London Look #3: Daytime
This morning I had to wake up particularly early to grab day tickets to a show, so I decided to keep things as causal and simple as possible (mostly because I was dead tired).
For my top, I decided on a simple brown tank. I didn’t want the top to be too extravagant since I knew I was pairing it with this multi-colored scarf.
The scarf is a Cynthia Rowley design that I got at Marshalls for 10 bucks. Not too shabby since the scarf was originally between $30 and $40 dollars. It’s a super light fabric as well, so it works well during the spring and summer seasons.
Overtop of both of these I wore my favorite faux-leather bomber. I’ve had it for about a year and a half and it’s probably my favorite jacket I’ve owned. And (shockingly) it’s a Lauren Conrad design! Not too shabby for a Cali girl.
The jeans are a simple dark wash straight leg from Old Navy. To be honest, I don’t love the fit in the waist but they fit wonderfully everywhere else. And they make my butt look quite nice. Guess you can’t win ‘em all.
For the shoes I wore my tie-up TOMS. I found the design really striking with the flecks of gold in the brown and I knew these could go with almost any type of outfit. They’ve especially been great in London for their comfort factor. I could walk all over the West End and not have sore feet. Score!
For my eyewear, I wore my classic Ray-Ban Wayfarers. They flatter every type of face and the brown and black design (which you probably can’t see in the picture) makes them match everything I own.
My hair is just in it’s natural, Afro-like state, but if you wanted to get waves/curls similar to these, I suggest Garnier Fructis curling products. They wore wonders on all hair types. I’ve used Surf Hair, Curl Construct gel, and Curl Construct mousse (which is the current product in my hair) and they’ve all worked great! It just depends on what kind of wave/curl you want to get. I’ve also heard that mixing water and salt into a spray bottle and misting damp hair with it can also give a similar, beachy effect. Just be sure to scrunch your hair once the spray as been applied and let it air dry.
Tonight I’ll be going to the theatre again, which means another outfit change!! Post to come soon!
