A day of favourites, food and fashion

Outfit 10 November 2011

Wearing: LOL jumper, straight leg trousers and sequin slippers all from ASOS, pea coat from Topshop, leather bag from Next, Kate Moss for Rimmel lipstick in shade 1

Last Thursday I had a laid back – but equally action-packed – day off work, and Chris and I spent the best part of it on a 6 or 7-mile wander along the Thames, in my opinion the best thing to do in London, including a nosy at Somerset House’s ”20 Years of Dazed and Confused Magazine” and also their thought-provoking photography exhibition about the Amazon (did you know that every minute an area of rainforest the size of 3 football pitches is deforested?!).

With all of that walking I opted for an easy outfit, pairing my favourite trousers (yep you’ve already seen several times since I bought them last month) and my favourite comfortable but pretty flats with my favourite new jumper.

We also sampled Borough Market for the first time.  I restrained myself, leaving only with a gingerbread man, a fresh mango and orange juice, and a slab of the most delicious garlic and chive butter which we’ve steadily consumed over the past few days.  It was a wonderful experience and made even me, the Antichef, feel inspired to get in the kitchen; we’ll be returning.

In the evening I popped into Fluorescent PR’s SS12 press day (which I’ll post about soon) and a bloggers event hosted by Motel Rocks and Glossybox.  It was just the perfect day off, with the quintessential mix of exploration, enlightenment, food and fashion.

After a lovely weekend I have another busy week planned, which has me feeling both enervated and excited in equal measure, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.  I’m currently at F+F’s SS12 preview event (which is taking place in the Oxo Tower, seen in the last photo below) so I’ll be back to post about that soon!

Thanks for all of your lovely comments over the past week or so!  I’m sorry I’ve not had the chance to respond to most of them yet but I’ve been so busy; I plan to get back on top of it when I have time this week, along with reading over 200 new posts on Bloglovin’ – eek!
