Claribel’s Closet: London 2017

Hey, pals. I’ve been wanting to document my travel wardrobe for some time now and after I got 12 billion questions about my red dress from London, I decided now was a good time to start. Below are all my outfits for the 2017 London Book Fair along with links and my thoughts on each piece! Hope you enjoy and please let me know in the comments if you have any questions โค

I wore this outfit for my first night out and I really loved it. The boots are super comfy and I really like the lace up design in the back. I’ve worn them since on a night where I walked a lot and had no pain issues. The open-back sweater is an older piece from Charlotte Russe, so I am not sure if it’s still available but I found another cute option that’s similar and included the link below. The phone case I actually didn’t order but it came with another case I bought by accident (lol oops.) It’s cute though, especially if you’re a fan of unicorns like me ๐Ÿ™‚

On the first day of the fair, I opted for this dark green vintage style swing dress. I spoke on a panel that day (which happened to be on an ALL PINK stage) so I wanted to offset my hair with a darker shade. This dress fits well/true to size. It’s especially flattering if you have a bigger bust, and it was definitely comfortable. Next time I wear it, I’ll have my hair up to show off the high collar. My shoes are originally from Modcloth but I purchased them a few years ago so I provided a different link below. This cellphone case is one of my favorites, both for the super cute pom-pom and because it doubles as a mirror.

I love the print on this dress but I wish the sleeves were 3/4 instead of capped. floral1Not because I don’t love cap sleeves because I do! But because the cut on this particular dress just wasn’t working for me. I have small arms, so I was sort of swimming in the sleeves but if your arms are on the bigger side this might work for you. I matched the dress with a pink cardigan and it was pretty cute.

 

My favorite dress of the trip! Comfortable, nice cut and flattering. I got tons of compliments with this outfit. The dress comes with a black belt which I didn’t use because it’s basic af and I hate belting my dresses. I spent several hours on my feet and the shoes gave me no issues. They are a little hard to buckle but besides that I recommend these if you’re in the market for a cute kitten heel. They also have a bunch of cute color options so I might get another pair.
