London Fashion Week is one of the most fun but stressful times of the fashion calendar, I love that I get to see the new collections up-close and discover new talent, and this season was packed full of talent, but the stress that goes into what to wear is crazy. I used to stick to my all-black wardrobe, tried and tested and never fails, but there is something about letting go and trying something new, and that’s where this winter floral suit from Wolf & Whistle came in, I thought it was very Erdem.
Can we just give a moment to this wonderful spell of sunshine, granted it might not be summer climate weather, but yeah to sunshine. It really has felt good this past week to be able to show off my legs and not have to hide away for winter. It’s weird, normally come September 1, I’ve stocked up on tights ready for the autumn and wintery weather, but this year, and I think it comes with confidence I’m not afraid to show off my pins, and that’s thanks in part to discovering Braun’s range of epilators.
OK, I’ve gushed before about my switching from shaving to using an epilator, trust me once you use you won’t want to go back, and it most definitely has made it so easy to switch up my style this summer. When you don’t have to worry whether you legs are smooth it really makes a huge difference, and I love how just by adding my Braun Silk-Epil 5 Wet & Dry to my beauty routine its given me a new found confidence.
September seems to be my month for apologies, once again sorry for the lack of blog posts lately, I could blame London Fashion Week, which was an amazing but a very busy five days, but actually I’ve been working on a non-blog-related freelance gig that’s been taking up my time, but thankfully, fingers crossed I should be back to normal next week. But I come bearing one of my favourite style posts in a while, an awesome suede mini skirt from the new TTYA x Long Tall Sally range.
I’ve been going through a bit of a Seventies moment of late, pretty much like everyone else, the era certainly took over the summer and I’m pleased to say it is continuing through for autumn and winter, so I couldn’t resist wearing this beauty of a suede mini to London Fashion Week.
First of all I’m sorry for the lack of blog posts the past couple of weeks, I kind of took an impromptu holiday, I didn’t actually go away, well except Berlin for work, but it seems when your husband is off work all you want to do is play and eat lots of food!!! I have to admit I’m finding it hard this week getting back into a groove. It isn’t that I’m struggling for content, I’ve got loads, I’m actually a little overwhelmed about where to start with it all. I have my trip to Berlin, which by the way, was amazing, a spa review, a new beauty brand obsession, more style posts including my favourite maxi dress and some jazzy strippy trousers from Asos, as well as sharing more of my travels to Kuala Lumpur. I just can’t believe how busy I’ve been, normally August is a little downtime before the madness of fashion week, but not this year.
So as it has been two weeks since my last style post so I thought I would share one from my recent Berlin trip and show off the amazing ripped jeans from American Eagle Outfitters that I was raving about in a recent blog post on their pop-up in Old Street station, which by the way is still open until September 20, as well as this bargain sleeveless coat from Boohoo.com, which is now only £12 – for more great options check out this shopping post.
