London: A fashion lover does Christmas Part 3, Brick Lane and some sights...

Hello lovelies!

Can I start by saying that if you celebrate Christmas, happy Christmas Eve!!!

This is the final post in my London series, and probably my last until the festivities are over, but I've got some amazing street art to show you and some lovely sights and Christmas trees!

Brick Lane and Spitalfields Market...

Heading east, early on a Saturday morning, I had to show my Mister Brick Lane.  The street art is absolutely phenomenal, so if you've never been, be sure to take a visit!  I visited Brick Lane for the first time in June (here) and was blown away by how talented the street artists are.  Lots of the art was different this time-but equally impressive.  It's definitely worth a look!  But don't take my word for it...

Trying to fit in...Oufit choice, Michael Kors trench (Flannels), Burberry scarf (vintage), Vivienne Westwood bag (Selfridges), Armani jeans (Flannels), Boots (Primark-really old!), Umbrella (H 'n' M)

Spitalfields Market is just a stone's throw away from Brick Lane, and features lots of art and handmade goods on a Saturday morning.  I could spend hours wandering around looking at the vintage clothes and pictures and chatting to the stall holders.  I paid another visit to Edwyn UK especially, to hunt out a Christmas bandana for my boy...I think you'll agree that he looks very handsome...

I also loved the addition of the pop up Chanel boutique, which looked really Christmassy...a Coco lover's dream...

Beautiful buildings, Christmas trees and London Bridge...

Passing the Gherkin on the bus, I knew we weren't too far away from the buildings that make London's skyline look amazing, so from our trip to Spitalfields, we took a little wander to see what we could see.  Having never really visited London as a tourist, my Mister was really excited to see the beautiful architecture up close and personal.  I've seen the view from the Shard in a previous London trip, but it's equally impressive seeing it all from the ground, especially with the addition of some beautiful trees!

I had an amazing time exploring London with my Mister and came away feeling really festive.  If you visit London my best advice would be to plan your days to make sure you see everything you want to see, but this time in our case, wandering off the beaten track made our trip even more of an adventure!

Thanks for reading and have a wonderful Christmas from my Mister...

...and from me!
