Photos of our day in London


We all went to St Katherines Dock a little while ago and Chris and I decided to go back today, as I didn't really want to go shopping in London. We thought we would go for an early lunch, beverages and a stroll-we had a gorgeous time!!


Todays outfit-Gianni Versace dress,
from Mrs Stings designer sale, £10 and black sandals, Primark £15



We arrived at St Katherines Dock and bought some sandwiches, cake and drink to eat on a lovely green overlooking the Thames-this was our view as we were eating!!!


After eating, we took a stroll around St Katherines Dock and stopped to admire the stunning yachts and power boats in the Marina!!


A pitstop at Cafe Rouge for a pot of earl grey tea for me and Chris-it was like a sun trap here and the boats here were spectacular-one was for sale for only £1.25 million-Chris wondered if they would take a cheque-haha!!!

Onwards to the Tower of London-hello Chris!!


Oh dear, the tides out-I wouldn't like to fall down there-haha!!!

The Tower of London!
The Queen's Stairs-where Royalty used these steps to go into the Tower!!


We had a lovely time here- I would recommend any one who comes to London to visit the Tower-although we didn't go in, there is plenty of information to read as you walk around!! We came back to Essex and I decided to go thrift shopping-I picked up a lovely black leather horsebit trim belt, a Cacharel scarf, a lovely fitted, soft brown leather jacket and inspired by lovely Silje, a wine coloured lambswool long line cardigan for Autumn!!

Wow! Those are great photos. I have always wanted to go to London. One of these days, I hope to. It's just a matter of time. And money.

I hope you had a fabulous time...it looks like you did!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi beka-yes it was really lovely, thanks so much!

Ida said...

Lovely pictures. It sure looks like amazing quality time with the hubby:)

I watched The Other Boleyn Girl yesterday, and the last few pictures are even more exciting to look at.

I am still in shock that British schools are full on at this time of the year *lol*

Loving the Cacharel scarf!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi Ida-this is a film I want to watch too- well, I've got time now-LOL!! Yes, my 2 boys had their last day at school today, but this timescale is quite normal in England!! Thanks for your lovely comment too!

soph said...

ah looks like you've been having a lovely couple of days out...St Katherines Dock looks like a great place to pass time in the sun! Also loving your car boot finds...It seems the car boots near me only happen once a month, and nearly all on the same weekend, which is a bit difficult for getting around them all! The ones around you seem like they must be often and full of fab finds!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi soph-thanks for your lovely comment, I did have a lovely time!! I suppose I'm lucky that where I live (East London/Essex borders) the boots sales are regular, in summer we have ones on Tuesday, Thursday, saturday and Sundays!

Geri said...

I love this dress! I still can't believe I missed out on such a great sale :(

Sharon Rose said...

Hi geri-thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment, fingers crossed, something like this pops up again soon!!
