LFW Day 3: Fashion Faux Pas and TOGA SS15

So you may or may not notice the fashion faux pas going on here... but I am wearing the skirt you saw in yesterdays post! I am sure that must be some huge Fashion Week no no (hopefully they will let me come back!!) On Sunday we had a quiet day, so I wanted to be comfortable and laid back (Read: wear jeans and flats). I decided to keep my jeans a little more interesting by layering my Zara skirt over the jeans, with a long coat over that. 

I also bumped into some lovely ladies who I know of through Instagram, I obviously took the chance to take a snap (this one here), and check out this action shot Harry got. In in the Insta-moment. 

 Sunday was a quiet day, so I really got to spend some time with Harry before he left that evening. I only went to one show, which was the TOGA presentation. It was held at the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel, which was a lovely location. We were greeting with some cocktails and live music, as the models stood around the room. I loved the collection, there was so many pieces with a focus on different textures and volumes. 

 My favourite item of the presentation was definitely this amazing coat!!! I love this so so much, just imagine how great it would look over a really chunky knit. I think it is a great update on a black coat, that is a statement that can be worn season after season! 

So that was my Sunday at London Fashion Week! I was sad to say bye to Harry, but was very happy to switch hotels. I had done two night at the Britannia Hampstead on Primrose Hill (which I wouldn't recommend), and in Sunday switched to the Premier Inn at Waterloo. I got so settled there that I didn't actually leave all evening!! It was so lovely and relaxing to catch up on the blog world, drink lots of tea and relax on a super comfy bed.. but more of that tomorrow! 

I am also loving this pair with the zip on the leg, yes please!! 
This ASOS duster coat is very similar indeed.
I am loving this ASOS pair as an alternative.

LFW Day 2: Outfit Change!

 SO here is my second look of the second day of London Fashion Week. I had honestly packed enough clothes to move down there forever, which despite being a pain to drag around the city, was a good plan! After meeting Harry on Saturday, we rushed back to the hotel to drop off his bags. I took this opportunity to freshen up and get changed, and this is what I chose. I am loving this skirt so much at the moment, and threw on a big jumper and new fave shoes

Similar version here, and this one I loveeee!

LFW Day 2: Outfit and Shows

Hey guys! So a bit of a medley post today, I want to share with you my LFW Day 2 outfit and my show highlights. First up the shows: I went to a few shows on Saturday, but my favourite were two presentations. Overall, I enjoyed the presentations more than the shows, as you have more chance to see the clothes up close!

First up was the Orla Keily presentation, the cutest thing ever! 

Sorry the pictures aren't the best quality, but I wanted to show you all some photos I took as opposed to the official press release ones. Although the clothes presented were not my style at all, I loved the presentation. The two girls in white overalls in the background were painting flowers on the glass throughout, as the models walked around the flowerpots each planting a flower as they went! It was a creative yet simple presentation, which didn't take the focus off the clothes, but had a little more going on than models stood on podiums and walking in turn. 

The second show I saw was Hemyca, which was one of my favourites! 

 The Hemyca clothes were much more to my taste! Presented in an amazing room which was full of projected videos of cityscapes, the models all stood on the surrounding balcony and then walked down to the level we were all stood in turn. It was soooo super busy to really had to get pictures when they came down, but I managed to get a couple of them up on the balcony! The clothes were focused on soft pastels with tailoring. SO many amazing pairs of trousers it was all too much excitment for me! 

My outfit for the day was another take on my whole navy look I wore a few weeks ago. I was a rubbish blogger and forgot to take any outfit photos, but thankfully the lovely Abbie from Fashion Tatt and Lindsey from Ropes of Holland have rescued me and let me use their streetstyle snaps! Thank you guys!

The best part of Saturday was definitely getting to meet loads of bloggers who blogs I love reading! In the morning I met Abbie for a coffee and a chin wag, and she was the lovliest ever. And then the gorgeous Luisa from A Stylish Something and Lindsey appeared! I was in fashion heaven with the most amazing company! Things got even better later on when Harry arrived for the weekend, so I have another outfit to from Saturday to share with you tomorrow. 

This black Joseph pair are on my wishlist, and this Stella McCartney pair are very similar indeed. This ASOS pair are a perfect budget option too.

LFW Day 1: Jamie Wei Huang

So I have decided to share with you my favourite show from each day! I will use the photos I took where I can, but for the most part you can't see much of the clothes in them, so I will be sharing the official press photos where I have to. Enjoy!

Jamie Wei Huang SS15 

The first show I saw turned out to be one of my favourites from Fashion Week. Titled 'Metaphysics', this collection is was packed with items I would gladly make room for in my wardrobe. Jamie has focused on sportswear (a trend that comes up almost every season in one way or another), using high quality materials to create interesting and dynamic silhouettes. My favourite piece are the green trousers on the top left picture, shocking as they're printed and not black, but they looked so incredible!

LFW Day 1: Levis 501s

So here is my first look from London Fashion Week! It was the most amazing five days ever, and I wish I could do it all over again. Once I've finished sharing my outfits, I plan to a post on my LFW experience, let me know if you would like to read that. 

On the first day I went to four shows in total, all of which I loved. My favourite was the first I saw, Jamie Wei Huang. I will definitely be sharing some photos of all the shows, sadly not any of the ones I took as they are more a study of the back of people's heads which doesn't make for an interesting read! All of the shows I went to on Thursday were with Fashion Scout at the Freemasons Hall, which is an incredible building and a great venue.

After the first show I had chance to snap this outfit. I went for something relatively casual and definitely not OTT.  I have been so into my Levi 501s recently, and I think these shoes work really well with them too. I added my All Saints knit to the mix, which is super simple but with an amazing high neck.

After this I headed to back to my hotel to unpack, and then straight back out to a couple more shows before heading out for dinner with some amazing blogging ladies! What a perfect Day 1!

these ones from Current Elliot are kind of similar, and this ASOS pair have great rips, but nothing compares to the 501s. 
Warehouse have a few similar ones in stock.
this River Island pair are soo nice!
