Yesterday was the birthday of the King of Peru so to celebrate we took a trip to London. For me there is no better person in the world to spend the day shopping, I have someone who gets just as excited with clothes as I do (and thats quite a feat)
When we go for the day our schedule is very precise as there is always so much we want to see. Our first stop is always Selfridges and Shoe Galleries is always a must. Yesterday I was looking for Isabel Marant Danelya boots in white but I found the silver and tried those instead. I did continue my search for the white crackled leather but it was unsuccessful.
Isabel Marant Danelya Boots £430 here
A visit to Whistles whilst in Selfridges and completely fell in love with a mixed dot jumpsuit and a lilac gilet! ( I know but it was complexly beautiful). The jumpsuit clearly has more mileage so I can confirm that even though I didn’t buy it yesterday it is now on its way to me. Sadly I cannot find an image of the gilet.
Whistles Mix and Match Spot Jumpsuit £249 here
I will wear this so many times especially in store (personal shopping) it is perfect (well hopefully)
I do think this silk dress is also a must for summer is store.
Whistles Multi Strap Silk Willa Dress £219 here
Next a visit to South Molten Street to visit two of the King of Peru’s favourite boutiques Vertice and Layers. Nice pieces but no purchases!
By this time we were both starving so lunch at our favourite London restaurant Daphnes on Draycott Avenue in Chelsea (opposite J Crew and near Joseph) The food is divine and my Bellini was sublime ! I had Linguine with crab chilli and parsley and it was truly delicious the King of Peru ate Calves Liver and was equally delighted (he had the same last time so the speaks volumes)
With our newly restored energy we walked out of the restaurant and straight into Golden Goose Deluxe Brand’s new store. With my new found love of sneakers this store was like a candy shop. I left with these very pretty sneakers which I cannot wait to wear (and they are sparkly too )
Golden Goose Deluxe Brand May Sneakers £290 here
I have been a little annoyed with myself for not buying a Valentino VLTN tee when they first hit the stores and now they have sold everywhere! Yesterday after seeing the King try one on in Joseph the answer came to me “just buy a mens extra small” I bought the birthday boy a black one and he later bought me a white one in Harrods (not sure that is fair on your birthday!)
Valentino VLTN mens tee £225 here

Another tee we both loved for the King is this one by Saint Laurent the fabric is delicious!

This Valentino mens parka was the piece that stole both of our hearts! As a real parka lover (I do have a few) this one ticked every box, it even includes a detachable gilet!
Valentino Mens Hooded Parka £1950 here
I never found the Isabel Marant white boots, I know they are online but for now I will leave them alone. I love my new sneakers way too much to share.
