The L.K. Bennett Social Skirt

Silk skirt: £250, LK Bennett. Heels: £225, LK Bennett. Cashmere jumper (mens): £79, Marks & Spencer. Clutch: L.K. Bennett (old). Photographs: Ella Sadika
*London Fashion Week klaxon*. You'll be pleased to know I'm not actually around for LFW this season - as you are reading this I am away on a shoot in Lisbon. Lucky for me I get some sunshine, and lucky for you as you don't get bombarded with too many LFW posts...

Or maybe a few. When L.K. Bennett asked me to style up their 'Social Skirt' - the Kensal floral - in my way, I jumped at the chance because a) I love a full skirt and b) it gave me fashionable content to upload for LFW whilst I was away on a shoot probably in jeans, trainers and no make-up (as a blogger, you have to consider these things!).

It's social for a few reasons - we live in such a social world these days this is how most of us attain information. But also L.K. Bennett's midi skirt is fast becoming one of those pieces that they're known for - it's synonymous with the brand - and when Style Icons like Caroline Issa are wearing them to Fashion Week, you know it's kind of a big deal.

It's quite unusual for a bit of a tomboy like myself to wear a midi skirt but I am often seen wearing them - I love how they make me feel that little bit more dressy. And by wearing with my current favourite (mens - size S) cashmere slouchy jumper brings it back to more my style.

It has also come at a good time as I was worrying about what to wear for my London Fashion Weekend talk on 27th September - especially after discussing outfits with Erica from The Edited (who will be there with me) - and we were almost going to wear the same thing!! So, this skirt answers everything - smart enough to look 'wow' but could also be dressed down with a shirt and some fab flats (I'm thinking lace-up flats as it will be a long day).

But we should probably talk about the shoes...they've already had a lot of love on instagram - and the piano key monochrome looks fab with everything - from skinny jeans to a full skirt. The heel height is actually pretty good for walking, too (but they also come in a slightly lower heel - which are cheaper, too, here).

Pretending I live here
