Earlier this week I popped along to Seven Dials in Covent Garden with fellow blogger (and new BFF!) Angelica AKA One Little Vice. This night was very special as it was Seven Dials annual Christmas Shopping Evening, where all the shops offer 20% off, plus free drinks and snacks. This seemed like the perfect occasion to wear my latest festive jumper purchase!
This funky jumper was one of my Black Friday purchases from Beyond Retro. I just love the bright colours and collar detail. I paired it with my Forever 21 tartan skirt, vintage Chelsea boots, green socks and added some sparkle with my glittery satchel from Paperchase.
I took some time in my lunch break with a work colleague to take these quick outfit photos. I walk past this pathway everyday and have been wanting to use it as a backdrop on the blog for a while. It kind of feels like the dividing line between Autumn and Winter with the trees still covered with golden leaves on one side, and the bare branches on the other.
Now, skip ahead a few hours to Seven Dials!
The first place we stopped by was The Seeker. They handed out fresh meat, cheese & bread along with glasses of wine whilst we walked around the store taking in the wonderful classic footwear designs.
Next up was a quick stop at Orla Kiely. One of my favourite designers, I could quite happily live in anything she makes. How lovely are the light bulb signs in the shop window? I love everything about this shop, even the floor boards feature the pretty Orla Keily stem print. A few days after this evening, I wore the very same jumper with a very sparkly Orla Kiely skirt for the #BloggersXmasParty.
Last but not by no means least, we visited Bolongaro Trevor, just so I could try on this festive looking skirt that I spotted in the shop window. This is definitely going on my Christmas wishlist!
