Rainy start to LFW…
I’m normally really good at carefully planning my outfits but despite that and living in the UK for 18 years, I did not prepare for rain! So while New York enjoyed a sunny September, fall has truly arrived in London with a wet start to LFW.
Luckily I packed this Zayan The Label coat as a precaution and managed to completely switch my original outfit to the one you see above. Unplanned, but hey it worked out! I love the pretty bird embroidery and the furry pockets add a bit of texture to the look. I decided to style it with a Tommy Hilfiger nautical shirt that I bought in New York and added my fave new pair of jeans.
Now to the best part – the shoes! I ordered these boots a few days before arriving in London and they were one of those ‘love at first sight’ purchases. From the contrast black tip to the metallic heel and lace up detail on the back, these boots just had to be in my wardrobe! The leather is extremely soft making them one of the most comfortable shoes I owe – plus they also look great with a tulle skirt as you can see here styled by Holly from Petite Flower Presents. Her looks are always beautifully unique and it was a real pleasure to meet her in New York so make sure to check out her page!
One of the highlights of Day 1 was catching up with Sabrina from Clutch & Carry On! It is always more fun hanging out with friends during the fashion month so you’ll be seeing more of this beauty next week.
