Pastel Cats

So after posting about my new found love for my unicorn t-shirt by "The Mountain" a while back in this outfit post, something happened which I was completely not expecting. The Mountain actually dropped me an email to see if I wanted to work with them on a regular basis...and with the brand becoming a new favourite of mine how (the hell) could I not resist.

With that being said expect some "The Mountain" themed t-shirt outfits to appear on the blog over the course of the next few months, showing you lovelies how you can style your favourite t-shirts in multiple ways. For todays "cat themed" tee, which I've had my eye on owning ever since my sporting my bestie in one. I decided to keep with the pastel coloured theme and pair it with a pair of pale wash jeans (that I've been living in recently), that faux fur pink bag and a new case from Caseapp-with a purple "petrol" inspired design <3.

With the bodysuit being a huge trend this season I thought it was about time that I got my hands on one (or two...), as they're such a versatile item that can be worn in numerous ways. I also thought they'll be a good basic piece when building my holiday wardrobe (for the LA sunshine) come 3 months time. The holiday shopping will soon be commencing! 

So when I spotted this Bardot inspired number in the Petite section (although I'm not usually "petite" but it seems to fit perfectly) as they didn't have this style in the regular line. I immediately fell for its off-the-shoulder short sleeve design, and simplicity. I know for sure that it will be piece that will be receiving some love come the warmer months. Especially as I am already dreaming up the outfits to style with...pleated tennis skirts and high-waisted denim shorts anyone?!

Barbican

Last week I hoped on the train into London for a visit to the Barbican and a spot of shopping/exploring, as well as a much needed to catch up. The Barbican has been one of those places which I have been meaning to visit for too long, as I never really venture to that side of town for galleries. That being said it didn't disappoint, the exhibition we saw was the "Strange and Familiar" which was curated by the famed photographer Martin Parr. It was basically a series of photographs documented by international photographers of the social/political change of the UK from the 1930s. 
There was an array of images including some iconic ones of the 60s Rolling Stones concert at Hyde Park, as well as ones by Henri-Cartier Bresson. 

We actually ended up on Brick Lane (naturally) checking out the American Apparel pop-up store where everything was £1-£20. Bargain city. I picked up some steals whilst there too, including a bodysuit for £6, bikini top £4 and a cute USA bow for £2, as it's not everyday you come across an AA store under £20. If you ever around that area and a (huge) fan of AA then it's their till the 23rd.
