Camden Dungarees - OOTD

Evening folks!

Today is a big day as my blog has turned 5 years old!! I was going to celebrate with a fun little shoot but I'm all ill and gross at the moment, and there's not enough makeup in the World to hide the bags under my eyes and my Rudolph red nose. So, instead I'm showing off an outfit from last summer that I never got around to posting. That means back to photos from my old camera - apologies!



This outfit was a lot of fun to put together! I had been lusting over denim dungarees for a while when eventually I came across this pair from H&M. Unfortunately they don't seem to do them in this deep indigo colour anymore, but they do have them in a lighter blue. They also have this fab grey pair in the sale for just £15! As it was quite a nice sunny day, I thought I'd add some yellow with my Orla Kiely for Uniqlo long sleeved top. It is part of their HEATTECH range. It's basically a type of thermal top which features Japanese technology which means it's a thin and light stretchy material which not only keeps you warm in the winter, but can also help keep you cool on a hot day too! Keep scrolling down for a special giveaway... These yellow brogues are one of my favourite pairs of shoes. I bought them from Primark for just £6 and they've been brightening up my outfits for the last couple of years. I finished off my look with a pair of fake geeky glasses (yeah, I'm one of those people!).

These photos were taken on a walk from Kentish Town to Camden. You're always bound to find a pretty coloured door along these streets. I love Camden in the summer. There's always the markets for a good old rummage, tasty food from all over the World, a beautiful canal to sit along in the sun, oh and a parrot...?











Now, to celebrate my Bloggiversary (that's what people call it, right?), I've decided to host a little giveaway to say thank you to everyone for reading, sharing, liking, favouriting, retweeting and commenting on my little blog. This isn't just a competition for the girls, it's also open to the men out there, hell, even kids and babies can get in on this too (but they might need a bit of help entering...). Remember the HEATTECH range from Uniqlo I told you about earlier in this post? As most of us are feeling the cold, I thought it would be very appropriate to giveaway one piece of your choice from the collection. It's not just tops they do in this special winter technology, they also have trousers, leggings, tights and socks.


This is not a sponsored prize, it will be funded from my own pocket. Just a little something to show my appreciation to all of you :)

To be entered, all you'll need to do is leave a little comment below with your email address. You can also retweet or share my blog links on Twitter and Facebook for extra entries. I'll be drawing the winner old school style with names in a hat (a vintage style top hat of course!). You have until 9pm Monday 9th February 2015 GMT. So what are you waiting for!!

Thanks again to everyone who has ever interacted with my blog over the last 5 years. I can promise you'll see it grow a lot this year. Watch this space :)

Holy sh*t, dude! Congratulations! That is a long time to be consistently awesome. Haha :D I'm loving your overalls, by the way. I kind of need some black denim overalls. The ones you are wearing look tailored to fit you. You look great and I love the colorful retro top and bright shoes!

Absolutely love this post lovely - my favourite posts are fashion posts with some lifestyle thrown in too so I love what you've done here. Also, how amazing are your dungaree's, I so want a pair but know I couldn't rock them anywhere near as well as you do :)
