London Travel Guide

Here are a few photos from my recent trip to London. I made sure to pack two of my favorite brooches, which happen to be crowns. I found the pearl crown years ago, while I was still in high school, at a Dallas antiques mall... and the golden Kenneth Jay Lane crown is a recent eBay find! Luckily, for our UK trip, the sun was out and everything was in full bloom! We started in London and took the train up to Edinburgh and drove back down through the Lake District where we got to explore charming little towns sprinkled in between fields of yellow flowers. My favorite day was spent visiting Beatrix Potter's country home in Hill Top. See a list of my favorite highlights below.

Sketch // 9 Conduit Street, Mayfair

That infamous pink room! Be sure to make your high tea reservation ahead of time.

Farm Girl // 59A Portobello Road

My favorite brunch spot by far, a must try is their rose lattes and berry pancakes.

Harrods // 87-135 Brompton Road, Knightsbridge

A historical shopping mall, be sure to get high tea on the top floor!

Selfridges // 400 Oxford Street, Marylebone

Another famous shopping mall, fun for window shopping.

V&A Museum // Cromwell Road, Knightsbridge

A gorgeously curated museum that always features a beautiful fashion exhibit.

Cahoots // 13 Kingly Court, Carnaby

A hidden speak easy style cocktail bar that used to be a train station.

Charleston Charm

I spent last weekend exploring downtown Charleston in my new favorite gladiator sandals from Cecelia. The city stole my heart and I am already planning my next trip back! Now onto what’s most important; the food! I thought I would share a few of my favorite places to grab meals and sweets.

Parlour Deluxe

For homemade root beer floats, marshmallow fluff on top of ice cream and pimento cheese sandwiches.

Cannon Green

For the best local and seasonal meal you will ever have, save room for dessert!

Zero George

For deviled eggs and cocktails in a charming setting. This is also Cannon Green's sister restaurant.

Sugar Bakeshop

For lemon curd, vanilla blueberry cupcakes and other delectable desserts!

Happy Travels!
