Andaz London Liverpool Street Hotel Review

I want to share my stay at the Andaz London Liverpool Street Hotel on the blog. The Andaz London is such a chic five-star hotel and with being my first time staying there, it did not disappoint!

(See the full video of the Andaz London Hotel I documented on YouTube )

The Andaz is in a prime location in London near great restaurants and transit. It is just steps away from the Liverpool station which makes it easy to get around to your destination. The hotel is in the business district so you can get caught in the swarm of people rushing to the office in the morning. If you're sensitive to noise,  request a room facing inward since the street side has a lot of noise from the nearby brigade and pubs.

While the facade of the building looks historic, as soon as you walk in the lobby, you are welcomed by modern chic decor. The guest rooms are carefully designed and have beautiful artwork. There is also a snack area in the lobby to grab a small bite before you head out for a day of adventure in London.  The gym has plenty as great equipment for a quick workout if you have some time after sightseeing all day.

The service I received from this amazing hotel and it is the people who make it such a nice place to stay.One really cool feature of the hotel is that is houses a Mosaic temple in the basement. It is not easy to find, but if you ask a hotel employee they will be more than happy to show you the temple.  A cool fact about the temple-Lady Gaga shot one of her music videos in it. It is still used for Masonic meetings every month.

The Hyatt Andaz London Liverpool Street Hotel is a fabulous place to stay right in the heart of London.

London Vacation Fashion

While London is known to be a rainy city, everyday of my stay was filled with sunshine (maybe I brought the sunshine with me).  London is all about style that is très chic so I packed a few fabulous outfits. 
Pencil skirts are always a classic and are a great option for dinner or a night out on town. My pink pencil skirt matched perfectly with my Aldo heels so naturally that was an easy choice to pair.  I am a big fan of lace so I paired my pink pencil skirt with a soft lavender lace top.

Lace Top: Nanette Lepore 
Skirt: Banana Republic 
Heels: Aldo 

My second outfit was again more lace...did I mention I love lace? This dusty pastel blue dress is great for both a daytime and evening look.  All the details on the dress created a very elegant presentation.  I opted for low heel slingback shoes since I was doing a lot of walking during the day. 

Lace Dress: Akira
Heels: Dior

Rainbow Pastel Lookbook

Pastel colors are the perfect summer trend. These soft, powdery hues not only translate to winter, spring, summer, and fall, but they also play nicely with many fabrics. My personal favorite is lace and it always looks elegant. This summer my wardrobe was filled an array of rainbow pastels. There was a pastel outfit in every color, as you may have seen on my blog and social media accounts. I combined all of the outfits and complied a video of all the outfit details. Link is below:

Each pastel outfit is pictured below with a link to each post for more details:
