16 hours in London ...

The Outfit and contents of the bag:

New Look Floral Blouse, Black Leopard Cotton On Leggings, Black flats, Green beanie cap, what's in my purse: earphones, gum, wallet, passport, tube ticket

I bought the top in New Look, London, on the way to our first stop. I think London is a very artsy city, and what's more boho- chic than florals in such a free/expressive city ? It was not cold, but pleasantly windy and cool - 22 degrees, perfect for short sleeves and leggings. 

The Journey and paths

Colors, textures, walls, phone booths, buildings, cat, airport, liquor around town

Mid-day - We were walking around London and getting off at different tube stations just to take a look. Met a friendly cat, some sweaty runners, and some very artsy walls and bricks along the way. London has a very artsy feel to it, and the streets are simply elegant. Paved roads, cobblestones, metal arches, delicate carvings, you name it, you will see it. There are also some pretty flower petals on the floor, all dried up and blown around. It's like snow! 

The London Tube is also very interesting. You get on the underground, and you meet people from all over the world - literally. There was an amazingly cute Mexican baby with the loveliest deer eyes in his pram too. 

Harrods Department Store + Food 

chocolates, seafood, poultry, cookies, apples, teddy bears, egyptian staircases, bicycles covered with plaster, veggies and the most beautiful staircase/ wallpaper combo I've ever seen - all in London's famous Harrods ! 

Just before I went to the airport for the return journey, I went shopping in Harrods, a luxury shopping center located in the middle of London. It's really posh, and has entire floors dedicated to chocolate and sweets. They also have awesome teddy bears in the furniture level, and very nice Easter-themed treats. 

Didn't buy anything though, I can't afford the clothing just yet, and my sweet tooth is too uncontrollable for me to get a box of chocs!

  17. I couldn't agree more with you! It's quite easy to lose appreciation for an area that you've been living in for ages. Everything becomes the norm and it's not special anymore. That's certainly how I feel in Toronto haha London has always been on my list of places to go :) Hope I will be able to see the London fashion scene for myself soon :D
