London part II >> Brick Lane

Estas son unas pocas fotos más del fin de semana en Londres. Ya os dije en el anterior post que hice unas cuantas compras, y aquí os presento el primer resultado, este vestidito tan gracioso. Me encanta el estampado, los cuellos , ¡es el vestido perfecto! (Igual un poco demasiado ajustado si... pero ¡que más da!)
En los tres días que he estado, no he hecho nada de turismo, me he pasado el día paseando por zonas que me gustan de la ciudad, de compras, mirando a la gente (que estilazo tienen, y además nadie mira raro a nadie por como van vestidos), y tomando capuchinos. Y que bueno está el café, además yo que soy muy cafetera, estaba contentísima pidiéndome large capuccinos (a mi un café con leche normal me dura un suspiro) y acompañándolos con todo tipo de bollos. Conclusión, que iba paseando por Londres atacada de los nervios y esta semana no he tomado ni un solo dulce, ¡que empacho!
El domingo fuimos al mercadillo de Brick Lane, luego compramos unas flores en Columbisa Road para la amiga a la que visitábamos y paramos a comer en The Luxe en Spitalfields Market. Y el lunes teníamos solo la mañana, así que hicimos un viaje exprés a Urban Outfitters, porque no podía abandonar el Reino Unido sin comprarme un bolso (ya os lo enseñaré), nos sentamos tranquilamente a desayunar, ypo tomé el brownie más dulce de la historia (aggh) acompañado de un buen café, como no, y después al aeropuerto. Un buen plan ¡no? ¡Ojalá pudiese repetir este finde!

So here you have more pictures of my weekend in London. As I told you on my previous post, I did a little shopping and here I show you part of the result, this black and white bird print dress! It's such a cute, quirky little dress, I love everything about it, the print, the collar, it's perfection!
This time in London I did absolutely no sightseeing and just spent the three days walking around, shopping, people watching and drinking one too many cappuccinos. Coffee was so nice, (at least nicer than what I drink at home) that I kept ordering large cappuccinos, which I accompanied with all kinds of pastries. This was so nice at first, but I had to go back to the regular size since I got all jittery, and I haven´t tried anything with sugar for a whole week!
On Sunday we headed to Brick Lane Market, then bought some flowers at Columbia Road for our friend we were visiting and had the tastiest salad for lunch at The Luxe in Spitalfields Market. We had Monday morning to make a quick visit to Urban Outfitters, because I couldn´t possibly leave the UK without a bag I had spotted there on Saturday. Then we had breakfast, I had the sugariest brownie on earth (disgusting) with a big cup of coffee of course, and then we were off to the airport! A pretty good plan, if you ask me!

Y para el domingo por la noche, un cambio rapidito a mis taconazos, y bien que me arrepentí más tarde. Caminamos TANTO que creía que no llegaba a casa por mi propio pié! 

And for Sunday night, just a quick change into my high heels which I deeply regretted later, we walked SO much that evening I thought I would en up having to walk bare foot home!

This outfit is SO adorable, especially with the pattern on your dress and the maroon tights! It looks like you stepped out of a 1960s photograph from London.. so it was a good outfit for your surroundings. ^-^ It looks like you had a lovely time- I've never been to London before, but I would love to go. It must be gorgeous there!! x

Hi Amaia!! Of course! My lipstick is from the Italian brand Kiko Make Up Milano, and it is shade #84. Much of my make up is from that brand- have you ever heard of it? I'm not 100% sure if it is sold outside of Italy... It's too bad though because the makeup is amazing quality and all at amazing prices! But Kiko #84 is definitely my favorite red that I own. ^-^

That's exciting to hear about your redecorating plans! On the one hand it's fun to do because it's like a fresh start, but on the other hand, it can be stressful because you don't know which direction to move in, right?! xx

Thanks so much or the stylish blogger award nom. It means a lot ;) And yea, I have been sooo stressed and busy. Went through a move, hunted for and started a new job.. and im sure you know how stressful that can all be.

But now I'm back. I saw your comment the other day and I was like, dude, I realllly need to get back to blogging. I missed it alot.

You went to London! Soo jealous! I have always wanted to go. I'm glad you did the sort of anti touristy thing and kind of just hung w the locals. Always a fun way to go:)
