O, woe is me to have seen what I have seen, see what I see.

Denim jacket: £63, NW3 by Hobbs. Baseball tee: free, American Apparel. Joni jeans: £32.40, Topshop. Anna boots: £76.50, Topshop. Satchel: Stylistpick. Watch: gift, Rotary. Ralph Lauren sunglasses: c/o Sunglasses Shop. Necklace: vintage. Rings: F21, vintage, gift, and c/o The Bohemian Collective. Lipstick: Ravishing, MAC.

I remember writing this post last summer and saying how weird it was to wear double denim. Oops, I did it again. This time it's a bit less floral, and maybe a bit more High School Musical(?). I caved and bought another pair of Joni jeans when feeling a bit reckless a couple of days after my loan came in, and couldn't help but pair it with my trusty, well-worn Hobbs denim jacket (that was another rash decision, but we'll ignore that). I'm still not sure of my stance regarding double denim, but it's quite good for the temperamental weather.

I wore this on Saturday when I visited Stratford-upon-Avon with the English Society to see Hamlet. Obviously the highlight of the trip was eating peanut butter cups on the coach (I jest), but we also popped into the Hathaway Tea Rooms for lunch after wandering round the blustery town centre. Compared to Twelfth Night last year, Hamlet was a darker affair, with skulls being thrown off the stage, and poison turning into a woman wearing disco pants. Oh, Shakey! It was worth the odd coach driver, at least, and I'm determined to go to the Globe in London at some point.

But back to the twenty-first century, I've got a few items up on ebay, so if you could have a browse I'd really appreciate it!

It's only teenage wasteland.

Checked dress: £18.75, Forever 21. Denim Jacket: £63, Hobbs. Grey blazer: £31.50, Topshop. Anna boots: £76.50, Topshop. Belt: 20p, charity shop. Vintage leather bag: £3.99, charity shop. Tote bag: free, Topshop. Rotary watch: gift. Insect necklace: New Look (old). Lipstick: Topshop Mischief.

Battersea Flower Station is a little haven tucked alongside the train line, filled to the brim with colourful delights. Jazmine showed Olivia and I her favourite spot for fresh flowers, and I'm hardly surprised to hear that she goes there often, even if just for a browse - they even have chickens! You can't help but forget where you are until a train rumbles past just a few metres away, on its way to Waterloo. Considering how bright it was, I'd somehow managed to pack a pretty monochrome outfit (spring trends, anyone?), so thought I'd make the most of the bright surroundings, which serendipitously matched my lipstick! This dress is a new favourite of mine, and handy to zip on when you're in a rush, or can't really be bothered to sort out an outfit for the day, which is always a plus in my eyes. But, for now, I'm about to head to the shop to pick up some vegetables for dinner - reckon they'll have some flowers for me?

Dirty old river, must you keep rolling.

18 and East playsuit: c/o fuse fashion. Angora jumper: £6, M&S, via charity shop. Bag: £4, vintage. Shoes: £22, Russell and Bromley, via ebay. Watch: gift, Rotary. Bracelet: gift. Rings: gift and vintage.

I'm not sure quite what's happening, but I think I'm going to need sunglasses. If you read any British blogs, you may have heard that summer may be just round the corner, and we're all rather excited by the novelty of it. I may not be a fan of my legs (go to the gym, Rebecca) but it was necessary to strip off the tights, and leave the house with a spring in my step in the prettiest 18 and East playsuit from fuse fashion, perfectly made for this kind of weather. To celebrate and send me off northwards for the final time, my friend
Harriet and I visited A Cherry On Top, a café we'd both walked past countless times, but never really tried out. Despite it definitely being brunch time, we both opted for cake instead of eggs benedict, which is probably the best morning decision I've ever made. Although those meringues do look good too...
