Crème de la crème.

Crème de la crème sweater: c/o WearAll. Jack Wills blouse: £4.50, via charity shop. Asos petite Ridley jeans: £30. Vintage Bally boots: £8, via charity shop (similar). Missguided fedora: £15. Rimmel lipstick. Mavala nail varnish.

As far as obscure Saturday activities go, heading to a quaint village set on the banks of the Blackwater estuary to watch a carnival of sorts has got to be up there, but the difference sure did make a welcome change from hurried walks between Liverpool Street and Old Street. So, one free Saturday morning we headed off to see what the Maldon Carnival was all about - via a Mr Whippy, of course! Minus the one Rio-themed group, this is a far cry from Notting Hill's annual effort, and instead focuses on what the local community's been up to recently, so cue cute dogs and rugby lads which isn't a bad thing in my eyes. Finish things off with a brie and bacon sandwich (my favourite, for the record), and it wasn't half a bad day for one we'd stumbled across when browsing through the local paper that morning.

In true foolish style, I decided to ignore the nice weather and wear my new crème de la crème sweater. I knew I had to pick it up the moment I saw it on Jennie (who's blog you need to check out now!), and I am purposefully going to ignore that the accents are the wrong way round because it's so perfect, and a darn sight cheaper than the Whistles one I adore. Let's just say, at least I'll be ready for when the temperatures suddenly drop.
