Day two of our London adventures was what the whole trip was centered around: Taylor Swift’s RED Tour! You may recall that I saw Taylor’s tour three times last year. Layna and I even decided a spur of the moment trip to see (what we thought would be the last) show in Nashville.
I remember after that last concert I commented on one of Layna’s Instagram pictures of a throwback of the concert joking we should go to London to see her in February. Little did we know…
Since the concert wasn’t until 6:30pm we wanted to do as much more sight seeing as we could! We ate breakfast in swings, then ventured to find Buckingham Palace! First up we came across the Canadian Gates,
We were too late to see the changing of the guards, but we made sure to take lots of pictures!
After the Palace we headed back towards Big Ben and came across Westminster Abbey.
Every show Taylor has a secret song on the b-stage and for the last night in London it was “Long Live” from her album Speak Now. It could not have been a more perfect song choice and summed up our trip and the end of the Red Tour so well.
Each night in London (she played 5 shows total) she also had a surprise guest. We were secretly hoping it’d be Ed Sheeran (since he lives in London), but since he was the surprise guest the first night in London (and later that week in Germany) I knew chances weren’t very high for that. It turned out to be Ellie Goulding! She was my second choice so I was happy They sang her new song “Burn” and it was amazing. And just like that the show was over. I can now say that will be the last RED Tour I see (unless we somehow miraculously win a trip to Asia when she wraps up the tour there this summer ). Let’s take a trip down memory lane with all our different concert outfits shall we…
trouble outfits//”Taylor” inspired look//cat shirt//”22″ outfit
I can say that we had some more um, embarrassing, outfit ideas to try to get us Club Red but we opted out of those. I sometimes wonder what would’ve happened had we gone for those looks… Fact: I actually got my “not a lot going on at the moment” shirt made for Halloween, but never ended up wearing it since the party got cancelled. I’m glad I got a chance to wear it
It was SO windy and chilly that day, hence my messy hair and unpleasant face. Soon after we made our way to back to hotel, checked out, rode the tube one final time to the airport, and headed home. While I was ready to get back to the comforts of home, it was hard to say goodbye to such a wonderful city. Thanks again to Keds for making this trip happen. It was literally a dream come true. I hope to see you again London<3
