London continued: days 2-3

IMG_8073First of all, apologies for the delay in posting, I have been plagued with a bad cold and the last couple of days have been hellish. Finally, today I have been feeling a little better so what better way to celebrate than to get back  into blogging. I promised you some more photos from our London holiday and here are days 2 and 3.

Day 2 was Friday the third of July, M and I went to Westminster, walked around for a bit (just long enough for me to get a few blisters) and then we took a boat ride to Hampton Court Palace. It was our engagement anniversary, exactly one year ago M had asked me to marry him in the Hampton Court Gardens (and if you’re curious, no, we still haven’t set a date yet. We obviously suck at wedding planning, but I quite like that actually. Neither one of us is in any hurry, so we’re just happy where we are right now.)

London holiday: Bohemia Lounge

IMG_8036The time has finally come to share my London holiday. We arrived on Thursday, took the train from the airport and then went to our hotel. We had dinner at an Italian restaurant and then we went to one of our favorite London hang-outs: the Bohemia Lounge bar. This place is bloody amazing with the best cocktails ever!

The last of June

melissa shoes, iron fist bag, topshop gingham skirt, red t-shirt, express jacketAnother belated pre-London-holiday outfit post and it was an outfit that I quite liked. M and I went to do a spot of shopping before our vacation and we also went out to lunch to a burger joint (I had a vegetarian cheese burger but to be honest, I prefer veggie burgers if there are vegetable instead of cheese replacing the meat). I wore one of my favorite Melissa flats and the monochrome look with a pop of color really works for me.

Boho-edged

IMG_7994Another belated pre-London vacation post, this time featuring a dress turned skirt DIY item. It was originally from Stradivarius, it is really old (bought like 7 years ago?) and since I turned it from a dress into a skirt shortly after purchasing it. I think I wore it as a dress only once as maxi dresses aren’t really my thing. While I like them on others, they very rarely feel like my style. (Currently in my dress collection I have two maxi dresses, both very old but I do occasionally wear them.) So I decided to turn it into a skirt and have worn it a few times, I prefer it like a skirt and am glad that I made the change (if I recall correctly, the dress was really hard to get into anyways).

IMG_7997I wore an old necklace, also from Stradivarius¬† if I’m not mistaking. This look felt both relaxed with a slight boho vibe but at the same time with a slight edginess to it. I think the maxi skirt with the see-through fabric just does that on it’s own, the exposed yet covered juxtaposition.

Files of New: London shopping

Sorry! So sorry! I am seriously behind on my blogging schedule but there has been so much to do! I was hoping to have all the photos from my recent London holiday but I haven’t got them all yet, and the ones I do have haven’t been organized yet. I am incredibly behind schedule, but going on vacation usually does that to me (which is one of the reasons I don’t really like going on holiday, but I’m weird.) I have a few posts planned out but they should be up and posted soon, the first one on Monday. In the mean time I thought I’d share what I bought in London:

doc martens tan tattoo short bootI’ll start with my favorite purchase: these Doc Martens tattoo print tan lace-up short boots. I had wanted to buy them when we were in Rome on our holiday but they only had them in a size UK7 and they were too big, so when we were in London I found them in a shop in a size UK6 and the fit was perfection. I have a pair of Doc Marten boots (high ones, with 21 holes, also in a size UK6) but oh boy, those are still not comfortable/worn in yet. These seem to be wearable from the get-go but that probably is due to the height or lack of (the place where the other boots are uncomfortable are where they bend on the ankle, but as these new ones don’t go that high, they are fine.)

Just a quick planner post


I’m back from London (we arrived last night, cuddled Bananas and then went out to dinner) and right now I’m relaxing at home (I took an additional day off from work) and this morning my new Erin Condren life planner arrived! I chose the watercolor palette cover and it’s the 18 month version. I also purchased two sets of the Erin Condren markers (we don’t have Sharpies here). I filled out the past week and what went on during our vacation.¬†

Blood Orange


Blood orange or red orange is a favorite of mine, both as in the juice and the color. This dress is more red than red orange but in this particular photo it’s close enough. I love this dress btw. (Oasis) The shoes are from Melissa and they are the studded Doris flats. Love them!

melissa doris spikedI’m still in London but heading home tomorrow, I can’t wait to hold Bunny Bananas (my sis has been traditionally staying at my place and taking care of my pet, bless her) so I’m excited about going home. Also today has been super annoying in London. The fucking tube strike is making everything much harder. Crowded buses and people everywhere, plus delays, so thank you tube drivers, you selfish bastards.
