Winter Hideaway: Barbican Conservatory

Happy February my friends! Thanks for sticking around the messier parts of January – but we're back in biz as I count down the days to Chinese New Year and starting work in March soon (eeek!). Anyway one fine, freezing weekend, Matt & I decided we (me) wanted some nice shots of my super awesome OTK Public Desire boots and my stylish coat I picked up in the sales. But we also wanted somewhere warm and walking the streets with icy winds in my face ain't going to work.

Barbican Conservatory it was! I've always wanted to go - plentiful of bloggahs flock to this location since it's supposed to be a peaceful oasis, not to mention, pretty cool backdrop. So let me get this right out first, the Conservatory itself was pretty underwhelming. But I'm not complaining given the scarcity of space in London, a small green space in the City was a nice respite from the grey skies.

So happy I got to talk to everyone about the overwhelming travel excitement in my previous Seoul post, and I'm heading to Madrid in two weeks for some sunshine so it'll be a good refresher before everything starts and I have a real life.

Talk aside, I am totally diggin' these OTK boots because they're the perfect fit for me and insanely comfortable (and trust me, I have very princess-y feet) which do not cost as much as Stuart Weitzman but totally looks the part. I've worn this look in my Columbia Road Flower Market post and you and totally see that I can strut in style, without falling over, because of the block heel! I paired this with a ~sophisticate~ wraparound coat from Zara in the sale :) let me know what you think!

Underneath is also a new piece from COS - a fave colour of mine: salmon-y pink (yes totally qualifies) which is soft and comfortable for layering over my Uniqlo Heattech ;)

As we know, I'm the number 1 comfort fan so everything I wore here was just really easy to walk/breathe in so hurray for that. I'm spending the next couple of weeks with my mama since she's in town at the moment, so it's been really great to have her round to show her what mischief we get up to...

Let me know what your special Valentine's plans are (if you're celebrating, that is), personally I'll be indulging in all dat CNY food to be bothered! Or generally #febgoals or random things like that... Drop me a tweet or two to chat or say hi below :) see y'all soon!
