I can't say I love London fashion.  It's loud and showy and rather obnoxious.  But I do love that people here don't give a crap what anyone thinks.  I've seen a lady completely decked out in bright orange, girls with the most ridiculous platform shoes, guys with the most ridiculous platform shoes and a full velvet suit.  No one even bats an eyelid.

It's been one of the best things about moving to London.  You don't feel like you have to be on top of your fashion game and you definitely won't stand out in a crowd, no matter how much orange you wear.  No one cares.  

I have noticed myself wanting to be less showy and much more practical and simple with my wardrobe choices.  I've become obsessed with the classics - blue skinny jeans, white sneakers, the perfect t-shirt, black pumps, a crisp white shirt.  Of course it's fun to splash out on a bright pink floral lace skirt or a fluffy leopard print jumper once in a while, but I'd like to think that my style has evolved past being trendy to something a bit more sophisticated.
