Welcome to a new Fashion Friday! This is one of the first posts of the year shot in London, but with good reason. Since January 5th our stay at home order has meant you can only go outside for groceries or exercise – and outfit shoots do not fit in that list of very small exemptions. However, having biked by the Spitalfields elephants in January I made a plan to go back with Mark during one of our long London walks last month. Sure, it was a bit of stretch but I brought the cute clothes in my backpack and did a quick change for these photos – a stretch but not too much.
To give a bit of background two months ago 21 bronze elephants arrived at Spitalfields Market and were spread around the area. This usually lively market has dozens of brick and mortar stores and during normal times many more vendors selling cloths, jewelry, artisanal food, and home decor. For nearly the last year the market has been closed but there were quite a few people around on the sunny Sunday we visited taking in these elephants. I included a snap of the plaque below describing the Spitalfields elephants formally called the Herd of Hope and bringing attention to the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. You can read more about it from Secret London here and take a look at this snakeskin outfit.

What do you think of these Spitalfields Elephants?
What a great way to bring attention to a worthwhile cause!
The sculptures are so fantastic and I am glad that they included some little ones. Hope that they raise a lot of money.
That scarf is such a nice pop of color and the elephants are too cute!
I really like those Leggins. Do they have a good stretch in them. Looks that way and they look comfortable to, are they?
These are adorable. People are so creative. I so admire creativity.
