Feeling Fruity

So the sun is shining and I am in the mood to ditch my black wardrobe of winter in favour of something a bit more colourful. Unfortunately my work uniform consists entirely of black - including tights! So when you pass girls wearing all black and think "corr, she must be boiling", you are 100% correct - we are sweltering. 

I made a promise this month that I would not buy any clothes being that all my wages get passed to the Great British High-Street. Having stuck to this rigidly I have had to update some of the slightly older pieces in my wardrobe. I find the best way to do this is by clever accessorising. I have been wearing this apple brooch a lot recently in a nod to the fruity trends showcased by Prada and Stella McCartney. Prada bananas it's not but I kinda like it. Plus it was only £2 from Primark.
