Brighton up.

Friday, 25 January 2013

(Top - ASOS; blazer - Glam Itself from Joy Hysteric; shorts - French Connection)
Today : woke up to an ashen grey sky and ominous clouds, the perfect backdrop for a cup of warm, milky tea in bed and a good book. My natural sartorial reaction to such conditions is to counteract the dreary hues with brighter shades so I thought it fitting to post these images taken a while ago when I was in Melbourne with the lovely Sonia from Daring Coco. Don’t the vibrant Brighton boxes make you giddy with glee? Thank you Sonia for bringing me here – I had so much fun chasing the sunset with you! <3

Apologies also for the lack of posts of late – I have just finished my first week as a doctor (!!!) in Emergency and am currently in a euphoric haze of feeling like the luckiest girl in the world...

Hope you all have the most exquisite weekend!

Much love, Mandy. xx
