The London West Hollywood

Boxwood Cafe inside The London

The last weeekend of April I hunkered down in West Hollywood for some R&R at fab hotel, The London.


Jumping on the advice of my friend Toks, I decided this was to be the place for my latest getaway. Toks had actually invited me to a Boxwood brunch at The London back in February, and I figured if I was smitten with the food and the ambience, the rest of the hotel had to be my cup of tea...and it certainly was.

Originally I was slated to be in town just the 26th through the 29th but I ended up staying another night because I refused to leave The London I loved it so.


Below you will find detailed photos of my room and more importantly, my expertly picked outfits from the entire trip. Because of course. Hopefully you'll be inspired to take your next trip to The London!


Enjoy

THE ROOM





















THE POWDER ROOM











THE TERRACE









After I saw the perfectly white bathroom I began to think maybe this trip should have had the hashtag #ShopSaveSequinsTakesTheLondonBathTub. It seemed appropriate since I'm slightly NOT embarrassed to say I spent a lot of time in that glorious bathroom. 

The walk-in shower had dual shower heads. The left side of the shower had a wonderful, massaging effect while the right side of the shower had a nice rain-style shower head. 

I was more than at home in the ginormous and crazy deep bathtub...the perfectly situated vanity...the huge terrace...the room was perfect. 

I got a roomy terrace instead of a view. View = tiny balcony, so I was happy with my big terrace, which ended up being fine since I spent my days up at the rooftop pool taking in the views of the hills and LA whilst sipping on a lot of ginger lemonade's...I need those in my life daily.

I wore a black James Perse cut-out 1-piece. C. Wonder aviators
The BEST ginger lemonade's ever. I am obsessed.

Toks & I tanning on Saturday when the pool deck was packed!
I wore a Weston Wear dress as a coverup/cocktail dress 
I wore a Luxe by Lisa Vogel 2-piece c/o Swimspot. Target shades.

So, I soaked in a lot of sun...and ginger lemonade's. And I soaked in a lot of baths...sorry...had to mention the bathtub again...



And hung out with friends and ate a lot of good food...


Dinner in Venice Beach at Gjelina's Sunday night
Burgers poolside almost too awesome to eat
My mini tacos brought to the room were insanely scrumptious!

Late-afternoon cocktails at the Boxwood Cafe
The fab entrance to the Boxwood Cafe. Because GOLD

Shamps late into the night with friends Friday night at Gordon Ramsay
And what would a stay at The London be without a little tea service?
Room service was impeccable

Truly enjoyed my stay considering the staff was so happy to accomodate 24/7. And my room was so easy and comfortable...and I really liked that handy vanity...


You know I love a good selfie shot...


All calls to London, complimentary. Naturally.
Sitting in the lobby of The London waitng for Uber. How cliche.
