What I Wore Today...

So here we have it - my first ever outfit post, motivated by a desire to share my recent purchases with an audience that consists of more than just my carpet and wardrobe. My face looks even more like a bread roll than usual but I'll just blame it on the fact that I'd been up since 5am. Here's Jian Wei's little 'front garden' in London, he's got some serious weeding to do - look at all the dandelion clocks!

I bought this coat about three years ago for a fiver in Save The Children when charity shopping with my mum. It lay dormant on my clothes rail for a good two years before I really grasped how to wear it and now it is a spring and autumn staple. I love the burnt orange colour and the double breasted 1960s shape.

Today I travelled FIRST CLASS to London, as I managed to get £22 ticket... At the cost of travelling at 6:35am. Naturally we had to spend the whole day in bed to make up for my 5am wake up call although we're planning a busy day tomorrow to make up for it. I think we're going to Carnaby Street for a spot of shopping, possibly popping in to Liberty and I've also got a roll of film from my Holga 35mm camera to develop, so watch this space!
