What I Wore – Julian Hakes and Babes

julian hakes
Amidst a rough couple of weeks between eye surgeries, my sister* Tiffani finally left the US and made her way over here to join me for two weeks of adventure in Leeds, London, and Paris. Not only that, but two of my favourite Londoners hauled their lovely bums up to Leeds to share in the excitement of her first weekend; an introduction to ‘night’s out’, cathedrals, mystery games, the countryside, latte art, the Great British High Street, and more.

I am a lucky lady.

What I Wore:
Julian Hakes Mojito Shoes from Cloggs (because what better excuse to whip out the coolest shoes I’ve ever seen – plus, they’re on sale!)
Polka dot shirt dress (similar here)

(*Not by blood, but – long story short – after her family took me in and became my family so many years ago, there is no better way to describe her).

Eye Surgery Hiatus

eye surgery
In the land of Lela, crazy things have popped up unexpectedly.

Like, bleeding in my eyes.

Long story short, a blend of stress and blood issues (yay, anemia and diabetes!) has meant I woke up a few mornings back with no vision in my right eye. After being checked out at the hospital for a few hours, I have undergone the first session of two eye surgeries that will hopefully end next Monday and fix the damaged blood vessels.

No sympathies needed, I just want to keep everyone up to date as the blogs will be few and far between in this time period – the sight I do have is very blurry from the surgeries.

(After which you will have some AMAZING updates as my ‘friend’/sister is leaving America for the first time and visiting me for two weeks of adventures!)

For now, sunglasses and besos…

xo,
Lela

What I Wore – Festival (No Mud, Please)

Zalando is one of those websites I always end up shopping from should I dare open one of their e-mails or linked tweets. Though the products are in the 1000s, a bit of smart searching always lands you a sale deal; one (or two) too good to leave unbasketed.

In this case, it was their festival guide that did the persuading. A girl can never have too many white tees, skinny jeans or shiny boots, AMIRITE?

What I Wore:
Bibi Lou boots in silver (no longer available)
Schiesser Revival vest in white
Just Female black skinny jeans
Mini neon pink leather satchel (handmade)
