London: Adela Mei Separates










Separates: Top & Bottoms, Bag: Madewell, Shoes: old, Sunnies: old

Visiting London was truly a dream come true. I had developed a London obsession after watching Love Actually many years ago and added London to my bucket-list. After lots of research and planning my girl Cynthia and I, booked our dream Europe vacation. With stuffed suitcases and passports in hand we headed to London to begin the holiday. We were lucky enough to experience abnormally hot and sunny weather our entire time in London, and didn't have to wear our wellies not once! We stayed in Soho right off of Oxford Circus, and for any fashionista that's interested in visiting London, stay there! We were a block away from Regents Street which was lined with store after store after store (Zara, Topshop, & Other Stories, Anthropologie, Longchamp & more). It was absolutely ideal and I found way more petite sections in London then here in the states. So jealous! I finally got to experience the heaven that is Boots (similar to an local drugstore/ ulta), Marks & Spencer's (the queen shops there and it's similar to our Macy's) and Liberty London which used to be a textile warehouse turned into incredible store.

 After tons of exploring I finally came face to face with Tower bridge and it was even more amazing than I imagined. Big Ben was way more elaborate than I pictured and Buckingham Palace was gorgeous. After all that walking we did what the Brits do drink and eat! :) We stumbled upon a gems like Coven Market and Carnaby Street filled with delicious restaurants and adorable shops. If you're headed to London, I'd recommend the following restaurants for some good grub.

Visit Jackson & Rye for brunch, the bacon avocado eggs Benedict was unbelievable!
Craving something savory in an awesome outside atmosphere try Whyte & Brown. The sweet potato fries & creamed spinach were my favorites! 
The brownie with caramel ice cream we had left me wanting more. Yum!

and if your sweetooth is as big as mine try Crosstown Donuts. I didn't get a picture but the donuts were phenomenal! :)

Overall I've decided I'm moving! As soon as I can afford it...
