What I wore: Feeling rather 60s...

These photos were taken on the evening of my birthday. After our day out we refreshed ourselves and I had a quick outfit change. This is one of the dresses I purchased from Portabella market... a bargain at just £5! I love the cute white collar and ditsy floral print. I paired the dress with this vibrant mustard yellow coat my sister gave to me at the beginning of the year. I'm really liking shades of mustard and teal at the moment, I go through phases with colours... I don't think I could ever have a particular favourite colour; there are so many wonderful colours that inspire me all the time it would be so hard to narrow it down to just one. Do you have a favourite colour or does yours constantly change like mine? 

Let me introduce you to my dear friend Neil (above) We met at University back in 2003 and he has been one of my best friends since! We had a delicious thai meal with Ross at yumyum in Stoke Newington (famous for being on Gordon Ramseys best restaurants) followed by a few drinks at the Jolly Butcher... A very nice end to a fantastic day :)

Thanks Ross for taking all the photos x

p.s.The background I'm standing against is around the corner from our new London pad and very close to Lord Sugar's old primary school. The Apprentice has to be both mine and Ross's favourite programmes at the moment so we were pretty excited to where he grew up!

Wearing: Vintage 60s dress from portabella market, vintage mustard 60s coat from my sister, Topshop tights and shoes, vintage tapestry bag from The Attic People vintage.
