Here’s a few snaps from Pergola & Hill Garden! I love this area. If you read a lot of London blogs I’m sure you’ll have seen it before as every blogger in the North London area seems to use it for outfit snaps – I’ve run into other bloggers at least 3 times on my visits here…

These photos were taken a few weeks back on a very rare day off just before the “good” sunshine arrived. Hampstead Heath is a huge place and there are amazing little gardens and follies hidden all over the place if you know where to look – I visit regularly and am still exploring new areas. I’ve made a big effort this year to really use my free days to their full potential of exploring and being outdoors!

My wardrobe has always been predominantly secondhand and vintage but this year is the first I’ve made an effort to only buy vintage. I’m slowly getting rid of all my non-vintage items – I’ll blog about it soon but this is one of my most “contemporary” looking outfits considering everything apart from the shoes is 1970s or earlier…

    What for a beautiful place, Laila! I used to live in north London for a while and never went there – so stupid, I am feeling now! It is such a beautiful place this garden, no wonder bloggers want pictures there! It’s nice to know that you are wearing things from the 70s and earlier, my favorite eras, but keep some pieces that bring you happy memories, I think! I wish you a great weekend!

  2. Awwww that place is beautiful so are your photos! and it’s so empty!! (like no people)
    Do you have to pay to go in?

    Your look is adorable. I like vintage but not retro vintage.

      What do you mean by retro vintage? And nope, it’s completely free!

      • it is nice that is free I normally have to pay for pretty places.
        I mean like 70s 60s that kind of retro vintage (just because sometimes you find that clothes under vintage and retro) or maybe I’m wrong hahahaha

        Vintage for me is more from 1940s till victorian, edwardian era.

    I love your outfit here and these stunning photos! Your hair is looking pretty cute too, the bow is a nice touch with your retro outfit. I would love to hear more about your vintage wardrobe!

    Haha, I’m sure I’ve seen photos with some similar looking columns… I’m pretty sure James and I are going to Hampstead Heath next weekend so I’ll have to look out for building so I can join the blogger photo club 🙂 xx

  6. This post makes me want to wear ribbons in my hair. And I love that pinafore on you, particularly the way it gathers at the back – so cute! x
