Where? Mount Street in London’s exclusive Mayfair area
When? May 2017
Why? I’ve lived in London for over 15 years now and it never ceases to amaze me how many chic little secret areas there are, with cool boutique shops, great restaurants and quirky cafes. Everyone in the world knows Bond Street and Sloane Street are the two most exclusive shopping addresses in the British fashion capital, but how many of you have heard of Mount Street and Duke Street?
Well I’m here to let you know that I recently discovered this fantastic off the beaten track shopping area, filled with high end designer labels like Celine, Christopher Kane, Balenciaga and shoe boutiques from Nicholas Kirkwood, Christian Louboutin and more. It’s a one stop shopping destination for the discerning fashionista who knows about style.

Bonnie wears pale blue lace dress by Christopher Kane, baby blue sweet charity bag by Christian Louboutin, sunglasses and trainers by Jigsaw at The Duke Street Emporium. Leather jacket Bonnie’s own.
First stop – I popped in to London shoe designer Nicholas Kirkwood’s gorgeous newly refurbished store to try on some of his new spring summer collection.
After a morning of pottering around the area and accessory shopping I met up with my friend Sophie for a spot of lunch at chic French restaurant Comptoir.
Tucked away down a quaint side streets, this delicious lunch spot is perfect for a mid-shopping pit stop and a girly catch up. I recommend the charcuterie board to share with a glass of the sommelier’s choice wine.
Post lunch and there was just enough time to nip back to the Connaught Hotel for a quick bag drop and outfit change.
Bonnie wears dress by No.21, leather jacket, white trainers and sunglasses by Jigsaw, all available at The Duke Street Emporium.
The street houses great international designer and mid market labels.
Quick stop off at Celine for a bit more shopping.
All this shopping can get tiring, even in trainers! So I stopped off for a little chai tea latte break at the very floral Mount Street Deli.
And I couldn’t resist trying on a few fragrances at the exclusive, French perfumery Creed, next door.
After a full day of shopping I met up with Charlie after work for a quick drink at Scott’s, another outfit change later and on to dinner at 34 Mayfair.
Bonnie wears lurex dress by Christopher Kane, sweet charity bag and sparkly shoes by Christian Louboutin, watch by Rolex.
For dessert at 34 Mayfair I highly recommend the cheesecake for two, accessorised below with the sweetest Christian Louboutin bag!
Post dinner it was back to the hotel for the night.
Woke up this morning and the sun is out and there’s still a little time for one last shopping trip. So this time I headed over to Duke Street to check out the Duke Street Emporium and Penelope Chilvers.
Bonnie wears orange floral dress by MSGM, trainers and leather jacket by Jigsaw, all available at The Duke Street Emporium.
Then time to head home…
Thank you so much to Grosvenor London Estate and the beautiful Mount Street area for making my 24 hours in Mayfair such a lovely experience. I’ll definitely be back.

Glad you had fun puttering around :) Sounds like a great place to do some shopping.
I’m not much of a shopper but this area looks gorgeous. I also love the orange flowered dress and your photos are stunning. I’ll have to head there when we make it across the pond!
Love the vibes from these sweet shops. Definitely helps having a photogenic model to showcase the locations <3
Ok, your outfits are gorgeous, but that charcuterie? Yum! I love trying meat and cheese boards when I visit new cities!
Looks like you had such fun around here! I can’t say I visited this area when I was last in London so will keep it in mind! Love your dresses too!
I’ve been in Mayfair and it is indeed posh. The shops are to die for.
In my past trips to London, I have never been to Mount Street so this is definitely on my radar for the next trip. Love the photos of the place and the taste in outfits you have. Looks like you could easily spend an entire day shopping there.
This looks like a fantastic place to shop. I will have to check it out when I am in the area this summer.
Shopping and eating, now that is my kind of day. That white dress is so pretty.
That sounds like a great place to visit. I love spending days like that one!
I love the off-the-wall and hidden kind of stores. They have so much to offer, and they’re always so unique! Great pictures!
It looks like you had such a fun time! Anywhere I can shop and eat is amazing for me!
You have great and lovely photos! I’ve never heard of this place but based on your photos I think I will surely fall in love with that place.
Those all look super cool shops to stop by. I can’t tell you enough how much I love the outfit. They are so amazing.
Thanks for the helpful info :)
You look FABULOUS in all of these pictures! My favorite dress is the fifteenth picture. I want to go on a hunt for that one now. Love this post!
I’ve heard of Mount Street and really want to visit. It’s actually on my list for when I finally visit London.
It’s really nice to go around here and shop. The food looks amazing as well. What a lovely place to spend the entire day at especially when you’re in love with fashion, like me!
Time to grab the credit card and book a flight to london, I feel a shopping spree coming on!
I’m visiting London soon your post made me even more excited about my upcoming trip. So much to see!
Looks like such a lovely area but not somewhere I’d frequent sadly as my budgets are far more high street than high end x
What great information. Your pictures are amazing as well.
I love Mayfair, they have great bars and clearly great shopping too. That cheesecake for two looks great and I love the floral dress Bonnie is wearing x
Mayfair looks like a shoppers paradise! Loved all the dresses of Bonnie! Mayfair reminds me of Worth Avenue at Palm Beach, Fl!
This hidden destination is so cute. I love all of the shopping they have to offer. Those shoes are so beautiful!
Really nice outfit and I love the shoes. The perfume bottle is so unique…
First of all, i love all your photos and your candid shots are truly amazing… I am not really into shopping but my girl will definitely go for it. Mayfair looks really an awesome place to visit and to shop and not to mention the wonderful atmosphere this place has to offer! thanks for sharing
I haven’t been there and it looks a fun time to visit there and I love to spend my day in that kind of place
It looks like you had a fantastic time! I bet anyone that love shopping would love going there!
Wow I love these two streets and the shopping is quite different in both of them. Those Nickolas Kirkwood shoes are to die for especially the ones with the tea straps and the perspex heels… fab!
Whata fun day out and how fabulous is that blue dress, you look absolutely stunning darling.
Looks like you had an amazing time and you looked amazing as well. Such great pictures there.
