London Style Inspiration

London is one of my favorites cities in the world, and I feel as though I have barely scratched the surface of what it has to offer. I spent one weekend there almost exactly a year ago during my semester abroad in the northern UK city Manchester. Although Manchester had a very different vibe than London, one thing that I noticed while living in England for 4 months was that everyone knew how to put together an outfit. Even if it wasn't my style or taste, it was completely polished. The city and its inhabitants oozed a confidence that I wanted to obtain. A year later I am still thinking about this vibrant city: the fashion, the people, the sights. I often look to London for inspiration, and now I'm offering you a little inspiration too. This Winter I'm channeling my inner London it-girl to express my sense of style.

For as long as I can remember I've poured over magazines looking at street style photos and drooling over the newest DJ with two-tone hair. (Said DJ inspired my high school look, not going to lie) London always seemed like a far away place and time, somewhere I would never be, especially not feeling like a local. But something happened when I arrived, I don't know if it was the architecture, the art, or the rush of the city that made me feel like I fit in. Fashion is the way I relate to people, and being out on my own exploring this intriguing place, rich with diverse style choices, I felt inspired and at home. Is there a place like that for you? Somewhere you didn't expect to find? I need to go back to this wonderful city, but until then, I'll always have the pages of Vogue.
