Then, after lunch, we were allowed to do some shopping as long as we went with two friends. So Charlie and Amy Jinn and I wandered about. Mostly we looked in shop windows at the displays of beautiful outfits for spring. We didn't buy much because things are so expensive, but it was such fun to look! Then we splurged on a fancy cream tea at The Wolseley, which was the most grown-up thing EVER. The Wolseley is a cafe in Piccadilly Street, Mayfair. It's huge and grand:
(That's not my picture; it belongs to the people who designed the cafe's decor, PBH Shopfitters. They did a splendid job!) We had bacon butties (those are sandwiches with butter, brown sauce, and lots of BACON!!!), cranberry scones with jam and cream, and a lovely pot of tea, and we pretended we were grown-up ladies. :)
On Saturday evening we all went to see the musical version of Matilda in the West End. We didn't get back to Bruton until after 1:30 in the morning, can you imagine it?! Oh, but it was the best day ever. We had such fun in the city! I love London!
As you can imagine, after all that window-shopping, I came back full of ideas for outfits. I wanted to commemorate our wonderful day with one inspired by London itself. I've asked my lovely friend Rebecca, who is from London herself, to model it. Can you see the Union flag made of words on the shirt? I like the way it peeks out under the jacket, but you still know what it is. I think sometimes it's better to hint at something than put it on grand display; what do you think?
