So last week my sister and I headed to Richmond, on what was the sunniest day we’ve had so far this year. It genuinely felt like summer, and on days like that, it’s nice to get out of stuffy Central London, and head to the leafier areas on the water. Richmond is a beautiful part of London, with its little streets, pretty architecture and of course, the river. What’s even more fun though, for thrifters like us, is the amount of charity shops in such a small area, meaning it’s a great destination for a day of rummaging for treasure. Although on this particular trip I came home empty-handed, I’ve had extremely fruitful thrifting trips there before. I thought I’d share with you guys my summery outfit for the occasion, as well as a few snaps from the picturesque suburb.
Being as we were going on a thrifting trip, I thought it was only right to wear one of my newest thrift finds for the occasion. I scored this gorgeous polka dot dress for around £4 a few weeks ago, and love the flattering fit and vintage style. This dress will be featured in my upcoming thrift haul, so definitely keep an eye out for that! To toughen up the look I wore a biker jacket, which it was too hot for in the end, and some River Island biker boots, just so this cutesy dress felt more like me. As featured in my last outfit of the day (here), I also brought my roomy La Moda bag with me, so that I had plenty of space for my camera and all my potential thrift finds. Finally I went for my Dresslink sunglasses, and piled on a tonne of jewellery, both thrifted and high street. My jewellery collection video went live on Sunday, and features all the pieces here, so click here, to see and/or hear more about them.
I hope you enjoyed that little look at my outfit, and the eternally beautiful Richmond! I’d highly recommend the main street after crossing the bridge (pictured) for thrifting, literally every other shop is a charity shop. On the main high street just out of the tube station there are also a few good ones, and a great frozen yogurt place called The Farmery. Just before the bridge if its a nice day I’d recommend Pitcher and Piano, which is the restaurant and bar pictured, we ate there overlooking the water and the prices are reasonable! That’s it for today’s post, stay tuned for my vintage clothing haul this Sunday and I’ll see you soon. Until next time…
