This weekend the Mr. and I felt as if we were right back in London. It was overcast, light rain and not too cold, not too warm — it was just right. We actually got a bit nostalgic and started talking about our time there “Remember when we’d walk to Chiswick House Grounds on Sunday and have a tea at the café?” or “Remember when we’d go for a long Sunday walk at Hampstead Health and M would run off?”
After all, we spent 6 1/2 years of our life there, it’s impossible to forget!
In true London fashion, we rounded up the niños and headed out for a Sunday walk…a loooong walk. We didn’t have a plan, only to get out of the house and explore our lovely neighborhood. Eventually we ended up at the playground where M ran around and Little L experienced the swing for the first time. So cute!
That morning before heading out I had done a little cleaning at home and had started sorting through clothing. I dug out a few sweaters and was thrilled to be reunited with this Old Navy Taylor Swift style Fox Sweater I had bought (and worn) while pregnant even thought it’s not a maternity piece.
In true London style, I added the mac/trench and black skinny jeans (okay, so they are JEGGINGS, but don’t say anything!) Actually, I probably would have worn wellies if we were in the UK, but this outfit called for my mushroom colored Superga sneakers from The Shoe Hive which you know I LOVE!
Even my hair swore we were back in London — my baby hairs were all over the place and the dampness did me no favors.
I thought the Taylor Swift style fox sweater is a cute and playful look ideal for a family day out and it also meant I could wear the blouse that has been hanging in my closet for months now. Mostly because I doesn’t fit over my hips but under the sweater you couldn’t tell. It really is all about how you style and wear things. I am pretty good at hiding my wide hips and tummy — I thank my mamá for that, she taught me how to dress for my body early on.
In the end our London day out in Alexandria was a success — I personally love overcast days and it certainly brings back beautiful memories of our former British life. I wouldn’t mind a few more days like these.
