Sun is in the sky, oh why, oh why would I want to be anywhere else?

Cardigan - H&M, necklace - antique, dress - Camden Market, boots - Doc Martens

I picked this dress up at Camden Market the other day for 12 pounds... roughly equivalent to $18. It's adorable and has already garnered a few compliments. Of course, I'm not too sure that it's of the highest quality, but the print was too cool too pass up.

Evidently, London weather and my hair have become enemies. Note to self: must buy a blow dryer and/or hair straightener. I'm used to battling humidity, but not sporadic rain while walking without an umbrella.

These photos were taken at a park behind my house. There's no indication that I'm in London, but I thought the location was photogenic enough as well as secluded enough to prevent a multitude of stares. This will probably be a go-to spot... for now, at least.

Today I have a scheduled walk, apparently focusing on artists and writers in London. I'm pretty excited about it!

On another note, London's weather has made me rethink whether everything I packed is actually practical. I need more sweaters, or jumpers, I suppose I should say. I also wouldn't mind the addition of proper pants... trousers and other more tailored styles. It's already a bit too chilly to wear bare legs, and I don't want to resort to tights just yet.

Here's to a good day!

PS Expect a ton of London-centric lyrics as post titles until the novelty of living here wears off. That may or may not happen.
