The idea of spending a day in London excites me but a part of me has always found it quite daunting. After all, London is a big city and everyone is constantly on the go and to be honest, I can't keep up with it. I'm not afraid to admit that I cannot deal with the hustle & bustle but I'm slowly getting used to it. When I met Alisha Dandy in London for this shoot, I realised that Sundays in London are simply the best. We were shooting around Somerset House and there was just a tranquil vibe circulating the atmosphere. Who would have thought that I would be able to walk into a quiet cafe in London or not get trampled on by pedestrians whilst walking on the street? Maybe I'm just an amateur and need to get over myself but I don't want to believe that I'm the only one that feels like this. Anyone?
For many of you who follow me on Instagram, you're probably aware of how much I've been living in this cardigan from COS. Good knitwear is simply something you really can't have too much of. Made from a heavyweight wool-silk blend with a speckled quality, this is the perfect boxy, rectangular shaped knit for the cold weather. For maximum comfort, I've paired with my 'not so Gucci' mules from Ego.
* UPDATE * Two years later, I still own both the cardigan and mules - still intact too! However, the trousers certainly don’t fit anymore!
