Hi loves, I hope you had a wonderful weekend! I am so excited to be sharing some of my favorite London adventures with you guys! I found this coat in London at Primark (my new favorite store!). Unfortunately, Primark is not in the United States YET, but there is rumor that one is on its way. I think the reason that I love this coat so much is because it reminds me of my favorite TV series, Pretty Little Liars. I have been PLL obsessed since the series first aired in the summer of 2010. If you have not starting watching Pretty Little Liars on ABC family then you absolutely must do so this Tuesday at 7PM (when new episodes air), or at 9PM (when the new episode replays). Tuesday night is my “me” night. I try to get all responsibilities handled the day before or early in the day so that I can have a night on my couch with pizza, vino and the remote.
This specific day a few of my friends and I went to go see THE Abbey Road! We actually got completely lost getting there and missed our stop on The Tube and went completely out of the way, but it made the adventure that much more fun! Taking a picture on this road was 1000% harder than I expected, the road itself is actually super busy with cars, buses and bicycle riders.
While in London I found that the style is much different than in the United States. It was very easy to spot who was not from the city based on what they were wearing. I loved being in London and soaking in all aspects of the culture, especially the fashion! I tried to look as much like a “Londoner” as possible. It became very apparent to me that London is much more laid back in terms of style. There is a ton of neutral colors such as black, white and taupe floating around the streets of Covent Garden (my favorite shopping destination)! I also noticed a lot of red, navy and soft pinks. I saw almost no floral prints or crazy designs. Everything was much more basic than fashion in the United States, but I loved it! It was so much fun changing up my typical peppy style to something more simple. My favorite part about London style was the overdose of stripes and dots. I love basic stripes and who does not love bringing out their inner Kate Spade girl with polka dots?! Thinking about London is making me want to go back miserably bad! The place is truly incredible and I had a lovely time!
