Coat: charity shop//Breton top: vintage//Jeans: Joni Jeans//Flats: Zara//Sunglasses: Topshop//Ring: & Other Stories

I'm quite keen on coordinating my outfits at times- red lips, nails, shoes and stripes. I bought this Breton top at Glastonbury one year for a few pounds, it's just the right slouchy fit. We keep wanting to put our winter coats in the loft, but again today saw the return of wind and rain, when will it end?

My mum is back from France tomorrow for a week, and then it's my last five days in my current job! It's going to be sad bringing home all my boxes of tea, plant and other odds and ends I've amassed there. I'm still trying to decide on my best route to my new office- two overgrounds and a short walk, or three tube changes? Hmm.
