I bought a snazzy DSLR yesterday when Mark and I were in Stratford and haven't been able to contain my excitement since. We decided to go for brunch today at a local 'gastropub' and decided to bring the new camera along to have a play around with it...




As ever, our meals were absolutely delicious; Mark had pancakes with maple syrup and crispy bacon and I chose a toasted muffin with smoked salmon, hollandaise sauce, poached eggs and spinach. I can honestly say that it was the most delicious breakfast I have ever had! Unfortunately it's not the healthiest, so we decided to go to the park to walk off some of the calories! 

I don't think I have ever jumped this high before!
Nor has Mark by the looks of things! 
Dress: Miss Selfridge, top: Zara via charity shop, cardigan: Dorothy Perkins boots: Peacocks, coat: c/o Tesco, hat: River Island.
This dress has proved so versatile; I wore it out dancing to my friends 21st birthday and yet it is so easy to layer up to wear during the day too. Not bad considering I paid the grand total of £6.30 for it! I am really going to miss my student discount when I graduate :( 


Cue pretentious photo #523. This hat is another to add to my rather substantial collection, it is warm, with ribbon, flowers and sequins, what more could I ask for?! 


Playing Pooh sticks, who needs LFW?! I have loved everyone's posts so far from  the shows but I think my favourite show by far has got to be Paul Costelloe, the shapes, colours and textures are gorgeous and I can see any of the pieces from his collection working in my wardrobe...now to win the lottery... 

Have you been at LFW? What's the most versatile piece in your wardrobe? 


P.P.S. If you want to see more photos, come and find me on Facebook :)

Yay on the new camera! I love how the photos came out.

Love the jumping pictures. I've tried to take those, but never can!

Maria said...

Milla- It was definitely both of those things! :D

Harriet- Thank you, there are quite a few funny outtakes of me jumping!

Abbie- Thank you, I really did! I think it's because it's on a bit of a slope but it is pretty impressive! :D
