OoTD No. 9 – Happy birthday to me!


On Saturday 22 May 2010, I turned 24. Happy birthday to me! To celebrate me and my birth, the Boyfriend and I had a night out in Kings Cross: piles of Spanish tapas and tempranillo at Kika (I cannot recommend that place enough) and cocktails with a view at the rooftop bar of the Kings Cross Hotel.



I wear a lot of men’s tshirts. I’m an XL or XXL in women’s tees and they always fall too short on my torso, whereas I’m a M in men’s tees and they generally fit like a dream.  This PLUR-esque tee by Religion was a perfect addition to my wardrobe.



Jacket: LA Vintage
Men’s tshirt: Religion from Asos
Skirt: Supre
Bag: Asos
Tights: We Love Colors
Socks: Holeproof
Boots: Dr Martens

    I was going through your blog and found it really cool. You are an amazing person.

    Wishing you a very happy shiny belated Birthday and a fabulous year ahead.

    Righteous, as always. And I’m so going to check out Kika. Thanks for the reccy, and I hope you managed to string out the birthday a few more days :)

    I bet those Docs are fantastic for puddle jummping!

      Kika is fab. Their seafood tapas is always my favourite – the best dishes we had on Saturday were ceviche and grilled cuttlefish. Deeeelish.

      I’ve managed to stretch out the birthday love for over a week! Thursday: Dinner and presents with the fam. Saturday: Dinner with the Boyfriend. Monday: Cake at work. Tomorrow: Belated dinner with my best friends. I’m loving the attention.

      When I’m wearing more appropriate attire (read: not white) I’ll definitely take the docs puddle jumping. (What a fabulous idea!)
