Window shopping along Sloane Street

We took an early morning walk  on our way to Harrods, in Knightsbridge.
While the shops had not opened yet, this was a great opportunity to snap a few photos while walking by all these posh shops.

I love window shopping everything was so beautifully displayed.
Hopefully it should provide some eye candy for you to look at.

We are still getting over the jet lag - wake at 3 am - thinking it is time to get up  and such a strange feeling... and just to muddle us up some more, day light saving started here in NZ at the weekend.
Happy October
I wish you a perfect day


  1. My favorite kind of shopping, window shopping!!! Hopefully you're jetlag won't last too long!!! xoxo

  2. Dearest Carolyn,
    Oh, it takes you a while for adjusting and your time difference is even less than the 12 hours we always had to bridge when flying to work in Indonesia... Also age has a lot to do with it; when we were younger it made us fluff back faster! Ha-ha.
    Lovely window shopping, that's quite a while ago since I was in London. Love the La Perla items; got hooked on that after having worked and lived in Italy. Luckily we have La Perla Outlets here in the USA!
    Hugs to you and take your time for adjusting back to your time.

  3. My dear Carolyn, so nice pictures!
    I can understand, that you stil have problems with the Jetlag, but I am sure, you will get back to Normal soon ;O)
    Happy october to you, my dear friend!
    Love and hugs

  4. Hello dear Carolyn

    Oh YES you found some wonderful eye candy for us - great displays.
    I could spend a fortune in La Perla alone!
    Early morning is the best time for photos before people get in your way - big cities like London especially.

    I KNOW JET LAG......... it's not fair is it - the 28-30 hour trip home is bad enough but then getting back into the NZ sleep pattern is something again - I'm thinking of you!

    Much love and hugs
    it's so good to have you safely back home Carolyn!

  5. Hi Carolyn,

    Window shopping is a lot of fun right ! :) The shops do look very posh.


  6. Thanks for your beautiful photos dear Carolyn!
    I hope you are feeling better after your long trip to Europe!
    For this reason I was never in your country!
    I hate long flights, after traveling so much times for years.
    But perhaps one day ....it' s so beautiful in your country and I want to see the little islands near Tahiti ...
    I wish you a sunny relaxing week!
    With love,

  7. Oh yes; some eye candy! I don´t like shopping, but I really like your pictures!

  10. Lovely, just LOVELY, CAROLYN! Thank you for taking me shopping down streets that I do hope to see one day. You have yourself a perfect day my dear! Anita

  11. Window shopping is fun, Carolyn...those designers are so talented and the windows tell a story. Even more fun to see what they'll do for the holidays.
    (Love La Perla!)
    Glad you're back and to read that you had a super trip!

  12. How exciting window shopping with such great shops. Our Day light saving starts this coming weekend. I hope the jet lag goes soon.

  13. Dearest Carolyn,
    Happy October to you!
    My goodness, this year is flying by and it will be Christmas before I know it and onto the new year.

    Love the window shopping. I use to be a window trimmer and so I do notice these outstanding windows that are really tastefully done. A great presentation.

    May you get over jet lag and be good as new soon. Blessings and have a sweet Autumn,

  14. Such a special style... very cool, dear Carolyn... and you dear, will hopefully soon have "recovered" from jetlag, and be able to sleep all night, and wake in good time ... 8 o`clock ;-)
    --I love to sleep till 8!
    Hugs from Dorthe

    You have taken me to your window shopping,thank you!
    Yes, it is good to walk before shops open in a busy city.
    I too love it! I hope your jet lag will go away soon!

  24. Hi Carolyn,

    Those shops look really posh, I wonder if I would be able to pick anything from them. Nevertheless, it's wonderful to look and enjoy them from the outside and see what all things they have got to offer. Many thanks for taking us on a virtual shopping spree,

    Wish you a wonderful weekend ahead,


  25. WOW ...
    Just a dream ... I love Chanel, my favorite.
    Have a great week end.
