As you all know I was in London last weekend for the #LDNBloggersParty. I managed to squeeze in some shopping on Sunday at Westfield Shopping Centre. If any Irish Fashionistas are planning on visiting London for a girly trip I would strongly recommend Westfield. It is easily accessible on the tube line and as the shopping centre is so huge there is still comfort to browse the shops without feeling cramped, even at weekends. We went there for opening time on Sunday and literally did not leave until the shops were closing. If anyone can shop, us Irish girls can!
I went for a really different look with my hair and pinned it in a high up-do with a quiff. This is a good hairstyle for a casual shopping trip and still looks stylish. I wore a black tube skirt from H&M, printed crop top from Primark/Penneys, red converse, earrings from Forever 21, a statement necklace from Primark/Penneys and pink mirrored Puma sunglasses. Sometimes I like to add something fun and sporty to an outfit, this is a great way to make an outfit look unique and I think that the Puma sunglasses worked in this case. I would not usually wear heels on a shopping trip as it is really just impractical. I walk around in stilettos every day in work and when out at the weekends so I like to embrace flats as often as I can, especially when walking around the shops all day! Tube skirts are really popular at the moment and you do not need to be a super leggy model to work this look. I have terribly short legs and I really like the way the tube skirt looked with the crop top tucked into the waistband.
It was an excellent time to visit Westfield as the Summer sales are currently on. Some of the shops I visited were Lipsy, Guess, Gilly Hicks and Bershka . It was great because living in the West of Ireland I cannot visit these stores as often as I would like to! I picked up some nice pieces which I am really looking forward to styling over the next few weeks. The photos below are from my instagram page you can follow me @bec_boop.
