I'll take a bruise, I know you're worth it

my outfit: shirt and sunglasses H&M, shorts and bag Topshop, socks and shoes Primark
my sister: playsuit Topshop, bag Longchamp, sunglasses Ray-Ban

My sister and I went to the British Museum on Friday which was totally amazing. The best part of the museum for me are the Ancient Egypt galleries. Ancient Egypt has always been my favourite history topic to learn about and the British Museum holds some of the most beautiful items from Ancient Egypt such as the Rosetta Stone. Also, they have several galleries dedicated to mummies which are my favourite galleries in the whole museum.
When I was wearing this outfit, I was really scared of getting tan lines from the socks but luckily, I don't have any dodgy tan lines on my legs THANK GOD!
Oh and if you don't live in London, you're probably wondering why the hell is there a giant elephant? WELL, there is currently an elephant parade in London where there are 258 decorated elephants scattered all over the city. I love this idea, the whole point of the elephants is to raise money to save the endangered Asian elephant as the decorated elephants are currently up for auction and all the proceeds will go to charity. The elephant that you can see in my picture is called Cloudia and you can sign a petition to help save the elephants here.

The last picture is of my sister, check her tattoo, pretty awesome no?
