I arrived in London last week to spend some quality time with family and friends and also keep up to date with the latest fashion trends of course. It’s great to be back in Islington, my hood. Somehow I managed to synchronize my sojourn with the sale season. How did that happen? 😉
The official English summer hasn’t kicked in yet surprisingly (not) and the weather has been somewhat unpredictable. Rain and wind one minute and sun the next. Anyhoo you don’t visit London for the weather. There are far more interesting things to focus on like what to wear!
My casual outfit so far has consisted of skinny jeans and ankle boots! I’m living in my Primark jeans, I have so many pairs of them! Cropped and full length. They are such a great price and wear well. I found out whilst here that Primark is now stocked at ASOS!! Primark is the most popular high street chain in the UK due to their rock bottom prices and on trend fashion items. They never had an online store until now! Unfortunately they are currently only shipping to the UK. Bad news for Primarni fans worldwide.
My Keira suede ankle boots are courtesy of Zola Collection. I was gifted a pair just before I left for the UK and I am in love! I’m so glad I packed them as they have now become a wardrobe staple. They go with everything and are perfect for transeasonal weather. Just make sure you waterproof them!
I spotted this Goldie London Milly jacket on a rack at Raw Fashion Agency at a recent photo shoot but it wasn’t my size. I was desperate to get hold of it and managed to track down a new one on Ebay UK so it was waiting for me when I arrived. You can also buy it at Surfstich and it’s now half price. The leather and lace look is so hot right now and it instantly updates a casual outfit.
Add my Sterling and Hyde Robin Tote and a H&M tee and I’m London ready!
