OOTD – Exploring Southwark

January 12, 2015

The other weekend I went out around the Southward area with my friend Kirk, as we now have the same camera and thought it was a good idea to go out for a walk to practice photography. The day was horrendously cold, meaning a great deal of layering had to be done. However, I removed the coat for the outfit photos, because gorgeous army jacket. Hello, how cool is it? This was also one of my Xmas gifts from Jasiminne and Henry, from their shop Regimental Vintage. It was another one of the pieces I wore for the photoshoot that I absolutely fell in love with. I love me some militaria, what can I do?


Before I let you enjoy all the other photos of the Southwark area that I took, I’ll give you the rundown of the outfit: Jacket – British Army, Regimental Vintage; Navy Dress – TK Maxx ; Knee High Socks – H&M; Leather Satchel – Unbranded, from a blog sale; Black Beret – Dorothy Perkins, on sale; Black Scarf – Oscar de la Renta, via TK Maxx; Boots – Office, via Ebay




At one point we bumped into this little guy. for some reason there was a pile of fried chicken and he wasn’t fussy about it…

Hello the mushrooms!



This isn’t a great pic but I wanted to record the fact that I hadn’t seen one of these Peugeots since I was a kid back in Lisbon. We called them ‘frog mouths’ because of how the front end is shaped.

On this day I also visited the Cross Bones Graveyard and ended up at the Imperial War Museum. I’ll write about both in more depth soon. The visit to the Imperial War Museum wasn’t really planned, otherwise I wouldn’t have worn my jacket on this day. It certainly warranted a few funny looks! I am enjoying exploring these bits of London, I hope you enjoy exploring them through my eyes as well.

    Beautiful photos, and hello the mushroom!!! Great styling on your jacket, too. The cold is worth it if you get some sunshine!
