EAST LONDONER


Dress and Slip - Free People, Jacket - French Connection, Hat - Urban Outfitters, Boots - Belle by Sigerson Morrison

Everyone has been telling me that East London is THE place to be on a Sunday because of the vintage markets, food, and people-watching, so of course Natalie and I saved our Sunday for Shoreditch. We started off at Brick Lane where a music festival was happening, so the crowds were even more massive than expected. I have never seen more vintage and cool kids all in one place together in my life (funny, since I live in hipster-ridden Philly and am a Williamsburg chiller). It really was a wild site for the eyes. The food selection at the market was amazing. We were starving from all the shopping and walking, and consumed a plate full of savory Indian and Turkish delights in what felt like nearly one big gulp. All while sitting on the sidewalks along with everyone else. In Shoreditch, people really don't give a damn, and I love it. If you ever get the chance to visit London, make sure to save a Sunday for Brick Lane and Shoreditch High Street for fab shopping, loud and good music, and cute boy scoping! And you can drink a beer on the street whenever you like. It's awesome. From Liverpool Street to Brick Lane to the heart of Shoreditch to Dalston, East London is where it's at for all that is cool and hip (and downright gritty) in London. Oh, and curry houses for miles. Totally my jam. There is just so much life and youth in the air here. I still can't stop thinking about it.

Going to go find a place to a get a full English breakfast right now. Not skimping on anything!

OH London looks absolutely amazing!
Shoreditch sounds like it is too cool for school!!
Someday, when I finally make it to England, I'll definitely have to try to make it there :)

These photos are just too awesome. Thanks so much for sharing little bits of your trip with us Dylana!
The clothes, the people, the food. All of it is just making me want to go to England more than you can imagine!

As for your outfit, ooooh I love the mix of elements!
That lace dress is too sweet and I love that you paired it with that masculine cargo jacket on top. The hat on your head completes the look and your tights and boots just make you look so ready for colder weather!

I love love LOVE these photos girl!
Have an awesome rest of the week <3

Oh I so want to go to London sometime in my life...it is near the top of my bucket list, that's for sure! I will have to save this post for future reference. Of course by the time I finally get to go, I won't fit in with the cool kids anymore, because I'll probably be 80! I'll just take my grand kids and be a hip granny!

Looks like fun!

I lived in East London last year, and while I prefer my new home for this year, Los Angeles you've done so well to capture it in photos - you've made it look much nicer than I think it really is!

You know what great ? Reading and seeing the way you and natalie perceived London when you were here... The thing is as u probablyvalready know with your own city back home, when you live somewhere you take things for granted and go me Camden, brick lane, London's great street style and it's authentic foods ... It's such a given... But after reading your posts it just made me realize how lucky I am to live in this city ! I'm so glad you guys had such a fantastic trip! Hopefully sooner than later i can come explore your end of the world !!!x

You look so gorgeous in that dress!
