STYLE GURU STYLE: An Afternoon at the Market

STYLE GURU STYLE: An Afternoon at the Market

Ah, London; the sights, the smells, the exciting electricity of the city that inspire some of the best fashion in the world.  After only a couple of weeks living here, I’ve found my favorite activity in roaming all of the great markets that this wonderful city has to offer.  When indulging in the many exotic flavors found in the market, you might as well indulge in style!

Early fall in London has been pretty mild thus far, so I took the opportunity to wear my favorite jean skirt! Just as London is a mix of styles, full of rockers, polished preps and edgily chic dressers, I decided to mix styles in my look.  In order to do this, I chose my slightly rugged ’90s inspired bright blue wash, button-up Free People jean skirt.  This skirt is so versatile, and can transition from early to late fall with just the addition of some black tights and your favorite pair of booties.  I decided to mix this slightly edgy yet cute look with my romantic blouse, similar to the one with the link provided; it’s cute and visually interesting, with detailed red embroidery on the neckline and upper sleeves.  I kept the shoes polished and simple, yet a little edgy, which nude, gold-studded flats.  My bag remains with the polished yet edgy look, and is sure to bring me from the Tube, to the markets, to the wonderful Oxford Street shopping seamlessly.  With tons of room for my camera, wallet, shades and anything else I would need, it is truly a simple and chic everything bag, maintaining a crisp European flare that is sure to blend with any look.  I can quickly transition this look for class by simply throwing my textbooks in my bag, studying in style! With this look, an appetite and a few friends to join me, I’m ready to experience all that the markets have to offer!
