OOTD and Camden Jaunt

Sun! I'm so happy to see a bit of sun. It really affects my mood (but unfortunately makes me want to avoid work, ah well, swings and roundabouts).

Today the bf and I went on a little walk to Camden Town.

Here is what I wore

I love this floral dress from Topshop. It was around £40 before christimas, but I got it in the sale for around £25-pretty bargainous I think! It's a strapless dress with a little heart shape hole in the back. This is also the first time that I have got my (pasty white) legs out this year. And my perilously high wedges. I had a fair few wobblefalls on the walk there.

I also wore my Topshop super round glasses that I spoke about in yesterday's Youtube video. Whaddya think? Quite like them myself actually :) Think they would look good with a beanie hat and jeans. Or a long white floaty dress and floral headband. Not sure the bf is too keen, but there we go.

Camden itself was buzzing, which gave it a lovely holiday feel (even if it was crazybusy in the market!) It was actually lovely to see people milling about and generally having a nice time.


I did something mean in Starbucks, and am feeling a bit bad about it. My bf was sitting down at a table outside whilst I went to buy some drinks. As it was busy, someone came to sit down in the chair next to us and tried to share our tiny table. When I came back, I let them keep the chair, but moved the table closer to us. I hate sitting too close to other people in restaurants/coffee shops and we had the table first! Bit selfish I know :( Whoops. Not frequenting church anymore, this is my alternative to confession ;) Do you forgive me?

We also went to Cybercandy, the fantastic sweets shop that sells confectionery from all over ze globe. Like Hershey's kisses and Mountain Dew (sadly they didn't have any diet Mountain Dew, otherwise I would have loaded up!) We spotted a beer that had a woman that looked like me on the bottle, though you can really see here. The girl looks a bit quizzical/stupid and the drink is called So-duh (as in duh, you fool and soda drink-clever, huh?)

I also bought two gorgeous dresses from a stall in Camden market. This is a nice orangey dress with a little cat print on it. Will go nicely with my coraley orange Topshop lipstick in 'Charmed' methinks.

The cat print up close.

The second is a muddy green colour with ladies and gentlemen with umbrellas printed on it! Different, but a little bit cute.


So all in all a lovely day! I should be getting on with a bit of work (not faiiiiiiiir) and then tonight we're meeting some friends and going to a lovely little veggie restaurant called 'The Gate' in Hammersmith.

Hope you're all enjoying the sun :) xx
