I’m definitely in the summer mode after two trips to Paris and coming back to London. That means nothing other than shorts and t-shirt kind of outfit. The weather is quite good in London, only that stupid rain from time to time spoils it. I can’t complain though, living in Notting Hill makes happy no matter what. We took these pictures in the late afternoon yesterday. It was 8 pm and the sun light was breathtaking.
I was asked by The Berkeley to write a tip on what to do in London this summer. As you know I’m a ‘girl from the west’ so definitely what I want to recommend is visiting Notting Hill and Portobello. Especially if you are not from UK, then I’m sure you will be impressed by architecture, people, cute little shops along Portobello Road and great cafes and restaurants. I have a few favourites: swedish restaurant Lisa Portobello, Talk House cafe, Daylesford Organic or Granger & Co. Notting Hill is also a great area to do some shopping, here you will find brands like Sandro, Maje, Matches, Aime (with Isabel Marant clothes and other French brands) or Joseph.
Ps. I’m writing this post while listening and watching Saint Laurent SS15 runway show from Paris almost 10th time. It’s so great! Not only the collection inspired by California in the 70’s , rock music, surf culture and hippie style but also runway soundtrack gets me going!
Ps. 2 Other cool news, we are doing a Yard Sale this Saturday ( 12 July ) together with Shini, Charlie, Peony, Hedvig and Carrie. You can pop in and buy some cool stuff from our wardrobes. It takes place in The Aubaine, Moxhon Street ( nearest station Baker Street). Hope to you guys there! x
