what i wore
top: river island
coat: topshop
leggings: new look
shoes: office
bracelet: black-tied*
rings: jwlry
nails: ?

Went to Westfields for a bit today, Needed to take some stuff back to River Island (which meant I ended up buying more River Island!) and buy some of my MAC essentials (MSF natural!). I hadn't been to the Stratford one since the Look Show months and months ago. Thankfully it wasn't half as busy as that time! I actually haven't been shopping since I moved down here so it was nice to have a look around.  There is not much I like in the shops at the moment though- Pastels are growing on me but summer clothes really arent my thing. I know I'll be struggling come summer! Im clinging onto my winter clothes for dear life!

I opted for the comfiest and easiest thing I could think of today, Oversized shirt/leggings combo is always good for shopping I think. I also wore this hat as I'm getting so sick of my hair. Some miracle product or styling tool needs to come into my life asap before I chop it all off. Black Tied sent me some amazing goodies last week and I've just got round to wearing this tiny cross bracelet!

I managed to fall over walking down the main road to my house earlier which was probably the most embarassing moment of my whole life. I've done some pretty cringe things over the years but falling over outside a busy tube station with tons of people around you is one of those "ground, Y U NO swallow me up" moments. It wasn't even a stumble it was as full on face to the floor moment! After the initial shock I was more gutted that I squashed my sandwich. Priorities.

  4. Love the coat, looks amazingly warm. Not sure it would look right on me though. And oh my goodness, I have fallen flat on my face quite a few times, usually it`s whilst walking up stairs. It`s so embarrassing and hilarious at the same time!

  5. I've once fallen down on Baker Street and people rushed to me to help! It was so embarassing, since I've actually SLIPPED on my shoe. I was sure that the post will be about ModelsOWN Beetlejuice collection. ;)

  6. I wore that exact top with leggings today! Except I wore a dress under it because the shirt is far to short for my fat arse (sigh). Lol ;)

  8. Just my kind of shopping outfit! Gorgeous bracelet too. I have a fear of falling over in public, not least because I find it hilarious when it happens to other people (stifling a laugh is not a talent of mind) :)

  13. I love the shirt! Oversized shirts are so comfy! I feel for you falling over outside a busy tube station, I fell over in the tube station once, on the stairs just before the ticket barrier, other people were coming down the stairs at the same time too! xo

  16. Love this outfit, especially the top, funnily enough I've just made the mothership order me the similar one from Topshop for my birthday even though it's not til March, just to make sure I get myself one as I don't have the money to spend on it myself. I didn't know River Island did one too!

  18. Ah, terribly sorry about the fall! I slipped on the ice yesterday and threw hot chocolate everywhere, losing a significant amount of marshmallows in the process. Gutting. Anyway, another lovely outfit - amazing shirt!

  37. Aw bless ya! I did that walking through a very busy M&S store not long back... new slippy shoes & being late = me on the floor! lol it's the awkward instant red cheeks and scuttling off as if no one even notion iced that I hate!

  43. I'm loving your bracelet, I prefer the Stratford westfield, as my favourite shops are near each other, I been to Shepherd Bush one two weeks ago and I love the fact that they have Debenhams and House of Fraser. Remember if you drop in some place, you won't see those people again, so there is nothing to be ashamed of hahah (that what I always say to myself). xx

  44. Lol I did that once when I was walking past Madame Tussauds but I managed to save the KitKat Chunky I was eating so that's the main thing!
