LCinLONDON Part 2- A year later…

April 2014


I lived out all my Spice World dreams in London with Claire.

Highlights: tea, VA museum, the tube, tesco, evan song, shoreditch, wandering, street art, english breakfast, jaffa cakes, top shop, brick lane coffee, bleach london, wah nails, royalty, kate middleton in general, and most of all…quality time at the flat with Claire.

My 24th Birthday was amazing! Thank you to everyone who came over to celebrate. A special thanks to Conor who made the weekend so fantastic. I hope you enjoy these pictures of some very dear friends of mine. I’ll be back with a fashion post at the end of the week. 
Cheers!

¬†Here is Claire’s take on the dress-layering that has been featured on the site¬†pretty¬†often. It’s amazing what you can do with a LBD. Claire proves that if it’s short enough (which, let’s be real, all of her dresses are), you can throw a skirt¬†over¬†it to give it a much different look. This purple skirt is also a wardrobe staple as it can be worn as the pop of color for an outfit – or as a neutral. Purple is a hot trend for this fall/winter so if you’ve been on the fence about the plum hue in the past – say¬†fuck it¬†and give it a shot.¬†
She’s also modeled the look with both sneakers and wedges – showing both a casual and more night/going out look.¬†
The sneakers were black & white when Claire bought them from H&M and then she took a highlighter to them like crazy only Claire can. And there is the beauty in disco high-tops. 
This is definitely an outfit that, come the cooler months ahead Рcan be paired with black opaque tights and boots.

Will you be trying out purple or layers this fall?

On a much brighter and lighter note Рit was date-night with Claire, which inadvertently turned into an early bird special, with buffet-style ordering of appetizers, and the best key lime pie I have ever eaten. 
I wish I could gush more about this pie and show you pictures of how good it looked but no sooner was it placed in front of us Рit was gone. All of the food was sooo delish that there are no pictures of them at all. I guess I will have to show some self control next time. 
And then there was this fantastic blue truck, and the¬†miracle¬†that Claire wasn’t wearing that color; since she seemed to be wearing almost every other color – like a boss. She almost makes a rainbow when she stands next to it. She seamlessly combines trends like neon and¬†color-blocking¬†– not to mention, her signature tinted tips.
