cinched in cerise






Kimono top - H&M
Palazzo pants - Primark
Satchel - Primark
Sandals - Accessorize
Sunglasses - Ray Ban


This outfit is a Manchester manifestation. I must praise this city and its glorious shopping. We had an absolute ball oop Norf and thoroughly made the most of the quite unexpected sunny weather. Not a drop of rain fell for the whole three days we were there, bar a light shower whilst we were devouring tapas and sangria at La Vina. I loved the Trafford Centre, a slightly hugely more lavish Bluewater, and felt spoilt with the two Selfridges&Co the city had to offer. We ate cupcakes and drank homemade lemonade at Hey Little Cupcake and said goodbye to the place with a quick spin on the Wheel of Manchester. But, I must say, that my favourite part of the trip was discovering the Northern Quarter - such a creative and contemporary area with many a fabulous vintage shops to rummage in. We had such a fun time and I came home to the clutches of the Essex countryside, heavy-handed with bags, weary but already mentally planning my next visit up there.


I hope you all had an eggs-cellent (!) Easter and enjoy the imminent four day weekend!
