PLAYING THE TOURIST


Top - Joa Closet, Kimono - Billabong, Jeans - Urban Outfitters, Boots - Belle by Sigerson Morrison, Beanie - H&M, Bag - Rebecca Minkoff 

Day 4 of London for me was all about being the ultimate tourist. Yeah, everyone does Piccadilly Circus and Oxford Street, so why the hell not??? Carnaby Street was also quite lovely with little hole in the wall shops that must not be missed. I love being surrounded by a big city vibe, and these areas of Central London gives off just that. Wonderful for people watching. The sidewalks have massive amounts of heads going in every sort of direction. There is always a sense of urgency, but never a feeling of stress that can easily come about in NYC. I like the balance I feel and see in London. And it's a lot of fun dodging people on bikes and those big old double-decker buses. Excitement in the air. Every big city has a Chinatown, and London's few blocks of Chinese restaurants is adorable and has delicious dim sum offerings if you are in the mood. Central London is street after street of epic buildings that are oh so European. I always walk slower in the city so I can take it all in with my eyes. At night, we met up with our friend Gabi who has grown up in London to hit up some fashion parties and a late night Vietnamese chow fest. This girl is the funniest and I love her British accent. Makes everything sound so much better! Oh yeah . . . and today is my BIRTHDAY! I am 25!!! I almost forgot about my birthday because of all of the European travel madness! Going out to celebrate tonight with friends :)

It's so easy to become complacent about the city you live in but you and your sisters travels have reminded me what I love about living in London. Yesterday I went for a walk in Hyde Park and enjoyed the autumn colours and the friendly squirrels. I'm glad you girls love the city as much as I do!
