Every year, my husband and I try to take at least one major vacation. So last month, we packed our bags and hopped across the pond to London. It was a second trip to the city for both of us, and we had a blast doing the usual touristy bits, scarfing down local cuisine (I drew the line at black pudding), and just simply enjoying one another’s company.
Check out a few snaps we took along the way…
I scored big time by doing a blind bid on Priceline.com for our hotel accommodations. We wound up at the beautiful St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel.
I had every intention of taking daily outfit pics, but there was one slight problem: IT WAS FREEZING! Seriously, these few snaps outside my hotel room were about all I could muster.
Outfit Details: American Apparel Dress, Uniqlo Hat, Missoni Scarf via eBay, J. Crew Boots
Harrod's Department Store! I could happily have spent an entire day here. The furniture and gift departments were especially breathtaking. Word to the wise for my fellow Americans: the exchange rate is NOT in our favor. So this was strictly a "window-shopping" excursion.
And of course, it wouldn't be a proper British experience without High Tea at The Ritz!
Taking a spin around The London Eye was definitely one of our tourist highlights. Rumor has it that they're building a similar (but taller) structure in Staten Island. I can't wait!
A breathtaking view of the Palace of Westminster
One of the perks of being a New Yorker is the ability to navigate foreign subway systems like a pro.
Even the phone boots were quaint! Well, at least from the outside... if you know what I mean.
The weather was pretty dreary during our stay, so it was nice to see a welcome blast of color
And that concludes my London photo journey. Hope you enjoyed it!
And when we weren’t taking pics, here are some of the other things we enjoyed during our stay:
