What not to wear sightseeing

 We currently have relatives from abroad visiting us in London, so naturally we had to take them on  a long walk, sightseeing, around London. Why I decided to wear a skirt and heels is seriously beyond me. My initial plan, as it was during London Fashion Week, was to sneak off once we got to Covent Garden and spend the rest of the day at Somerset House - But that didn't work out too well. So, I was stuck with my 'lovely' family for the whole day, while being overdressed.

I'm wearing H&M Skirt and t-shirt, thrifted heels and a Max C cardi, as well as my amazing new bag from River Island. I think it was possibly the last nice day in London, for the season, so we were very lucky and happy to see the sun come out.
It was the same day that  the Pope was doing his tour and we decided to walk parts of his route a few hours before he drove by. The atmosphere was incredible: it was so nice to see people from all backgrounds get excited for the Popes visit, and it was also amusing to see my aunt flirt with tons of policemen.
Walking around in heels does get really tiring though.

Above is me, with one of the famous Trafalgar Square Lions (I couldn't get on it though), and below is me with my cousin's wife (who I currently like better than my cousin as she can cook soooo well).

What would have you worn sightseeing? If I didn't have my 'sneaking away' plan, I would have probably worn jeans, with a t-shirt and a pair of sneakers.

Ah, the heels hurt but on the upside you look fabulous!
I'm with you on the choosing of epically unsuitable outfits for sighseeing. When I went to the Tower of London last w/e, I wore a rather short dress on an INCREDIBLY windy day. FAIL. Luckily I have zero modesty so wasn't too bothered!

Lol! How annoying eh!? I wore heels (they were wedges actually) to Paris and after walking around the Louvre for about 4 hours my feet just gave up and died... lesson learnt!

MJ said...

LFW + heels = owwwwwwwwwwwww, as I learnt...

Anything with flats definitely! I almost always wear flats when I go sightseeing.

Tanvi said...

You are so funny. I like how you keeps making jabs at your family and cousins [in a humorous way] ... You do look cute though. I would have work jeans and comfortable shoes too!!!

daisychain said...

Cafe Fashionista said...

You look fabulous in your sightseeing ensemble, Sherin; nevertheless, I hear you on the heels part - they can hurt after awhile!! :P

It is a very cute outfit, although I understand your predicament.

Sarah said...

Oh my gosh your heels are so cute!! And I love the polka dot skirt. You look great!

Isabel said...

Cindy Whitehead said...

I think you look adorable!

Jennifer Fabulous said...

Awww you look adorable but I'm sorry you were in such pain with the heels! I've made that mistake before. Lol.

michelle_ said...

Hi. I am not a regular reader, but I stumbled over here from The Glamorous Grad Student and the whole purpose of this comment is just to tell you that you have really excellent hair.

Kristin said...

A skirt, a tee and comfy sandals are my typical tourist garb!

Sophie@Diary of a Young Designer said...

You look adorable! Tho, you are my hero for walking around in those shoes for sooooo long!


Rachel said...

You look so pretty, Sherin! I'm really loving that polka dot skirt. It looks you had a fun time, even if your sneaking away plan didn't work out!

Harriet said...

I love your sightseeing outfit! Maybe not practical, but certainly stylish!

I know it doesn't help, but at least you looked great. For whatever reason I do that too. Whenever people come to visit I always end up in heels at the most overcrowded tourist spots wishing that I wore flats.

Winnie said...

I always wear my converse for siteseeing, just because I know would be walking for the longest time! Glad you had fun with your family!

Tasha said...

Heels definitely aren't the most comfortable things to wear but you do look amazing!
