Dress: Courtesy of Urban Outfitters. Shirt: American Apparel. 
Loafers: TopShop. Bag: Balenciaga. Sunglasses: Rayban. Nails: 'lemon' from Barry M.

My absolute favorite thing about these pictures is the lady with the blue nails who's looking at the camera like "WTF!?!?". Hilarious!

I went Bikini shopping in Oxford Circus today. I adored all the ones in my earlier post but they were all £100 and up. A little too much for scraps of material right? Anyway I found a very cute one in River Island that I'm in love with.

I think the frills add a flirty vibe and the print feels vintage. I'm very happy :) If any of you fancy one of these get the size up, the bikini pants are so tiny! They almost showed my whole bum!

There was some great stuff in River Island today... For those of you that don't already know, River Island have done a Miu Miu 'inspired' shoe... They come in both navy blue and pink. I didn't buy a pair but I've done all the research for you. They are obviously not as gorgeous and lovely as the Miu Miu ones but I think if you want a little fashion fix then for £50 they're great. 


  1. Photos in the middle of Oxford Circus?! You brave, brave girl. I nearly get run over every time I go :p I loooove your topshop flats!

  2. I absolutely love this bikini, I actually need a new one, I'm off to the seaside this week, then again I do mean in England so maybe I won't need one!

    So jealous of all your Urban Outfitters freebies, how did that come about if you don't mind me asking!

    nice loafers too x

  3. Such a cute bathing suit! The colours would be amazing on you.

  4. I swear I cracked UP when I scrolled to that lady with the blue nails ALL up in your photoshoot!!! You could've easily chosen to leave that photo out, but those random bits of humor + candid moments you put in your posts really make your blog that more enjoyable. Love these crowd shots (and that bikini!)

  7. yeah you are right...river island have some lovely new stuff. TopSHop has a sale but unfortunately they don't have nice clothes. They do have some really gorgeous clutches. Check my twitter and i posted two. Anyway I love your loafers.

    Ashley.. I'm so sorry for this inappropriate question but what is the model of your RayBan sunglasses?
    I'm in love and I'm looking for them the whole day. )

  26. I really wish there was a river island here in the USA. Or at least ships here!

  27. Lizzie- Companies sometimes give bloggers clothes. I will always put 'courtesy' of if I haven't paid for something but I would never post an outfit that I didn't love!

    Mel- Yep, head kandy. I've had them for a while now and they've held up pretty well :)

    S.Ella- I thought the same thing!

    Echo- They are the classic black wayfarers... Medium sized lens I think.

    Lainey- It's a shop I always miss when I'm in LA... However you guys have all the best online stores and I have to pay huge customs fees to ship here so it balances out!

  28. I looove this street of happiness :)

  32. I saw these in River Island on Saturday and I knew they looked familiar! I had forgot that they were similar to the Miu Miu ones! I think they are pretty cute and so is the bikini :)


  34. Oxford Circus! That reminds me of last summer when I walked around Oxford street by myself! Only my uncomfortable loafers ruined the day.
