I love a good London trip now and again. There is something so special about the buzz the city gives off and gets this northern girl rather excitable.
This time my trip to London was crazy and super special as I was a guest on Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch. I was showcasing a truck load of yummy iced teas to a panel of celebrities including the legend that is Bryan Adams.
The way you can hop on a tube, hop on a bus, hop on a rent a bike to travel the city with the wind in your hair and take in our capitals most amazing is what life is all about.
I have a few more trips planned down in the big smoke and I am dying to cock my leg over a Boris Bike and sail through the parks that we have right on our doorstep. I don’t think I am brave enough to brave the big the roads of London as the traffic is crazy and I would most definitely fall off and crash into numerous cars, cabs and innocent pedestrians.
Up north there seems to be a fair amount of cycle paths kicking about so I do feel a touch safer. I really want to brave the big bad world on a bike next time I visit London this summer.
With the Tour De Yorkshire heading through my town in May and the Tour De France in full force as we speak I thought what better way than to grab a few snaps in a bike filled sunny London town to showcase my new favourite outfit.
This little number is from one of my go to stores, Dahlia, and is the most comfiest things to pop on and explore the capital. I teamed this babeing dress with a straw hat and my trusty tan saddle bag and a pair of sparkly gold flats.
The cotton smock and jersey top let you swish around without getting too hot and sweaty. The sleeves are to die for and Silvia* really will get a lot of wear in the next few months. Not to mention this style hides a good old food baby too.
If you want to join in my bike adventure and cycle round your beautiful surroundings this summer, get fit or even go on a Pokemon hunt then make sure you enter this Halfords competition to be in a chance to win a Boardman SLR bike of your own. Halfords are one of our most favourite sponsors here on The Tea Bee so go over and show them some love.
You know you want to.
Love Carli x
*This is a sponsored post but I really can’t wait to get myself on a bike this season and go explore our wonderful world.
