off the rack: london edition

london shopping, via shopping's my cardio

Friends, I have so much to tell you about the wonderful time I had in London last week! But first things first – I know you want the scoop on my retail adventures, and goodness knows there’s plenty to tell. In four days, I managed to hit Portobello Road, Liberty of London, Harrods, Topshop, Selfridges, the V&A Museum shop, Cath Kidson, and of course Boots. To say nothing of the sightseeing, eating, theatre and my afternoon at the Four Seasons. Exhausted? Yep. Worth it? Totally.

While I catch my breath, I thought I’d show you a few of my favorite finds from London. Don’t fret – after some very careful sleuthing, I’ve found spots you can nab each and every one of these goodies right here in these United States. 

Add a few too many boxes of Cadbury Heroes, a stack of British magazines and enough cheeky greeting cards to last me through next year (no one does greeting cards like the Brits!), and you can guess why my suitcase was setting weight records at the airport.

Stay tuned for more details on the trip…I’ll have a must-do list for London and my new-and-improved packing list for you soon!

    I’m curious about the sizing/fit of the Mono Waterfall Coatigan. I’m typically a medium, but sometimes require a large depending on the fit of the shoulders and arms. Advice??

    Sarah: Good question! I actually thought the Coatigan ran a little on the roomy side if anything. So, I think you’d be just fine with a medium. The jeans (from the same brand) were a little generous too – usually UK sizes are 2 sizes larger than US, but I only went up one size. Hope that helps!
