A Peek into my Wardrobe

Hello everyone! This post is just going to be an update of the recent looks I've posted onto LookBook and Chictopia.
First up is this outfit I wore the day I got to ride on the little ferry on the River Thames.





This was before the rain came to ruin our English Spring. The trousers are Primark and are so light and perfect for spring/summer. My shoes are vintage which I bought from Camden Market almost 2 years ago. A lot of my wardrobe is navy and nautical so these shoes go perfectly with almost everything I own!

This second outfit is what I wore for my lunch date with my two lovely Irish friends, Luke and Jenny.





I am very proud of managing to nab this bag for £1! Its from StylistPick, a website which specialises in shoes and handbags and create individual showrooms based on what you like. They were celebrating reaching 100,000 likes on facebook by offering the first 100 people an item for £1. So I quickly scoured the site and found this beautiful flower print bag. It has a detachable strap and features faux snake skin.

My third outfit is what I wore to the V&A Museum, which everyone should visit as its oh so beautiful!





The checked pleated skirt I got from a clothes swap at one of my friends house. Clothes swapping is great and lots of fun. Keep an eye on my blog for a future big clothes swap happening in Hoxton very very soon!

Coming in at number 4 is this ensemble I wore for Judy's Vintage Affordable Fair at Spitalfields a few weekends ago.





The navy and cream lace dress I got from EBay for an absolutely steal price of just 99p! I adore this dress as its so easy to wear and can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. The navy and green checked blazer I bought from a Salvation Army charity shop just off Regents Street. It's becoming one of my favourite shops as they have loads of vintage 60s dresses. I took another trip there recently so keep an eye on my blog for a very special dress soon. Now lets talk about the boots. These are still my absolute favourite, from Topshop in a rich navy blue velvet. They're so easy to just slip on and spice up any outfit.

And lastly, this is what I wore Easter Sunday for my cousins beer festival, they're called Brodie's Beers and with loads of different flavours, you're sure to find something you'll love!





Here I am showing the family support with my Brodie's tee. The skirt I bought years ago from a little boutique in Donegal, Ireland. I used the belt from the skirt as a bow in my hair. The navy cardigan with a lace collar is what I bought from Judy's Vintage fair the day before. The wonderful hat I am wearing actually belongs to the woman behind me in the photo. I thinks she made it herself. Its just beautiful!

So that's all the catching up done. I 'll be back either later tonight or tomorrow with a new post. Also a big thank you to everyone who voted/favourited my look for the Spring Bloom contest on Chictopia. Unfortunately I didn't win, but it's the taking part that counts =]

Thanks for reading/following/supporting <3
