Pleated Midi Skirt in Spitalfields


I always dress up when going to London. You would never catch me wearing this on a 7.30 am Monday commute, that's for sure! I think it's because I wear more casual and laid-back clothes for work, and so whenever I go out I feel the need to make more of an effort with my appearance. Wear contact lenses, maybe some eyeliner, brush my hair...(just kidding - I haven't owned a hair brush in about 8 years now.) This isn't the only reason though. Getting ready can be fun, especially when you have a little extra time in the AM. Putting some music on, trying out different outfit variations, and actually enjoy putting makeup on instead of rushing like a lunatic. As you can imagine, my 'work self' looks a little different from 'blog self'.



We decided to have a wander around Spitalfields Market one Sunday morning. It's worth going there for the food alone - stalls, restaurants, cafes - foods from all over the world, and it smells so good. After wandering around for a while we tried to find a quiet spot for some pictures, and came across this tiny alley literally across the street from the main market building.

I've had this outfit in mind for a while now - I love the contrast between the midi skirt pleats and the tweed coat. This midi skirt definitely makes any outfit feel dressed up, it was a little pricey but definitely worth it as we've worn it a lot recently, and Zara now have a burgundy version which I may just have to invest in at some point!

These past few week-ends have been quite busy for Holly & I. I've found myself in my pjs at 7pm most nights (please reassure me that I'm not the only one who gets changed the moment I step home from work), ready to watch The Crown and then just sleep. The introvert within me is a little tired from all the socialising, but I've had some wonderful moments with friends and family so the dark circles etc are definitely worth it.
