Keep calm & stay classy

Isn't it sometimes just weird how you change your views on certain places and parts of a city once you visit them after a long time?! At least, this was my thought when I went to Covent Garden yesterday. A few years ago I refused to wander around this place (the closest I thought of was Leicester Square.. not least because there's one of my favourite restaurants and hotels located). It just felt so packed with all the tourists and artists showing their unnecessary acts (congrats, you idiot are able to drive an unicycle) over a place, which I always found way too nice to be taken over by the massive crowd (an utopian imagination not be taken over by the mass in a world metropolis). 
However, there's that habit in all of us which leads us to forgive and forget negative impressions and so it happened to this place for me. As I was having a walk, I realised how original it is (even if a Japanese senior group and a bunch of little underbred kids are crossing your way). The old English spirit punched with young people and simply cute (there's no other expression for this) cafes (and I hate to describe something like this as "cute" but I can't help it) build up an amazingly relaxed atmosphere. I guess the secret I came behind (so clever) is that I rather should spend some time during the week than on the weekend. 
So after shooting more than 300 pictures (yes, there's no shame here.. my camera is super quick), I had a short visit at the small Ladurée store over there. 
Is it just me or are there eventually some other people out there who just simply hate macarons?
I never ever understood the hype about them. What the hell has been gone wrong with all the bloggers, fashionistas and other highly important people who adore these little dumb coloured pieces of overrated sweet crap?! I somehow got the feeling that either you have to be in possession of a neon coloured satchel bag, Jeffrey Campbell's Litas or these macarons to be totally cool for street style. Nevertheless, I'm always fascinated by the way Ladurée people try to trick you with the delicious way of serving you macarons. Pink, yellow, brown, pink with white cream, brown with dark cream, green (ew ew ew ew ew ew ew simply ewww) and purple - let them be put in a cute little box in houndstooth design and show your fashionable way of eating sweets. Next time I get convinced to at least try one, I will take a picture. My face always looks like a wild mixture of biting on a lemon and eating something really nasty. :D  
But besides from the little repetitive discovery of my macaron aversion, I spent a wonderful day. Just how I like it. :)

  11. Your photos are amazing! Love the one where you are looking down and it looks like it was shot in aerial view. I have to agree that you have to have j.campbell litas and a neon satchel to qualify as "cool" street style, either of which I don't have and am not a huge fan of... I do however love macarons, they are so yummy :)

  31. i love covent garden is one of my favorite places in London! as i lived in London for 3 years i have visited covent garden a lot of times! you are right about it being crowded! if you visit it during weekdays is much much better!
    macaroons i think became cool cause of their color and shapes! i think they are cute but i have never tried them to be honest!
    about your outfit! i love it is so so chic!

  32. I only visit Covent Garden during the week (in the morning) because it's simply too crowded.

  47. In love with your Cartier. Love that ring, easy way to mix silver, yellow, and rose gold all at once. Cartier always has a way to make jewelry look better. Adore your Chanel as well. I was laughing at your explanation to the macaroons. They finally opened a shoppe stateside on Madison Ave in NYC, and the line is constantly circling blocks. Just to get a taste of this petite cookie. I must admit I do love them, and you are certainly correct on how they try extra hard to make them look chic.

    Move to USA your too chic to not be my bff!
