Afternoon Tea Outfit

At the weekend it was my Nan's 75th birthday and my mum organised a Afternoon Tea with all the family at a hotel down the road from us. I had been thinking about an outfit a few weeks prior as I was starting to see all the new Spring collections start to hit the shops. With Spring just around the corner and pastel pinks and blues taking over from the khaki and maroons I really wanted to wear something that has a pop of colour. So when I saw these cute baby pink floral trousers on the New Look website... well I just had to have them! 

I teamed them with...

Black Duster Jacket: New Look; last season- One of my best buys of last year,  perfect for adding a slight smartness to.
White Top; Primark -I have about 4 of these in different colours, great for layering.
Black Boots; Vagabonds (Urban Outfitters) -All time go to boots, so comfortable and great for giving me much needed height!
Lips; Kiko Velvet Matte Lipstick #613 -my favourite go to lipstick at the moment, similar to Mac 'Spice'.

Take a peek at all these yummy treats!

13 things I learnt while inter-railing

13 things I learnt while inter-railing. 

1. European countries charge for ketchup, take a mini bottle with you on your travels.

2. Google maps turn into paper maps.

3. Wifi becomes your best friend.

4. English breakfast tea is sacred.  

5. Bringing one pair of socks for each day is unnecessary. 

6. Breaking the handle on your suitcase 5 days in, is ultimately one of the worst things possible.

7. The amount of outfits you can make with 2 tops and 2 pairs of leggings is pretty impressive.

8. Waking up early is easier when you're abroad.

9. All cheese comes with ham and all tuna comes with egg.

10. Sweetcorn is classed as a 'roasted vegetable'.

11. Free walking tours are the bomb; explore the city for free and perfect for getting your barrings of your new surroundings. 

12. Planning isn't spontaneous, but it does mean that you get the most out of your travels. 

13. Sleeping on the train is out of the question, you will always wake up with a neck ache or numb hand/leg.
