Easter Monday in Greenwich

What a gorgeous Easter Monday! The sun was shining and instead of sitting at our desks we were free to actually enjoy it! This afternoon I ventured south of the river to visit my friend Kirsty in one of my favourite places in London, Greenwich. It’s got the Thames, The Cutty Sark, some amazing pubs and a fantastic park which offers some of the best views on the city.

With it being such a gorgeous day I was desperate to dig out one of my beloved summer dresses, but it wasn’t quite warm enough to go bare legged so I opted for the dress and leggings look. I wore this adorable sun dress that I found in Hackney a few years ago, and teamed it with a cosy navy blue cardigan that I found in Compton Hospice, Wolverhampton.

My back pack is also a recent purchase, bought from Save the Children in Clapham North for £4.99. I love a good back pack and have a few sitting in my wardrobe, but this Claire’s Accessories number is cute and summery and I’m loving it.

Spring shirts

Work was pretty crazy at the start of the year and I rarely left the office before 7pm, let alone took a lunch break, but things have quietened down now and I am really making the most of my hour long lunch breaks. That means exploring the area for new charity shops 🙂  Last week on a lunch trip I bought this lovely floral shirt, bought from Barnardos in Brixton for £4.99. It’s super light and the bright colours are perfect for spring. I’ve worn it here with some simple black jeans.
