Shopping for and styling wardrobe for a trip is one of my favorite parts of trip planning. Our recent trip to London was no exception. Today's post shares details on my looks from the trip with the city as a backdrop. These outfits are a nice mini capsule of Fall/Winter 2016 city style, and from what I am seeing on the runways for the Spring 2017 ready-to-wear collections, these tops will transition right through to spring! I hope you are inspired, and don't forget to pin these looks to shop them later!
Thanks again to our fab London friends Katie (of Kalanchoe) and Ben (of Twenty First Century Gent) for being such great hosts to us during our trip to your great city. I must also thank Katie for her great photog skills and eye for fashion photography. Check her photography business out at Katie Heath Photography!
This first look was shot in the main square of Covent Gardens. I am absolutely enamored by this Angelay Double Ribbon Blouse from Storets. It had the tailored-but-funky feel.
I wore it with these mid rise raw hem ankle jean leggings from Express and the Kaidance platform pumps from JustFab. If you're not a member of JustFab yet, click here to join (disclosure: this is an affiliate link, which means I receive commission from JustFab if you sign-up using the link)!
That bow detail, though!
Next, we find ourselves strolling along the south bank of the Thames, across from Westminster. This is an extreme high-low top from Storets (I think it's sold out on the site though!). I wore it with wide-legged denim culottes (similar to these from Forever 21), and Madden Girl Eezy Fabric Flats in navy from DSW.
I like the way the crisp look of the top contrasts with the frayed hem and creases on the jeans.
For a morning out brunching and antiquing in Notting Hill, this Vivian Ruched Sleeve Top was a show-stopper! Both the top and navy blue Anastasia Wrap-up Pants are from Storets.
This mixed chain swag choker necklace from Express was a delicate touch that didn't detract from the top.
My shoes for this look are gray Tahari Altar Pumps from DSW. These are very comfortable for city wear.
A London city style shoot wouldn't be complete without a pose by a red phone booth. This easy, breezy off-the-shoulder poplin top from White House Black Market was great for the unseasonably warm fall day. I styled it with jean leggings from Express, my JustFab Hadriel open-toe booties (one of my current footwear BFFs), and a floral lace choker necklace from Express.

For our last evening on the town, we did it up a bit for a posh dinner in SoHo. Fall colors exude in this JustFab mock-neck flare midi dress and coordinating JustFab Jayla platform ankle-strap pumps. The icing was this statement nested mixed chain and bead necklace from Express and JustFab's Donny handbag in grey croc.
