Made of Stone





Skirt - American Apparel
Belt - Vintage Moschino
Shoes - Office
How much does it feel like the middle of July at the moment? Yesterday everyone was out in their sandals, shorts and vests – very exciting!! Hopefully it lasts all weekend as I plan to spend much of the Easter break out doors. I bought these shoes a while back but thought today was the perfect day to get them out, being peep toe sandals and all! I debated over flatforms for a while but when I saw this pair in office I bit the bullet. Although, I do feel a bit like I am walking on two bricks and they don’t give your legs that extra special look a five inch heel does, but they are comfortable.

I have to share the amazing experience I had the other night with you. I listened to the album playback of Explosions in the Sky at the Planetarium, in the Royal Observatory, in Greenwich. Words can not describe how beautiful it was and I doubt I’ll experience anything similar, anytime soon.

Anyway, back to reality and work although not long until the long weekend. On Saturday I am going to Portobello Market for the first time (yes, I’ve lived here for three years and never been – crazy!) I also plan to learn how to ride my bike. It’s the cutest little bike with a wee basket and a bell. I’m going to practise up the park and then maybe hit the main roads and dodge some buses! Wish me luck!!

  1. loving the outfit today! Definitely embracing the lovely weather!!!
    I cant believe you have never been to portabello market!! I live in deepest darkest devon and even Ive been a couple of times! haha.
    I really want a bike too - but I'm scared about riding on the roads (even though these country roads aren't half as scary as london ones!) Your bike sounds cute!!
    enjoy the sunshine lovely!

  13. Ahh I'd love to own a beautiful bike with a basket but I wouldn't get away with it here; too many dodgy paths, would be a pain! London would be great. Listening to some of Explosions in the sky at the moment, so light on the ears; beautiful. I love the atmosphere at gigs, you feel like you're going to burst with all the excitment!

    That's a fantastic belt also! Lucky girl!! x
