My sister needed to gather some inspiration for her art homework so we took a little trip to the National Portrait Gallery. The weather in London has been pretty unpredictable as of late so I had to dress myself appropriately for the weather as well as taking into consideration the amount of walking we'd be doing.
I opted for a comfy pair of ripped jeans from Topshop and smartened the look up with a loose, thin shirt. I love the combination of a ripped jean with a blouse or buttoned shirt; I think it makes for an effortless go-to for day to day wear that can easily be glammed up with a strappy heeled sandal. Underneath I wore a black lace bralette for comfort and a little extra bit of detail.
For my feet I chose a pair of burgundy slippers to compliment the ripped jeans and to also ensure that I could last the day strolling around the West end.
Whilst this is strictly an outfit post, I can't not include a few photos of some of my favourite paintings from the gallery.

After, Lily and I ate at one of our favourite spots, Princi, in Soho. It's renowned for its bakery as well as its pizzas. I am OBSESSED with their courgette fritte and the pizzas are sizeable enough to share. I'd highly recommend it if you're looking for a reasonably priced lunch spot!
