Instagram feeds are always filled with a select number of London spots around Christmas- Covent Garden, Peggy Porschen, and The Ivy Chelsea among others, but Mayfair normally does not get the attention it deserves! The area is one of my favourites to shop throughout the year but especially from November, when my favourite Mayfair haunts transform into winter wonderlands.
I picked out one of my favourite simple staples, a striped Dolce Gabbana dress, which I felt would not clash too much with the decoration overdose, and my red Chanel to give the outfit a pop of colour (you know how I can’t resist mixing colours into my outfits😉 Also because I guessed that many spots might incorporate red decorations into their displays heheh. Arax and I walked through gorgeous New Bond Street after shopping at super festive Fortnums, and while the Cartier hadn’t been decorated yet Tiffany & Co had transformed into the sweetest sea-toned store!
After stopping off at Annabels, we took a walk further through Mayfair and if you haven’t yet seen The Connaught during Christmas-time I definitely recommend visiting as they have the most pretty of pretty Christmas displays (a gorgeous coloured Christmas tree)! You’ll also find stunning displays outside shops around the area, and three of my favourite Mayfair foodie spots- Scotts, 34 Mayfair and George- have gotten into the Christmas spirit by decorating too! For a nice coffee and Instagram shot you can’t miss Mount Street Mayfair.
Craving a good coconut matcha and coconut beetroot latte, Arax and I headed over to NAC, probably one of Mayfair’s most beloved brunch spots (once you try the desserts, you’ll be addicted too- trust me), where we froze to death sitting outside while having a very interesting talk about life. Those of you guys seeking a cosy retreat should choose a window table inside where you can get all the people watching you would outdoors… without the biting chill 😉
This classic Dolce Gabbana dress is no longer available however I’ve found a couple of alternatives you might like to shop for;)
