My Favorite Places to Shop in London

Hi from London! I've been having the best time. Catching up with my brother, Casey, and his girlfriend, Tara. Good drinks, yummy food (despite my jetlag and therefore lunch at 4:00 pm), and the shopping...ohhh, the shopping. Let's just say I've bought 8 jackets over the past 3 days. No idea where I'm going to store them (let alone wear them in LA). I thought I would share with you my favorite shops in London. 

Shopping on a budget:

River Island- As you guys know, I have been a huge fan of River Island for a while. All my favorite sandals (which are so cheap!) are from here. Last year I was in London and picked up 5 pairs (which I’ve shared on Instagram and you guys have loved). So I reached out and I’ve been collaborating with them ever since. They have some real treasures and no one will believe the price.

Primark- if you want some trendy clothes on a budget this place is for you. The prices are so low, it’s hard to beat. And they have some really nice pieces. The jacket I'm wearing is from Primark and I got it for 25 pounds! (I bought it in navy as well). 

Topshop- okay, so it’s not so cheap. And they have it in the US. But the Topshop in Oxford Circus is so big and there is so much more stock to sort through. If you are a fan of the shop in the US, you will love this one. I won't lie, I tend to get a bit frustrated and walk out (it's so big!). But if you have patience you could find so many cute units. 

Zara- I know this isn’t London specific, but I just had to mention that the (four) Zaras in Oxford Circus are amazing! I find they tend to have different stuff in the Europe shops than in the US ones. I got a jacket and a sweater that I'm obsessed with. 

Pull and Bear - My London photographer, Lydia Collins, told me about this shop. They have the cutest pieces! During our photoshoot I was obsessed with her aviator jacket. She told me about Pull and Bear where she got it. Let's just say I ran there and got it and another one as well. Highly recommend!

Stradivius- Similar to Pull and Bear, they have great jackets and basics. I got two pairs of black boots (for 30 pounds each). Obsessed!

When money ain’t a thing (just kidding- but you want to browse the fancy stuff)

Selfridges- I mean! This department store is unlike any. I could spend all day roaming the floors. And I love the food court on the 4th floor. 

Harrods- This is an obvious one but it’s always fun to visit. Really makes you feel like you're in London. Not to mention the food court is also top notch.

Harvey Nichols- Just like Selfridges, it has all the major designer brands. I do really like the buying in the clothing department.

Okay, by for now. Back to the shops! J xoxo
