{Fashion Monday} A Day out on the Thames 

The Thames River is the second longest river in the United Kingdom after Severn but the longest in England. It runs through the southern part of England but most notably in London.


It’s Sunday and I have only one item on my agenda for the day, go cruising on the River Thames with my sister. Nothing else was on the cards, just that one item but knowing my sister there would be more. And more there was, we managed to finish the cruise on the Thames and head off to Oxford Street for some shopping. But prior to all this happening I needed to figure out what to wear to London. As you know I am an advocate for first dressing comfortably and style comes second. Where you can achieve both effortlessly then go for it, fashion fits everyone.

A Day out on the Thames

A Day out on the Thames 

The most comfortable items of clothing I own outside my pajamas has to be skinny jeans. I feel you can never go wrong with dressing skinny jeans as I feel they go with almost everything. Personally when in doubt about outfits I go black, as you can never go wrong with black. Once I have chosen the black items, I think of items that I want to pair with that. For the Day out on the Thames, I opted for blue skinny jeans, black long-sleeved top, pink long cardigan and pink canvas.

What I love about this simple outfit is how comfortable and warm it is. I paired this outfit is a leather jacket and heavy scarf but rarely had them on because I was feeling warm enough. This outfit is one that I have replicated many times, with many colours and has not failed me yet. You could go all out with this outfit and pair with ankle boots instead of canvas. You could remove the leather jacket and pair with a mac jacket or long belted coat, possibilities are endless.

    That look really suits you. I visited London in the very late 80s and saw the Thames and have wanted to go back ever since.

    I agree with you, for me comfort comes before style but you achieved both effortlessly. Love those shoes, and they look so comfortable: perfect for walking around the city.

    Going down the river Thames sounds wonderful. We are headed over this summer and can’t wait to see all the sites. Dream come true.

  • You never know what kind of weather you will get in London. Better safe than sorry with a cute sweater!

  • David E

    Ah a day out on the Thames looks lovely. Hope you had a good time with your sister.

  • We live very close to London and the Thames runs through our local town, I have had many walks along the Thames, but have never been on a cruise on the Thames. Which is strange as we both would love this x

  • Your outfit is perfect for a day out on the Thames! x

  • I love going home and visiting London now! I admit though, I guess because I lived there, I never thought to go on the Thames cruise as it seemed something for Tourists (not in any kind of bad way) just money-wise as a student there. Next time I go back, I’ll have to add it to my to-do list.

    I have never been to London but this would be something I’d love to visit. A lot of period books I read talk about how the Thames was so bad back in the old days with it being a place to dump bodies! Yikes! Watching shows set in London really makes me want to visit too!

  • Annemarie LeBlanc

    I would love to visit London again sometime. It is such a beautiful and romantic city. Next time I visit I will have to ask my cousin who lives there to take me on a tour on the Thames. BTW, I love your outfit. I agree with you that the basic jeans and black blouse can be mixed and matched with different jackets and shoes and still turn out looking chic.

  • Oo I’d love to do this! London is fabulous–I love the history of it! Your outfit is great too.

  • ThatgirlSue

    I loved London when I visited, so busy but full of culture

  • Cruising is always a great way to explore the city. The Thames could really give you a refreshing glimpse of London’s main attractions.

  • Blair Villanueva

    A good place to hangout with family and friends, or with a good book if you are solo. Just don’t forget your camera to snap those beautiful scenery.

  • Robin Rue

    That sounds like such a cool place to hang out. My sister just got back from London and raved about it there.

  • What a cute outfit! Those shoes are so cute, I’ve been really into pink/rose gold sneakers and flats lately. .I love that they go with every outfit!
