Summer escape: London


I must confess, I've been bitten by the Olympic Games bug. I would never ever have thought that possible, I'm definitely not the one to watch sport on TV (maybe with the exception of ice hockey), but these Games have kind of crept upon me. I've been really enjoying watching swimming (Michael Phelps will always be my champion!) and tennis (I was kind of devastated when Roger Federer lost the final to Andy Murray), and now that both these disciplines are over, I can finally get back to my reading list :) With the Games in full swing, I could only choose London as my next Summer getaway destination (you can see my ideal Paris and New York wardrobes here). London girls are known for their unique and original sense if style, characterized by unexpected color combos, edgy details and seemingly "out of place" accessories that add a touch of originality. I've only been to London once, but I really hope to get back there soon to pick up a few style tips as well as some new wardrobe treasures from Topshop and Dorothy Perkins. Who represents the London style best for you?

  2. I love the first outfit - the combination of bright red tights and the yellow TopShop blazer is just gorgeous and very London IMO!

    The owl pocket watch necklace is so cute too - it's definitely my favourite piece of the whole outfit!
