London is a place that I've discovered where individual style is bold, fresh and nonchalant. Personalities shine and anything goes. Street style here surprises me but wows me as well.

Back home in Australia, I would rarely have been seen in sneakers and jeans let alone a skirt and sneakers and now living on the other side of the world, I've embraced these pairings whole-heartedly. I'm not sure if it's the weather in the UK or the fact that I went on a shopping frenzy during my recent holiday in America where I convinced myself that all my purchases were a bargain because: (1) I made them during Thanksgiving/Black Friday sales and (2) the AUD/USD exchange rate is better than the AUD/GBP exchange rate so I was getting more bang for my buck.

Totally justified.
