The last stop on our trip: five nights in London! Ahhh. It was quite the relief to arrive in a much cooler temperature, where I could wear all the jackets I never get a chance to wear in Florida, and this city was very clean and easy to get around. We did some sightseeing the first day, but I also did a little shopping! (more on that later) As for the fashion in London, I think this city takes the cake. Here's why:
- Everyone is super stylish here! You can think of it as a trendier New York City. Girls were not at all scared to experiment with fashion, makeup and hair. I saw a girl on the subway at the end of our trip with lavender hair that actually looked quite normal. I don't know if it was the city that had rubbed off on me at the point, but she looked great.
- It was chilly, but everyone, and I mean everyone, was in tights and shorts (usually denim cut-offs with black tights).
- Skull scarves were big here (I also saw them in Paris), and in the stores they sell tons and tons of pleated pants with tapered bottoms, over-sized bow blouses and colorful skinny denim.
About my outfit: this is not my favorite outfit of the trip (the one two days from now is!) but it was perfect for the weather and really comfy (these boots rock). It was chilly in London, but even more so at night. I added my zebra scarf when the sun went down, buttoned my jacket, and moved my belt up around the waist of my blazer (made the switch in the middle of the street, in case you were wondering). You can see my daytime look below, before I made the changes! I'm a big fan of transitional outfits on the go. :-)
