LA to London

Tee: J.Crew, Shorts: Madewell, Shoes: Birks, Bag: Ellen & James, Earrings: & Other Stories

You know, I've never actually been in LA - I've just had a layover in their airport. This post title is technically a lie, you guys! Now, because I have been super lax (LAX?) with blogging (did the winter of '17-'18 just not happen in my world?) you won't have far to scroll before you see that I also wore these shorts last summer. Loved 'em then, love 'em now. And believe me, they were a godsend during the heatwave we had in July and early August - anyone who thought climate change was just a myth will hopefully have received a wake-up call there. But anyway...

A few years ago, Madewell had a bright blue "LA" tee that I really liked, but as I had to be super selective with what I ordered from them (this was even before they started shipping to Europe), I had to pass on it. So imagine my delight when I discovered that J.Crew had reissued it in this much more classy navy shade and marked it down to what I consider fair to pay for a T-shirt! This was around the time of my birthday, and a friend had sent me a card with money on it (don't do this, btw! It could get stolen!) and her gift just covered the price of this T-shirt plus a cinnamon roll. Pretty neat, right?

Walking through Soho

Jacket + skirt: Anthro, old, Tee: Lindex, old, Bag via Etsy

We snapped these pictures while walking through Soho on our way somewhere. Possibly to have Japanese food at a Chinese-run restaurant called Dozo - Chinatown and Soho are right next to each other, and sort of overlap a little. Or maybe we'd already eaten, and were on our way to buy comics - that is, on our way to the comic store, where I would run downstairs and ask about my subscriptions, while Victor waited outside to avoid the "smelly man stink". Seriously, we're like, a totally genderswapped couple...

There was no particular reason to snap outfit photos - I just happened to like what I was wearing, and Victor didn't mind too much. This is the colour scheme I've been talking about - the blues, reds and pinks all together. My new favourite combo. And also my favourite Matsu-bag that I got on Etsy - it's just a shame I angled it to the side, or you'd see all the sextuplet heads with their different expressions. I don't care if people think it looks super nerdy, I just love this bag that I snagged for £16!
