Since my first visit to France last winter, I have been inspired by all things from their fine country. I've been immersing myself in the culture, teaching myself Francais, tracking down the best pain au chocolat in EC1V and working to channel the oh, so cool style of Parisian women. The French just know how to do It well, and they certainly enjoy la jolie vie (the beautiful life). As the weekend unfolds and I think of simple pleasures, there are few things I look forward to more than long, lazy afternoons while catching up with friends over brunch. Being a former New Yorker, brunch is a staple of every weekend and is the perfect excuse to eat all the pastries you want. MAISON TROIS GARCONS in Shoreditch is one of my favourite spots in London, and this chic little outpost perfectly marries my love for brunch and all things French. You can just sit back and enjoy a flaky croissant, avocado toast and cappuccino (hands down, one of the best in the UK).
One of the small joys in my life is waking up on Sunday mornings and reading the news, then rolling out of bed and making an Illy coffee before venturing out for the day. Comfort is essential on Sundays, especially after a sweat-inducing spinning session at CYCLEBEAT, which is almost always followed by brunch and a walk to Columbia Market. I always get dressed in the same type of outfit, a cosy pair of black jeans, a super soft tee and a scarf that I can just wrap myself up in. I have been sticking to a lot of neutrals and stripes since I've moved to Europe, I love the soft colour palette and then playing with extravagant accessories. HUSH's new collection is all about stylish staples in luxe materials, such as smooth silks and soft to the touch cashmere that will last for many seasons to come. Think boyfriend jumpers, sleek pencil skirts and knitted bomber jackets. Also, a black & white Breton top such as this helps me to achieve the alluring and effortless French style of lets say the fabulous Charlotte Gainsbourg.
