OOTD | A spot of pastels

Lavender pastel purple knit | Polka dot shift dress

Afternoon chaps! It's the end of a crazy, crazy week. I've been up to my knees in straw lambing, I've danced til my feet hurt at Rocky City, and on Thursday me and my work pals went down to London for an industry awards ceremony. I love being busy, but I was dreading these 7 days. It can take a lot out of you tearing around like a madhead, so this weekend, I have absolutely nothing planned. Bliss!

These snaps were taken in London just outside our hotel room. And look - bare legs!

Ok maybe bare legs was a bit optimistic... These running shoes are too nice to train in (and I'm still very happy with my other New Balance ones) so they're going to be my reserve for summer shoes. I still get London legs from walking for miles in between tube stations - how do you natives do it?

Perhaps this is the foray into pastels and Spring that I needed. I still have lots of stuff to blog about that is dark and winter-ready, but I'm planning lots of day trips when the sun shines for longer.

Photo diary to come!

  8. Nice outfit Claire, reckon they'd be the perfect trainers for dancing too. Win/win if you ever fancied it.

    Sounds like you've had a lovely but very busy week- sometimes a week of nothing is just perfect even if you love being busy normally :)
