You Knock Me Off Of My Feet

I feel like this is 'me' summed up in the outfit and something I intend to recreate time and time again now it's starting to warm up. Well hopefully, I hope that dreaded rain isn't returning for a little while! I got these sandals and skirt as part of my Westfield challenge and they've already become staples in my wardrobe. Everyone needs some nude sandals in their life. These are comfortable enough to wear all day and also look great if you're popping to the pub in the evening to help you look like you've made an effort. Win win situation!

I spent today in London being treated to an amazing blow dry (review coming this week so keep an eye out) and finally sampled the delights of Pizza Pilgrims with one of my favourite people. We spent the day drooling over things in Michael Kors we can't afford and catching up over a few ciders in a couple of Covent Garden pubs. It was nice to just wander around with no times to follow and soak up London in the sunshine. The city is always so beautiful in the sun!
