Today is my 23rd Birthday!
I could not have wished for a more gorgeous day so far, perfect frosty-come-sunny weather, a walk along London’s Southbank, hot drinks aplenty, waking up with my boyfriend and being surrounded by my favourite girls for the rest of the day and evening.
In honour of the freezing weather I donned my favourite new wardrobe addition – my Timberland parka coat. Some of you may remember that my quest for the perfect parka began some time ago, having perused the many variations available on the high street it was not until I set eyes on this vintage beauty from Mary Portas’s Living & Giving Shop in Westbourne Grove (top shopping tip – second hand designer at ahhmazing prices) that I finally committed my dollar.
So far it has proved to be the best investment this Winter.
Pops of yellow via my Accessorize bag and vintage scarf sated my colour needs. Happy MB.
My favourite jumper! “Hey Mon, Be Cool” Gift from my Sis a few years back.
Thank you so much to all of you who have left me messages so far, and all of the people who have made today special. This evening I am trialling a few new hot spots in Notting Hill – preceded by pizza.
