Alright you lot?
Sorry I’ve been a bit quiet over the weekend, have been busy trying to fit a social life in with my work. However, things are about to change…I have finally been offered a full-time permanent job!! This means I can quit my weekend job. No idea what I’m going to do with my first weekend off in 2 weeks time. I think I’ve forgotten how to relax and unwind since I’ve been working 7 days a week. That’s the good news of the week. The bad news came today, when I found out someone has stolen my bank card details and used them to pay their Westminster Council Tax of over £1,000!! *Major sad face* So my card has been cancelled and I won’t have money to spend on pretty clothes for about a week whilst this is all sorted (BOO!). Good thing blogging is free!!
Today’s outfit post is actually from a week ago. My ex housemate Emily, who I haven’t seen for about a year as she’s been swanning off looking after babies all over the globe, has come to London for a few weeks. Her first weekend back just happened to be the same weekend of The Lord Mayor’s Show along the Southbank. We arranged to meet with my current housemate Elie and another ex housemate Chloe, to enjoy the fireworks by the river whilst having a massive catch up. Here’s what I wore.
My navy duffle coat is from Joy. I have a new obsession with this store. Their clothes are very Mad Men but with a more modern and up-to-date feel. The tartan mini skirt and burgundy cable knit jumper are both from Oasap. My blue and green tartan scarf is vintage, bought from the Charity shop I volunteered in earlier this year.
These warm and snuggly socks are from ASOS. Unfortunately they’re not on the site anymore, but ASOS have a big selection of other socks and tights available. Wearing brand new socks for the first time is one of the best feelings in the World (Come on, I can’t be the only weirdo to think this). My boots are from Shoe Zone and have literally been my soul mates the last 2 winters. They were super cheap and they keep my toes nice and warm with the soft, fluffy lining.
Here we are eagerly awaiting the fireworks. Left to right is: Elie, Chloe, Emily and Moi! It was great to all be together after so long apart. Bring on next weekend when we do it all again!
Now this is what I call a Filch’s Reunion! We’re quite colour coordinated with our dark reds.
I’m not even going to show my poor attempts at photographing fireworks (tis bloody hard ya know!), but I will show you some pictures from my late night, lonely walk through London.
I absolutely love Christmas, so you can imagine my delight when I spotted this big, bad boy! The Traditional German Christmas Market Stalls have also just landed along the Southbank. I took a little trip there after work this weekend with Chloe. There’ll be some sparkly photos coming soon!
