My Favorite Zaful Sweaters

          Although the colder seasons are not my favorite, I do love wearing cozy sweaters.  I always feel like Zaful has a very good selection of fashion-forward ones.  I have chosen some of my favorites to show you, in case you are in the market for a new sweater.  I always go for sweaters that are colorful or more interesting because they are such a wardrobe staple that it can get boring wearing basic ones year after year.  The second one and the fourth one are my favorites.  They are just so cute!  Let me know what you guys think.  

Exploring More of London

Tower of London
Tower Bridge
St. Paul's Cathedral
Westminster Abbey
Palace of Westminster

CARDIGAN: Primark  |  DRESS: Target  |  LEGGINGS: Forever 21

          Some of these sites were some of my favorite things to see in London.  I loved going to Tower of London because it has so much history.  I feel like you could literally feel the age radiating from it.  I know I sound crazy, lol.  Also, Westminster Cathedral and Abbey were amazing.  They are both so grand.  The Cathedral was beautiful.  I didn't expect any of the sites of London to be a huge as they were.  Unfortunately we didn't go into most of the things we saw because they were expensive and too time consuming.  If we went into everything we would only have time to see half of the things we saw.  Sadly, Big Ben was under construction.  The clock was still totally visible.  It was pretty surreal seeing it in real life.  That pub that is covered in flowers is called Churchill Arms.  It wasn't open when we walked past but it's basically my dream pub.  If you know me, you would know that I love flowers.  

Sweatshirt Dress

 SWEATSHIRT DRESS: Zaful  |  SHOES: Rue 21  |  PURSE: Expressions NYC
          I'm interrupting my Europe posts to post this outfit that I wore yesterday.  I have had my eye on this dress for a few months now.  When I got the chance to make an order from Zaful, I knew I had to get it.  I'm really happy with it.  It fits so well and is really comfortable.  Also, as you probably know I can't resist tassels.  I love it paired with these velvet sneakers because it just looks a little cooler.  I got these from Rue 21 recently because they were on sale.  I will admit that I never go to Rue 21 and that I actually hate it for the most part.  I just find their things to be super poor quality but my sister wanted to go.  I got lucky that day by finding these shoes.  

Sky Garden

TOP: H&M (in store)  |  JACKET: Last minute emergency purchase from Walmart  |  PURSE: Michael Kors  |  JEANS: Forever 21  |  BOOTS: Primark (in store)
          I bought this top a while ago from H&M, with the intention of wearing it in Paris.  I decided I would look too much like a cheesy tourist, so I wore it in London.  I'm pretty sure it's still available in store. This day we went to Sky Garden.  Sky Garden in a huge garden that is located on the top floor of a sky scraper in London.  It has really good views of the city on all four sides.  There is a restaurant, snack bar, and bar at the top, as well as tons of seating.  You can even walk outside to get a better view.  Best of all, it's free! We chose to do this instead of going in the London Eye because it's free and you can basically stay up there as long as you want.  Overall I think it is probably just better.  Maybe next time I will go in The London Eye but it's hard to justify paying that much when Sky Garden is free.  If you are hoping to go to Sky Garden you have to get tickets in advance.  They release tickets on Mondays for the following two weeks and it fills up very quickly.  I would happily return.  

London is Calling

Hyde Park
Kensington Palace

Buckingham Palace

          I just got back from my first trip to Europe! We explored London and Paris for 10 days.  It was a super exciting and eventful trip.  We did almost everything that we intended on doing and a few extras.  We also got engaged (a surprise to me)! I will do a whole post on how that happened later on. I have a bunch of posts planned about my trip.  I'm not sure what the total number will be yet, but I plan on doing outfit posts, travel advice posts, overall picture posts, and my engagement post.  
          This first post covers our visit to Buckingham Palace and a few other sites.  Buckingham Palace is huge and pretty.  There weren't any guards with the big hats right in front of the palace.  There were some a few streets over that were marching.  I'm not sure what the building was called.  love London so much.  It's officially my favorite city.  It is just really special.  It's hard to explain.  London has such pretty architecture with lots of character and history.  The parks are magical too.  You feel like you are literally in Alice in Wonderland.  I'll elaborate more on the parks later.
