So as you know, Adam and I swapped out our St. Ives holiday this year (twice due to bad weather) and went to London for a mini city break instead. We stayed in The Washington Mayfair hotel, purely for the location and the cheaper price compared to other hotels, and it was nice. Despite having a room next to the main road, making it noisy, it was a nice room and hotel in general. It was only a 7-10 minute walk from Mount Street and New Bond Street, which was exactly what we wanted as we love looking in all of the designer boutiques. We hit up Saint Laurent, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Burberry, Celine, and more, enjoying all the new collections, and we also headed to Selfridges on the second day. So this is a little mini update and travel post, including all of my photos from London and new purchases! I of course couldn’t come home empty handed, could I? Ha ha.
Beautiful views in Mayfair, this is on Mount Street where my favourite Celine boutique is!
The Anthracite Jimmy Choo Cruz Boots that I fell in love with and am trying to save for!
Two photos from inside Burberry on New Bond Street. It’s a much smaller boutique compared to the flagship on Regent Street, but that’s why I love it! I love the new decor inside.
This is the scarf that Adam and I bought to share. It’s the oversized cashmere check in Mid Camel and it’s stunning! We were looking for a new scarf and after trying on lots of colours, we finally decided on this one as it suits us both! You can buy it here.
Also, if you do go into that Burberry, go downstairs to the graffiti room and see if you can spot my Instagram handle @LornaRaindrops on the walls! I left two of them in red and black!
The mens boots in Saint Laurent. Part of an obsession of mine. I just love boots!
This beautiful building is not too far from Selfridges!
In the hotel bar, waiting for some food!
On Mount Street there was a stunning purple McLaren! I love seeing the fancy cars!
Fancy chocolates in the confectionery area of Selfridges!
A pretty Autumn floral display as well.
I may have purchased something in Celine…
Even their water bottles are fancy!
Here she is… My new Celine Nano Luggage in Glazed Nut! I had seen this beautiful bag online for months and fell in love. I hadn’t expected to get it when I was there, and actually spent way more than I had intended to, but after an hour in the boutique, looking at all the different colours, I couldn’t help it. I had to bring her home with me and she was the last one in the store! What do you think?
Some Celine wallets with a chain that Adam was looking at.
Now these boots are men’s, both from Celine, but I adore them! I even considered getting a pair as they go down to my size… I’m trying to save, ha ha. There’s so much I want. Aren’t those two jackets above amazing too? Leather is Saint Laurent and the bomber is Celine.
My shopping bags! The Selfridges contained Godiva chocolate!
The breakfast area in our hotel was really pretty too! So that rounds up the London trip! You can also see the London shopping highlight circle on my Instagram for lots of videos as well, including footage from the shops and to see all the new pieces! Click here for that. Lorna xx.
