Jumper - H&M

Jeans - Stradivarius
Shoes - White Converse, Chuck Taylors

I have always struggled with being able to look good in a jumper. I had pretty much sworn off any kind of jumper until last February (2018). During a much-needed shopping trip, I found the perfect jumper. It wasn’t too big or frumpy and worked perfectly with my petite chest. Since then, I’ve managed to conquer the jumper picking up a few tips and tricks along the way.

In the words of Patricia Bright, who I absolutely adore, “If you don’t have cleavage, you always have clavicle”. And you can apply this theory -yes, that is what we’re calling it- to everything and anything. Especially jumpers. Jumpers most of the time rely on cleavage to stop you looking frumpy but if you don’t have that, use your clavicle! Everyone has one. Find jumpers that highlight your clavicle, also known as your collarbone, the bone that runs across from shoulder to shoulder. Go for ones with lower necklines, round or V-necks. I’m currently crushing on this v-neck jumper from H&M. It’s so warm and it shows off just the right amount of skin. 

On top of that, tuck the front of the jumper into a pair of high waisted jeans to give it a little edge and to break it up. It stops the jumper from looking baggy and helps it to fall in a flattering way.

When was the last time you did something touristy in your city? Like actually PAY for one of the tourist attractions? Can’t remember? Well neither can I. I’ve gone to touristy areas in London, taken touristy pictures, but the last time I paid for an attraction in London was about five years ago.

My brother and I were in town (well, the city) the other day to have lunch with our Mum. It was fun to see where she worked. We then headed towards Tower Bridge to go on the Tower Bridge experience. This is where you can learn about how the iconic bridge works and get to look out at the view from the top of the towers.

It was cheaper than I thought it would be considering the prices of some London attractions. It was £9.80 for an adult (£4.20 for a child & £6.80 for a student). We went in for free as I used my time credits, something I was given for volunteering at a city of London library. They have a bunch of other cool stuff you can use them for, so I'll definitely be checking that out.

At the top of the tower is a high-level walkway which has a glass floor where you can see the road below. It didn’t scare me as much as I thought it would. After all, it would have to be quite strong to have a lot of people walking over it all day. We took lots of pictures including the classic shoe selfie.

The day was really fun and it gave me a new love for the city. When you live in a city, you tend to stay away from the attractions. You tend to visit them once when you're young and not again. It's like a 'been there, done that' type of thing. 

It made a nice change to join the queue of tourists you always walk past.
