Oversized denim jacket, check. Daisy dress, check. Heart white school socks, check. Jelly shoes, check. A playground, check. Turn back the clock fifteen years to the mid-nineties and the only piece of my childhood missing from this outfit post is a Roxy backpack filled with Sabrina The Teenage Witch memorabilia and glitter pens. 

There's something incredibly nostalgic and comforting about dressing in an outfit I would have worn as a child and running around the playground near my house in Kent; it almost feels like being a teenager and my three years living in London never happened. 

Make no mistake, there's no way I intend to dress like an seven year old every day for the foreseeable future but every now and again there's nothing wrong with enjoying slipping on your childish shoes and going for a walk through the rain, only to return home soggy-socked to a familiar face waiting for you with a cup of tea.

So, umm, do you think the idea of a few months in New York is toying with my emotions? Best leave it there before this turns into one of those long cringy blog posts I swore to myself I would never write and I lose whatever credibility I may or may not have had to begin with. Feel free to share yours below!

I love the school socks and jelly shoes combo! I used to wear them all the time when I was about 8! Nice denim jacket too :)
