By The River…

April 17, 2012

This is my favorite kind of outfit, what makes it a big favorite is that it’s made up of mostly vintage. I wore it at the weekend when my Daddy came to visit us in London, we headed over to Kingston for lunch by the riverside. Sadly the weather wasn’t on our side as it was really cold and windy! I was really glad I packed my cardigan, scarf & hat in my tote bag. I thought while packing them I wouldn’t need it and I was being silly for taking them but boy was I glad I did!

What I’m wearing –

Dress, Bag, Scarf & Jacket – Vintage

Hat – Topshop

Shoes c/o Zalando

Photos – Shooting Dave

    I like the forward thinking! I always seem to be caught out by the rain whether I am too cold or too warm

    You’ve just reminded me that I need to pack my hat and scarf in my work bag. Every day I forget and every morning I freeze on the way to the train station!

      I’m a size 14, can go down to a 12 and up to a 16 depending where I shop but usually buy a 14. Vintage is much better for my figure I find clothes fit better and don’t make me feel fat like high street stores do! Glad you like my style. X

        I’m a size 18 trying to get it down to a 16 maybe less … hard work ahead of me this summer :-). Has a lot to do with comfort eating (my dad died last year) but no more excuses and the gym it is. Just thought it was s nice to see someone with a beautiful figure look so lovely … no stick insect 🙂

        Yes I agree, when I first started blogging I was worried I’d get a backlash as I’m not thin but luckily I haven’t. I too have put on weight, think my move to london did it and I’m trying to eat healthy now to keep it at a controlled level. It’s hard work but will be worth it. Do you blog outfit photos? I’ll check out your blog when I get home. X
