You may wonder what is there to see in Chelsea, especially around the Chelsea Harbour in West London. Certainly no sea to see around Chelsea Harbour but the elongated flowing streams of the River Thames which continues to be the lifeline of London city. Braving the thrilling chill in the air, we nevertheless ventured out last weekend taking up the challenge to see the Chelsea Harbour ourselves.
To a complete contrast of the usual hustle and bustle of busy London centre, the Chelsea harbour turned out to be a tranquil sanctuary for the affluent. Privately parked yachts and water vessels right in front of the lavish apartments and hotels, the neighbourhood simply lacked the inhabitants it seemed. Could be because of the cold snap in the air or apartments were empty because of their owners being from and living in foreign lands – we got the entire harbour – to our grand delight – only to ourselves.
With the backdrop of the Battersea Railway Bridge and in the company of the flock of greedy and hungry sea-gulls, we took a nice stroll along the Thames Walkway. Being next to the river itself, naturally the mercury was a few degrees lower – making the chill feel unbearable at times. To keep things warm and cosy, my love for oversized jumpers came into rescue once again. This love affair started long ago.Who doesn’t want to spend the winter swaddled in fabric like an adult baby? Oversized sweaters are genius things: comfy, cozy and oh-so-versatile. Perhaps that’s why designers and brands don’t let go of them, be it winter, spring, summer or fall. And though we were not in Baker Street, a Baker Boy hat was my chosen head-gear for the day. You know I love a hat. It finishes off a look in a way that no other accessory can. It screams confident, it states fashionista. Now that we are in the middle of winter season, it’s time to start taking advantage of the colder weather. ”Baker boy hats (also known as newsboy, poor boy or fisherman hats) rose to popularity around the turn of the century, but they’re having a moment yet again among the best dressed set”- says Who What Wear
