✽ Bell Bottoms and slowly trying to be Vegan ✽

Bell bottoms: American Gold by Spanish Moss (on sale)
Paisley Top: Vintage
Jacket: Vintage
Necklaces: Waiste Vintage
Boots: Missguided (old)

I finally got my hands on some American Gold bell bottoms, I've been wanting these for ages, but they're from America so I've always been a little hesitant as full price they were quite pricey, and I had to be absolutely sure I was getting the right size. But they fit like a dream and they're so comfy I'm so happy with them. They were on sale, it was really fast delivery, no custom charges and I got an extra 30% off with a discount code the other week too, definitely one of my favourite recent purchases and I'm trying really hard not to live in them but they do go with everything. I'm now on the hunt for the prefect pair of flared jeans. I rediscovered my favourite vintage paisley top under my bed as I was sorting through my Autumn clothes and I've actually lived in it ever since.

I wore this to grab some vegan sushi my favourite sushi restaurant Brilliant Corners last Friday, it's on Kingsland road in East London and it's incredible, I cannot recommend it enough. If you go, make sure you try the vegan tempura, tofu soup and the veggie tamaki sushi. I would seriously eat there every day if I could.

It's strange, I've actually been eating more and more vegan recently without even realising, which I admit I've found really easy food-wise as I live in London. I am vegetarian for ethical reasons and in recent times I've been researching and educating myself on animal welfare and treatment in other ways, not just the food industry and it's much MUCH worse than you do realise, and I know there is much more for me to learn, but I know know I would love to eventually go vegan. This of course is more of a lifestyle choice rather than a food choice, but by trying new recipes or starting to try and eat vegan it's a great way to start.

 So I've been trying some great recipes from Deliciously Ella (she's my favourite food blog by the way). First I made the cinnamon pecan granola which I've already made before so I knew it would be delicious, the recipe makes loads and lasts for a couple of weeks. Then I made the banana, cinnamon and almond crumble which also tasted amazing and lasted the whole week, and I even found alpro custard in Tesco which I never knew existed, and I'll go as far to say it actually tastes better than regular custard. Eventually when I have more time I'll do a few vegan/veggie recipe posts with some decent pictures, promise.

  2. Love this outfit! I was inspired to go vegan by DeliciouslyElla too, I try to eat mostly vegan everyday and I lost so much weight from it and felt so much healthier. It's such an inspiring lifestyle and it's so amazing how many healthier options are out there when you go vegan. Vegan food in London is just the best isn't it, if you haven't been to Vantra Vitao yet definitely go, had the most amazing chocolate shortcake there and it was the most delicious thing EVER, better than any chocolatey dessert I've had in my life haha!

  8. Love this post Sara, you look great as usual! I've recently decided to try and go vegetarian after looking into all the animal welfare issues myself, going vegan would be great challenge to try and become eventually!

  9. I went vegan for a while but reverted back to veggie when I went home for summer after uni. But I have to say I will still lean towards soya milk and yogurt just cos it tastes soooo damn good! Being vegan or veggie really isn't that hard and it makes such an impact on the environment and animal welfare. I don't want to be a part of an industry that exploits anything!
