Outfit post (simple classic) and a few London snaps

Today I am doing a quick post because after an stressful Sunday, I am not really in the greatest of moods and the last thing I feel like doing is writing a long post. So instead I thought I would share my outfit from Saturday. I went to London to celebrate my friend's birthday.

Just so you know, the leather jacket was not intended to be a part of my outfit! I decided to do some toned down classic because the friends I was meeting with were not lolitas. Although they have seen me in lolita before, I didn't want to take the attention away from my friend. And it worked! I had one person come up to me and one person took a sneaky photo without my permission but apart from that, I was left alone. I wore my Meta lucky pack floral JSK and matching barrette (attached to a black bow), with my black Bodyline blouse, bolero and plain black offbrand accessories. It is not a particularly exciting lolita outfit, but it worked for my personal needs.

We went to Hamleys which is a huge toy shop. I managed to find some breathing space on the stairs, which looked amazing. They were all painted and had 3D flowers coming off the walls and wrapped around the stairs.

A completely random book we food! Carrying on with the theme, there is another wall in the background covered in foliage! This time the leaves were real and the shop calls this the "living wall".

We are fans of Angry Birds, so Jo had a face-off with the largest Angry Bird in Hamleys. I would have loved to get one of these but I doubt there is enough room in my house.

A random plug we found!

We went to the Hummingbird Bakery. I thought the display cupcakes were really cute! I had a chocolate cupcake with chocolate frosting. It tasted amazing. This is my 2nd time going there and it is fun going to the actual bakery, rather than just using the cookbook at home.

The Olympic count-down clock in Trafalgar Square. London is going to go absolutely mental next Summer! Maybe I should have an Olympics party.

And when I was having a bad Sunday, I was really craving this children's book. It is one of the most amusing books I have ever had the pleasure of reading.

I should be back to normal on Wednesday and I am very sorry for the odd post today.

  5. I did have a really fun day on Saturday. Hamleys is such a wonderful shop and the book we found was brilliant!

    Thank you Abbey for showing me the parody! I am going to have to show that to the others. I think I like the original more though :)
