A Week in WARES with Olivia and Nika
Last month, Olli Ella co-founder Olivia and her daughter Nika travelled from Los Angeles to London to visit our Islington Office - where Olli Ella first came to be! They went all the places and did all the things, and had the very best time together wearing their favourite matching dresses from our debut WARES collection. Keep reading to see what Liv and Nika got up to on their London adventure...
The girls started their trip with a visit to our London HQ in Islington. Olli Ella started just around the corner, in the basement of the art gallery that was the sisters' first business together. Olli Ella moved into this office when we outgrew the first space... although things are now starting to get a little tight with our growing team!
After work, Liv and Nika headed to Camden Passage - a favourite amongst our UK team for cute cafes, markets and fabulous photo-ops. No visit to Camden passage is complete without a stop into Paul A Young Chocolate, and after a long day in the office, the girls deserved nothing less than a few luxury truffles enjoyed on the sidewalk (and a few for the road).
Next up - picking some sweet vintage postcards from Modern Times Vintage to send to cousin Nell (who would not be pleased to learn about aforementioned chocolates).
After a well-earned pit stop, Nika and Olivia were off to visit some of our favourite London stockists and enjoyed a bit of classic London scenery on the way.
The second day of their adventure began with more strolls through the dreamy London streets, and ended with discovering new favourite places to return to next time!
What is a Spring-time trip to Islington without stopping to smell the roses?! After a quick browse of the local flower market and a spot of shopping, Olivia and Nika grabbed a coffee and had a chat at one of the many little cafes in the area, to chill and regroup before the flight home.
Finally, it was back on the plane and across the sea to California to prepare for their next adventure! Where will our Olli Ella gang go to next? You'll have to wait and see!
