London Outfit: Day One

coat, plaid shirt: Think Twice vintage - jeggings: Pimkie - beret: old - backpack: River Island - boots: ASOS - ring: Alex Monroe


So, for my London adventure I wanted to be COMFORTABLE first, stylish second. I went for a slightly androgynous sixties Britrock sorta look, a bit like something the Beatles would have worn. I love how chelsea boots and skinnies emphasize my lankiness, strangely enough :-D I would totally recommend wearing something similar for traveling, but bare in mind that the tubes are VERY hot and sweaty. My plaid shirt went straight into the washing machine when I got home, so gross. AH THE GLAMOUR OF FASHION BLAWGZ

Major thanks to Sabina and Paulien for taking my pictures! I adore Paulien's lens SO much. How do you like these pictures compared to my usual shots? Does the quality merit me buying her lens or should I just stick with my guns?

  2. Heeft Paulien een 50mm 1.8 lensje? Want zo een zou ik ook nog wel willen. Een heleboel bloggers gebruiken zoiets vanwege de scherptediepte die het super goed doet bij portretten (is eigenlijk een portret lens) en die zou ik uiteindelijk ook wel kopen als ik jou was. Ik ga het iig wel doen!

  9. You look like you must have fit right in with the hip London crowd. I do love the way the photos came out but I know how expensive lenses can be. If you can swing it then go for it but I think your everyday photos are always pretty.

  12. I actually didn't notice the diff from the lens, but then again I'm clueless when it comes to this stuff. Regardless the pictures & you look great! Def comfort before fashion when travelling, but you got the comfy casual look down pat. What are the tubes though? the Subway?

  16. This post makes me miss London... and I never miss London. But it's looking pretty swell here! I don't know what lens she has or what lens you have, BUT I have two... the kit lens and a 50mm one and I love the photos with my 50mm and get irritated with my kit lens for making my photos look like they were taken with a point and shoot. I would shop around maybe?
