Let’s go for a wander…

On Tuesday I made a quick trip down to London for the day to meet up with my friend Claire! We managed to pack loads in and here is a condensed photo-diary of what we got up to that day!

We stopped for tea and cakes in the gorgeous Victorian tea rooms at the V&A


I love this place…

We went to the Telling Tales exhibition which was free admission and marvelled at all the Norwegian furniture and objects on display.

We then went on check out the Future Fashion now exhibition (Royal College of Art) that was on at the same time as well as check out the fashion exhibits.

In the permanent fashion exhibits we spotted a few gems such as the infamous Chanel, Piano dress…

…but also spotted this Juicy tracksuit that has managed to worm it’s way into fashion history. We both bought the same rings…which were completely unnecessary but that adds all the more to the fun!We hopped off the tube at Leicester square and headed to China town for dim sum…Walked off the dim sum with a stroll around St James park, look it’s Buckingham Palace in the distance…oooh. Tourist attractions never get old…even after so many visits!I attempted to peer into the allotment scheme that they had in the park. I’m so short, these photos make me laugh…

Neither of them were at quite the right height…Denim jacket (ASOS) Belt (Vintage) Skirt (Good one) Tights (Oasis) Shoes (Converse)

Walked through the Horse Guard at Whitehall…

…and I adopted the typical tourist pose..We also went to the National Portrait Gallery which was really good. We went to see the BP Portrait awards 2009 which was free admission so that was even better! Before we went home we stopped off in Covent Garden for Mochas


…and Claire had a yummy ice cream and waffles! It looked sooooo good!

Oooh and guess what. I am off to London again tomorrow for the weekend and so I must go and finish packing!
