Even though I've reverted back to wearing all black again, this has to be one of my favourite outfits as of late, which I wore for a trip to Southbank with some of my family on Thursday. I picked up this lovely Joseph top from my favourite charity shop a couple of weeks ago for just fifty pence, I was a little unsure about it at first but I just adore the elegant shape and cut out details. Plus isn't the background for this outfit post beautiful? I've been wanting to take some shots here for a while, so thank-you to my mother for being a brilliant photographer as always, and for being so patient with me and the ridiculous amount of people who kept walking into shot! Even though some people take living in London for granted, I feel so very lucky to live here, it's a beautiful city.

Don't forget to take a peek at my Asos feature here (page 25), and enter my V&A giveaway! Love, Jazzabelle.

  8. you do so well in those charity shops don't you, it's just a bonus that you love the experience of it all too. i'm with you on that, beats the hustle and bustle of a busy city which feels quite impersonal at times

  9. I adore how the top and the skirt all flow together as if they belong. Looking classy, girl! And what a spectacular view.

  22. London is the prettiest city I've been to so far. I'd say it beats Paris! I was planning on coming back this summer, but we went to Barcelona instead :) Hopefully next year! ^^

    Enjoy the weekend!
