Life lately has been a balancing act of cosying and glamming up.
I ventured to the Southbank to photograph an al-fresco fashion show, and took a few photos of London by night - such a tourist!
Last night was a girly outing to Nobu, but sometimes you can't beat an impromtu Sunday dinner round the corner. Our second meal at local Tota didn't disappoint, even if our first choices were sold out (will have to try going on a Saturday!) Massive ribs, nice wine and atmosphere, and no tube journey. Three words: Buttermilk Onion Rings.
A little longer in the planning, a wonderful wintery wedding last week back home, with a beautiful bride and glamorous friends I don't see nearly enough.
Digging out "nearly-new" clothes, (I have a habit of picking up winter bits at the end of the sale, and storing away for a surprise months later!) and mixing casual cosy tops with fancy accessories.
From top is a Whistles pencil skirt from last year (70% off!), a big chunky knit from Zara's summer sale, and a New Look checked shirt from years ago, but it's come back around! The Accessorize necklace and bag were a steal for my wedding outfit, but have been wearing back with plain knits for work.
Lastly an early Christmas gift, a Lancome travel palette for trips home and desk to dinner - shame it will still need to go into a sandwich bag every few months!
Last weekend was perfect for exploring, so ventured out of London with friends to Winkworth for traipsing through leaves and marvelling at nature, before a hearty pub lunch. Much needed before we amp up for friends visiting London next week- now what to do in the chilly city?
