Brunch is my favourite meal of the day. Not only because I hail from Berlin where brunch is an obligatory weekend past time. I love sweet breakfast (croissant, Nutella) merged with savoury goodies such as delicious, runny eggs, cold meats and fresh juices.
“New Toms” restaurant in Notting Hill is a beautifully decorated place with painted, baroque-esque ceilings and a outdoor patio for those (rare) balmy days in London. The stripped-down-to-the-best menu offered delicious brunch options such as Eggs Benedict, homemade blueberry muffins and pain au chocolat for the sweet toothed like me.
Fuelled by great food, we strolled along Westbourne Grove and it’s array of fashionable shops. “Wolf & Badger”is a fashion store that provides a platform for selected, emerging UK designers. Every weekend, a new independent designer displays their clothes, shoes & jewellery in the shop.
That Saturday was my my lucky day as I discovered the beautiful flats and sandals of La Paire. Founder and designer Amy La displayed a sneak preview of her Autumn/Winter 2014 pointy ballet pumps in the shop. Needless to say, I’m in love with the confetti-glitter flats and the metallic Easter-egg colours of the shoes. Handmade in Spain, they are not only stylish but also fairly priced.
Wolf & Badger was named one of Britain’s best boutiques by British Vogue, make sure you pop by when you visit London. Thanks Wolf & Badger and La Paire, Romantique’s new favourite shop for ballet flats & sandals!
