London Style Diary

Someone once told me they liked my “style” and that went straight to my head. So now that I know I have great style (jk I just wear a lot of black), I’ve decided to incorporate a style aspect to my blog.

I didn’t really think much into what I wore until I moved to New York. I was an athlete my whole life so I lived in whatever sweatpants the team gave us. Now that I live in a city where everyone is constantly trying to prove their individuality through style, I can pretty much wear whatever the hell I want and call it style.

I have decided to start this new venture with a “style diary” from my time in London. I feel like any time I travel to Europe I’m trying twice as hard to not look like a basic America and I undoubtedly fail every time.

Processed with VSCO with a6 presetI pretty much always resort to any sort of monochrome black outfit with a different colored jacket. It’s an easy look to put together and it’s slimming (which is never a bad thing.) And of course on any bad hair day, I resort to a baseball hat. The jacket is from Old Navy. It’s a nice lightweight fleece jacket that has a moto jacket look to it.

If I was a rich girl (na na na na na): I’m in love with the shape of these sunglasses. I wear them all the time. They are $10 sunglasses from a store on the corner of St. Marks. If I was a rich girl, I’d get a better pair. Like these:

I dressed it down for daytime with some white tennis shoes (mainly cause I wear those shoes all the time). This small Kate Spade bag is the perfect small bag. It’s small but still big enough to hold my oversized wallet. It’s not sold anymore but another small Kate Spade is this link. I’m also obsessed with these Free People sunglasses. They were surprisingly only $20. And yes, I totally bought them for this trip because their design is called “London Calling.”Processed with VSCO with a6 presetProcessed with VSCO with s2 presetProcessed with VSCO with a6 presetThe last three outfits I got from American Eagle when all their summer clothes were 60% off. It was the perfect time of year to need clothes for the beach.Processed with VSCO with s2 presetThis dress I got from Old Navy for $10 during a sale. It’s just a simple black dress with daisies on it, but over time I’ve been able to dress it up a bunch of different ways, this being the more casual of them. Processed with VSCO with a6 presetProcessed with VSCO with a6 presetSwitched up the all black for a white crop top with some small cutout pattern. Still always prefer to stick to basic colors. These super high wasted jeans from American Eagle are amazing! They are super comfortable and they make your legs look way longer. I think it’s a sign of maturity that I replace leggings with black jeans now when I’m trying to dress up (lawlz). Processed with VSCO with a6 presetProcessed with VSCO with a6 presetMore Purpose Tour merch! I am not necessarily a huge fan of Justin Bieber. I actually bought the shirts because I really like the graphics. It’s a cool piece with an edgy design that is easy to play into outfits because it sticks to black and white and a bit of red on the back.
