Vintage Levi's denim jacket and bag, Topshop jeans, H&M beanie, ASOS chelsea boots studded shirt gifted from Melissa :)

Heyyyyy guys, I'm back with an outfit. Yeeeeeah.

So today, Melissa (but I'm sure you're all familiar with her and her awesome blog already :D) and I went to Portobello Market for some vintage shopping and for me to give her her Christmas present. I forgot to give it to her before Christmas so that's why she got it today haha. We both found some really good bargains. I got a new (old) school bag for £10, then two other gorgeous bags for £5 each from an amazing stall which I will definitely be returning to next time I go there. I also found a lovely fisherman knit jumper for only £5 (mind-blown.) and a red oversized checked shirt for £2 which I think I'll be wearing to bed as it's so big and I have enough checked shirts to be honest. Then after some lunch at Caffe Nero, we decided to go to High Street Kensington to check out some of the sales. Before today I hadn't actually been sales shopping yet as I wasn't too bothered this year and from what I saw online, they didn't seem that good as they have been previously. Having said that, I did find some bargains. First of all we went to Urban Outfitters. I love the UO in High Street Kensington, it's 3 huge floors of goodness. I found the Facehunter book, which I have been eyeing up forever and after getting it for Melissa a couple of years ago but I was so tempted to keep it for myself, for just £5. SO GOOD. Then I got some loafers from Topshop and a huge mug which I have been on the lookout for forever from Whittards. All in all I good shopping day where I ended up spending a bit more than I had planned, I need some shopping counselling, anyone wanna help me? I NEED HELP.

  8. You never look bad. Like Melissa you always look awesome!

    That coat looks like the right about of baggyness too, fantastic styled with the hat and red jeans too.

    Oh how I wish I could grab those sort of bargains, the charity shops round my ends aren't full of much!

  31. I love the close shots of the studs and little cross necklace; your look is the epitome of effortlessly stylish. And I think we all need a bit of shopping counselling in January, what with all the money spent on Christmas and the sales, sounds like you got some good bargains though!
