The Scandinavian brand Our Legacy launched their very first eyewear line at the beginning of March. I got to see the designs at the official launch party in their Soho store and try on some of the shades along the way. The collection includes three different styles from rounded, organic shapes to more geometric ones, titled 'void', 'embrace' and 'faith'. I also had the chance to look at their menswear clothing line and try on one of their woven coats, which could easily be rocked by women, as well. Check out Our Legacy if you're in the area and on the search for unique and timeless designs.
Since spring has arrived in London I have started to look for alternative outerwear pieces to my winter coats which still keep me warm. While I love dressing up and wearing more structured coats and blazers, some days I simply want to be comfortable. Oversized knit cardigans are just perfect for that and can be layered over dresses or underneath trenchcoats. I wore mine paired with over the knee boots and a really casual, flowy dress on a weekend trip to Regent's Park.
On recommendation of one of my friends we decided to visit Marylebone Farmers' Market, located in a small parking lot just off Marylebone high street. Being a fan of this area anyway, I couldn't wait to see what the market had to offer. As opposed to Borough market, it was primarily attended by locals and offered a small yet nice selection of baked goods, cheese, veggies and cooked food, which gave it a very pleasant and homelike feel. Head out there on a Saturday and try one of their delicious sausage rolls or homemade cakes before continuing your walk along Marylebone highstreet to visit the legendary Daunt Books for some literary inspiration.
Greenberry Café on Regent's Park Road is one of my new favourite brunch spots - a small menu and daily specials ensure that the food is always fresh and intriguing. I ordered a fennel, blood orange, chicorée and goat cheese salad which was incredibly delicious and refreshing. They also offer more classic, hearty breakfast classics such as waffles with glazed bacon, poached eggs and avocado or blueberry pancakes. We indulged shamelessly and took a walk to Primrose Hill and through Regent's Park afterwards.
