If you are looking for somewhere to visit at the weekend pop over to Connaught Village, go for a walk in Hyde Park and then wander over.

Connanught Village is a prestigious enclave of London, home to Tony Blair and Claudia Winkleman to name but  a few, I had been told about a great boutique called Viola which is located there so after dropping my husband and kids at Winter Wonderland I decided to pop in, as it is only around the corner.

On my way I wandered through the village which is small but offers a great array of beautiful shops and fabulous places to eat.

If you fancy a bite to eat there is the fabulous restaurant Kurabuta, going there on Saturday so let you know how I get on!

The piece de resistence is Viola, this is a truly great boutique with an owner to match, the gorgeous Sara Lauchlan, chatted away while I tried on an array of glorious  cashmere, coats and dresses Sarah has an ecclectic eye for clothes that fit and are wearable.

A lot of the pieces you won’t find anywhere else and the look is everyday classy rock chic.

I decided on this Bella Freud 1970 sweater , I have debated this sweater for as quite expensive but it is fit so well and it is a special year for me!

This sweater  is a year round  piece, I am  wearing it here with leggings and in the summer I will pair it with a black maxi skirt.

I have tried on so many striped sweaters but somehow never found the right one, Madelaine Thompson is the Queen of stripes and her cashmere fits beautifully, I have lived in this one.

I fell in love with this beautiful coat from Bonheur , you cannot beat camel and fur it is a killer combination.

The atmosphere is really relaxed and the pieces so well curated that you just cannot go wrong. I guarantee you any pieces you buy you will live in, I have !

I have added some other great finds from Viola below.
