A Walk in the Park

Sometimes it's nice to take the time to just relax and wander your favourite park, no matter how cold it is. In my case, my favourite park is Alexandra Palace, in North London, and I'm lucky as it's my local park and I can walk up whenever I want. You can see the whole of London from the top, including the BT Tower and Canary Wharf.

I wandered up with Marin after brunch and we spent the whole of Sunday walking around the park. We did everything from admiring the view, finding wild deer, playing with the ducks and hanging on the swings. They also have a year round Ice Skating rink, and a funfair, Boat lake and mini golf course, which are open over the summer, as well as gigs, so the 'Ally Pally' really is one of my favourite parks of London.


I wore a jumper, with my H&M coat on top, A Wear jeans and my amazing new  Clarks Original Desert boot, which are one of my newest Sarenza buys. Although, the poor shoes did get a bit muddy while we were walking in the park, they did cope well and were super comfortable for the hours and hours of walking. 

The Desert boot has become a bit of an iconic shoe this last year or so, and I'd been meaning to try it since the amazing Florence (from Florence and the Machine) was spotted in them at Glastonbury. I love how mine, the Yarra, have a wedge to them, making them more a bit more girly, and the shoes definitely live up to all the compliments they get. They look so stylish and are so comfortable. I was on my feet, shopping, all afternoon and the shoes were nothing but comfortable. Clarks are known for uber comfortable shoes, and the insides are cushioned, making them great to wear all day.


The above picture is me with Leo The Brass Lion. I love him! Growing up, I would spend hours playing on him, and seeing him again bought back all my childhood memories!!

What's your favourite park?

Hahaha that photo of you on the fake lion is the best thing EVER!! I love it! Is this on fb?! It has to be! :D

And although I've never been to London, I've always associated the city with beautiful parks I would love to take a stroll in. In movies and television and books...sigh. You're lucky to live in such a fabulous city. ;)

I've only ever been to Ally Pally once, but it was great. I live right by Crystal Palace park, so that's probably one of my favourite London ones - it has model dinosaurs!
