London town

Lifestyle

Hey guys!

So I have been out of the blogging game for a bit due to exams and being super busy but I’m back and cannot wait to share lots of exciting adventures I have going on this summer.

As you may have seen on my Instagram I was just in London for a long weekend. My boyfriend is a cyclist so we headed down for a race of his and spent some time sightseeing and shopping.

We were staying right in the centre of London in the most amazing location with Big Ben and the London Eye just a stones throw away- it was gorgeous!

On Saturday we spent the morning and a bit of the afternoon exploring and touristing in Covent Gardens. I couldn’t wait to bring out a bit of an edgier side of my wardrobe when coming to London as with it being such a fashionable capital, I felt I could switch it up a little.

Here I am wearing a New Look skirt, Zara tee (similar here),a Topshop biker jacket, New Look slipper shoes (similar here) and my Moschino bag. I accessorised with a New Look choker (similar here). I love graphic tees and chokers together. I think they add an edge to an outfit and work so well!

That evening we went to the Lee Valley Velodrome and I had a fun few hours enjoying the racing.

On Sunday it was shopping day and I could not have been more excited! We made our way to Oxford Street where I was overwhelmed by the massive Topshop store and all the amazing high street stores like H and M. We then walked down to Bond Street, where there were shops like Louis Vuitton, Prada, Chanel, D&G and lots more amazing designer shops. Louis Vuitton was so gorgeous with the most amazing leather dresses and shoes that I wish I was able to afford! Most importantly we stopped off at Victoria’s Secret. I am a self confessed VS addict- I just can’t get enough of it, so I was like an over excited child when I got to the store! I will share on my Instagram the amazing bright and summery underwear I got soon!

On Sunday I embraced the off the shoulder trend in this New Look top and Topshop ripped jeans. If you are looking for a new top this summer- definitely invest in a top like this! They are so summery and really in style right now so are in every high street shop.

If you are heading to London I would definitely recommend Bond Street and Oxford street for some shopping- you won’t be disappointed!

Lots of love
