There aren’t many advantages of living in Wimbledon; it’s a trek to central London, most people are aged 60 + and the nightlife is almost as dead as back in Kenilworth. But one reason why I am glad I moved to South West London is because I am so close to Chelsea – one of my favourite places in the city. So I spent Sunday doing what I do best, shopping, eating and acting as if I belong on Made in Chelsea.
My OOTD consisted of the sparkliest of headbands from Zara, a gingham dress from Brandy Melville, a grey faux fur jacket from Topshop, knee high H&M boots and a Kate Spade bag. I was channelling some serious Blair Waldorf vibes in this outfit. I really felt the part whilst I was walking down the Kings Road – fake it till you make it, right?
I firstly went to Bluebird cafe, a place I have always really wanted to visit as I have heard such good reviews (and it’s very Instagram friendly). The waiter was a bit shocked when I said I just wanted a table for one but it didn’t kill my positive spirit, I was perfectly happy in my own company
even with the numerous cute couples around me. I sat outside under pretty fairy lights, decorations and the warmest heater in the world, all cuddled in a blanket. Despite the fact I am supposed to be practising veganism at the moment, I couldn’t not go for the avocado and poached eggs on sourdough bread because my inner white girl has missed it so much over the past few months. I’m not sure if it was so good because I haven’t had a proper meal in a while or because it was just that good. Although it was a pretty expensive brunch, I was happy to have spent the money because of my overall experience. The ambience was lovely, the food was great and the staff were super accommodating (despite getting slightly judged for being on my own!)
I spent the second part of my day shopping on the Kings Road, a notoriously expensive street. Granted, I could only afford to go into about 3 of the shops down there but I still had a lot of fun window shopping and getting inspiration from high end fashion. I also wanted to get some Christmas decor inspiration because it’s already the 5th and I have nothing up! I first went into Anthropologie, a super cute shop that sells shabby chic clothing and home accessories. They had a ton of gorgeous Christmas decorations, none of which I could afford but it did give me some ideas as to what I can do with my room – I think i’m going to go for the rustic look as that seems to be everywhere this year.
I will definitely have a Christmas decor post up soon!
I have also decided to do a little Christmas blogmas. Of course I was far too unorganised to do the generic blogmas throughout all of December so instead I am going to do ’12 days of Christmas’ from the 15th to the 26th!
Hugs and wishes,
