Boucle Jacket and Bow Tie in Notting Hill (London - Part 2)

Hello all!
For the first of my few days enjoying the long Jubilee weekend around London, my lovely friend Bianca and I spent an absolutely gorgeous day in Notting Hill exploring, sitting in a street cafe sipping frappuccinos, lusting over the beautiful rows of houses, snooping around the markets and enjoying the local 'sights' (and there are definitely some interesting 'sights' to be seen - mainly involving who I can only assume to be the resident local mad woman throwing cake at pigeons. Yes you read that correctly..)
I apologise for the fact that you've all already seen this outfit before - but at the very least you can be assured from these photos that I do actually wear my 'blog outfits' out and about in real life! (There's nothing wrong with embellishment for the camera, of course - but we all know it's not unusual for some outfits across the internet to never leave the house/back garden!)
(Boucle Jacket : ASOS. Bow Tie/Skirt : Primark(!?) Shirt/Belt : Topshop. Shoes : Topshop 'Allegras'. Sunglasses : eBay. Bag : Chanel.)

  31. Such a cute outfit and I love the photographs, especially of the coloured houses and rings. The photograph with the red house in it...Well I love the house next to that (the one with foliage covering it) and have decided that when I win the lottery I will buy it...haha in my dreams. Streets of houses are nothing without trees and the street pictured is so beautiful.

  43. Your outfit reminds me of Blair from Gossip Girl! :)

    Oh, and that pigeon lady you're talking about... When I was in London, I also saw an old lady feeding the pigeons. There were hundreds of them and it was really creepy - like that scene from the Home Alone. :D
