The New Love of My Life

TOPSHOP floral midi dress (old, I'm so sorry. I'm also sorry the button at the back's undone... don't look at it) | MAJE cropped leather jacket | FENDI sunglasses | CAMILLA ELPHICK silver moon booties | MULBERRY zipped bayswater

The first thing I'll tell you is that this outfit was a mistake. I looked out the window, saw it was sunny, and popped it on without a care in the world. Turns out it was actually only 7 degrees and I very almost died of hypothermia. A mild exaggeration maybe, but I did genuinely think all the hairs on my legs were going to freeze over and fall off at one point. It'd save me the hassle of shaving I suppose but, still, not that enjoyable. Secondly I'll tell you that last week a UPS man rung my doorbell and brought this beautiful Mulberry into my life and completely made my week (... life? Would it be acceptable to say life?). The lovely, wonderful, and all the other nice adjectives you can think of, team at Mulberry sent it out as a surprise gift from their new collection and very almost sent me into a happy foetal position. Growing up, Mulberry was a Big Deal in our house (capital B, capital D); it was the one luxury me Mam would allowed herself and, if I was very, very good and promised not to spill anything or put it down on the street, I was allowed to take Alexa or Lily out for a trip. So to have this thing of beauty turn up at my door was a bit of a ridiculous moment and one of the very few times where I've thought, 'oh my god I might actually be a little bit proud of myself'. But then I remembered I'm British and we don't do that so made a self-deprecating remark and got on with it. This 100% is not a humble brag, it's more just that I had so many emotions about it that I had to get them out on paper.

Anywayyyy, of course I popped it straight on. First with this and secondly with the outfit you see before your very eyes. My Toppers midi dress that I picked up in the sale last year - best sale find I've had in a long time, it was one of those cheeky ones that's tucked right at the back of the rail hidden from view - my space boots (of course) and my little cropped biker from Maje which I think you might actually only be seeing for the first time on here? So, please feel free to get acquainted with one another.

Right, I'm off to give my bag a wee cuddle
