Hope you are all doing well and hope all those who are currently in exam szn are surviving! Inshallah all of your exams go well 🙂
With the end of the year (I was going to say holiday season but I guess end of the year is more encompassing), I find myself having to go to a lot of events. Parties, banquets, birthdays, and yes, weddings are back. With all of these occasions, I definitely need to add some more dresses to my wardrobe. You know, I’m totally here for mixing up and recreating outfits with pieces I already own, but something new here and there doesn’t hurt 😉
YES, I’m finally here with Part 2 of the #DoneDoneLondon blogposts – the Streets of London. I’m so excited to share, but I’m also a bit sad, because this blogpost officially means my trip is over 😭
OKAY yes I get it, I’ve been back for 2 weeks, of course my trip is over, but I was always looking forward to writing these blogposts and now we are here. Part 2.
In this post, I’ll be sharing all of my adventures after the wedding! I don’t have as many of my outfits to share as I would’ve liked, as some of the pictures of my trip got mysteriously deleted. But, there’s definitely lots to see from London, so don’t worry!
Central London chilling
The day after the last wedding event, the broskis, madre, and I went to do some exploring in Central London.
First, we checked out Baker Street to see where Sherlock Holmes is filmed!
After, we hopped on a bus to Camden Market to check out one of the coolest places I’ve ever been to – The Cereal Killer Cafe.
A few weeks ago, my friend Fatima and I were talking and mutually agreed that we needed some adventure in our lives. We both recognized that our city of Toronto has so many cool places to offer and we have to start our journey somewhere to uncover the hidden beauty of the #6ix. So a couple days ago, we started this mission of exploring Toronto with our first stop – Distillery District!
Distillery District is located a couple blocks from King station in Downtown Toronto. The main intersection is King and Trinity and you can take the 504 streetcar towards Broadsview to get there! Make sure to travel in the right direction though 😉
Distillery District is a historic area, filled with shops, eateries, and many sights to see and is a mix of an old little town with a big flashy city. I tried to capture this essence in a couple photographs below! The District is bursting with culture and heritage, with unique art in galleries and on the street! There are many exclusive finds and something to learn with every turn of a corner. I’m really glad we had a chance to visit and venture around the District! It was nice to see some vintage charm in Downtown Toronto 🙂
It was an off-on rainy day so I decided to go ultra comfy and cozy with the outfit, in case of a downpour! Also, with the humidity in the air, I wanted to be in something oversized and airy to help the air ventilate. I decided to keep my outfit pretty casual and work with the colours of my clothing to create a unique look.
I wore a mix of neutral basic colours for the main components of my outfit – nude hijab, grey sweater, black pants and loafers, and a cream bag. Then, to add a pop of colour, I wore a yellow-green-and-mint floral hijab draped around my neck for added coziness! I swear I know it’s not winter LOL but I couldn’t resist! I actually felt really comfortable throughout the day so it worked out 🙂 This was a perfect outfit for being out-and-about and walking all day long!
