Denim jacket, dress and necklace: Monki//Shoes: Le Bunny Bleu//Bag: vintage//Sunglasses: Topshop//Hair band and ring: Forever 21//Nail wraps: Nail Rock

Ah Monki. Monki Monki Monki. The love affair continues. If you haven't already, go to the Carnaby Street store which is always nearly empty, bliss compared to Topshop!
Today involved more brunch, popping to Camden and seeing D's dad. It's now gin o'clock.

Today also marks an historic day: D and I have joined the gym! We also went into a Sports Direct to buy some trainers, that rare form of shoe I haven't worn for about seven years. We might celebrate by ordering take away tonight. Watch this space.

  1. Rocking a braid AND shades? Rachel you're so much cooler than I am - I can pull off neither. Your bag is to die for . . .

  3. I love your dress, I've been searching for one similar but whether I see them they're always a really clingy material. I will check out monki though! Good luck at the gym! I used to go but then figured it wasn't worth it as I got really hungry and ate 2x the amount I used to before when I got home. xx

  11. I went to the Monki on Carnaby Street a couple of months ago and left disappointed, but I guess I mustn't have been looking properly because you've picked up some real gems! I love your denim jacket with that gorgeous dress, lovely!

    I am also loving your braids, I've tried doing them but they never want to stay stuck to the top of my head! Any tips?
