Hey, girl heeeeyy...
   I love this look, it's very casual and cute. I won't like I chucked these on because it was the comfiest option to run errands in, but it turned out to be a lovely outfit.
It was hummus day when I took these photos, and obviously, I marked this very important occasion by going into Zapato Lounge in Northampton town centre for some tapas with ciabatta, hummus, falafel and patatas bravas, with a Long Island Iced Tea. Perfect little lunch date with my partner, I'd definitely recommend the Lounge chain, they do awesome food and cocktails. They have their own vegan menu too which makes my life a hell of a lot easier. 

I was looking for a black background in the town centre for ages, then I realised there wasn't a great one for backdrops for outfit of the days so I was a bit bummed, (the last few have been in Leicester, in the restaurant square) but then the town's gay night club painted their building black. I'm gonna put that down to fate, I am... Cheers, Boston. 

The Dr Martens I'm wearing aren't actually vegan, they're a pair that I brought before the transition to a vegan lifestyle, but I always feel weird wearing them. I'll list them on my Depop account soon and buy some vegan ones. They have some awesome black vegan leather sandals at the moment, I might have to grab them. Not because I want to or anything, I just need to show demand, you know? (joke I need those in my life they are so beautiful eeeek) 

I don't do OOTD posts as often as I'd like, I enjoy shooting and writing random things about the day or updates on my life. and love seeing what other people wear and how they style things... I'm going to start doing a lot more.

Have a fabulous week guys,

How cute and simple is this outfit? I love it. I feel like the long mandala kimono makes the whole get up though, for sure. Kimonos are my favourite things lately, I want them all. I saw a dusky orange silk/velvet kimono the other day and I almost bought it, but let's be honest I'd never wear it. When do I ever wear colour?! haha... Except for my hair y'know? It's all black and white. 

I've got two pieces from the online shop Romwe on here, and I've made another order since so I'm going to do a haul and review video on YouTube so watch out for that! Got a list of pros and cons to tell ya'll about, and show off the clothes, obviously.

So you can probably tell from the background that I was in Leicester again (like it's a black marble wall, are you even a blogger if you don't take pictures in front of it? lmao) there was actually a vegan festival there so I went to that, and was in food Heaven with a cherry Bakewell tart. I haven't had one since becoming a vegan, and I missed them SO much. It's a good job I only bought one otherwise I would have been stuffing them in my belly ad piling on the pounds haha, they were so bloody nice.
