I've been quite desperate to share my latest bargain with you all. A tan leather backpack has been something I've sought after for a good while and I've been tempted to buy ones off the internet for about £40. But it wasn't until last week when in London that I spotted this beauty in the Oxford Street Primark for only £9 that I knew I had a winner. The sizing and the style is so perfect and I can't wait to rock the backpack trend all summer long. I bought the kimono jacket in a TK Maxx sale last year for only £3, whatta bargain! The skirt is from a lovely online boutique called Batoko, check it out won't ya!
I'm back down in London next week as I'm going to watch the tennis at Wimbledon with my sister. Hopefully we'll get a glimpse of my main man, Roger Federer. I can't wait.
Hope you're all having a lovely week so far. I'm unfortunately working hard to save up for my holiday and for going to London!
Love Monica,xxxx
