TGIF, am I right?
It’s been a heck of a week. Extended vacations are always a beautiful break from reality, but they also mean mountains of work to plow through upon your return, and that’s exactly the situation I found myself in this week. Lots to catch up on at work, lots to take care of at home.
To take a pause from the crazy that is my life right now, here are some images we shot on our last full day in London. It was alternating between drizzle and foggy mist, but we still braved the cold to check out Harrod’s. I don’t know how many of you know this, but stockings are a big thing in Europe! Regardless of age and size, European girls love wearing their stockings with everything, from flats to booties to OTK boots, and with shorts (I even saw a couple peek out from under trousers), skirts, and dresses. I finally found my people. For some reason, I’ve noticed that stockings aren’t exactly huge with girls my age in California – the dress code here is more like shorts and jeans and bare legs in general.
To stay toasty on this cold, cold day, I bundled up with “blackout” opaque stockings – they’re not just your everyday opaque stockings; they’re a little thicker and, consequently, opaque to the fullest extent, even when you stretch the nylon. They did their job keeping my legs warm, so I could switch up my footwear and prance around in ankle booties instead. I also swapped my wool coat out for this Zara cotton trench (it comes with a detachable hood!), and squeezed not one but two sweaters under it. Even though one of said sweaters was actually a sweater-vest, I still felt a little puffy with my layers, especially since being a Southern California native means being a stranger to anything lower than 60degree weather, but at least I was warm and surrounded by my fellow stockings girls in beautiful London.
I’m currently working on a couple of things for Jayeeaych (including the last bits from my European tour), so be on the lookout next week for some goodies! Thanks for reading, and have a fantastic weekend!
