Act natural

I've been doing some indoor outfit shoots for convenience but I thought I'd get creative with some props this time to make things more interesting. I had fun setting the self-timer and shuffling into position to pretend to read Monocle magazine. I also recommend not pretending to read Monocle since it's pretty awesome if you're interested in design, global affairs, business, and all that good stuff. The Rouleur magazines aren't mine but they sure have pretty covers (it's a magazine about cycling if you're interested!).

When was the last time I wore jeans on this blog? It must've been a while ago. Like a lot of people, I don't always like how my legs look in jeans and sometimes I go months without wearing them. But thankfully my ability to go "fuck it, my legs look fine" has grown over the years, so my two pairs of jeans get more outings than they used to. Anyway, this is one of my go-to casual outfits. The oversized shirt is from Pomelo, the jeans are old Zara ones, and the shoes are old Topshop slip-ons I wear all the time. I added a choker - it's really just a piece of ribbon - to amp up the 90s vibes.

Day Trips out of London - Rye & Winchester

I really don't see enough of the UK. Aside from my trips to Devon once a year to visit family I don't get out of London much. I've been trying to change that and if you are too, here are two great places to go on a short trip.

Procida Photo Diary

procida
My family and I weren't sure which island to visit when we were in Naples. Capri seemed like an obvious choice but we were put off by the thought of the summer crowds. Ischia was another option, a less glamorous but interesting island. In the end it was Procida that won our vote; our decision swayed by seeing photos of the multi-coloured harbour Marina Corricella (above).

As we pulled into Procida's harbour, we knew we made a good choice. The ferry arrives at Marina di Procida which is lined with several shops and restaurants, which makes it a great place to hang around while you're waiting for the ferry back.

The walk to Marina Corricella only takes around 10 minutes. Once you get to the Santa Maria delle Grazie church, you'll find the steps down to the Marina. There are a couple of restaurants on the harbour with loads of fresh seafood dishes. My mum was very impressed with what she ordered, and if she's impressed with a place's seafood you know it's good.
