In the second set of outfits shot with the lovely Katya in London, we further explored the Lodge Gardens in Regent's Park. This tucked-away, isolated region of the park features striking foliage, serene benches and reading areas, and stunningly-designed floral designs everywhere. In every shot taken, an abundance of violet and magenta flowers are dotting the background, in contrast with my very city-esque ensemble. While the lovely peasant blouse – a surprising concoction by Hollister, which usually features more evidently 'mainstream' clothing – was in keeping with the location of the shoot, the other high-street buys certainly had a more urban vibe to them. This outfit features more labels than usual, ranging from Karl Lagerfeld to Kate Spade, but were all some of my recent buys in the wonderful city of London, where shopping is accessible and ultimately rewarding. I am so grateful that Katya and I were able to find such a beautiful location to shoot, and we got to enjoy the surroundings as well as getting some amazing shots in between.
My all-time favorite aspect of this outfit is the crossbody bag by Karl Lagerfeld. While the legendary fashion designer is more known for his reign at Chanel, his own line is just as impressive. While visiting the Regent Street store, I fell in love with this versatile bag, featuring elegant gold embellishments and a textured base. Black and gold is a new combination for me, but one I am beginning to appreciate more and more. The Juicy Couture necklace – with it's lucky horse-shoe shape – was another gold addition, with the Kate Spade bangle topping it off. Versatility is key when buying jeans, as they are always a staple item to have ready in your closet. This pair of Zara jeans, with a slightly-faded quality, is one I have been wearing multiple times since I first bought it, with its casual yet chic design. The outfit was collectively tied together with my H&M wedges – seen in previous outfit posts – giving it the ultimate city-girl vibe I was channeling. And London is the best kind of city to do this in. Thanks to Katya for capturing one of my favorite looks and one of my most memorable days in the city!
