Third time lucky, the lovely Candy Pop and I finally managed to make it to the Columbia Road flower market last Sunday. It was the perfect time of year to go as the stalls were laden with Peonies and Hydrangeas - my favourite flowers. So much prettiness and colour everywhere. And so many people! I wasn't quite prepared for the crowds - it made it rather challenging to get any pictures that were in focus! But it was fabulous all the same.
After the craziness of the crowds and a potter round the lovely shops we headed to a quiet side street for a few outfit shots. The window boxes were so pretty - this is the kind of street I'd love to live in.....well a girl can dream!
A trip to London wouldn't be complete without a spot of shopping, now would it? So, after a much needed pit stop for lunch at Byron, we headed to Orla Kiely in Covent Garden and they happened to have a sale on....everything is just so delicious I wanted it all! But I satisfied myself with this gorgeous number. Still can't quite believe it :)
And just down the road on Monmouth Street is a fabulous little shop called Pop Boutique stacked to the rafters with vintage goodness. I tried on a dress with a fabulous 60s print, but sadly it didn't fit me. On the way out, I spotted this doggy in the window - I've been after one of these for ages (ever since I saw Shevie's sitting proudly on the Fine and Dandy counter top), so he just had to come home with me. I could hardly contain myself ;) And then it was on to a very special shop for the lovely Candy Pop's mission - but I'll leave her to tell that tale. All in all, a most fabulous day!
