(Translation of title: I went to Cardiff.)
Here are some outfit photos, taken on Friday by my friend Angelique in Cardiff, Wales. I suppose there's nothing about these photos that indicate my travel, but I do plan on sharing a few photos from the trip once I edit them.
My aunt sent me this skirt earlier this month in a care package, along with a few pairs of Missoni x Target socks and tights. I briefly met up with her on Thursday in a cafe at Heathrow, which was very wonderful indeed. I hadn't seen her in practically two months, so however short the visit was, it was great to catch up and see a familiar face, particularly that of an incredible family member!
Speaking of familiar faces, I ran into my friend from my hometown who is also studying abroad in England. Turns out, he and his friend took a trip to Cardiff for the weekend as well! It was incredibly ironic, since we had talked earlier that week about possibly meeting up in London at some point. It left me in a state of shock, in all honesty!
In celebration of Halloween, many clubs were advertising special nights with spooky music and fancy dress. Naturally, we had to dress up as something... so upon finding ears and furry coats, we decided to be sheep. Dressing up was an experience in itself; we were commonly mistaken for pigs, cats, and whichever other animal has ears and fur. When we arrived back at the hostel, we took many photos of us, well, being sheep (or "sheepin' it up" as Angelique put it) only to discover the following day that the manager had seen footage of the incident. Embarrassing is surely an understatement. I do think the hilarity outweighed any mortification, though.
Unfortunately, even at barely half five, it's entirely dark in London and I've a paper to write anyway. I hope your weekend went well!
