Welcome to London Town

Style Story 24There is a lot to Love about London. It’s one of my favourite places to visit and we definitely made the most of our time in the city. We caught up with friends and family members, attended London Fashion Week, and ate and drank at so many delightful spots.Β Now that I’ve (finally!) recovered from jet lag, I’m excited to share stories and photos from our London Adventure.London View 1Style Story 27London NewStyle Story 20Style story 30On our first day in the city, we decided to go straight to Central London to see the sights. Big Ben, Westminster Abbey and Buckingham Palace; we saw all the touristy things. Granted, there is so much more to see and do than the typical tourist things, but this was a really fun way to kick off our Holiday.

London is a really big city, and locals will tell you to factor in an hour for transit for most destinations.Β These landmarks are all quite close together, so you can easily walk to all of them. The photo opportunities are endless, and if you go early enough, you can get some wonderful photos, without too many people in them.

I wanted a classic and practical look for the day, as I knew we would be walking a lot. I paired my favourite dark grey Mavi jeans, with a black blazer from Zara and a simple white tee. These Sam Edelman boots were super comfy, but I must admit, the thin soles were not cut out for walking on the pavements of Europe. The streets are often cobbled andΒ  not always level, which is really hard on your feet. An insole worked wonders to make these boots work for 20km days!

You might be wondering about the scaffolding around Big Ben – he’s receiving maintenance until 2021. Luckily for us, they have just started so it’s still relatively low. I’m still glad I read about this before arriving so I wasn’t too disappointed.Style story 28Style Story 25As I go through our images from this trip, I’m be reminded about how many wonderful moments we experienced. From London and Paris Fashion Week, to visiting beautiful Prague, to all the delicious croissants we ate in Paris; I learned so much from this trip, and can’t wait to share my tips to make your European adventure just as magical.

    I would love to go back to London. I went in high school with a group, but because of airplane issues, we were only there 1 day. Looks like a great trip!

    • Thank you so much Adi! I really appreciate the lovely compliments. Yes, that’s a beautiful gold statue of an Angel near Buckingham Palace.

  • Lovely photos, I am sure you had a lot of fun. I agree, if you want to take many pictures when you travel I guess you gotta be early or else a lot of people will take pictures with you. You look beautiful honey.

    Did you see the changing of the guard? I really loved that – I got the best view for the band walking down the street.
    Then I got told that I was too close by the police on bikes.
    Looks like the weather was the same for you as it was for me!
    What shows did you see?
