Portobello Market on a Sunny Day

Last weekend we went to the Portobello Road Market and had an amazing day soaked in sunshine!

Managed to find cheap proscuitto there.
LOVE it, I’ve been having it nearly every day, along with my other obsession which is fresh, perfect-looking cherries from the fruits guy downstairs.

Cream chiffon top Primark
Pink full skirt Topshop
Shoes Zara
Gold bracelet vintage (from mom)

The skirt feels quite heavy but it’s extremely comfy
Except that it flies upwards a too easily with the wind!

Can’t believe this was from Primark! For ยฃ10!

HA ha ha

At Portobello Rd Market we saw..

A big blue house with lots of windows

Photobucket

A very flowery house

Photobucket

Expensive, colourful houses

Normal colourful houses

These remind me of the beach houses at Brighton Beach (Melbourne)
Which can be seen here

Lots of antique jewellery

Old records

Antique swords

And other old.. weird things

Also had the most delicious ice cream there
Sifted through lots of vintage coats before finding mine
Listened to some really good street performers

Heard great 50s music along the way – I am a big fan, I LOVE 30s, 40s, and 50s music, big band, swing etc
Spent the evening sprawled on the grass at a tiny park nearby
Took photos of my accessories!

The ring’s also from my mother
It’s one of my (many) favourites – most of them are from her

Jewelry that’s passed down is usually the best jewelry. The houses you passed are absolutely beautiful- I wouldn’t mind living in any one of them! I especially like the flowery one. ๐Ÿ˜€

Seeing your pictures at portobello market makes me miss London so much! Your outfit is also wonderful. I remember seeing those pastel colored houses and taking pictures of them too!

Great shots of the facades. And that shade of pink I’d great on you.

Not sure what to wear my floral jeans with yet – I have to be careful I don’t end up looking like I’m wearing a couch
