Past & Present London

What a busy week I have had! The beginning of 2013 has really got off to a good start, I feel so optimistic about this year seeing new places and achieving a lot. Yesterday I went up the Shard for Jack's 21st birthday, I think I may have been a little more excited than him and it wasn't even my birthday haha! The view is incredible these are a couple of my photos but I don't want to ruin it for people, I found it amazing seeing how the Thames curves round London, and isn't London so incredible that I can stand in a modern building, the Shard, but see old historic London such as the Tower of London. One of the many reasons why I love this city! I was able to spot my old house as well on the South bank, which I miss so much & it may seem lame but I am always a bit sad when I go back to that area. Saying that we did go for a walk that way, which is where I took my outfit photo as it has this gorgeous street which has these cute little terrace houses and I always feel like I am stepping back in time when I walk down it.

This jumper is so out there for me! I was in a good mood on Monday and it caught my eye straight away, I did hesitate a bit but then thought 'no Ellie you must wear more colour' as I wear way too much black! I really like it, I want a lighter pair of jeans to team with it as for some reason it makes me think of the 60s, maybe I can practice a beehive as well? Where is the best place for jeans besides topshop leigh jeans? This jumper has to be the most unpractical thing to wear at the top of the Shard though as it has holes in it so I was frozen! This jumper has made me feel really excited about spring, the days are lighter and feeling longer and the sun is out so  I say roll on spring!

Do you have any plans of going up the Shard? What do you think of the colour green? Something you wear often?

  1. I wear my Topshop Leigh jeans all the time, they're my favourite pair. Though I got a cheap pair from H&M a few months ago, and they're surprisingly good considering they were only £20!

    That jumper is such a lovely colour too! Hope you had fun, those views are incredible :) xx

    1. They were £25 each and are best to book online, if you buy tickets on the day they are £30 which is a bit cheeky! Really worth going :) x

  11. You look good in that bright shade, and it definitely reminds me of spring too! Black is a safe color for me too, but it's good to branch out sometimes!
