Last Saturday I joined my friend Iryna for a shopping trip in Nottingham, as we are picking an outfit for her stage performances with her band, MuHa. It was a lovely day out, the sun was shining (for most of the day), we talked giggled and looked at clothes. I also treated myself to a sushi lunch at Bonzai, it was tasty!
Balloon man even posed for the photo!
Lately I’ve been enjoying photographing people on the street. This time I was walking and this guy caught my eye, I thought he looked good and had a nice smile. I asked if he minded if I took a photo and he said yes! Turns out his stage name is Bright Lite aka Block, he’s a hip hop artist and gave me one of his cds. Thank you! You can find him on Facebook and Twitter if you’re curious.
Beautiful red strawberries. Summertime is my favourite time of the year.
We stopped for a lemonade. It was delish!
Moo! Details – Jacket – Primark (on sale), Skirt – Ebay – Bag – from a swap with Lili, Orange Cardigan – H&M (via Ebay), Black Tshirt – H&M, Loafers – Pull and Bear, Name Necklace – Christopher James of London. Funny story about the necklace (you can see it below), I ordered it and requested for the name on it to be Hello the Mushroom. Unfortunately that was too long for the cutting machine so I just had to settle for plain old Sara.
Found this amazing jacket at Oxfam. Unfortunately it was too big. I loved the golden trim on the lapels and the embroidered detail on the pockets. As I couldn’t buy it I thought I’d register it for posterity.
After Iryna left I went to the Nottingham Contemporary gallery, for a really good exhibition, The Universal Addressability of Dumb Things. It has to be one of the best shows I’ve seen there, featuring a collection of seemingly random objects, curated by Mark Leckey
Just a little sample. If you are in the area, I definitely recommend a visit. See some more of what’s on show here.
After all of this, I sat in the sun for a bit and it felt fantastic, see the happy face?
I am adding this post to Patti’s Visible Monday over at Not Dead Yet Style. Have a lovely week everyone!
