Spent the day strolling down Bayswater Market where the usual struggling artiste lay their own art pieces. It was such a good sunday morning though the sky was deceivingly grey. Found some really great pieces by Richard Price which were paintings of the sea that was inspired by the coast of England. Then, managed to finally end up at Portebello Market having the usual hummingbird cupcakes and people watch.
I guess one word that described my look for that day was “THRIFTY”. Most of the pieces came from a store called PRIMARK! This store is really a god-sent for every single student because it is basically a huge store dedicated to all things fashion without the usual bank breaking prices! I mean I know people who really despise the store and think it is only for the lower class! However, when your on a budget and a student this helps in feeding your retail cravings 🙂 Plus, the quality is not too shabby. I literallly got my strip knit dress for 8 pounds and a scarf for 5!!! BARGAIN? I think so 🙂

Spent my saturday morning strolling around west london;s farmers market which always gives me a burst of excitement. There hundreds of delicacies and random hob-knobs laid. However , my go-to-foods are the lamb baguettes and Monmouth Coffee! Every londoner has got to be aware of the amazing Monmouth coffees which results in a queue that goes around the corner. A definite must!
Today was quite a typical british saturday morning with temperatures climaxing at 12 degrees. So, decided to pull out the leather jacket and my new purchase- the turban headband! I was super inspired to get it when I saw it on the rack though it is really an acquired taste. It definitely highlights a fashion for function ❤
One person who carries the leather jacket look flawlessly is Alexa Chung. I have always been inspired by her because not only is she gorgeous but she is an accidental style icon. Her fashion eye is effortlessly perfect and no matter what she puts on it becomes an instant must-wear look. She definitely has the look and attitude to carry off the classic edgy look without having to try so hard.
Been busy with orientation at university lately and yes, it will be an absolutely insane year!!! However, i am more than ecstatic for it especially with all the amazing and accomplished people that are also attending the course. Above are just some photos I took in Vancouver 🙂
Autumn is starting to settle in and I’m loving it.
