Heidi Klein: Covent Garden Pop-Up

On really grey and drizzly days in London, 

I'm often prone to do the same little loop around the neighborhood.


Ottolenghi for a latte and pain au chocolate, 

LOFT for pretending I'm in France...


...and then to the kids charity shop up the street

in hopes that a millionaire has just emptied out

their well-heeled toddler's dresser drawers.

And at that point,

when my hair has officially reached "terrible" status

and my ballet flats are wet through to my feet,

I typically head to Heidi Klein

for a quick trip to somewhere warm

and to indulge myself in denial of the weather.

The smell of their coconut candles

and the warm beachy feel transports me

to a happy (and warm) place...

plus, the owner Heidi Gosman is so kind and cute.

As I paw the swimsuits dangling on hangers

and wish that I hadn't bloated my stomach

with the previously mentioned pastry

so that I might be able to stomach watching myself try one on.

(Pun intended.)

Heidi Klein is currently giving Central London 

a little bit of their exotic goodness

with the new pop-up shop in Covent Garden

running through the first weeks of July.


Go in and get a slice of paradise in London's West End.

(Also, one of their cute beach totes is free with all purchases over £200!)
