Ahh London, how I love you. I love your culture and your vibrancy, I love your architecture and your hidden beauty, I love your people, I love how I can explore you every weekend and yet still not get my fill. London, you are the city of my dreams. And I now either sound criminally insane or like some sort of precocious wannabe poet. I can assure you, I am neither. I am just smitten with the place and the life I lead down there on the weekends and days I can snatch midweek from the monotony of the North.
This weekend I spent a heavenly few hours exploring Brick Lane again and all it had to offer. After dreaming of their falafel and halloumi wraps from my favourite street vendor since I last had them in October, it was a very happy Lj who ate her body weight in street food and meandered down the vibrant streets on Saturday in search of a replacement French Bulldog ring for the one I lost (Albert 2.0) and the perfect graffiti to shoot in front of.
Not only was I successful in my quest for the ring (alright Frodo) but I also picked up the cutest septum ring too which made me come over all Disney princess. It took us a while to find the right graffiti but when we happened upon this amazing black and white mural it was like all my dreams had come true and well, the results are here for you to witness. Ever so slightly jealous that Michael has been able to experiment with my new lens before I have but that’s life – can’t wait to whip this bad boy out at LFW in a few weeks though for ALL of the street style shots. And I promise I’ll actually remember to upload them to the blog this time…
I’ve just realised I’ve not actually mentioned anything that I’m wearing so far in this post, but essentially I’ve rehashed a good old favourite in the form of this slouch fit acid wash denim jacket over an all black combination – the blue of the denim helps break up the block of black, and the relaxed fit compliments the oversized sweater and casual skirt. Plus a beanie because, well, do I even need to explain the beanie anymore?!
Will you be at LFW? Make sure you hit me up on Twitter if you are @lucy_jlove – I wanna meet some more of you absolute babes.
