What I Wore 16/8/12

Today I was filming/photoing behind the scenes on Company's November cover shoot! It was super fun and the cover star was sooo lovely - super hush hush so I can't spill for now! I also walked half an hour from the studio to Brick Lane to indulge hipsters take some street style snaps, so my creepers came in handy today when I wanted a break from heels but still wanted to look 'directional'! 

(Top & skirt - Primark, Jacket - Kate's Instagram sale! Creepers - c/o Sarenza)

I'm looking a bit weary in this photo as I had just got in! Need to start making time for tripod outfit pics in the morning but I barely have time to eat brekkie let alone pose for pics at the crack of dawn. I literally walked to the station with two slices of nutella on toast in my hand and had to get the guy to open the wheelchair gate for me because I didn't "have enough hands to put my ticket in the machine" what with my (by then half eaten) toast! Haha. The glam life of me, eh? 

My awesome jacket was purchased after I saw Kate was selling it on her Instagram! It reminds me of my H&M jegging biker, but have been looking for an actual denim one. So paying £13 for this was a bit of a dream! So chuffed with it. 

Off to wind down before a busy day of work and then heading to Bluewater tomorrow for my fun Forever21 project! I'll be selecting my favourite pieces and then they'll be shoppable on the Saturday when the store launches! As I said in my post yesterday, I'll be around until midday at least, so do come and say hi etc. I'm so excited!!

What's new with you?
