With the Christmas hump finally gotten over, the thought of wearing something dark and festive feels all too 2016. There’s nothing like a pastel coloured outfit to wake you up out of a rotating wardrobe of kitsch Christmas jumpers and PJs.
A sixties style jumper, soft cord trousers, a mint coloured coat and silver accessories are pretty much a quick ticket to feeling fresh in the run up to January. I wore this all-Boden look for breakfast at Snaps and Rye on Golborne Road with my brilliant Photographer friend Xanthe. Just outside was a flea market laid out on the kerb. After walking past four times, I spotted a pastel pink serving plate to match my outfit and nabbed it for a mere 50p.

Just down the road, Xanthe and I spotted colourful wall after colourful wall, perfect for obsessive Instagrammers like us. Want a primary coloured mosaic? There’s one just here. A pastel painted bridge? Right this way. Not only were there plentiful backgrounds but brilliant independent shops too. I could have bought the whole of the contents of Fez Bazaar and Les Couilles du Chien had us snooping in the windows (not only just for its intriguing name). Pop down to Golborne Road and you never know quite what you’ll bring home.
