London has officially turned golden. The air is crispy, the days are getting shorter and there is that magic glow that the mist brings when it mixes with the warm autumnal colors.
Even though this season brings a lot of rain, there is still so much magic in it. We took advantage of a break from the rain and went for a walk in one of the most beautiful areas of London: Notting Hill. Because Notting Hill is not just the busy vibrant market, it is so much more and trust me, getting lost in its residential streets is the best thing that can happen to you.
For a walk in these elegant streets my little duo wore outfits that were super on point: a classy mix of greys and white tones that matched beautifully with the immaculate facades of Notting Hill. Catherine and Harvey’s outfits are from “Il Gufo”, one of my favorite Italian brands: their range is so stunning and a true reflection of my style. There isn’t a single piece of their collection that I wouldn’t buy.
If you know me, you know that I love a traditional, elegant looks for them. However, I want them to be comfortable and cozy too. Il Gufo delivers excellently on both points.
For Catherine I chose a pair of white culotte, they are so chic and warm thanks to the technowool material; they go beautifully with the Tricot jumper with ruffles and the Bouclé wool overcoat with sequins is the perfect finishing touch to a WOW look.
Her ballerina flats are so cute and she is obsessed with them: I surely don’t blame her; in fact I wish that they came in my size as well!
Harvey is a true British man with his checked cotton blazer paired with the matching gilet and the softest white shirt for the ultimate dandy look. To complete the outfit I picked the Technowool trousers in grey, he is so adorable with this outfit: I couldn’t stop kissing him.
Going back to the Notting Hill topic, I have some good suggestion for you; as I told you, there is much more than Portobello Market to explore. I will share a list of my favorite spots for pictures with you so that when you come to London you’ll know where to head to.
- The Travel Book Co is the book shop where Julia and Hugh feel in love in the famous Notting Hill movie.
- Opposite Notting Hill Gate Tube station you will find the prettiest street, lined with colourful houses, it’s is called Hillgate Place: it’s honestly a pastel heaven!
- If you fancy a coffee break then you’ll be spoilt for choice: Biscuiteers, Farm Girl cafe and the Hummingbird bakery are my absolute favourites at the moment.
- Other streets you want to check out are Westbourne Grove and Ledbury Road, however don’t worry too much. Notting Hill is so pretty you’ll love every corner of it and, if you’re lucky, you will spot some adorable vintage cars too!
