I remember feeling chilly when I took these photos by Columbia Road, little did I know that the temperatures were positively tropical in comparison to where I am now! At the moment I'm with family in snow-covered Germany, but let's cast our minds back to a few Sundays ago when I traded laziness for a long-awaited trip to the legendary flower market Carrie, Lucy, Olivia, Dunya and I risked looking like a photography club on tour once again, snapping everything from the pastel buildings to dogs on the street. You'd be forgiven for thinking that I was in Notting Hill but this is East London through and through, with plenty of well-dressed hipster types and all of the usual trendy haunts nearby.
Tights - Topshop
Boots - Cheap Monday
Ring - Monki
It's become a little tradition of mine to buy something from A.P.C whenever there's a sale on. First it was a humble men's t-shirt, then six months later a sweatshirt and now I've finally graduated to a coat. I had my eye on this retro number ever since the lookbook came out almost a year ago and made a mental note to pop in after Christmas to see if it had gone down. Thanks to a combination of discounts and some monetary gifts, I was able to make this beauty more of a Hight Street price. It's so nice to be able to wear a colour that lifts whatever I have on and it's beautifully soft due to being 100% alpaca. I'll hopefully be showing you the rest of my sale finds soon, as I'm still in the process of acquiring some bits I like and stalking final reductions. Even though I've had these Cheap Monday boots for a while, I've put off getting them fixed and finally got them mended after leaving it over a year. Wearing them recently reminded me why I bought them in the first place, that angled heel! You almost feel as if you're missing a vital part when you're walking but otherwise they're pretty comfy.
Of course with the title of this post, food had to be included somehow and we rewarded a few hours in the cold with a warm hearty meal at The Breakfast Club. I debated and deliberated before deciding to order a whopper of a meal including much of the menu and every fried thing going. The cosy sofas meant that we spent a good few hours chatting after eating and never felt rushed in the slightest, ideal for a lazy afternoon.
How would you spend a perfect Sunday?
