Dream a little dream

After a weekend shut indoors, I finally managed to get out for a walk in the sunshine today. It gave me the opportunity to bust out my tortoiseshell Wayfarers and my sweet little white tee with the teeny skulls and hearts and wings all over it. I can't even remember where I got it from, because the label is so faded!

I found a lovely bookshop on Exmouth Market called Clerkenwell Tales. Well I say 'found', but it's one of those places I must have wandered past 50 times without ever having been inside. 

I could have come home laden with so many beautiful tomes - they had cute editions of classic reads with super pretty covers and a huge range of fashion books that I've been lusting after - but I couldn't really afford it, so I just had a self-indulgent browse. A little awkward considering it's a small shop and I was in full view of the lady behind the counter the whole time. I felt like reassuring her that I'd be back on pay day!

My window-shopping desires not quite satisfied, I came home and spent a while on the Topshop website, picking out more treats to dream about.

But it's so scary! And I've never been v good on the roads (I failed my cycling proficiency test at school & wrote off my Mini after owning it for 3wks!) Walking works for me in London. I'll wait for quieter places for the bike m'thinks! :) x
