Style Theory: My favourite little area of London, shops, cafés, bars, restaurants galore and never too busy.
Years ago I used to work in Chelsea and love popping back for a wander when I have a chance. When my sister came over for the weekend we decided to hit Chelsea rather than tackle Oxford Street as it is a little quieter.
First stop The Botanist for coffee and warm scones...much needed energy for shopping..
A gorgeous food market in the Duke of York Square, then a meander along to have lunch siting outside The Builders Arms

Then onto The Phene to meet up with old friends for drinks....heaven

A last minute change of outfit as the day started off stormy so my dress and heeled sandals were replaced by my trusty breton and jeans..
Top: Petit Bateau
Jeans: Gap similar here
Trainers: John Lewis Collection similar here
I bought: hoping to wear this to watch the tennis at Wimbledon in a couple of weeks (weather permitting) with my heeled tan sandals or Stan Smith trainers:
|Cos Melange Jumper - now £29|
|Cos Skirt with Draped Pockets now £41|
I tried on and loved....
|Cos Sleeveless Dress £115|
but unfortuately am lacking occasions when I can wear this!
It was lovely spending the day with my little sister, Mum and some lovely friends. Thank you Las Calles De Barcelona for all the images..xx
