Let It Be

Ello ello ello!

On Sunday, Magnum celebrated their 25th birthday by taking over the whole of Regent Street and giving away free ice cream. Of course I popped down to have a gander!

The sun was shining so it seemed like the perfect time to show off some new purchases. Here's what I wore.






I went for a monochrome look with just a dash of red. My leather look trousers were an eBay purchase originally from Topshop, and my Beatles top is also from Topshop. I don't know which item I was most excited to be wearing for the first time - my new bag or shoes. Let's start with the bag...


This super glitzy satchel is from Paperchase. I literally fell in love the moment I spotted it instore. I had to have it, I couldn't even wait for payday! It just screams Dorothy Gale. They have it in glittery pink or sparkly silver. I'd suggest grabbing one whilst you can!

Now on to my new shoes...





These beauties are from Matalan, bought in their mega sale for just £6!! I also bought 2 more pairs of shoes and a skirt with a grand total of £28 - absolute bargain! Matalan always have fab sales, so definitely check it out when you get the chance, and before all the best pieces are gone!







I couldn't wear a blazer without some badges! The 'Hello Sailor' one was a gift from The Maritime Museum in Greenwich, and the 'Prefect' brooch is another vintage find from Snooper's Paradise in Brighton.

Right, back to our day. I ventured out with my housemate Lee. We started with some lunch at Joe and the Juice. Try their Power Shake - strawberry and banana. Delish! Lee also recommends their avocado sandwich.



Next, we took a wander down Regent Street to see the skies lined with giant golden balloons, free ice cream, a Bollywood dance class, live music and a dress designed by Henry Holland, inspired by a Magnum ice cream.




We finished our sunny day with a lovely walk to Waterloo across the Golden Jubilee Bridge. This is my ultimate favourite walk to do in London. The view from the bridge is just... no words, I love it!





Thanks for reading, and please don't be shy, come say hi, I don't bite, promise :)
