Monday Musing - Festival fashion

Today's Monday Musing is dedicated to outfit prepping for Saturday as I am off to Groove Control in Brixton and I can't bloody wait.  Rokit Vintage recently got in touch and kindly offered to kit me out for the event so yesterday I ventured up to their Camden store and had a dreamy time picking out vintage gems to create the perfect party outfit!  

It's not so much a festival, more daytime drinking, on a rooftop, listening to old skool garage but in regards to outfit ideas I am still going to go down the festival fashion route. So with this in mind I picked up outfits all suitable for a festival.  I left the store with patchwork denim, a sheer cover-up, co-ords and some pretty dresses (check out my INSTAGRAM for a sneak peak) so have plenty of fabulous looks to play around with before Saturday.  

When I think about planning outfits I always head over to Pinterest to get some inspiration, I look back over previous pins and re-pin new favourite looks so below are a few images I pinned today...

An old skirt

Fabulous people of the Internet, tell me, what on earth can I do to get rid of knobbly knees?  The older I get the more knobbly they are becoming, it's a complete nightmare.  Not only do I have short stumpy legs, I now have knees that resemble a 90 year old.  Why and how is this happening?  Am I really expected to use anti aging cream on my knees as well as my face?

So, for the purpose of this blog post and to make my stumpy, knobbly self appear longer and less knobbly (how many times can I say the word knobbly) I hopped on this concrete block that I stumbled across whilst out outfit snapping.  Get a good angle on a photograph and your winning, still a wee bit knobbly but we seem to have elongated my legs a tad which, in my world, is always a bonus.  
*Must shoot all outfit shots on tall concrete blocks*

Anyway, less about the state of my knees - lets chat about the outfit...

This skirt is OLD, I am talking OLD, I'd say New Look circa 2008.  The fit was a squeeze, (hence the slight ripples in the front) but apart from that I was happy to stumble across it.  The rust colour and 60's mini vibe could totally work for being this season, had it a set of buttons down the middle I would have been laughing!  Add my usual splash of denim, a classic stripe and my obligatory gold hoops I think I have bought it right back to 2015.

What do you guys think?

A pop of green

What a week it has been already, ridiculous to say that considering it's only Tuesday but man has it's been a busy one. One of my main issues being, an outfit for Ascot on Saturday - first world problems. I have been an indecisive mess over what to wear (Libra life) and tonight has been spent traipsing up and down Oxford Street, I now have 3 options all resulting in the fact that I won't be able to eat until Sunday.  Great.

Enough of my stupid outfit woes...

This look was from Sunday when Carmen and I ventured out to the back of beyond to visit Ikea.  We thought it was only up the road but it turned out we needed 3 forms of transport and with Carms impulsive shopping habits, a car to haul it all back in.  We managed to reign  it in though and got some bargains, once safely back on a tube line and in zone 2 (Brixton AKA Carms new place of residence) we had a wander hunting out possible new shoot locations!  It's pretty lively near Brixton Village so we shimmied up a side road for these shots...

Feeling blue

Hello, hello!  I honestly can't believe it's Friday, this week has been a complete blur.  
Work has been mad but awesome, I spent a couple of days out of the office shooting some street style around London and enjoyed the Shoes: Pleasure and pain exhibition at the V&A, keep your eyes peeled for the post!  I cannot wait for a lazy Saturday morning and some chill time this weekend, my pyjamas and fluffy socks are calling me!

This outfit was what I wore last Saturday when I spent the day mooching around  Broadway market, you can read all about it HERE. I picked this dress up at charity shop years ago and it's a warm weather faithful for me, it's quite girlie so I toned it down a tad with a denim jacket and trainers.  My necklace is from Happiness Boutique and is the perfect delicate touch,  I have found myself wearing it most days and am obsessed with layering necklaces.

Lifestyle: Saturday strolling

Do you remember when I said that I wanted to add more of a lifestyle dimension to my blog?  Well, since making that rather sweeping statement I have actually only written one post about my life outside my love/obsession for outfit planning and OOTD's.  It was all about my move to London which you can read all about HERE and, it was some 2 months ago which isn't the regular lifestyle fixture I was imagining! 

So, armed with my camera this weekend and in and amongst outfit shooting I documented my day on Saturday for you all to see!  I had friends from back home to stay so we ventured to one of my favourite weekend haunts and enjoyed lunch, market mooching and prosecco in a field!  

Broadway Market in Hackney is the perfect Saturday strolling especially when the sun is out as there are pubs aplenty and so much tasty food from the market to tempt you in to breaking that diet!  Isn't that what weekends are for?
