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.
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.
Does anyone else get a little fear when thinking about wearing shorts? Or is it just me. For years I stayed clear, then I discovered a pair of great fitting denim shorts, and I was kind of hooked on finding more. My search, I have to be honest hasn’t been overly successful, why do they have to be so tiny, why so tight, and why so unflattering?
Well I’ve found the most perfect pair of weekend shorts from Fat Face, they are so comfortable as they have a little flare, plus the elephant print makes them so adorable to wear, and I love that they are versatile. You can wear these beauties with a T-shirt, a shirt or even a jumper, and pair with sandals, wedges, and as I have done a bright pair of trainers.
If smell-o-vision existed, I’d insist you turn it on, as you’d be able to smell the gorgeous aromas of lavender just by looking at these images. As soon as I saw this Fearne Cotton for Very maxi dress, I knew instantly that I wanted to shoot in a field of purple, and I’m so glad that Hitchin Lavender Farm is so close to me as it was such a fun afternoon prancing around in this gorgeous dress.
