Red is arguably one of my favorite colors to wear. There’s just something about the complex, romantic color that makes me feel fiery, energized, and ready for an adventure. As we headed out for an early dinner in London, we took the chance to play tourist and take some photos with these iconic, red phone booths that were in excellent condition compared to most others in the city.
If you read my viral post about Why I Love My Tieks, you’ll understand why I couldn’t resist donning this pair in London to explore the city. Look out for a post about why they’re my go-to travel shoe coming soon. You may remember this dress from last summer, shown here, and how much I love it! I also wore it when I went to see Shakira perform in Detroit last August, and it’s quickly become one of my favorite dresses. It’s also on sale for 60% off, making it less than $100!
If you remember this post or this post from last year, you’ll know how much I adore metal purses, particularly those by From St. Xavier. There’s just something about the elegance, shine, and uniqueness of metal handbags that really sets them apart from the average leather handbag and turns heads. I was stopped about a dozen times in London by women (and a guy) wanting to know where I got this bag. From St. Xavier is one of my favorite handbag companies. Handcrafted in Australia, they are crafted out of the finest silver, brass, velvet, and take several days to complete each piece. They are truly objet d’art!
Robin’s outfit was the same shade of red as my dress, although we didn’t get to grab a photograph together (I’m leery of handing over my camera to strangers on the street for them to take a photo of us). His red pants are also currently on sale, and come in more than a dozen colors. He is 6’3″, and wears a 32 in these pants, his usual size. For whatever reason, we rarely saw other people in South Kensington wearing colors outside of black, red, or white, so we fit right in.
