AN AFTERNOON IN CROUCH END


On Sunday I had a day in London to relax, (AKA a day to do some washing and re-pack), before flying to Scotland for New Year's Eve. I decided to pop into Crouch End for lunch and ended up going to a lovely family run cafĂ©/bakery called Coffee Cake, a great place to visit if you like healthy eating and unique, tasty combinations! I had a prune and feta cheese tart with a side of aubergine salad and a blackberry and nettle tea. Yum. 

I wore my favourite tartan shorts, which I picked up about a month ago down Brick Lane, along with a cashmere jumper and my Dr. Martens shoes. Normally instinct would have me wearing a black collared shirt underneath this jumper, but I love the contrast of the white against the black, and it also adds a fun "school uniform" twist to the ensemble! The bag I'm carrying was a gift from my Auntie for Christmas and is from H&M. (I love simple, black bags because they go with most outfits and look so minimal)!

I'm currently still in Scotland, Matt and I are flying back tomorrow.... I can't wait to show you all of the photos! Although I am looking forward to my own bed and having my wardrobe back, I'm a little sad about returning to normal life and reality after the wonderful two weeks I've just had off.

  1. Yeah, a simple black bag has that power. I love this outfit so much! Your shorts look so much like a skirt so it has the comfort of a pair of shorts but the aesthetic of a skirt, which is beautiful! Also, your Dr. Martens shoes never die. You seem to wear them in each and every outfit post but I never tire of seeing them.

  3. My favourite looks I've seen wearing a tartan skirt and the mid length suits you greatly. Coffee Cake sounds like my sort of place!
