Greenwich Outfit of the Day (OOTD)

Ayup chucks! I hope you like photos, because there are plenty in this post!

So almost 2 weeks ago, I woke up in Hoxton at a friends house to a lovely sunny day in London. This seemed like the perfect excuse to drag my little brother around this wonderful city. Of course it took a little bribing with a delicious breakfast in Stratford first...





After filling up on a greasy spoon brekkie, we hopped on the DLR (then had to hop off and back on to another one) towards Greenwich. I'd only been to this part of London once, on a date with a boy who has since broke my heart, so it was a little strange to be back, but I was glad to make some different memories in this beautiful area of the City.

Before we go much further, I think it's about time I showed you what I wore!





Yes, I went for the obvious choice of stripes! You didn't think I'd go to maritime central and not wear something nautical, did you? These funky jeans are from Primark. I love Primark jeans as they seem to be the best fit for me. As it was the weekend, and it was bright and sunny out, I was feeling the need for some colourful comfy trainers. Remember these? These Nike's feature some pretty fab colours which are always fun to mix and match with different items. The navy and the white laces go perfectly with the stripey jeans. Then there's the aquamarine, which I matched with the embroidery on my gypsy top from Topshop, a cardigan I nicked from me Nan, and my sunnies, also from Primark.





My trainers also have a hint of pink, so I knew exactly which accessories to wear. My pink parrot necklace was a present from a work friend and my pink anchor brooch was another present, this time from my Parents for Christmas. Finally, my trusty stripey rucksack (similar here) from Accessorize and navy denim jacket from Uniqlo finish the look. I'm rather proud of this one. Everything seemed to come together perfectly.

Right, so back to our big day out! We got off at Cutty Sark as I wanted to take my brother down and through the slightly spooky foot tunnel. It's kind of weird to be walking right underneath the river!










I wouldn't like to be down there alone, late at night. During the day it's really rather exciting though! We came out the other side right next to the Cutty Sark, which is absolutely huge, and breathtaking, especially for a sailor/pirate wannabe, such as myself (argh!). It was quite late in the day, but we just about had enough time for a quick visit to the Old Royal Naval College where we got to play admiral dress up!













Unfortunately the National Maritime Museum had closed for the day by the time we got to it. The sun was setting quite quickly, so we made a quick dash to the top of Greenwich Park, up by the Observatory to get some quick snaps. It's such an amazing view from up there! I'm pretty happy with the photos I managed to take. I think I'm getting slightly better at using my new camera with each time I take it out.







It was quite the hike to the top, but we'd spotted the Meantime Brewery on our way to the park, so headed back down there for a nice refreshing pint. I do love Meantime. We finished our sibling day out with Heathers. My brother had never seen it, but it's ok, he's a fan now!

If you haven't checked out Greenwich yet, I recommend you do, especially as the weather is starting to get nicer. We didn't even get to visit the market, and there is also a Picturehouse cinema too!

Thanks for reading :)

Haha love how you two dressed up as captains- those striped jeans went super well with that look! ;) I love dressing up in theme to where I'm going. It makes the whole event a little more special and quirky. And those ships are so beautiful. I've never been sailing but I have such a romantic image of it. Just me, the white sails, and the open sea. Oh, and something striped on ;)

The stripes just had to be done. I'm off to Paris in a few days, very tempted to just pack all my striped jumpers!! Dressing with a theme makes it easier to piece items together from my ever growing wardrobe.
