OOTD: Orange Genie

The weather hasn't been too mad in London town this week so I decided to wear my sheer orange blouse for the first time when I went to church. I've had this top for a while now but strangely, I've had no clue how to wear it. I finally decided to stop over-thinking it and I went for a simple look with jeans and paired it with my turban as the wind was acting up (yet again!).

Fern ring: Dorothy Perkins
Plain band: H&M
Stone ring: Miss Selfridge
Nail varnish: Barry M "Berry Ice-cream"

Sheer orange blouse: New Look
Jeans: (some shop in America)
Black wedges: (New Look)
Bag: Ted Baker
Blazer: Talbots
Headscarf: Primark
Earrings: Accesorize

I need to learn how to take better pictures. I always look cheesy smiley or just plain awkward. Time to get my "smizing" on methinks! Hope you're all having a lovely day.

Love, life and lipgloss

Paris when it sizzles...

It was my friend Madeline's birthday a couple of weeks ago and to celebrate, a few of us decided to take a day trip to beautiful Paris. It was a lovely, relaxed day and it was just what the doctor ordered. "When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life" said Samuel Johnson so I must be damned tired of life! I just needed a break from the doom and gloom so I was happy to be bundling myself onto the Eurostar at 7-something in the morning.

 The title of my post is a blatant lie as the weather was horrendous! Gale-force winds were the order of the day but we still managed to enjoy ourselves. I guess I'll have to wait till next time for my Audrey Hepburn-esque sizzling Paris adventure. I've been to France several times but I'd never done the touristy thing in Paris before so it was nice to be one for the day.

I guess absence really does make the heart grow fonder as I was very happy to see my London again in the evening. Say what you like about Londoners but Parisians make Londoners look like the most polite people in the world! (I'll say no more....)
