Sometimes I realise that things don’t always go to plan. Initially I set out to put up a blog post at least once a week. But you quickly realise, life gets busy especially in the last leg of summer when everyone is making the most of the last ray of sunshine before the dreaded cold dark winter days makes an appearance.
So on Sunday morning, I grabbed my wonderful friend Alex and we seized the opportunity of what was a beautiful summer morning headed down to Blackheath village and took some pictures for the blog. I initially toyed with the idea of snoozing in bed for the best part of the morning especially after what was seemingly a hectic week; however Alex was persistent and managed to make sure we had a productive morning.

The jumpsuit featured was purchased from my favourite shop at the moment. It is a small vintage shop that is located on a quiet street in South East London. The location of this shop doesn’t do it any favours as it seems somewhat hidden away. But it’s perfect for people like me that love to discover London’s hidden gems. The lovely lady who owns the shop, painstakingly changes the window display everyday and everything is presented ever so beautifully. As with most things you’ll buy from a vintage shop, the jumpsuit was a little too long on the legs and cost me twice what I paid in alteration although it was a small price to pay as I was completely in love with it when I tried it on.

Jumpsuit: Dorothy Perkins
Accessories: Urban outfitters
Bag: Billy bag
Head scarf: African Ankara fabric
Shoes: random shop in South East London.

As usual it was a lot of fun putting the look together even with the last minute addition of the scarf to create a contrasting print to the jumpsuit.
I always say, it’s not how much you spend on an outfit but how you wear it. The jumpsuit cost me less than an average MacDonald’s meal but definitely looked and felt a lot better than a MaccyD’s meal 🙂

Fashion for me must always contain a mix of individualism, character and an element of fun... My blog is the platform at which I can engage in two of my favorite things I.e. writing and fashion
