Autumn? CHECK!


The wether has FINALLY taken that beautifully crisp turn and I am LOVING it!
Buttoned up coats and thick-knit snoods.. EEEK!


This checked jumper is a new addition to my wardrobe and I know it's going to do me perfectly right the way through this season.
One of my favourite prints for Autumn is checks, but I love the understated take on this jumper.

NEW IN - REISS TOPAZ LEATHER JACKET

I've been a naughty girl. A very naughty little shopper! 
What started as an innocent walk through Reiss, turned into a major card damaging trip out of Reiss.


As hard as I tried to put on my blinkers, this beautiful leather jacket shone through!! And I could not resist! I've been driving myself MAD trying to find the perfect leather jacket for the past few months, and just when I'd given up hope.. This came along! 


It's the most luxurious piece I've ever had the pleasure of putting in my wardrobe. The leather is beautifully soft, and the stunning burgundy quilted lining is just the cherry on top!
There's nothing I could fault or want to change, I have found the one. And I'm madly in love.


And yes, it is a steep purchase. But you know what.. If you work hard, treat hard! It doesn't happen very often with me, and I'm happy as hell that I have such a classic, yet statement piece I can rock for years to come! I love it!!!

Somerset House

As Paris Fashion Week drew to a beautiful close yesterday, in turn so did the amazing month of fashion shows.. And so today's post is a bit of a flashback to my day spent at London Fashion Week. 
And although it was a bit of a flying visit (partly due to a jam packed schedule, and even more so; due to the fact that I spilled coffee right down the front of my white T, 2 minutes after taking these photos!!) it really was a day full of inspiration!


Somerset house is a visit so worth whole making whatever time of the year, but at fashion week especially it's a must! Even if you don't manage to get any tickets for the shows, it's the perfect spot to soak up some of the best street style, and you never know, spot a few fellow blogger friends!



I decided to go for a pretty basic look. White V Neck, trusty black skinnies, and simple black heels.
But with these cute ear cuffs. I love the look of loads of earrings in one ear!

I'm looking forward to next years LFW already! I'm going for the whole week!

Valentin Yudashkin '15


Valentin Yudashkin is a designer that up until this season, I had honestly never heard of before..
Part of the reason I love the varied fashion weeks so much, is that you get the chance to fall in love with new designers. Whether they're new on the scene, or just new to us.

Valentin is probably one of my favourites from this PFW, this collection; Full of sheer florals.. Perfect contrasts from strong structured pieces, to elegant soft styles.. And the most beautiful line up of fresh faces, minimally made up models! 

Here are my favourite looks from the Spring 15' Ready To Wear Collection..

You've Missed A Few..

What a GORGEOUS day in Notting Hill!

I can't quite make my mind up on whether I'm glad of these few extended summery days, or not. Because truthfully, I'm pining for the day that I can vacuum pack my summer wardrobe and stuff it under the bed until next year! The thought of thick snoods and fluffy jumpers makes me so excited! But for now I guess you just gotta roll with it.


Today's look is back to monochrome. And in an attempt to make it look a little less school uniform-y.. (Is it just me who feels like I'm dressed for sixth form when I wear a white shirt??) I tried out this style trick, it's one we've all seen from last season. But to stop it from being too full on, because I know all to well I don't have the abs to pull it off properly.. I've teamed the shirt with a high waist pair of black skinnies. Minimal stomach exposure.



Although I did have to ask myself a few times throughout the day; "Do I look like I've just miss a few buttons getting dressed this morning?" I kinda like the effect of not fully buttoning up. And on a hot day like today that added breeze is never a bad thing ;)
