Maitre Choux and turtlenecks

I might not be able to pronounce ‘Maitre Choux’ correctly but I can eat their pastries pretty well.

Also if you didn’t pick up from the title of this blog post it’s still not spring here in London. But the temperature has increased by about 3 degrees which means I no longer need a coat. Yay. We gotta celebrate the small things.

Here’s the deal – if you’re doing a lot of walking in London, which unless you’re the queen you probably are, then you will need a delish pastry to keep you going. I like to think of it as luxury carbo loading. And at £5 a pastry it is a luxury, but it’s worth it 🙂

Maitre Choux is a French pastry store in South Kensington that are famous (Insta famous that is) for their eclairs. Their selection is quite big, making choosing one even more tricky. I went for the “Red Love Eclair” because I love raspberries. You can choose to eat in (costs a bit more) or to takeaway, which I think is better because the packaging is really cute. I’m a sucker for packaging.

Anyway back to turtlenecks, or what I like to call, the classier version of a polo-neck. I styled this woolly one with a mini skirt and Chelsea boots because I was desperate to stop wearing jeans. That’s the truth, there’s nothing glamours about that.

If you do visit the Maitre Choux shop in South Kensington then have a walk around the beautiful area. There’s a lovely square where you can grab a bite to eat close by. The Natural History Museum, Science Museum, and V&A is a must and it’s just down the road. Otherwise just stalk people’s pretty houses nearby…
