The Look: London Calling

Fingers: Numb. Toes: Numb. Ears: Numb.

Although I love my tropical Australian habitat, England I am happy to see you! Today I'm visiting my countries capital in some cold-weather trends I've been Pinning for far too long...

Cape: Primark
Boots: ASOS (Shop here)
Gloves: Vintage
Bangle: The Peach Box (Shop here)*

'You sound like yar from Landan!', says every single Australian person ever.
**Rolls eyes**

'Actually...erm I'm from the other side of the country.' Gotta love those crazy Bruce's and Sheilas!

I've been acting as a British tour guide to my Australian other half (who doesn't understand socks- bless him) and earlier this week we hit the big smoke of London town!

I think that nothing really beats London when it comes to England; you have the Medieval architecture of 'The Tower of London', the bustling political district and the sheer beauty of Westminster Abbey.

The highlight of the day had to be an evening trip on The London Eye. The city scape really does look like a twinkling metropolis after dark! Plus: Who is totally over their fear of heights? **Slyly raises hand**

I'm going to sound like the craziest, whiniest, ungrateful fashionista here, but I really miss Winter dressing. Although all of my limbs may be suffering from questionable frost bite, at least I get to be creative with my wardrobe! There's something really cool about layering different shapes and textures. Hey; there's only so many ways you can style denim shorts!

Today I layered up in a chunky knit jumper and a cosy Primarni cape! I've been wanting to try out this seasons cape obsession for so long now- so England is the perfect, albeit frosty, excuse.

However, my favorite part of my look has to be my beautiful new black leather and rose gold Marc Bale watch, courtesy of The Peach Box. It goes perfectly with the its-so-pretty-i-could-die 'Roman Empress Bangle' in rose gold. If you want your own arm party, you can get 15% off all product from The Peach Box using the code 'mb-thedailyluxe'.

Don't say I never spoil you! The code expires the end of Jan, so get shopping!

In the mean time, I'll do my best not to transform into an icicle.
