To celebrate London Fashion Week, Boden asked me to shoot my favourite pieces in my top London spots - so take a mini tour of London with me as I walk you through my favourite haunts.

Pulp Tooting - I love how Tooting has changed so much in my lifetime, yet it still embraces some old traditions - the indoor markets, Harringtons pie & mash shop...Pulp is a new juice bar which ushers in the new era of this fab part of South London - and the green juice is v good. For Tooting locals, I also highly recommend Mud for brunch (as good as Milk in Balham!). A classic boy fit shirt, skinny jeans and trench are my wardrobe go-tos for running errands in my neighbourhood.

Tate Britain

My favourite gallery in London. I love its calm vibe and mix of modern and traditional art. It's also the home of some amazing shows during London Fashion Week - my dream combination.
Relaxed denim and cashmere is the perfect off-duty style for weekend gallery trips (note the move towards wide leg jeans).

And this wall in particular - my first big shoot for Red was by this wall, styling Caroline Issa - by artist Ben Eine, and I now have his 'Change' print above my fireplace (bought from Nelly Duff). I am also IN LOVE with this jumpsuit - super soft and comfy and my kind of easy style, this is definitely something I'd wear whilst on set for work.

  1. Hi, I recently discovered your blog and I love your style. We have similar tastes so reading through it, it almost feels like having my own personal shopper (please keep these great finds and tips coming!) Those flats are amazing and would jazz up any outfit. Hmmm maybe a present to myself this March…!

    1. Aah, thanks so much! Yes, i think it's called 'easy' dressing - much more practical! oh yes the flats are so good - leopard is always a good investment!

  2. Hey Alex, I'm loving the simplicity of the first outfit. I wish I would live in London, so I could go and walk around Shoreditch every weekend.

    1. Thank you so much, I wish I lived closer to Shoreditch too - not quite so glamorous where I live! x

  3. Hi, Alexandra I agree with Michaela. Your first outfit is just awesome simple and classy. I had a white crystal clutch purse from Alysse Sterling that can go with your outfit. Just go through it.

  4. Those flats are so cute- I would find something to wear with them almost every week.

  5. Totally enjoyed this post. And, for what it’s worth, my opinion is that super curvy girls (like me) don’t look as good in skiny jeans because of the tapered leg. I’ve tried plenty on and just don’t like the way they look. I’m more of a straight-leg jeans kind of a girl, which I think makes me sleek AND curvy in the best way. It’s kind of freeing not feeling like you have to go for every trend or style out there, just because it’s popular.
