A Ralph Lauren skinny polo tee and my first day out in London
London, I am here! Even though I have traveled half the world, somehow I never got to London till now! On my first day out, I fixed to meet with an old friend at Oxford Circus. Not knowing what to expect, I dressed simply in a Ralph Lauren skinny polo tee and True Religion jeans with Dansko clogs for lots of walking! A Gucci tote in tan was the perfect bag to carry my camera and other things for the day. As I exited the underground, I was quite overwhelmed to see the crowd and the shops and the frantic pace of life all around me. I just stood there rooted to the ground holding my belongings close to me and before my friend arrived, quickly snapped a few pictures of the surroundings.
Topshop was tempting but this was not my day to shop.....only a day to stand back and observe. I loved how the London flags kind of framed the street.
My friend wanted me to see the Liberty department store, one of the oldest shopping stores in London. I was mesmerized by the interiors as we walked through the store and came out the other end. Then came Carnaby Street and Piccadily Circus, I was still quite stunned by the crowd and the number of tourists hanging out around this place!
We decided to stop by at Jamie's Kitchen for lunch.
Lunch was a delicious tomato and feta cheese salad with squids on the side and cranberry juice-absolutely delicious!
For dessert, we got ourselves some iced latte before taking the train to my friend's home.
The London metro can be quite confusing for a first timer but I figured out I needed to get off at Baker Street to change trains; I was glad my friend was with me and as a memory of this very special day, she took some brilliant shots of me at the underground station.
It was rather quite hot and I was doing fine in my Ralph Lauren skinny polo tee--the fabric is so comfortable and breathable for hot weather!
We got off the train in between to snap some pictures of my outfit!
