I thought I would inject a little bit of the ol’ colour into my wardrobe with it being Easter and all. That colour comes in the form of this Topshop jumper I picked up with vouchers which I was luckily given at Christmas and somehow lasted until February. Topshop vouchers have never lasted me that long. At University I would spend my money first and save my vouchers to go shopping on those end of term days on which 20p had to stretch to buy breakfast, lunch and dinner. I picked up this jumper along with the most easily re-wearable denim skirt and some staple black boots which I had my eye on for a fair ol’ while.
I teamed the jumper with my second-hand Dr Martens which I have worn solidly for over 12 months as they are the comfiest – not very fash’un blogger of me to admit but I think they are going to last me for a bloomin’ long time. I paired the jumper and Dr Martens with ye ol’ faithful Oxfam skirt which has seen me through many of those ‘nothing to wear’ days (here & here, to name a few)! I took this outfit for a spin whilst mooching around the abundance of fabric shops around Shepards Bush Market. On the way back I stopped of a Traid. Traid is a charity shop a short walk from the Shepherds Bush tube. I ended up spending a fair amount of time amongst the rails rammed with second-hand greatness. With high-street, affordable vintage and designer brands (I spotted the most beautiful Jonathan Saunders dress) to choose from, I will definitely be heading back when the next payday comes around. And I’ll tell y’all, I can’t come quick enough!
