I decided to head out into The City this weekend, and explore the mishmash of architecture. I love how ultra modern stand shoulder to shoulder with Victorian and even Georgian buildings. I keep meaning to go on a guided walking tour of The City, but that's for another day. The City has this strange effect on me, it really stirs up the British Pride in me.
So with these feelings awakened, I decided to dress for the occasion. A City slicker blazer and a Union Jack scarf- with a little fashion twist of course.
A boxy crop top!

Yes, part of me is absolutely barking mad wearing a crop top in this weather, but after Christmas I've been feeling a little self concious about my post- indulgence body, so in a bid to try and beat my doubts, I thought I'd take a leaf out of those girls who just seem to ooze confidence- through caution to the wind and say hey! I'm OK, to hell with negative thoughts!
Your eyes do not deserve you, I am wearing flats! Well even I would be a fool to wear heels when I've spotted ice on the ground.
Join me in a little patriotism and throw on something from your home country, it does wonders for the mood. And if you are feeling a little self concious lately, or your body image is feeling under fire. I'm not saying, don't worry, don't let it bother you, as trust me, I know its not that simple, but do try and step out of your comfort zone, take a bold leap of confidence and wear something totally daring.
It can be rather therapeutic- and far cheaper.
