Ultimate Summer Fashion Wishlist, Show Studio Internship

Urbanity Blog x A Couple of Photos

In just a couple of days, I am moving to London for 2 months for an editorial internship at Show Studio. I am so excited to work with such an innovative and exciting company, but I’m also nervous because, its high, and, well, what the hell am I going to wear! A (poor student) girl can dream…so what better than a wishlist? Here I’ve pulled together a collection of clothes, shoes and accessories ready for a Summer in London!

N.B. If you’re thinking – wait, I though Ruth had short ice blonde hair not long curly pink hair – this is an old photo from August 2016 by Jasmin Bauer from A Couple of Photos, it was the most summery blog photo I could find! I hope you enjoy this post!
