Spring Sundays in London
We had an amazing, sunny weekend in London last week. I had been craving to lie down on warm grass for hours all week, which is exactly what I ended up this weekend.
On Saturday I met Denny and his friend in Hyde Park, next to the Serpentine. We shared a bottle of tasty French cider. The park was full of people, and the mood was chilled and down-to-earth. I was wearing what’s become my staple weekend top – the striped vintage t-shirt from thebod store, teamed with MIH red mini denim shorts and purple Havana flipflops, easy wavy hair and minimal make up. Oh yeah.
On Sunday I decided to have an equally lazy day and headed to Primrose Hill with my love. Primrose Hill is one my favourite places in London, in particular the back of the hill, where the views are less fancy but the feel more bohemian. I was myself feeling quite bohemian that day, and decided to wear one my favourite pieces from thebod store, the ivory vintage lace dress. I replaced the lace belt that comes with the dress with a yellow vintage floral silk scarf that I got at the last London fashion weekend. I was wearing black leggings, which allowed me to happily roll in the grass, and my beloved black repetto flats.
We finished the day walking in Camden, buying Audrey Hepburn photos and sipping iced lattes at the Starbucks near the Camden Canal. A Perfect London day.
