(Jacket: Millie Mackintosh at ASOS, Shirt: C/O Ghost, Jeans: Boden, Glasses: Ray Ban, Shoes: C/O Toms)

One of the things that surprised me most about my recent trip to Manchester was how much it reminded me of a certain Big Apple. The towering red brick walls lining gridded streets, an occasional fire escape ladder tucked next to an apartment and the open-plan Soho-style lofts overlooking the bustling Northern Quarter. Perhaps I'm seeing things through rose-tinted glasses (much like when someone comes to London and appreciates the not-so-romantic peeing rain), but exploring the city gave me a twinkle of the other side of the Atlantic, despite having lots of beautiful quirks of it's own.

Anyway- before we grabbed brunch on the Sunday morning at Evelyn's, Joe and I took a mooch around a sleepy sun-kissed Northern Quarter (the after effects of a late Saturday night of dancing), and stumbled upon some more of the gorgeous street art (another thing I loved about the city). Wearing a favourite jacket and some wardrobe staples, it was the perfect lazy Sunday morning (and all the better when the big breakfast arrived too)!

  18. Liv I love your jacket! I've been looking for one similar in that warm colour shade for soooo long.
    I live fairly close to Manchester and never quite seen it's appeal, but I don't think I've given it a fair chance! Whenever I go I do always try to explore the Northern Quarter, I'm glad you love it too!
    After reading your couple of posts on Manchester, I'm feeling a visit!

  20. I stayed in the Northern Quarter earlier this year - I loved it too. Didn't see as much of it as I'd like to as I was on a hen do - but I'd love to go back! Love the brick backdrop to your photos.. H x

  21. I love the colour of that jacket, it's so so pretty, and it's even prettier paired up with that top! I'm glad that you enjoyed the Northern Quarter, it's one of the coolest place in Manchester! I used to love walking around it for hours admiring the street art!

  25. I've said it before but I'll say it again, I'm in awe of Joes photography skills! Can he come and teach my boyfriend to take photos like he does!? The street art from Manchester that you keep posting is really catching my eye. It really does sound like the perfect sunday morning that is for sure!

  26. Haha, I'm so that person who romanticizes the London rain! My boyfriend (who's a Londoner) laughed his ass of when I said that one of the things on my list of things I look forward to about living in London was the rain! xx

  36. Love the backdrop, I always find shots against a contrasting background are cool and contrasting; I wouldn't usually wear a jacket like that but I love the button detailing :)
