It’s been a long, long week. I got to London last Saturday, and had orientation until Friday. Although I’m pooped, it’s been amazing! Friday wrapped up orientation at London College of Fashion and it was easily my favorite day of the week. We started at 10:30 in the morning with a class entitled “The Idiosyncrasy of being British”, which was followed by a scavenger hunt of sorts around the city. We went to different parts of London, from Soho to the art district, and got to explore and take in the culture and it was just wonderful. The weather’s been amazing, but I also love dreary, gloomy weather, so London is ideal. It’s been around 50 degrees Fahrenheit although it was 30 last week. It’s windy and it gets rainy and it’s everything I could ever want.
As someone who is consistently cold, I have gotten very good at layering. My typical outfit here is a long sleeve shirt (or a thin-ish sweater depending how cold it is), a sweater, leggings, boots, socks, a coat, a beanie, gloves and an oversize purse. There’s no air conditioning here so when I get too hot (like whenever I walk inside after walking around) I just take of a layer and stick it in my bag. Works like a charm! I haven’t had time to take some proper photos, but I did get some outside the Royal Academy. It was very pleasant on Friday so I was able to layer with my leather jacket. Perfect.
I was caught mid-laugh when I had a friend photobomb me. I’ve realized recently that I either look so happy that I’m going to explode or that I look like I just murdered someone, here’s proof against the latter. Anyway, I had more adventures this weekend, but that’s for another post. Happy Sunday one and all. Here’s to a wonderful week.
