Happy April all! I was at work super early for our April Fools day stunt but this really isn't an trick - it is an outfit post! I feel like it's going to be one of those transition months as I don't have many major plans, so I'm going to work on a few background projects, career-wise I think! There are lots of things I want to do for this blog too as Flying Saucer is coming up to eight years now. Hello to a reader I met in London who made me think of my golden blogging days - hi Heather!
So in the spirit of blogging, I have been looking for a better camera as mine was inherited a while ago. Nokia saw my post and tweeted to see if I would like to try their Lumia phone for a few weeks and oh wow, these photos are crystal clear! I've stocked up on lots of photos so expect many posts this week!
And onto these new kicks, the most satisfying shoes ever! I think that's the perfect word as I saw a snap of these last month and thought 'yes, these shall be mine'. I started wearing trainers with my Liberty print Air Max and I have them on constantly! I even walk to work in them and change into flats in the office. You either keep trainers totally bright, bouncy and pristine or you wear them in a little and generally they should stay good quality. I don't wear mine for trekking in the rain exactly, but they've worn well. I don't believe in keeping things hidden away but I am concerned for these Nike Roshe Runs as the palm printed canvas is so thin and bright white! The cushioned soles are so bouncy, it's like you've strapped sponges to your feet; they are light as air. I do want to keep these clean and I have loads of products to aid this, but in a way they are better when worn with mixed prints so they're not too in-your-face. I hoped they were limited edition but they are now in Office and got delivered free within just two days.
As I mentioned, I was in London on Thursday for a gig with a best gal friend and I spent half an hour in Oxford Street Topshop. Heaven! I used to go to London a lot when I worked at Motel but I haven't been in so long. I'm not often a Topshop shopper but all the cropped bralets and co-ord sets around at the moment are really the best in good old Toppers. Nasty Gal have had wrap bralets like this for a while so I was very happy to find this ivory cut out version on the high street. I squeezed into an 8 but took a 10 in the end so size up for this one! For nights out I'll pair it with a high waist split skirt and mega heels but in the day I'd add a printed skort or standard high waist jeans. These Joni jeans now have some sort of ladder in them which I know is fairly common, but this bright 'Pansy' blue is my favourite colour wash! Would you try some trainers?
