When the sun shines in London, the place comes alive. And here’s a little tip for anyone who’s planning on visiting London at some point – the city is much more walkable than you might imagine, and it is definitely the best way to see everything! With the sun beating down – and my incredibly comfortable Zara slip-ons ready to go – we decided to go out for the day and walked everywhere. From Shoreditch through The City to St Paul’s, across the Millenium Bridge to the Tate Modern to check out the incredible Lichtenstein retrospective exhibition, along the river front to Borough Market to grab some Monmouth coffee & food, continuing through to the Tower of London, then back across the river and up to east London again. It was lovely to be outside in the fresh air & sunshine again – I am so ready for it to be summer!
Hope you all had a lovely weekend too
Out and about: Columbia Road
Columbia Road is one of my favourite spots in East London. The best time to go is on a Sunday, when the flower market has the place buzzing – with crowds of locals jostling to select their bunch of fresh flowers for home, perusing the lovely boutiques, or enjoying coffee & cake in the packed nearby cafes.
You might not be surprised by the outfit of the day here – my fav easy-to-wear combo of jeans / sweater / beanie does the trick yet again! The value of a waterproof, hooded jacket is not to be underestimated in London’s unpredictable climate – as proven last Sunday – and I’m a believer that a cute beanie can make all the difference to an outfit! At least that is certainly the case for this cute Neff hat that I completely love. It makes me think of cupcakes, which always puts me in a good mood hehe
Good night everyone, and hope you enjoy your Friday!
These heels just might be the best pumps I’ve ever bought. The silhouette, the stripes, the height, both office and party appropriate – exactly what I like in a good pair of heels! I know you’ve seen them before, but I can’t help it.. they deserve another showcase
Am posting this from Essex where I’m enjoying a weekend away from the city, and spending time in the countryside – bliss!
Hope you’re having a great weekend
