Candy Stripes and Jelly Shoes

Tee - Lazy Oaf
Shorts - eBay
Bag - Cheapo Market
Sandals - Juju 
The weather was glorious on Saturday! I took the opportunity to go to Hyde Park in the sun for a wee picnic. I live in London and I don't really take that much advantage of places like Hyde Park so it was lovely to see some greenery.


My tee is so so pretty. I've wanted it for such a long time and finally managed to add it to my wardrobe after visiting the Lazy Oaf sample sale. The prices at the sale were amazing but I only treated myself to two pieces. There were so many more pieces I could have purchased, but I had to limit myself. The actual sale was crazy, people went mental! At one point I made the mistake of crouching down to the lower rail to look at skirts and getting stuck due to the sheer amount of people trying to push into the top rail. It was worth it to get this cutie though. You can find this top in the Lazy Oaf sale at the moment.

Grounded Cafe East London

I thought it might be nice to introduce a coffee shop that has opened recently near my house. It's called  'Grounded' and it is located right neat Aldgate East Station just near the bottom of Brick Lane. Which is perfect really if you're shopping on Brick Lane and want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the main strip.

The decor is really cute and has an almost outdoorsy feel to it with the big doors open and the wooden tables. There are plenty of plug sockets around too plus wifi which means it would be a great place to sit and blog or get on with a little bit of uni work. I love the green theme and think it would be pretty relaxing to get some work done there, though I'm yet to venture there with my laptop.
I had this delicious chocolate cake when I first visited, it was very tasty, a little too rich for me but that depends on your view of chocolate cake. I washed it down with a delicious smoothie which was yummy but a little smaller than your average smoothie portion. My friend opted for a chai latte and was quite the fan, from what I've heard the coffee is delicious. I unfortunately don't like coffee, I apparently still have the palette of a 5 year old as my favourite is hot chocolate.

In an ideal world for me coffee shops should offer things like cookies and flapjacks - cakes and pastries are ever so popular but you can't beat a good flapjack!

Anyway I hope you Londoners have potentially found a new place to visit.

Fluffy Bag And A Cow Print Skirt

Jacket - Vintage Store (Selling on Depop)
Tee - Primark
Skirt - Zara
Boots - ASOS
Bag - The Ragged Priest

Can we just all thank The Ragged Priest for bringing us such a wonderfully fluffy bag into our lives? I got this baby via ASOS. It is so cute it's ridiculous really! It looks so pretty, unlike my wet, just got out the shower so lets tie it in a bun, hair I've got going on. I'm lazy and really CBA with blow drying my hair for your eyes benefit. I go out like this fairly regularly to be honest, not so chic but what the hell.

I paired the bag with two of my all time favourite pieces, my beautiful cow print skirt and the comfiest boots from ASOS. I'm not entirely convince that it matches but this is what I wore to a little trip to brick lane for a lunch time treat and a hangover cure in the case of my boyf.

On a final note, my denim jacket I have decided to part with - sheds a tear. I mean I have another so I'm not going totally denim free but if you like it you can find it on my depop here.

Printed Socks - Accessory Essential

Fruity Multipack   //   Dinosaur   //   Cow Print   //   Banana Print   //   Sheep Multipack   //   Spiderman   //   Monochrome Multipack   //   Watermelon Print   //   Evil Eye   //   Floral Pom Pom   //   Clueless Print



For those of you that have been following my blog for a while you may know that I love printed socks. I even love the apparent fashion faux pas or socks and sandals. With the weather warming up it is the perfect time to refresh my sock collection for my sock/sandal shenanigans.




These are just a small selection of the wonderful socks I found online! If I posted them all I think you'd get a touch bored.

Are you ladies a fan of the printed sock?
