in bloom

to say this winter has been brutal, would be an understatement. so i was ecstatic to see the weather in london was going to not be freezing...or as freezing as new york. so i took this opportunity to start bringing out my spring pieces, while still trying to make them winter-appropriate.

easy street

our time in london was short, but thankfully we were able to carve out a little time to hit up regent street for a little (and much needed) shopping! of course, we stopped at our favorite european-based stores like ted baker and zara, but the afternoon wouldn't have bee complete without a visit to the kate spade shop! duh!

rain or shine

whenever i travel or have an outdoor event, i check the weather obsessively. as in i whip out the radar and become the female al roker. so before leaving for london, i knew rain was going to be inevitable...it was just a matter of when it was going to happen. the weather predictions seemed to change every 10 minutes so we left a lot of our planning up to fate. aside from the crazy winds our first day there (anyone remember the snap of dana's hat flying off!?), the weather seemed to be on our side. but there was one morning where we weren't so lucky.

london // run for the notting hill

oh hello london!! it has been so long (okay okay only a year and a half) since my last trip to london but i was so excited to bring dana along this time around! one of the places i knew i wanted to revisit was notting hill. no exceptions! as the self-designated trip planner, i blocked off an entire afternoon to just stroll the streets of the cutest neighborhood in london and i still feel like i needed more time!
