There’s just something about London that makes you never want to leave the city ever again. One month in and I have forgotten all about my pre-London life (Amsterdam, is it?). Before coming here I was afraid of that slim chance I wasn’t going to like living here. I imagined myself sitting by the window every night, all by my lonesome self, talking to a Wilson I had fashioned out of a piece of paper and markers, just in case I wouldn’t meet anybody here. But so far it has been a great first month. I’ve met so many inspiring people and my thirst to explore London grows by the day. I’m sure I’ll have a nervous breakdown at some point, where I’ll become homesick and cry out “Amsterdam, Amsterdam!” in my sleep.
I’m sure. Kind of.
This look is an ode to British fashion. I wanted to do a trench coat look but the weather was pretty nice this weekend so I decided to go with a dress. This gorgeous black dress with poofy skirt is by AV by Adriana Voloshchuk. I wanted to offset the chic and formal appeal of the dress against some chunky ankle boots. These are by Sorel, a Canadian brand. The boots may be high but they’re pretty comfortable to walk in (and I have small feet). They’re supposed to be waterproof as well – can’t wait to test that soon! And then there’s my trusty Leather Satchel pixie bag. I carry this pretty with me everywhere these days.
We have another week full of exciting posts for you guys. This week we’re doing another feature of Virgit from Preppyfashionist. This was actually the first look we shot and we had loads of fun shooting this! We’re doing another beauty post this week. This week we’re featuring some items that will be perfect transitioning into fall season. We’re also featuring a travel post from our US road trip back in June. This was by far the best resort I’ve ever had the pleasure of staying at and I can’t wait to share it with you guys! Last but not least, we’re featuring Ginjo bar for our food section this week!
One last thing: I have a favor to ask of you. The Zalando Blogger Awards 2015 are held again in November this year and I would love to be up for the People’s Choice Award. I started this blog because I wanted to bring readers great visuals and funny writing and I hope I’ve been doing that for you! I know it’ll be a hard competition and I am calling on you on this late hour (voting started months ago and closes in two weeks). But I figured to just go for it – it’s never too late, is it? What’s in it for you, you say? Well, probably not much (ha!). But I’m prepared to throw in a coffee date with yours truly. I can’t promise I won’t be all awkward though, but I’ll definitely try!
