Bonjour from Paris!
I’m currently on a weeks vacation in this beautiful city (be sure to follow me on Instagram to see what I’ve been up to), but I’m still trying to catch up on some outfit posts. This one is from a few weeks ago when i visited the Wellcome Collection for a 2nd time (you can see my first visit here!). They’re open late on Thursdays, so me and Chloe popped along after work to check out their exhibitions; The Institute of Sexology & Forensics (both of which are free), and to take another wander around the newly refurbished Reading Room.
First thing’s first – here’s what I wore!
This amazing green Superdry tartan jacket was given to me by a work friend. It’s so warm and snuggly with an inner fleecey lining. I feel like a bit of a Northern farmer (this is a great thing in my books!). I thought I’d go for a double clashing tartan look with this vintage grey and yellow checked skirt that I picked up from Lou Lou’s vintage market in Brighton. This grey cable knit H&M jumper is a must with this skirt. I’ve layered it over my colourful butterfly top from Romwe as I felt the bright collar would tie in with the yellow detail from the skirt (though they’re slightly different shades!). My yellow Primark brogues finish this look off nicely!
Right, back to the Wellcome Collection …
Sadly you’re not allowed to take photos in either The Institute of Sexology or Forensic exhibitions. However, on the plus side, the Reading Room wasn’t too busy, and the Wellcome Collection are all for you taking photos and getting stuck into the books and games in here. We also had the chance to walk up the new spiral staircase! I really do love the Reading Room. It’s a half library, half exhibition space. The bean bags on the red velvet staircase are particularly comfy too, so how could I resist grabbing a book and delving in.
After perusing the 2 exhibitions, we headed to Ed’s Diner, which is nearby in Euston Square. I love that they do an Ed’s Skinny Shake, as it means I don’t end up being too full for actual food. Peanut butter is always my go-to flavour. Rumour has it, there’s a new Ed’s opening in my hometown of Luton. Looks like I’ll be visiting a bit more often…
