Stepping into Spring

Here in London spring is probably the most awkward season - fashion wise. The weather during spring is always identical to the weather during the winter, if not colder, which means there are no pretty floral skirts or denim shorts entering my wardrobe anytime soon. Although the colours for sure get brighter and more cheerful, we get to start entering pinks, yellows and florals back into are colour palette (lets pretend 'floral' is colour, haha). 

Shoes are maybe the only thing that change during this season; ballet pumps begin to be able to be worn without your feet freezing off and espadrilles come back into season, yay !!

This is my "Spring Shoe Wishlist"

Valentino Rockstud's

  • These are my absolute all time dream shoes (well valentino's in general) but for this spring/summer season they came out with these pastel edition 'watercolour rockstud ballerina pumps'. Pastel colours !! They have my name written all over them, haha.      

Zara 'Slip ons'
  • Last autumn I got leopard print slip ons from Zara and they quickly became an essential in my wardrobe, then when I was browsing the website recently I saw they had all new ones in stock and I fell in love with these metallic 'champagne' colour slips ons. They are perfect for spring - especially here where the weathers still lacking in any type of heat.

Chanel Espadrilles 
  • Every year Chanel brings out a slightly different design of espadrilles, and every year I fall crazy and deeply in love with every pair I see. This year as part of the Chanel cruise 2015 collection they bought out these gorgeous suede brightly coloured espadrilles which I have (like I said before) obviously fallen in love with. I mean… how amazing are they !!

Zara Booties
I'm not crazy about booties, but every now and then I will see a pair and be instantly in love with them. This happened to be the case with this pair. As you can see they are suede (I must be really loving this suede trend at the moment) and they are the prettiest sky blue colour. 

  • I have a love hate relationship with Tods - during spring and summer I love them I think they are the cutest shoes and are aways at the top of my wish list yet in the autumn and winter season they just don't appeal to me as much (weird, I know). Yet, I saw these gorgeous lilac pair online and as you can guess I fell in love with them.

Well, I hope you like some of my favourite shoes at the moment, comment any of your 'wish list shoes' for spring. A girls always gotta be lusting over new shoes. Always. 

(I think I slightly overused the phrase 'in love' during this blogpost, but I mean, that's what happens when you try describing your favourite shoes).

A Valentines day in London

Happy Valentines day lovelies !! I woke up to a cute "love u" cookie and a valentines edition box of guylians… from my mum that is, haha. 

Instead of sitting home watching sad, tear-jerking movies (which was one of my options) I decided to meet my cousin, Zoe, in London. Recently I had heard about a market called 'Maltby Street Market' which is a food market a little away from London bridge. So me and my cousin decided to give it a look at.

I had the best cheese toastie, EVER. It was from a stall called 'the cheese truck' and oh my god… it was mouthwatering!! In my haste to devour it I totally forgot to take a photo of it (a travesty - I know) but just take my word for it… best cheese toastie in London.

Me and Zoe also both got salted caramel brownies called 'Bad Brownies', let me tell you they are not bad. At all.

Enough talking about food, haha, after finishing off at the food market we decided as most of the day was still left we would get the bus to south bank where we went down some backroads and managed to get some cute outfit pictures. (as well as getting a Starbucks)

Jacket - New Look
Tshirt - Forever 21
Jeans - Topshop
Shoes - Zara
Bag - Balenciaga 
Drink - Starbucks (haha)

I had a lovely day with my cousin, it is always a fun time when seeing her. I hope everyone had a lovely day whether it was spent with your loves, friends or even on your own with Netflix and a nice pizza.

We can all be each others valentines !!
