Ridin’ The Tube

I LOVE LONDON!

Every time I visit I learn something new. Yesterday was my birthday and to celebrate my other half took me into Town for shopping, dinner and theatre.

London folk have there own way of doing things, just like all the other cities in the world. But London Folk do their thing in style.

Every individual in London has a style niche. My particular fave was the preppy summer-girl look with long tousled ‘bed hair’, minimal make-up, bronzed skin and dressed in a cute dress or dungarees and pastel pumps. I’ve put together some examples of the outfits I saw and just L.O.V.E.D:

1) Dungarees have made quite a comeback it seems! So many girls in them yesterday, styled with flatforms and a hat that screams ‘I’m Cooler Than YOU Coz I Am In This HAT!”

The dungarees above are from American Apparel and are £76 [ See http://store.americanapparel.co.uk/rsadm310.html?cid=1957-1959 ]

The crop top above is Exclusive to ASOS at the moment at is £25 [ See http://www.asos.com/ASOS-Petite/ASOS-PETITE-Exclusive-Gingham-Crop-Top/Prod/pgeproduct.aspx?iid=2174812&SearchQuery=gingham&Rf-700=1000&sh=0&pge=0&pgesize=20&sort=-1&clr=Whitelilac ]

The flatforms can be found on ASOS too and are River Island. They are £55. [ See http://www.asos.com/River-Island/River-Island-Strapped-Flatform-Sandals/Prod/pgeproduct.aspx?iid=2156427&cid=6992&sh=0&pge=0&pgesize=200&sort=-1&clr=Brown ]

The hat is yet again ASOS and £10 [ See http://www.asos.com/ASOS/ASOS-Loop-Yarn-Boyfriend-Beanie/Prod/pgeproduct.aspx?iid=2159665&cid=4174&Rf900=1491&sh=0&pge=0&pgesize=-1&sort=-1&clr=Grey ]

2)  I saw so many cute girly dresses yesterday is prompted me to invest in some myself! My fave outfit in London looked very similar to this one:

I am The Trilby’s biggest fan. It makes the world’s cutest dress and shoe combo uber-cool… Long-live the trilby!

This black one is from ASOS and is £20 [ See http://www.asos.com/Seeberger/Seeberger-Straw-Trilby-Hat/Prod/pgeproduct.aspx?iid=2033072&cid=4174&Rf900=1491&sh=0&pge=0&pgesize=-1&sort=-1&clr=Black ]

The super-cute summer dress is from Urban Outfitters and is £68 [ See http://www.urbanoutfitters.co.uk/thistlepearl-eyelet-dress/invt/5130466605000/&bklist= ]

Summery and chirpy the shoes compliment the dress nicely. They are a MASSIVE BARGAIN as well at only £9.99 from H&M [ See http://www.hm.com/gb/product/97836?article=97836-A#article=97836-C ]

3)  CRAZY PLATFORM SHOE BOOTS were everywhere! Obviously not a first choice for traipsing around the Underground in but still worth the effort! By far my favourites are:

         OR  

 Neon was another big trend yesterday with statement accesories spotted all over the place.These flourescent pink shoes (above left) are from Prodigy Red and also come in lime green or black. They are £31.99 [ See  http://www.prodigyred.com/Footwear/c42/p3088/Kendra-Suedette-Block-Heel-Lace-Shoes/product_info.html?attr_id=56 ].

Above left are just beyond beautiful. Cheap as chips; they are £33 from Chockers. [ See http://www.chockersshoes.co.uk/search/LUCIA3/product/americano/ ]

Well that’s my London fashion update for you. Tomorrow I’m going to write a review of the Lion King. Hope you L.O.V.E xx
