Basic Brights

On Saturday night, alongside my two lovely friends, I walked 10 miles. We started at 10pm, making our way along the streets of Leeds with 400 other women, some homemade flapjack and a bag of Haribo. We kept a pace of 3.5 mph the whole way and finished in under 3 hours. It was exhilarating.

… Come Sunday, and I could barely put one foot in front of the other. My legs hurt. My feet hurt. My arms hurt. I managed to drag myself into the city to eat at Reds BBQ and watch The Great Gatsby (such hardship), but by the afternoon I was ready to drop. So I went for a walk. Of course!

Comfort was my number one priority for this walk – super soft denims, a slouchy tee and leather flats meant I could hobble along almost-easily and enjoy the cherry blossoms before they disappear for another year.

Basic brights like this neon tee from H&M and the beaded Zara necklace are a simple way to add colour to a boring outfit – I live in my grey Leigh jeans but they do need a bit of a boost to stop them looking drab. Finished off with a Brit-Stitch bag – the Half Pint in African Violet – I felt suitably summery, although a jump for joy was entirely out of the question.

What did you get up to this weekend?



I love your outfit! I went to see the Great Hatsby as well and it was fab! Loved all the outfits hahahah

Ah Leeds how I miss you so. I love your Leeds related posts, more please! Also- the Brit-Stitch bags are fantastic. Had a proper look at their website today, they’re a bit pricey for me but as it’s my birthday in August i might think on the little one as a gift from my husband. So just to say you’re obviously doing a good job for them as I’m sold, just need to save up or ask someone nicely. Welcome back!


A bit long winded but I “liked” their FB page this morning and saw they sell their bags through the Hut, a quick Google search took me to their eBay page and I managed to snag a chintz rose half pint for £45! Thank you 🙂
