New In: Zara - Cadillac blues and crystal candy flats

I was seriously impressed on a visit to Zara today. They have some gorgeous new spring/summer pieces that tap into SS12 trends and are easily incorporated in to a working and weekend wardobe...

Cadillac blue sandals, perfect with flirty 50s candy coloured skirts...

Prada SS12 Cadillac blue shoes

Lace skirt with nude underlay, perfect for summer barbecues...

The Zara 'It' Tote now comes in almond cream...the shade I've been hoping for in my favourite bag style!

Vuitton-style embellishment on this cute 50s-style sleeveless shirt...


Crystal candy flats worthy of the red carpet...

Sundays: Columbia Road Flower Market, The Diner on Curtain Road, Brick Lane

We began our lovely day at Columbia Road Flower Market which has a whole host of gorgeous shops and cafes as well as rows upon rows of flower stalls [my Mum's idea of heaven, being a florist]. 

We stopped at a little whole-in-the-wall cafe for hot calamari in cones and wandered around the stalls before heading into Shoreditch for pancakes at The Diner on Curtain Road. 

I then wandered off and had a look around Spitalfields Market [they have a lovely Whistles store just outside on Brushfield Street]. I treated myself to the Charlie skinnies in coral at their St Christopher's Place flagship store on Saturday...

Then I stumbled upon this Vintage Market off Spitalfields towards Brick Lane [opposite Absolute Vintage - one of my favourite vintage stores in London]. They had a mixture of antiques, vintage clothing and accessories. I spotted this lovely old, battered Barbour jacket...which actually seems somewhat redundant in the warmer weather now upon us.

Until next weekend...

It is rare that I go into French Connection, but I found this fantastic jumper there yesterday. A great investment buy, to go with skirts, printed trousers - Spring through to Winter...

Pastel sugars

I envy my friend who is currently living near the Tuileries gardens in Paris, living my dream. She's returning to London for the weekend on Friday and I can't wait to hear tales of Paris, the shows, the frenzy, the city...

If I could sum up my ideal outfit in one picture it would be this. Pastel sugary pink, navy blue cashmere, a chic hat and the most ladylike shoes on the planet. Parisian perfection at its utmost.
