Happy Halloween everyone! Hope your day has been full of treats, sweets and cats. I spent my Halloween blogging in the morning followed by a coffee date with Dave in the afternoon… that’s as spooky as mine gets! Our coffee date was in Winchester, one of my favourite cities in the UK. It’s really more like a quaint town with cobbled streets, lots of independent boutiques, cute cafes and many, many pubs. It feels very British and like one of those places described in books.
For today’s outfit, I chose my favourite scratchy print skirt from Topshop (similar here) and probably my most-worn black roll neck. This top is actually from the girls’ section in Zara and cost £3.99… yet it’s one of my favourite pieces! Similarly, the pebble-effect cross-body is my go-to bag and is from the pre-Christmas sale last year in Mango; it was £9.99 from what I remember… Why is it that I always end up wearing my cheapest items the most? Haha. I also secretly layered another long-sleeved top underneath, a cheat to avoid wearing a jacket and spoiling a simple outfit. It turns out I didn’t need a jacket or the extra layer as it was so uncharacteristically warm today.
Since it was Halloween, we went to our usual spot, Cafe Winchester, to celebrate with a spooky latte. Dave ordered a Japanese matcha tea, which prompted me to finally try a matcha latte. You can’t get more spooky than tea the shade of radioactive green! Mine was more of a pistachio colour but Dave’s definitely fitted in with the Halloween theme haha. Both, however, were very tasty and I would definitely recommend trying them – as a tea and used as the base for a latte. I had mine with soya milk so it was probably a little different to what a matcha latte would normally taste like, though. I also ordered a slice of tiramisu shortbread as it looked so tempting and I can’t help myself around cake…
So this was my Halloween on the actual day! There’s a post coming up about mine and Dave’s little celebration on Saturday – including pumpkin carving, of course – but both days have been quite calm and low-key this year… unlike last year’s Halloween! You can read about it here if you’re interested ☺️ How have you spent your Halloween? I’d love to hear all about it! It’s always so exciting seeing other people’s costumes and makeup so send links to your Halloween posts too!
ps. I’m trying out a new format for my posts – mainly bigger photos that aren’t squares (which took some getting used to haha) so let me know what you think of it. Is it better like this or should I go back to my trusty squares? 💛
