Oh I do like a good wander around pretty places in London, I just don’t get to do it enough! Every time I come ‘down into Central’ from where I live to the North, I always get frustrated that I don’t go into the shops more and don’t wander the cobbles streets more because when I do, I’m super inspired! It seems there always needs to be an excuse as it is quite far away, and my reason on this occasion was a goodun’ in my eyes. I decided an appropriately colourful outfit was needed! My Asos blazer which I got for xmas has saved my previous yearning for a pink jacket and these slouchy teal trousers are such a good colour and fabric! I’m wearing these cut loafers in a lot too since I saw them at the Tesco showroom. I’m happy to say I now have a leopard print shoe in almost every style!

Back to the location – I was going to tea at Ladauree with a delightful friend – Marielle plus her fascinating boyfriend Jostein and her highly amiable and ever-smiling friend Froy. They are such an enchanting team, I really do admire each of them for their wonderful ways! Carrie joined me too on my first ever excursion to Ladauree (now this really deserves a slap seeing as I am half French!) but we couldn’t just go for macaroons,  we made the most of it and took snaps of course! Here are the ones I did of her and these are the ones she took of me – A day of Friendship indeed!

    I really just love how you always dress in bright sunny colors! If I was a pedestrian and I saw you walking by, you would just make me smile so much! Who could be sad wearing colors like these?
