On a Shop Crawl through London

(Vintage dress, GAP denim jacket, Dr. Martens boots, Rebecca Minkoff bag)
Hello from London! After just one day in the city, I’ve already fallen deeply in love with it. Our hotel reminds me of an old British castle, and I honestly don’t want to get out of bed. Dylana and I spent our first day on one crazy shop crawl through London. And not to just any stores…we went to a bunch of hidden underground spots that I never would have found! LN-CC, House of Liza, Beyond Retro. Thank goodness for my pals at Shopikon for taking us on a day’s tour to so many amazing spots. I honestly don’t know what I’d do without them…Shopikon’s become my travel go-to guide. I’m really getting back into vintage and so picked up a few new pieces along the way. By the way, my British friends were so right about London style. It’s very grungy, dark, and gloomy… everyday I feel like wearing more black along with my chunky Docs. I love how the style here is always slightly punk..the girls never look perfect and the boys are pure rock n’ roll. We ended our night over in Dalston, at a real British pub…with the Stones blasting at the bar, and electro playing in the back. Let’s just say it was the perfect start to one incredible trip. Here’s to day 2!

    I’ve only been to London once–you’re seriously making me want to go back… to live. Also love your quirky church lady dress with those chunky boots–seriously I know that sounds weird, but it’s a compliment. You look fab and certainly appropriately dressed for the city you’re in. Hope you’re having a great time.

    Natalie!
    It sounds like you’re having an amazing time in London! This definitely makes me dream more of finally making it there someday 🙂

    That black dress that you’re wearing is gorgeous!
    It’s definitely dark and grungy paired with your denim jacket and Docs. At the same time, the feminine shape and white piping makes it a little more cute, contrasting with the less precious feel of it!

    Oooooh these pictures!
    All those overalls and that food. Those lovely people and you looking as amazing as always and your sister!
    There’s so much to love in all these photos.

    I hope you enjoy the rest of your UK adventures darling!
    Now here’s to dreaming about heading to London someday <3
