Given my enthusiasm for them in Spain, I was a little surprised to realize this morning that I hadn't worn my winter shorts yet during the 30x30 challenge. The fact that they were folded on the floor of our wardrobe with the very small pile of 'non-30x30' clothes might have something to do with it, but in all honesty, I think I've felt just the littlest bit self-conscious about wearing them lately. They are just so... short. I decided to ease back into wearing them by pairing them with some basic black tights, and wound up with an outfit that's both a semi-tribute to Sarah of The Stylish Heart and a very close cousin of this one.
Don't let the slightly warm white balance of these photos fool you, London is still consistently cold, drizzly, and just overcast enough to give me the deathly pallor of a real native (I kid, I kid). I think the sort-of funky weather has been contributing to my sort-of funky mood over the last few days, as is the very real possibility that I have a milder version of the cold that had Chris stuck in bed a few days ago. I'm hoping to shake it off quickly though, as tomorrow's our last day here and I definitely want to make the most of it - a trip to Camden Market, visit to the Serpentine Gallery, and hopefully a drink or two in Shoreditch. There's a bar there with foosball tables, and boyfriend is seriously good - maybe he'll even win us a few free rounds.
