I’ve just come back from a lovely weekend of seeing my gal pals in the big smoke (London).
But Friday presented me with many fashion dramas, but did I just put style pressure on myself because I knew I was taking a trip to the capital city of England, that is renowned for it’s infamous London fashion week and general edgy dressers? Unfortunately, I was too busy to search for a new outfit that gave me that ‘London look’, but now I’m sat here questioning why I thought I needed a new outfit in the first place?
After debating about what the weather would be like in London, I decided to wear my crochet trimmed poet blouse tucked into my ripped denim jeans, both from TopShop. I love that this blouse draws on a romanticism inspired style but it’s something that could easily be Coachella inspired, don’t you think? I decided to wear my cream ASOS sling back shoes because it’s Spring!
I have to admit I was eager to wear an outfit that allowed me to wear my new circle trim tote bag from TopShop. There’s just something so classy about the bag and I love how chic it makes me feel, especially because I see it as my ‘weekend’ bag.
This is a timeless look that is perfect for a day gallivanting around London, it’s a fresh look for taking on Spring but the billowing sleeves with the tie up section at the front makes it perfect for a day to night look. I wore silver hoop earrings too, just to add a bit of character to a classic look and I decided to wear my favourite nude lip colour to make myself look youthful.
The truth is, I realised everyone in London just dresses how they want to, whilst walking around places like Covent Garden and Barnes. Not everyone appears to be an advert for London fashion week. There’s no need to add pressure to our lives to ‘dress better’ than usual, I just wore a outfit that I would normally wear and it’s important to be comfortable in it, because you don’t want to be hot and uncomfortable on the District Line.
