Leeds is not only my home city, it's a thriving one. Full of new and old things to do, It's the city that people have been coming to visit more and more frequently over the past few years. Most students seem to be flocking here come September, new business ventures are opening up and more culture is being brought into its busy streets. I thought I would take you on a day out with me in Leeds, wondering around, eating lots of good food and drinking wine. What could be better?......

My chunky statement necklace is from Happiness Boutique. Intertwined with chain and diamante, it doesn't look too overpowering or tacky, which really pleasantly surprised me. I styled it with a plain white v-neck t shirt from Zara, turning an everyday day-time look, into a much more chic and stylish one.They also offer free shipping which is a really good perk if you're a bargain hunter like me! You can see this beautiful necklace here. 

My ripped grey jeans are from River Island....

My small light-brown (simple, yet minimalist) bag is from none other than high-street retailer Dorothy Perkins. I know what you're thinking. Dorothy Perkins? Really? Yes, really. I believe that the brand have really started to up their game in the accessories department, and my wishlist is beginning to grow fast! This bag fits all my necessities into it, and it's one of those bags that you can just use with any outfit - and at just £22, (see here) it's hardly breaking the bank. 

My leather jacket is old-season from Zara...

Then we took a stroll along the canal bank, just to have a little wonder around away from the main city centre area....

After stopping for a few pictures...

We noticed the cute little locks of love attached to the small bridge....

Who said northerners didn't do romance like the Parisians?

Then we headed to one of my favourite bars on Boar Lane, 1871. Although it's actually connected to the Marriott hotel, it doesn't have that "guest-only" vibe at all. People flock in here after work or on weekends, the atmosphere is always so lively and the interior decor is right up my street.

Sipping on some Sauvignon Blanc of course!

After a few drinks we made our way to Leeds hottest place of the moment, The Belgrave Music Hall & Canteen. When the students are here during term-time it's completely packed out, but over the Summer it consists of locals and the passerby's.

I can't quite believe I haven't been here before, it has that off-duty kind of feel to the place, with bare walls and benches, with beers in plastic cups and loud music - it's simple, but it works.

Oh, and did I mention the food? These chips are possibly the best chips I have ever had. But probably also the greasiest....

But no-where near as greasy as this bad boy, nicknamed the Dirty Burger. I can certainly see why. It tasted absolutely amazing though!

Then we went to settle our bellies and take in the view at the cute rooftop terrace! Definitely my kind of place....

Have you ever been to the Belgrave Music Hall & Canteen?
Or have you been to Leeds?
As always, let me know!
Lots of love,
Hannah xoxo
