Down by Big Ben

Down by Big Ben 1The last few days I spent in London were definitely packed full of sight seeing–Big Ben, Parliament, Tower Bridge, oh and you can’t forget about Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park and all the other wonderful holiday markets that were going on that time of year. I was definitely trying to make up for all the time I felt I’d lost that month stuck in the library writing papers and studying for finals so I wanted to make sure I didn’t leave London with any regrets!

On this particular day, I ended up taking a little self-guided tour through Parliament. I wanted to get a bit more dressed up, seeing that I was going to go see the law-making centre of the United Kingdom. Here, I’ve styled together a jeweled collar herringbone sweater with a velvet circle skirt. Now, I don’t usually style a look in just one color from head-to-toe, but in this case, I thought the two burgundy pieces really worked well together.

I love how the peter pan collar of the sweater is jeweled, dressing up the sweater and whole look as well. To be more discreet, I emulated the jeweled collar in my choice of jewelry–a simple yet also statement stud earrings.
