I can't believe I'm only just posting this outfit now, and can't believe I let these images of my LFW Day 2 look slip through the net! It was my favourite - absolute epic blogger fail! Anyway, my motto of the moment seems to be 'better late than never', so here goes. As seen in my Day One outfit post from LFW this season, I'm a sucker for culottes right now, so it was to be the item of choice for my second outfit as well! These beauties are from ASOS, as is the jumper. I wanted to convey a chic, laid back and simple look for the 2nd day I attended, and found this worked well with the grey, monochrome tones; adding interest with the French slogan and stripes. I picked up these little shoes from Primark on a last minute whim the day before, and found they worked perfectly with my chosen outfit (unfortunately my poor little feet did not agree! *ouch*).
Marsha (London Tall Girl) and I, found the most gorgeous location and perfect outfit photo opportunity, strolling back from a show on our way to Somerset House - how beautfiul are all these flowers? I loved the vintage bicycle propped up outside and the array of bric-a-brac visible in the window, I'm not entirely sure what the venue was but I think it was some kind of eatery. Anyway, we took full advantage of such a unique background for our photos and spent a good 20 minutes or so perfecting our shots!
Day 2 was great, I saw the beautiful Orla Kiely presentation, the Merit Award winner show and the Ethologie catwalk by Jasper Garvida. I had to cut my time in London short on that day however, to get back home and prepare for my Bubba's 1st Birthday party the next day, (crazy that I'm writing this a month on from that day - he's growing up soooo fast!) so I shall look forward to hopefully experiencing a slightly more leisurely time next season, rather than rushing around like a headless chicken trying to do too many things!
Apologies this post is so late, but I felt it's still relevant as monochrome is huge right now, so I wanted to get this outfit up nonetheless! What do you think of this look? Are you a monochrome lover or hater?
I'd love to know your thoughts! Don't forget you can also follow my style (& a few other bits and bobs) on Instagram, Twitter & Facebook x
