Weekend in London - Part 1




These could easily have been worn in Pride & Prejudice, love how these were only 'walking' clothes

How wide is this ballgown?! Love how women of the time were just 'expected to gracefully make their way through doorways'

Hello! :-)

This is part 1 of the photos I took whilst in London last weekend.
On the Saturday, we headed straight to Covent Garden, one of my favourite places in London. As usual there was a street entertainer on when we arrived, who actually juggled with knives upside down, pretty crazyyy I know. We then met up with my cousin for lunch in Bill's which was lovely. I had a grilled halloumi cheese, hummus & roasted pepper burger, seriously delicious!
 Afterwards we had a wander round Carnaby Street, Liberty was one of the department shops I really wanted to go in and ooooh it's just so pretty!
On Sunday we went to the V&A Museum, primarily to see the fashion section, showing clothing from the 1700's through to the 1960's. I took more or less photos of everything in there but have featured my favourites in this post.

Ways I would Style H&M Trousers

So I recently purchased these gorgeous trousers from H&M whilst in London (blog post to follow) and to be honest, they were a bit of an impulse buy as I saw them on the mannequin and thought, I have to have those! They will be perfect for S/S as they tick the monochrome trend, are floral which I love, and are made of a light, breezy fabric aswell as being slightly tailored. 
Although at first I thought they might be quite tricky to style, I really love the outfits I have come up with. As shown above, by adding a bright lipstick such as this one from the Kate Moss collection for Rimmel, can really make a monochrome outfit pop.
I would also accessorise with gold or silver jewellery because I think either would work with the colour palette.
Hope you like the looks :-)
