Despite living in London, it's rare I ever have a full day to myself to actually play tourist in my own city. Days are dotted with bus trips to and from Oxford Circus and Soho for meetings, but it's very rare that I actually ever get to step inside a beautiful museum, or boat it along the river. So, a couple of weeks ago when Joe and I were spending the evening in the city- we decided to hop on a bus to the Victoria and Albert Museum and loose an hour or two winding between the beautiful marbled bodied statues and admiring the intricately crafted Chinese fashion (which almost made me wish I was still studying art and textiles- the place was rife with inspiration)! We also paid a visit to the Tate Modern, which although usually results in us having to get our arty hats on; 'Yes, it's a piece of metal, but what does it mean'- had a really lovely afternoon, and it certainly made a change from my regular haunt that is Topshop Oxford Circus.

For our little adventure I opted for a new favourite Topshop top (which although bared a little more midriff than I'd usually opt for, was the perfect summery piece) with my cropped biker jacket, and some new favourite silver loafers that I picked up in Next on an impulsive Saturday afternoon shopping spree (and which make me feel a little more like David Bowie than they probably should)...

  26. That top is so cute and it pairs well with your leather jacket. I wish the weather was cool enough here to wear leather in the summer. But Texas gets so hot, I leave the leather for the winter.

  27. I love your top, amazing pairing with the white skirt. Your shoes are so cool and your leather jacket makes this look edgy.

  42. You look absolutely beautiful. There really is nothing better than pretending to be a tourist in the area you live - there's always so many hidden treasures that on a day-to-day basis you simply overlook.
