This autumn has been pretty hectic, but at the same time quite rewarding. It has been quite a struggle finding the right balance between school work and all the extra things in life. Since my mid term exams are now just looming around the corner I've finally knuckled down and gotten some work done, although the pile does seem to continuously grow nevertheless. However a couple weeks agro during the half term I decided to take a little break where I headed down to London with Emma...
One of the main focuses of the day was to visit the Victoria Albert Hall which is absolutely glorious in all its ways. A favourite, of course, being the fashion section that spans across many different eras from the Georgian times to 1960s, 70's and more.
I particularly adore the stunning pieces and designs created during the 60s and 70s which can now be reflected in the variety of trends on the High Street. The wonderful fabrications and set designs are so unique and really set it apart from the usual pieces that we assume to be fashionable nowadays.
The colours and prints are my favourite parts, especially when incorporated with various fabrics like wool or lace, with some of the fashion pieces reminding me of the set designs in Downton Abbey.
The works of arts and sculptures within the different centuries were also stunning, from wooden architecture to hand-crafted pottery the range was endless. Even the Victoria Albert Museum itself had amazing architecture, which I highly appreciated.

Of course, I also had to take a little cheeky shot of the Natural History Museum which I unfortunately ran out of time to see. Although now I have one more reason to go back to London, with the others being: visiting Saatchi Gallery + Tate Modern, Bluebird Café, Science Museum and of course shopping around Kingston and Camden.
That's all for now and I hope you've all had a fulfilling Autumn Season too!
Ciao, Jess xx
