A few weeks ago I was contacted by La Redoute as they wanted me to bring their effortless French style to Shoreditch. I picked out a navy blue classic trench coat, as I always love a simple trench. They keep you warm (but not too warm), if it rains they keep you dry and they are always fun to style up.
This navy blue trench is great as it has so many beautiful details. It is double breasted with leather buckles, horn buttons, collar stand and made of water repellent cotton twill. It is great quality and a great fit too! It costs less than £100 but it has the look of a high end raincoat.
I always think navy blue and hot pink look great together, so I couldn’t resist teaming this coat with my MCM Worldwide Handbag and Cleo Ferin Mercury silk scarf. I always feel good when I wear a splash of pink!
I figured since La Redoute is French, it might be fun to wear some other French brands, give more outfit a more European look! My scarf is by Parisian-born Cleo Ferin Mercury and my necklace and brooch are both by Chanel. I love a little French fashion, I don’t look as chic as the French girls when I wear it, but I love it all the same!
Where is it all from?

Columbia Road Flower Market
Columbia Road flower market is probably one of the most beautiful sights of London. This quaint road full of terrace houses and shops becomes a huge flower market each Sunday Morning. You can buy your weekly flowers here, pop inside shops such as artist Rob Ryan’s RyanTown or pre-owned designer fashion from Future Vintage.
Dum Dum Donutterie
These bad boys are so bad they are good! They are baked rather than friend, they come in a whole array of amazing flavours like Creme Brûlée, Strawberry Puree Fondant and Pistachio & Pistachio. While they aren’t healthy, nor good for you, they are baked and a lot better for you than a regular donut. Plus they are so pretty they make a great instagram photo!
There are some amazing places to eat in East London. I could spend all day recommending different cafes, restaurants and even market stalls to eat at! It’s impossible to pick favourites, but Dirty Burger is a great place to start. They do a great classic burger, the service is fast and friendly, but it’s a nice place to sit and relax with friends in the evening or on a Saturday afternoon.
