A few weeks ago, Paul and I ventured into London on a Saturday for the first time in ages. Since we’ve moved a bit further out to save, I spend almost 3 hours a day on the tube so it’s not always on my to do list come the weekend. However my list of places to go is mounting up with new spots popping up all of the time, so after checking TFL we hopped on the tube to Oxford Circus to have a wander around.
We started off in Carnaby Street and made our way through Soho to Covent Garden, stopping by Ape and Bird to grab some lunch. If you’ve not been to one of the Polpo restaurants before, I strongly recommend going – the spinach and egg pizzette is one of my favourite dishes!
For a day out and about I wore these khaki pleated trousers, which I’m finding really versatile. They’re easily dressed down with a pair of black Birkies and a simple cami top or dressed up with heels. I like the ‘awkward length’ and culotte like fit and I think they’re easily going to take me all the way through to Autumn. I liked them so much, I’ve since also bought them in navy!
It was a good day clocking up those steps, grabbing coffee around Carnaby and sampling a few goodies from the new bakery Crumbs and Doilies in Kingly Court and by luck a meringue kiss from the lovely Meringue Girls pop up kiss booth on Carnaby Street! Might have to make the weekend trip into London more often…
