Today Luke and I spent the evening in Shoreditch in London, so I thought I would combine a ‘Today I’m wearing…’ post with a bit of info on what we got up to, as I think it’s nice to get recommendations of places to go. I’m wearing a dress from New Look which I bought a few days ago in their sale for £10, I was pretty chuffed as I think this dress is really sweet and summery (similar here from Next). I’m also wearing the Regal Bucket Bag from Paul Costelloe which is in the sale at £39.99, and some Topshop sandals (similar from New Look here for just £7). I’m also carrying my denim jacket from Urban Outfitters. My sunglasses are Versace.
We had a really great time in Shoreditch, it’s such a fun, quirky area of London and I love people watching because there are so many unique styles. We started out getting a bite to eat at The Orange Buffalo, which Luke (who is standing in front of Orange Buffalo in this picture) assured me do the most amazing buffalo wings. And he was right… they were soooo good! They come with optional blue cheese dip and celery sticks, which I highly recommend. I had the original ones which are the mildest ones (we couldn’t help but giggle at someone who assured the lady serving the food that he could handle the hottest wings, and then ended up coughing and spluttering all over the place because he clearly couldn’t handle it). We then went to Big Chill for a drink – it was okay and I had a nice glass of Pimm’s, but everyone was standing outside and there wasn’t much room – it was a bit too crowded for my liking.
Then it was on to our next watering hole. We ended up meandering towards Old Street and found this awesome bar/restaurant called the The Jones Family Project on Great Eastern Street. This was such a nice place. It was cute and quirky inside with twinkling fairy lights (my picture doesn’t do it justice).
The staff were really nice and attentive, and the cocktails were really good (I lurve a cocktail or three). I had my facvourite, a French Martini first, and then I had their ‘Jones Apple Pie’ cocktail I think it’s called, which as the name suggests, is quite apple-y and had a bit of cinnamon in. Yum. It wasn’t too expensive – some of the cocktails like my French Martini were in the Happy Hour menu so that was £6, and then my other cocktail was £8 I think, so not too pricey by London standards. This place also has a restaurant downstairs which looked really nice – if their bar snacks are anything to go by, it will be awesome.
