blue polka dot culottes: Dorothy Perkins
black crop jumper: H&M
spotty tights: Boots
rosary peace sign necklace: Dorothy Perkins
black slipper loafers: c/o Mr Shoes

It's been a bloody long day. This is what I wore to go to London today to get my Vietnam visa. I decided to have a good old mooch around too as I might as well have: I purchased some bits in H&M and Forever 21, walked along Embankment, read my Kindle in the Victoria Towers garden by the Houses of Parliament for a couple of hours, dropped into Harrods to get some lunch, and later on met up with the wonderful Robyn for dinner at Bella Italia and a catch-up session.

I'm now working six-day weeks for the next few weeks so this probably wasn't the most ideal way to spend my day off (I. Am. Knackered.) but it was fun all the same. I decided to wear in my new loafers as well, which probably wasn't the best of ideas. I chose them because I thought they had a lovely slipper-like quality to them compared to more conventional loafers. Hello Grandmother! Despite having to whack on a blister plaster, I can tell we're going to get along just swell...

Here we both are on the tube

With some leaves

In the park
