Coat and Jumper: MinkPink
Scarf: from a tiny shop on Church Street
Beanie: American Apparel

All photos taken by Frances Emma Baker

A slightly different post of sorts, obviously this is not an outfit post (I'm wearing a beanie and borrowed walking boots, definitely not out of choice!) I had to wear the beanie because it was so cold and I thought ear muffs might look silly. Please note everyone else's attire in the last photo below to see where I'm coming from, no the most appropriate mountaineering outfit really. I have no walking/outdoor clothing whatsoever, so when Ciara suggested we walk up Snowdon for her and her twins birthday with all our best friends a couple of weeks ago I was a little scared. Needless to say I didn't really walk it, the conditions were bad enough for the best walker, so me and Fran decided to kind of do a mini photoshoot on the way back down as the scenery was breathtaking, if not a little eerie too. It just made you feel so alive. And to get out of London and be within the heart of the countryside in the fresh air away from all the ridiculous trivial drama and stress that's been happening recently was a welcome relief.  

One of the best (which started off as the worst) things about the weekend was that there was absolutely no signal or internet the entire time. After having a slight panic about my store and how anyone would contact me if something had happened at home, it was probably the most refreshing things to spend a weekend without a phone glued to my hand. It meant I could actually enjoy the moment, spent with my best friends in the whole world like nothing had changed since we were 11, and it was amazing. More weekends like that are definitely needed. Maybe with less hiking.

Favourite girls in the world.

Paisley and Fringe

T-shirt: Kiss the Sky via Spoiled Brat
Fringe Waistcoat: Waiste (similar HERE)
Red Paisley Bells: Miracle Eye
Fedora: Catarzi via ASOS 

Literally the comfiest outfit ever. I really could live in these awesome bells forever. If you haven't heard of Miracle Eye already, you really should go and check it out, run by the awesome Larissa from Velvet Codeine in LA, who started it when she was 15 (!), and it is incredible. Full of grungy, boho, cowboy goodness and with their own in handmade in-house label too, she is one seriously amazing and inspiring babe and proves dreams really do come true. One day I will make it to LA and go hang out with her and visit her new store and buy everything!

I love this awesome t-shirt from Spoiled Brat by my new fave brand Kiss the Sky again, I always find it really hard to wear t-shirts, or find good ones, but I love the print on this and it just seems to go with everything. Spring is in the air I can feel it and I can't wait.
