As much as I would like to believe otherwise, the sun doesn’t always shine in London… even when it’s Spring!
I know, madness.
Sometimes we have to make it through the wet ‘n’n windy greyscale days.
On days like this, all you can do is dress up in your own sunshine.
Like this head to toe black look.
Radiant, isn’t it?
But in all fairness, I have got some bling going on!
I bought this beauty back in February and can’t believe I still haven’t blogged it!
It might just be the love of my life.
The suede and tassels make it casual enough for day wear with jeans, the black and gold make it chic enough for evening wear.
(So obviously I justified it as two bags in one!)
We ventured south of the river for Sunday brunch.
I’ve heard great things about Source and wanted to give it a go for myself.
They specialise in seasonal, locally sourced (SOURCEd! geddit?) produce.
Even the water is as local as you can possibly get!
We washed down our local water with a jug of brunch punch.
Elderflower, prosecco, fruit and lots of ice.
Opting to share the ‘Nduja (spicy sausage) and egg sourdough roll.
The full English.
^ Cracking black pudding!
Sourdough with ragu, fried eggs and cheese.
Which was easily my favourite dish.
If they have it on the menu, order it!
A perfectly runny yolk pouring into the rich, meaty bed below.
A real thing of beauty!
We topped off our lazy brunch with pudding.
Earl Grey creme brûlée with rhubarb.
And a chocolate rum concoction, heavy on the rum!
Mary Berry would have loved it!
Source is well worth a trip if you find yourself hungry in Battersea.
And if it doesn’t cheer up a miserable grey day, nothing will!
