As I said in my first travel post this week, I so badly wanted to take photos of the amazing street style I saw, but 1. sometimes these jaw-dropping looks were already past me before I could even think to grab my camera and 2. How big of an American creep would have I been? Some may have found it flattering, but I was worried most would find me strange. Thus, I relied on my visual memory to write down the looks in my journal later and re-create them on Polyvore. Of course, this doesn’t do these fabulous women justice because their hair, make-up and vibe cannot be displayed through these looks. But here are a few and I will be sharing more with you soon!
Hello blogger friends and readers, I have missed you dearly! Coming home was bittersweet like most things in life, I was sad to be leaving Europe and the fun I was having with my sisters and mother, but at the same time I missed my boyfriend, friends and home! Anyway, this week I will be sharing lots of photos from my trip and today we start off with London! We were in London for three full days and one half day before taking the high speed train to Paris. Also, I so badly wanted to take photos of the AMAZING street style I saw, but refrained because I felt so creepy doing it (especially on the Tube and the Metro! haha). Anyway, I wrote down some of the best outfits I saw and will be recreating them through Polyvore to share with you! Honestly, I loved the street style most in London. I thought I would see the most in Paris, and maybe its just that I was in too many of the touristy areas, but I was feeling the looks I saw in London more. Everyone was dressed so chic… with perfectly fitted trench coats, scarves, colored skinnies, etc. The weather was rainy and pretty chilly for June, so my outfits were mostly skinnies, tees, my leather jacket and snakeskin moccassins!

Today my two sisters, mother and I leave for our Europe trip! If you couldn’t tell, I am a little bit excited about it. Traveling is a true passion of mine and I am excited to take in the sights, culture and fun experiences with my family. I have prepared some posts for the next two weeks while I’m gone, and I hope you enjoy them! I will be back and ready to share my trip after June 21st. For updates on our trip and I’m sure I will be Instagram-ing a lot while I’m there, so be sure to follow!
There has been a lot going on these past couple weeks, but nothing is on my mind more than packing and getting more and more excited for my trip to Europe! Here are just some pictures for an update on life lately, if you don’t follow me yet, be sure to follow me on Instagram, this is most likely how I’ll be documenting my travels!
It has been way too long since I’ve done a travel post, considering traveling is a passion of mine! With my upcoming trip to Europe, London being stop number one, and the upcoming Olympic Games, I thought it would be the perfect time to do a post on London. Out of all the places I’ve been thus far, London is my favorite and has completely stolen my heart! I took a course in London for three weeks when I studied abroad and went back several weekends after I settled down in Wales.
Clothing is often like photographs… they bring back memories and take you back to a place and time that maybe you have not thought about in awhile. This outfit is what I wore five years ago on the trip home from my five month study abroad experience in England and Wales.
