vest: H&M
skirt: H&M
jacket: topshop 
scarf: primark
boots: clothing at tesco*
ring: kukee
bracelet: black tied* and kukee

Super quick thrown together shopping outfit! I was wearing something else but I decided to change last minute as I'm going to go shopping this evening on Oxford Street. I know I may as well hand my money straight to Topshop at the end of the month but there are few things I've had my eye from other shops recently and I hate ordering online when you have to pay for shipping, Seriously, more shops need to cotton on that free shipping= people ordering! Most of this stuff is all old, I bought the coat when I first started at university over four years ago (OMG, sob!) and wore it so much! Then it worked it's way to the back of my wardrobe but this sort of style is ~popular~ at the moment so good job I didn't chuck it! Hard to believe that its August and Im wearing a scarf… be serious!

  2. Lily this outfit is literally perfect! Really jealous of the jacket, if it was still in stock it'd be mine - one of those things that will always come back a few seasons later and really worth keeping!

  26. I was shopping in Oxford Street tonight too! It's funny because when I got to Forever 21, I was thinking that last I went to F21 I saw you there as it was when you were filming for them for some event? Can't remember when that was though! I work near Topshop - they take a lot of my £££ haha!

  36. I am loving the jacket! :o) I completely feel the same about shipping.. I resent paying for it - although Dorothy Perkins and New Look both now do free delivery to store which is quite good especially if they never have the size in! I have had really good service from both!
