LFW Day 1: High Street Challenge


It's London Fashion Week, which means I am consumed with fashion: what's in fashion, what's not, who are the up-and-coming designers...and more importantly: what the hell do I wear?! So I decided, this fashion week, to set myself the task of only wearing clothes from the High Street. It's not exactly hard, as the number of designer clothes I own I can count on one hand. However, it is a challenge. I hope I do you proud.

Coat, Zara, Shirt, gap, Jeans, Topshop, Watch, Gc, boots, Office, Bag, Theory
I've gone for classics with a twist and intermixed my boyish classics with a hint of neon and unexpected details. The socks (just seen under my rolled up jeans) are a graphic Marni-esque print, from H&M.

The neon bag is my favourite of the season from Theysken's Theory. I'm allowed one show-stopper, right?! It's a real 'classics' store, I only have a few things but they have lasted really well.

 My Fashion Week essentials:
  • Blackberry
  • Oyster card
  • Smith's lipbalm
  • MAC lipstick in 'Vegas Volt'
  • Glasses cleaning cloth
  • iPod
  • Smythson Panama notebook

Bracelets can really lift an outfit, I love these from Dannijo

  1. Love your outfit, may I ask what self tan (if any) you are wearing as it looks so natural?
    Thanks

    1. Thanks! I am so glad someone asked, want to do a whole post on fake tan, as I always use it but don't think I 'look' like I do! I use either Decleor or Clarins. I don't think you should scrimp. These are quite strong, so you only need to apply once or maybe twice a week.
