As I’m staying with my family at the moment and my mum gets to be my personal photographer at all times (don’t worry, I’m very easy to work with), I couldn’t resist going back to my routes and putting together a post on what I wore this week – just like I used to do back in the day. When I first got to Spain I didn’t think I could do much #ootd content as I hadn’t packed that much (although my
photographer mum begs to differ). But, as I have treated myself to a few cute bits since being back home, the outfits I’m sharing today are slightly different to this post I shared back in January…

A few things to note – the first week of February in my hometown has been very, very mild. Apart from a few showers here and there, it really has felt like spring was on the way. I’ll miss this mildness terribly when I go back to London – even though I’ll be entering a total lockdown and probably won’t bother going out for daily walks (because, winter).
Also, rediscovering my hometown’s local boutiques has been a pleasant surprise. I grew up with the notion that independent boutiques were pricey AF – and while lots of them still are, it’s great to have come across boutiques that have cute things and price wise match big chains like Zara or Mango. I adore my beige pleated knit mini skirt, and couldn’t resist my salmon pink and light green knits.
Finally, if you follow me on Instagram you’ll be (very) familiar with this Stradivarius tartan blazer. I’d had my eye on this blazer for ages and found it in the sale last month – as my Instagram feed proves I’ve worn it so, so much. I mean, is a bright red tartan blazer practical? In my life it certainly is. I know it’s early, but it might end up being one of my best buys of the year. Moreover, it might even make 2021 the year of the blazer for me – even if it involves wearing a blazer at home or just to the supermarket.
