London Living

February 13, 2013



It’s hard to believe that I’ve been living in London for more than a month already, it’s begun to feel like home so quickly. Tourists have already been asking me for directions, which I muddle my way through the best I can. In all seriousness, I love pretending like I’m a Londoner. It felt far too big at first, especially in comparison to Amsterdam, but getting to know the smaller boroughs has made it accessible. I’m rather in love with both Camden and South Kensington. My friend and I stumbled across the cutest little cafe in Camden the other day, Yumchaa, and we’ve already decided that it’s going to be our study spot. The Camden market is loads of fun, as well. Despite the horrid weather lately, we spent hours wandering the market and getting free samples of mulled wine ;) If anyone has any other recommendations for fun things to check out in, I’d love to hear them!

This is my first time wearing actual pants in ages! I don’t know what London is doing to me! But seriously, I do think the London cool girl style is rubbing off on me, at least I hope it is. I’ve been rather obsessed with velvet lately, and especially with this turban that I made the other day. Tutorial coming soon!

    You really do look like a native Londoner in these photos – this is exactly the kind of look that comes to mind when I think of London streetstyle :) I love your velvet headband, it gives a great pop of colour and a quirky touch to this look.

    Oh wow, I’m really in love with this outfit ! I like so much your turban (I’m hurry to see the tutorial ;), and this totally black outfit suits you perfectly, that’s so chic !

    I know what you mean about London; I stayed only… one day, that’s nothing, but I fell in love with that city ! I’ve been in Camden, and I was so amazed. People are so nice, never someone helped me to hold my suitcase in the subway before, and I never saw so many stylish persons. I wish I could come back, London is such a dream.

  7. Love your style!!!
