Nothing quite like good coffee and blackberry crumble on a cold autumnal morning. Met a friend for elevenses today in a new cafe in our local market and was quite taken with the delicate artwork adorning the milk foam of our flat whites. Then we went on to the market to buy some fish and vegetables.
Today I also debuted my new leopard print peg leg trousers! If there is anywhere that I can feel comfortable wearing a pair of leopard print trousers to shop for groceries it would be the ever lively Brixton market. My outfit is tame compared to some of the amazing things worn by the Jamaican and African ladies who shop here regularly! There is no excuse to wear a track suit to visit the fishmonger when there are people making the effort in full national costume.
I love leopard print and am over the moon that it is the print of the season however, I usually stick to wearing it in tops and accessories. I first saw these on Topshop's website and thought they looked like fun. I also convinced myself that I'd never dare to wear them. I then saw someone else wearing them, got a case of leopard print trouser envy and decided to take a walk on the wild side!
