london 2.

well this is it, our last day in london! enjoying the view from the london eye, it was the perfect ending to the perfect trip!

and london just so happened to be the city where i found my memorable shopping picks, my new hat and sunnies! loving that they are both by english brands (reiss & linda farrow), and i snagged them both at selfridges. shopping was more than just shopping during our time abroad, it was an experience ;) and now I have these 2 goodies to show for it.

last stop, london town! enjoying the city with a visit to buckingham palace and a walk through the royal parks. london felt like home and is a city we could live in easily. the perfect blend of san francisco and new york, topped off with charming british accents and royalty.

blush is definitely the color of the season. i am loving this easy, breezy, flowing skirt paired with the contrast of leather in the jacket and the bag. #fall enjoy!

skirt: urban outfitters (similar ALL ON SALE here, here & here) | jacket: bcbg (similar options, lots of SALE here, here, here, here, here & here) | booties: steve madden (similar here, here & here) | sunnies: warby parker | bag: cambridge satchel co. @ shopbop | cami: aritzia
