A capsule wardrobe for London and Brighton

So. I’m off to London tomorrow and I’m stopping off in Brighton to stay with a friend. I’m popping down to London to interview the gorgeous Jess Hart about her latest Neon Hart collection for Selfridges. I’m also going to the launch of Collective, an eco/ethical premium Tee brand. Lots to blog once I’m back, but for now. Here is my VERY capsule wardrobe.

From top Left. Wranger Black Skinny Jeans for Collective Party, GAP Hoodie for Tuesday in Brighton,  Current/Elliot Jacket for whole trip, Hugo Boss Orange for whole trip, Zara Chinos for Monday in London, TOPMAN vest for Monday in London and Tuesday in Brighton, Beaded accessories for Tuesday in Brighton, TOPMAN shorts for Tuesday in Brighton, Collective Launch invitation, Boss’s Mac Book for work, Zoe Karssen Tee for Collective Party, Clarks Desert Boots for whole trip and Hayfever tablets dead centre.

Also, went to see family for Sunday dinner before my impending London trip and Gran Canaria (July 4th-12th) and got early Birthday presents! €90 and this Sheaffer pen! (excuse horrific photography, I’m in a rush!)

Sanctuary from the City

Adam, our lovely friend Christopher and I visited Heaton Park yesterday for some peace and quiet outside of the city.

For those reading who aren’t from Manchester, Heaton Park is like Manchester’s answer to New York City’s Central Park. Sort of. 4 miles north of the City centre the estate, which has existed since the mid 14th century, is one of Europe’s biggest municipal parks and boasts an area of over 600 acres, a zoo, a few lakes, a tram way, horse riding stables, bowling greens, Beekeeping hives, a golf course, a museum and loads of trees, (quite the exciting feature for someone who lives amid concrete, glass and steel)! For those who do live in Manchester and had no idea it existed, go and have a looksee!

Our day was lovely, we ate strawberries and cream on the lawn in front of Heaton Hall, drank Jacques cider on a rowing boat out in the South Lake, I bought Bumble Bee Honey hand cream for £1 and we even saw a horse pee. It was a world away from dodging the drunk’s pee outside Weatherspoon’s in Piccadilly Gardens.

Enjoy the pictures.
