Outfit Post: Westbourne Grove

For brunch this morning I met Elodie in one of my favourite parts of London: Notting Hill. There is just something about the area with all its beautiful houses, individual shops and mouthwatering eateries that always lifts my spirits. Our destination was Westbourne Grove, just off of Portobello Road, a beautiful area with some of my favourite shops like Whistles, as well as a Ralph Lauren and a Helmut Lang. 

It has been absolutely freezing this weekend in London and I have spent most of it walking around the city, so at least some of the icy fresh air will hopefully have done me some good!
We had brunch at Tom's Deli, a fantastic little place on the grove which Rose recommended for brunch in one of her recent posts. Look out for a 'Places To Eat In London' feature on our meal very soon! 
Usually I don't really wear prints, but I recently got this beautiful scarf from Spartoo and I've worn it quite a bit since it was delivered. Usually you just think of places like that as just a shoe site, but some of the shoe labels they stock like Belmondo where this scarf is from have some pretty cute accessories!
Fox & Acorn Charm Bracelet: Foxgloves London for Hobbs, Dress Watch: Citizen, Wrap Bracelet: Whistles

This bracelet is one of the bargains I picked up at the Hobbs Sample Sale on Thursday. It was designed for Hobbs by Foxgloves London, is plated with 14CT gold with a leather acorn leaf and two freshwater pearls. It retailed at £89, but I managed to pick it up for £2! I actually bought two of them, so you'll have to keep an eye out for my blog birthday post if you'd like to get your hands on one!
See what I mean about beautiful houses in the area? This is quite literally just off of Portobello Road. I think Notting Hill has some of the most beautiful houses in London.

How did you spend your Sunday? And, more importantly have you got any more Notting Hill or otherwise brunch recommendations for me to go and try out? A Sunday really does not feel like a Sunday if I have not met up with one of my girlfriends for brunch!
