Yesterday I was Batman, Today I'm a Transformer. I picked up this necklace from Primark last night when I was at Westfields. It was a whopping £8, but I couldn't resist it, I loved the mixture of gold and black, and as someone who doesn't particularly like gold it really stood out to me. As for the jacket, well I picked it up and really loved it. I liked the leather and the boucle (is that what it's called?) mix jackets and I thought this would be a nice addition. It is however predominately dark blue, and I know there is that fashion rule about not wearing blue and black but I really like the way it looks together! It was labelled as £25, but when it was scanned it came up as £10 which pretty much sealed the deal for me! Makes up for the pricey necklace I suppose! I have to admit this is one of my favourite outfits I've blogged about, I just love it!

Tonight I'm off for big eats with two of my favourite people I've met through blogging, EmmaKate. Kate's moving back to Scotland so we are having our equivalent to the last supper at Meat Liqour. Expect instagram pic's galore! Trust me, you get fatter just looking at the food at Meat Liqour!

  17. This necklace is Primark?!?!?!?! It's the first thing I spotted from your outfit and though I NEED that!! Was expecting a hefty price tag that I can't justify right now, but I know where I'm now heading on my lunch hour tomorrow!!
    I had this good experience from Primark too, LOVE it when that rare Primark moment happens!!

  36. I love the jacket! I almost got it myself, but my other bouclé jacket from Primark was good to go to the bin in a matter of days. I may risk it though! Now let's just pray it will also be a tenner in my local Primark!

  55. Wonderful outfit, as usual !
    I follow your blog for few months now and im going to London for few days in September, i was wondering if you know any places where i could go shopping.. I, of course, already planned to go to Camden and Primark (we don't have it in France so i have this urge to go there haha) but i just wanted to know.

    have a nice day Lily,
