Pastel Pink and French Braids
My most recent addition to my laid back weekend staples is this Karen Millen pastel pink jumper that I treated myself to in Selfridges last weekend (naughty) it's so comfy and warm but still on trend with the colour and little touches like the cream leather elbow patches. I need more of this kind of knitwear in my life!
French braids are my new favourite thing, my hair is just getting to that length (I'm slowly growing out a pixie cut, sigh) where it's not quite shoulder length but a bit too long to be a bob. It's perfect for getting your hair away from your face and really good for the gym too, nothing can escape. Plus, everyone is always quite impressed even though it's so easy!
You can win a Karen Millen leather jacket at the moment by the way! All you have to do is post a picture of you styling your Karen Millen pieces on twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #mycitymystyle and then your city, so I'd be #salford! Don't forget to tag Karen Millen in it too so they can count your entry, I'm about to do mine now! It's open until the 30th of April so there's plenty of time.
I love Manchester, it's one of my favourite cities in the UK, it has a much friendlier feel than other places I've lived like London. It feels like more of a town than a city! We actually live in Salford just outside of Manchester, which is definitely starting to come into it's own, Media City is getting more exciting and new, little bars and shops keep popping up. It's definitely not quite level with Manchester yet but I'd feel bad to turn my back on it in favour of Manchester!
