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!
