Exploring London | Tate Modern

Back again with another post exploring London, my home city! This time I went along to the Tate Modern with my boyfriend’s parents and brother, for a casual stroll around the Tate and the surrounding area. This part of London always leaves me a bit speechless at its industrial beauty, I love the views and the architecture as it weirdly always makes me excited knowing I live here! It’s great when fulfilling a dream to move somewhere and then remembering that feeling of awe you have over a place

Anyway, the Tate is a place quite hard to describe, it’s an art gallery that is free to visit (in case you didn’t already know) and I can’t decide if I like it. Walking around the work is both inspiring and strange as a lot of it I find hard to understand (guessing that is the point)! However, it was lovely to be there with the family. What I enjoy most though is the Millenium bridge leading up to the Tate building as the views are beautiful. The Tower of London is in the distance and St Paul’s Cathedral opposite, these amazing landmarks will always excite me!

My style and outfit today (and a lot recently) has been a lot more minimalistic. I think it is goodbye girlie pastel colours that I used to adorn my blog posts with and am now opting for a more mature style. I have learnt recently that change is a good thing and i’m trying to embrace it and learn what style suits my body shape again. However I do still love feminine pretty things in girly prints! This shirt dress with tie up belt is perfect for me whilst I find out my personal style again, its a total bargain Dorothy Perkins number, c/o House of Fraser. I can see myself getting a lot of wear from this. For a sunny yet fresh end of summer day, I decided a light jacket and scarf were the ideal additions. What do you think of this dress, outfit and visiting the Tate? Let me know in the comments! 🙂
