Granger & Co., 105 Marylebone High Street 

Brunch at Granger and Co is hardly ground breaking, but I’ve yet to find anywhere that does better scrambled eggs – and the ricotta hot cakes are mouth-wateringly good too. I’ll often go to brunch there in a pair of casual jeans styled up with a recent vintage purchase and a fur coat. My metallic Mary Jane ballerinas complete the look.

Layla Bakery, 332 Portobello Road 

Layla Bakery is my local – I love its coffee and delicious baked goods. The cinnamon babkas are standout. For autumn coffee runs, I like an all-white look – I find it lightens the mood when it’s gloomy out. This includes white denim and a soft cashmere sweater from my mother’s brand noName, plus a warm coat. My Manolo Blahnik x Birkenstocks are always a coffee-run staple. I love how they add a pop of colour and interest to a simple outfit.

Zephyr, 100 Portobello Road 

Zephyr is a Greek restaurant that’s been blowing up recently. I’ve been a few times and the food is delicious. The menu is perfect for sharing – I love the popcorn chicken and aubergine dip with homemade pita bread. Plus, it has such a cool vibe. A two-piece suit is my go-to for a place like this when I don’t quite know what I want to wear but still want to look pulled together. This set from Danish brand The Garment is timeless with a modern twist. I love throwing my Totême blazer over the top.

Sabor, 35-37 Heddon Street 

My favourite place for dinner at the moment is a Spanish restaurant called Sabor. You’ll find it in a small alleyway off Regent Street. I’d recommend the octopus or monkfish tempura. In terms of my outfit, this Cecilie Bahnsen top has been a favourite for a few seasons now. Cool and feminine, the open back is a fun touch and is perfect paired with black leather trousers or jeans.


Chiltern Firehouse, 1 Chiltern Street 

The bar at Chiltern Firehouse is a great place to go after dinner, when you’re not quite ready to go home. Naomi Pierce in Succession has been my style inspiration ever since I saw her on screen in a Proenza Schouler strapless top and wide leathers – so I now channel something similar for an evening out at Chiltern. If you go, order a spicy margarita.
