(Jacket: Whistles, Jumper: C/O Nordic Poetry, Shorts: Vintage, Boots & Lipstick: Topshop)

Having never really been an avid vintage shopper (gasp, hiss, boo!) it seems of late, I've definitely taken to browsing collections online, be it on ASOS Marketplace, eBay (when I have endless amounts of patience and a mission to complete) or little online gems like Nordic Poetry. When the ladies got in touch with me, I was a little dubious the shop would merely be riddled with oversized 80s jumpers, static calf length dresses and curtain print galore- but alas! How wrong could I have been. With careful selected and well photographed pieces, having a good ol' browse couldn't have been easier, and I ended up opting for this (ever-so-slightly-George-Michael-in-'Last-Christmas'-esque) jumper, which I have lived in since it arrived (it even goes with my tartan pjs- that's a jumper worth having!) and have worn it out on many chilly days out in London.

Speaking of which, these pictures were taken whilst having a pit-stop cupcake and tea with my main ladies in between snappy some street style! We headed into the Primrose Bakery in Covent Garden, and indulged in some of the most filling brownies known on earth (never a bad thing, honestly) and swooned, and snapped the treats we couldn't quite stomach. It was such a cute ickle place, with the most twee retro interior, and the biggest windows- making for the perfect complimentary add on of endless people watching- just right.
