I guess there is a first time for everything which is why I’m doing my first outfit blog post!!! I really appreciate the blog views and hits I’m receiving at the moment and want to thank everyone for the support just don’t forget to like my Facebook and Twitter page ;-))
Recently more people have asked more about ME as a blogger and I guess it’s a big step but it’s about time I stopped hiding from behind my laptop!
This season I saw a lovely array of outfits and met some wonderful people as well as catching up with familiar faces… But I felt as though there was a slight feeling of “over-effort” made for London Fashion Week. What do I mean? I (personally) felt as though people came out for Fashion Week wearing things they would probably never be caught dead in on their day to day.. so instead of being dressed head to toe in the usual PR giveaways (that I admit I do like from time to time) I decided to high street the couture pave ways and this is what I wore…
I had come from work to view the evening catwalk shows so I needed to find an outfit that was fast to change into and pretty much spoke for itself which is why I went for the ASOS Embellished All Over Jewelled Jumper (discontinued) and paired it along some vintage black super skinny jeans I had bought a while ago. I actually saw this jumper on ChloeDigital during another fashion event and I loved it so much that went to buy it… unfortunately by that time it was sold out and a couple of months later I saw it free on ASOS and went for the impulse buy! The jumper cost £80 and is really lovely as it features many gems and sequins giving it a really rich, sparkly texture. My only word of advice is to never wear a vest underneath it as you will boil over and be very careful when washing it!!!
During day 2, I came out of my shell and wore neon! It really isn’t something that I wear often but I thought it would be great to experiment with it as I’ve seen the bright neon’s on popping on the street and wanted to know if I could pull it off! The neon knit I wore was a crop top for Topshop. It’s actually very comfortable to wear and kept me much warmer then I had expected. To tone down the bright neon pink I decided to match it with an ASOS monochrome print pencil skirt. (My one doesn’t seem to be in stock but click here for an alternative). I pulled it much higher than usual so it ended up becoming a mini but I think crop tops with high wasted maxi or midi skirts could be the way forward this summer. I bought the skirt recently so I’m surprised that I can’t find the link although I have found two great alternative’s (also from ASOS) should you ever wish to mix up neon with monochrome. If neon isn’t quite your thing I’d recommend going for a “vibrant blue”.
Day 3 was the day that I did some street style photography so I have to keep comfortable. I wore an ASOS print dress (once again discontinued!!) along with a vibrant deep knit jumper from New Look to keep me warm. I traditionally am known for wearing block colour clothes and I do like to feel as though I am experimenting with my clothes which is why I went for a print! The dress itself is very figure hugging which is why I decided to casual it down with a chunky knit jumper.
