Good morning friends and co, I've been a bit quiet this week madly preparing for holiday (YES) and organising work and financial things (NO) and also dealing with a bit of a flare up, but that just means I get more time in bed blogging now, so meh. Anyway today's post is a bit of a mixture of things! I realised most of the outfits I've posted on here are when I've been dressed up to go out somewhere exciting and there aren't quite as many actual 'everyday' looks. So, taking it right back to basics today (with what I was wearing when I realised that) with my super lazy, comfy, working-from-home-and-eating-all-day stretchy casuaaaals. I ended up wearing this out to Dinerama in the evening but I figured I'd want to still be wearing my loose stretchy clothing incase of any potential food babies.
I wore it with my go-to food baby leggings, a splash of colour (and warmth) with my baked bean beanie hat, my Beyond Retro gold elephant bag to match the top and necklace, a tartan scarf, and a big comfy vintage jumper for when it got colder later on - and I was good to go. And, good to eat. Or so I thought...
I know, I've been complaining a lot on here lately (sorry) but I think it's just me getting sort of tired of London living (and also regretting eating something that upset my delicate stomach so much - my own fault). Yes I know, I should be super grateful to live here and truly I am, but I'm just craving somewhere a little bit quieter but where there's still lots happening and still a lot of creative, fun people around. Somewhere like Brighton, or Bristol, just a bit less London-y... Anyway, to be fair Dinerama did have a pretty fun vibe and I fell in love with the beautiful decor and setting, as always. The bars were also serving up some exciting cocktails, the food selection just wasn't as great as the Dalston Yard counterpart a couple of years ago. But if you've never been, it really is fun and a little bit unusual for a chilled night out with some friends and drinks, and there were still some old favourite stalls there like Yum Bun and Bleecker St Burgers which are most definitely worth a taste.
Enjoy some photos of me and mini me posing around Shoreditch like tourists, despite spending time here every week for the past couple of years. That's one of the reasons I love Shoreditch though, every time I go (even if it's just been a few days since the last visit) there is ALWAYS something new and exciting to see.
