not much of a trendster or a fashionista in the rarest form, i'm pretty content wearing jeans and a hoodie most days. i can't just 'roll out of bed, throw on whatever i see first' and look like i walked straight out of a vogue editorial. i decided to throw caution to the wind last thursday though and don some serious spring/summer trends. mixed prints? check. denim jacket? check. wooden clogs? check. ready to take on the world? check check check. british weather has decided to go all winter on our sorry bootys and as a result i had to bust out my opaques. i swore weeks ago (when the sun was shining feverishly) that i would not subject my pins to such entrapment until the autumn - sadly with temperatures getting ominously close to freezing that wasn't an option. i was totally unaware at the time that my miu miu inspired zara dress has developed a bit of a cult following in the blogger world. toni of the fashion cloud has put together a great post on all the people she's seen wearing it. honestly, i look at a lot of blogs - how did i not notice this?
photos by (in order of appearance): shini of park & cube, toni of the fashion cloud & jill of street style london. wearing: zara cat print dress, gap denim jacket, jigsaw striped top, turquise bracelet from egypt, moheda toffeln clogs, alexander mcqueen bag, chanel blue satin nail polish. oh, and i'm talking to the lovely iris of london fashion diary - but more on her, and the other bloggers i met at the sketchbook pop up shop, later.
