Levi's 501's (DIY crop)* | Topshop slingbacks

I think this may be one of my most loved fashion week outfits to date. If you caught my takeover on the Dorothy Perkins Instagram you'll know I'm wearing some gorgeous new pieces from their SS16 collection. So new in fact, they aren't actually on the website yet! Always one for a good bit of lace, I'm obsessed with the detail on this shirt. Perfect for spring summer, this looks gorgeous alone or layered under other pieces like I have. I feel like this faux suede gilet (also from the new collection) is it's match made in heaven. With a vintage trench and jeans and a pair of killer (literally, ow) heels, I was good to go.

I can't remember the last time London Fashion Week actually started with a bit of sunshine. For the passed few seasons it's the first day of fashion week has been all about huddling under an umbrella and trying our best not to skid on the wet cobbles. So, to head out on Friday morning into the bright sunshine was pretty bloody delightful. To kick off, it was breakfast with Kurt Geiger to preview their new SS16 collection (from that amazing Karlie Kloss campaign) in their Covent Garden store. Munching on some delicious breakfast canapés and sipping almond milk lattes, I had a lovely morning catching up with some blogger friends and browsing through the new pieces. I chose this pair to take away with me and my blister-ridden feet were so thankful to have them on me at the end of the day.

I then headed over to Soho for a coffee with Lizzy before heading to the Threefloor presentation. This was actually one of my favoruites this season. As much as I love a pair of ripped jeans and a leather jacket, there's something about flirty, feminine pieces that just have me weak at the knees. White walls and fresh foliage made for a modern Alice In Wonderland vibe (remind me I need a room in my future house like this) whilst models clad in lace, pleats, were fit for any fairy tale. Red appliquéd flowers and sweetheart necklines added a Queen of Hearts air to the collection whilst the darker, sheer detailed pieces provided a mystical elegance.

I then spent a couple of hours at The Apartment. It was my first time attending this season and I have to say the whole set up was pretty spectacular. From a blow dry bar provided by the experts at Mark Hill to manicures, Krispy Kreme doughnuts and an unlimited pretty pick'n'mix buffet it was a great little haven amongst the madness of London Fashion Week. There was even fresh flowers and a variety of tiles outside to help capture those perfect #fwis shots! After a hair re-fresh and recharge of batteries (both mine and my iPhone's) it was time for my final shows.

At the Paul Costello show I was greeted with a lovely ice-cold glass of champagne as I was shown to my seat. It was my first time seeing this designer so was excited to see what was in store and the show did not disappoint. Plaid and checks come around quite often during the AW season but I absolutely loved the 'rock chick' vibes from this collection. Everything was super fierce, from the model's hair and make-up to the music. I'm not usually one for punk-y trends but I couldn't get enough of the edgy looks juxtaposed with sheer flirty pieces and feminine silhouettes.

Unfortunately, after a couple of drinks during the day, this is when I start to feel a bit unwell. I was absolutely gutted to have missed the Charlotte Simone presentation on Friday and from what pictures I saw it looked amazing. Annoyingly, I've had the worse kidney infection come on this weekend, hence why I only made it part way through day two. So, instead of today's shows it's been a duvet day filled with antibiotics and Netflix. I've missed some of my favourtie designers and it's the first season in three years I haven't completed properly -  safe to say I'm feeling pretty sorry for myself, but sometimes you just gotta follow the doc's orders. Stay tuned for tomorrow's look!
