Just a quick post this afternoon because as you read this I’ll be in London, preparing to go to the Cosmo Blog Awards. It’s set to be quite the event and hopefully I’ll have something exciting to share with you when I get back – keep your fingers crossed please!!
In the meantime, it seemed like an opportune moment to share my ‘other’ London Fashion Week Outfit – Day 1. (What I wore on Day 2)
Dress (seen as skirt) Zara // Jumper – Whistles // Heels – Nine West // Bag – Mulberry //
I always find ‘dressing for London’ tricky. That may sound odd, but every time I’m there, I’m on a mad dash to get as much done as humanly possible. I usually have appointments, often an evening engagement and might travel down and/or up on the train on the day so versatility is key, never mind the fashion fear of having to look representative of the stylish life I aspire to share with you all. It’s a complete nightmare involving heels, cool clothes to avoid getting sweaty on the train/tube, emergency flats and usually a hefty dose of compromise.
This was one such compromise although it’s also a great reminder to utilise your summer outfits over again as layered items for Autumn where appropriate. I still haven’t gotten over my love for this digital print dress (seen here and here before,) and the weather was lovely enough to allow me to wear summery styles. That said, I wanted to keep it a bit more muted to lend the dress-as-a-skirt to autumn. Enter my favourite jumper right now, my Whistles (did I mention they have 25% off right now?) ‘Angel’ jumper – Navy, slouchy, and scattered with sequins, it looks great with everything from jeans to fancy skirts like this one.
Finished with my lilac sky high heels, I was ready for Any Other Party.
Big thanks to Gemma for taking the pics 🙂
