Superstition ain't the way.

Vintage leather jacket: £17.50. Topshop patterned crop top: £24. Topshop oxblood skirt: £45. Hobbs boots: £40, via warehouse sale. Topshop textured bag: £25. Michael Kors sunglasses. Mum's necklace. Topshop lip gloss.

Look who's totally bought into the seventies. I may have been born twenty years too late, but the amount I listen to Stevie Wonder ought to make me an honorary fifty year old, even if only down to those trumpets. Take my favourite shades (warm tan, olive green and, obviously, oxblood), a pattern best seen on one of Oliver Tate's dad's shirts, my favourite oversized leather jacket and you've got yourself a combination I couldn't even try to resist.

This wasn't the only throwback of the day - and it wasn't even a Thursday! We popped along to Finchingfield, a quaint, rural village in the middle of bloody nowhere, famed for its pastel houses and listed buildings, with a duck pond and Tiptree tearoom thrown in for good measure. We celebrated the first of hopefully many sunny days with a slice of lemon drizzle over tea, and didn't even have any crumbs leftover to throw to the ducks, it was that good.

Isn't it amazing what you do when all the trains to London are cancelled?
