She wore a red beret

Happy Sunday!

I hope you all have had a lovely weekend, I ventured back home up to the north east to catch up with the family. It was a wonderful laughter and food filled two days which only re-iterated for me good ol’Dozza’s words: “there’s no place like home”.

Nonetheless, as much as I love a walk down the Harbour and a visit to my local chippy, on the other hand I’m incredibly lucky to be able to experience the cultural melting pot and buzzing inspirational hub that is Manchester.

 

Today’s photos were taken in Manc last week after a Sunday spent sipping hot chocolate and exploring homeware stores in the Northern Quarter.

My ideal Sunday consists of brunch, reading a good book/magazine and consuming as many sugary treats as possible, all whilst nestled up in a good knit. Bliss.

This ensemble was the perfect attire for such lazy Sunday activities, minus the inevitable of smothering my mug in bright red lipstick.

This frilly jumper I got last year on ASOS, is the perfect fine knit for that inbetweeny weather of cold and mild, and although it can appear somewhat more Victorian clown than Alexa Chung, I’m rather partial to its unique allure!

 

 

For comfort and ease I paired the jumper with my trusty ASOS slim mom jeans (more of a skinny fit on me), and my pointed toe VAGABOND western ankle boots.

The zebra belt also makes yet another appearance today, and although I can feel the cries of “you’re tacky and I hate you” as I strut down the street, I lap up all its gaudy charm.

My shockingly red beret, (pretty much fire engine red) was a steal for £3 on eBay and suprisingly fits my XL head a treat.

I hope you liked this post/look, and have a first-class working week!
