Style: London Fashion Week Day 2 SS1309:45:00
I have so much to write about London Fashion Week, I'm not sure where to begin! With the variety of show and events I've been too, it's hard to know where to start! I thought I'd start off the collection of posts with my first outfit. I'll set the scene from there...
It was sods law I had planned rich and dark coloured ensembles, and the sun was out. The only answer was that it was classic British weather, I'd even come prepared with an umbrella in case the heavens opened! Typical. Saying that, I adored everything about this daytime look and believe it or not wasn't too hot in it.
I'm pleased I used inspiration from my previous blog post with this outfit. The leggings were a big hit, and extremely comfy. Unlike many looks I saw at London Fashion Week I aimed for comfort, as I knew I was going to be on my feet all day.
I honestly feel these leggings were the best £25.00 I've spent in a long time. They were interesting, very 'now' and even better (unlike some leggings you can get) didn't show any underwear! Always a happy bonus. I decided to team them with suede wedges because, 1. I knew I was going to be walking around all day, so didn't want aching feet and 2. wedges are an ideal candidate for giving height, but not too much.
With the top, I did initially struggle but decided to layer two simple vest tops. My necklace and leggings were already doing the talking with the outfit so I went quite simple with everything else. I left my make up simple as well, with a rich lipstick colour, but I opted for a smokey eye creation to keep the warmth in my look.
