Like most of us I am a creature of habit, even though I live in an amazing city like London I still do the same things every weekend. So knowing that we are heading back up t'north next year, me and my boyfriend decided to make a list of places we still need to eat at and areas we need to visit.
Last Sunday me and Joe spent the day wandering around Soho (an area I first worked in when I came to London) and Carnaby Street finding somewhere new to eat and go shopping. I thought I'd share with you guys our little trip out and places I would recommend visiting if you ever find yourself with a free afternoon in London.
Our first stop was to the Detox Kitchen along Kingly Street that runs parallel to Carnaby Street. This is a great place to eat, if like us, you are being good with your diet and eating healthy on the lead up to festivals or holidays. Taking the food we ordered we walked a few streets on to sit in the park Golden Square. One of my favourite things about London is even though we are in the middle of the capital, you can still find a small green space to relax and eat your food. We then carried on wandering through the streets of Soho checking out the independent clothing stores, places like Patta, Paul Smith, Axel Arigato and ended up at Wardour news. Now I know this isn't a clothing store but what this shop does have is a huge selection of magazines and is well worth a visit, if you ever want an independent magazine from anywhere around the world. For me, it was a perfect chilled Sunday afternoon in the sunshine and of course not forgetting my outfit..
This look is super relaxed with little to no effort required. I have my favourite raw edge jeans on from Topshop and teamed with this baby blue shirt by & Other Stories, which has a drawcord pull detail at the back. When pulled in it makes the shirt at the top fitted and gives a billowing effect towards the hem. It's a simple shirt but made in a soft none crease fabric, which makes it the perfect piece for chilling out in. To finish this weekend look off I have my mustard suede mules on for comfort and styling out the sunshine is these retro shades from H&M, making me feel like an extra out of Narcos! Let me know if you liked this look? and if you have any recommendations from London town before I leave the big smoke next year!
