Sunday started out exceptionally well with a Lola’s cupcake. I love cupcakes and blue icing is my absolute favorite. Though you can get cupcakes in Prague, I have yet to find the perfect blue icing cupcake here, but I had the great fortune to have two whilst in London (I only took a photo of one though, which had “happy birthday” written in chocolate and with my birthday being the following Friday it was perfect really.) And I also really loved the packaging, so cute!
After my delicious cupcake, M and I took the tube to Camden town. Our first stop was Aldo, located near the tube station, where I bought my new two-in-one tote bag (which I mentioned in my what-I-bought-in-London post). Then we headed to the market and stopped by Miss Poppy Cakes for a coffee break, as it was still early for all the shops to be open. I really loved this place, it had such a fun and quirky decor inspired by Alice in Wonderland, the flamingo wallpaper was just adorable.

Another belated pre-London vacation post, this time featuring a dress turned skirt DIY item. It was originally from Stradivarius, it is really old (bought like 7 years ago?) and since I turned it from a dress into a skirt shortly after purchasing it. I think I wore it as a dress only once as maxi dresses aren’t really my thing. While I like them on others, they very rarely feel like my style. (Currently in my dress collection I have two maxi dresses, both very old but I do occasionally wear them.) So I decided to turn it into a skirt and have worn it a few times, I prefer it like a skirt and am glad that I made the change (if I recall correctly, the dress was really hard to get into anyways).
I wore an old necklace, also from Stradivarius if I’m not mistaking. This look felt both relaxed with a slight boho vibe but at the same time with a slight edginess to it. I think the maxi skirt with the see-through fabric just does that on it’s own, the exposed yet covered juxtaposition.

A while ago M and I went to see the movie Spy (absolutely loved it!) and this is what I wore. I had my glasses on because there was a chance I would be driving and I based my whole look on my glasses.

Usually I’m all about the short skirts and mini-dresses (especially in combination with black opaque tights) but come the warm weather, I also gravitate towards comfortable carefree midi lengths. This skirt in particular is a favorite of mine, it’s from Topshop and I absolutely adore it (the gingham print, the style and cut, the material, it’s all good.)

Sometimes I wear an outfit that consists of favorite pieces and it makes that outfit really special. I have a lot of “favorites” but these are favorites in the truest sense. The shoes are from Melissa (definitely my favorite shoe brand ever) and they are the tangerine bow flats (I also have them in black and in yellow). I wear the black ones the most but I think these red ones are my favorite. Something about red shoes just makes me instantly happy.

A while ago I posted a “files of new” post about purchasing these shoes and here is an outfit I wore with them. The shoes in question are the “Buns’n’roses” oxfords from Iron Fist. I love these shoes, I think they are so cute! I went a bit kitsch while styling them.
