So, I think after a long time of moaning like a tit professing my love/hate feelings for fashion week, I’ve finally figured this thing out. I think after seasons of attending show after presentation after presentation after show, and a season of just chilling at The Apartment  – i.e last season, in the roaring sunshine, and it was bloody glorious – I’ve finally worked out that doing fashion week right, means doing the kinda fashion week for you. My kind involves only going to shows that I really love and want to go to (Holly Fulton and Felder Felder topped this season’s list), going to events that I really want to go to (yo Kurt Geiger breakfast with all of my gal pals, I’m looking at you), and hanging out with my good blogging friends at The Apartment. Which I did a lot of and I have to say, it was by far my favourite part of LFW.
… Much to the delight of the poor designers who work tirelessly for months on their collections just for me to prefer eating sweet potato fries and drinking all the lattes with the girls discussing blogging, boys and stuff that I wouldn’t dare mention on these parts. 
LOL… Soz designers.

So yes, LFW was more chilled for me this season and I think this reflected in my outfit choices because I really didn’t worry about what I was going to wear, choosing instead to opt for my basic bitch standard “Oh shit, I need to look chic but also want to be comfy AF” outfit and decided to base this around my new Boden trench coat which I am beyond obsessed with. (And I hope you are too because it’ll be popping up a lot more around here).

Said babe-in trench. There is genuinely nothing that I don’t love about this trench coat. From the classic stone colour (which goes with absolutely everything!), the tortoiseshell buttons, the pink inner lining – not displayed because I looked ever so slightly like a hooker inviting you in when I tried to pose for that – and the gentle structure which is just so classic and chic but also so comfy to wear too. I cannot say enough good things and would highly recommend investing in the beautiful Boden Abingdon Trench [insert hands up/”hallelujah”/heart eye’d emojis here].

The bag. Yes, I reused the Radley Elgin from Day 1 and no I’m totally not sorry. The most beautifully structured black handbag which holds a surprising amount but also looks very neat and compact. The leather is dreamy and the lining perfect, basically, combined with the trench and white shirt, I feel chic AF.

Pulling the whole look together with an item that is so unlike me in the form of this neck tie/neckerchief/[insert your own choice of word for an item that makes you look like a Texan, western throwback]. Yes, I look ever so slightly like Woody from Toy story but I love that this added a little bit of an edge to what would probably have been quite a uniform look otherwise. LOL, edgy? [insert cry laughter emoji here].

Finishing off with the boots that I’ve christened my “Oh my god you look really smart and lovely but are also comfortable, can we please get married?” boots. In short – and un-eloquently – I bloody love ’em!

Trench coat: Boden
Trousers: River Island
Boyfriend Shirt: ASOS
Neck tie: Topshop
Boots: River Island 
And that brings Day 2 to a close. Day 2 was a lot of fun with the Ones to Watch show, the beautiful Holly Fulton Show, and lots of chill time at The Apartment with my favourite ladies. I did actually do another day of LFW however I may save that for another time as I firstly don’t want to bore you to death, and secondly, it’s become my go to “meetings/event” look which I’m saving for a little feature further down the line.
So that’s LFW wrapped up, I’d love to know what you thought of the outfit? If you went down to LFW, what was your favourite part? I always love hearing your thoughts!
As always, thanks so much for reading!

    You look divine babe. I need that Boden trench in my life. I couldn't do LFW this year because of work/ family member is unwell and I missed Paris Haute Couture (first time I was invited so I might have cried) so am definitely going next year. I think you are so right about making the week work for you and it sounds like you've had an amazing time. Hope we get to meet one day xx

    • Thanks so much lovely, and I'm so sorry to hear about your family member, hope they get better soon! Oh no, such a shame about paris, but there's always next season <3

    I love this trench, I've been after a good one for a while since my last one shrunk in the wash (or I ate too much… funny how lots of my stuff seems to be shrinking lately…)
    As usual you look fantastic ๐Ÿ™‚

    Personally I also think that when there are the doubts, it's better to choose classic, but chic items, like your new trench coat ๐Ÿ™‚ It looks like it has divine quality and it's timless, great choice, my dear ๐Ÿ˜‰

  29. Your trench is so classic! I love it with the bag and scarf

  30. i totally love your trench coat, how I wish I would be able to wear something like that so classy! ๐Ÿ™‚

  31. I love this trench coat! It looks lovely on you! I think this is a really good LFW outfit, as like you said you look comfy and chic without going over the top and stressing yourself out or being uncomfortable during the long days ๐Ÿ™‚ You look lovely! ๐Ÿ™‚ xx

  32. Love your trnch coat! I still haven't got one, need to change that… ๐Ÿ™‚


  33. THe coat, the Bag, the shoes! okay, I really love this ensemble! When will I'd be able to wear that kind of coat here in our country? I would really love to wear coats and boots but as much as I'd love to, the weather won't let me. Tropical country like Philippines won't let me wear this ensemble. Maybe if I'd go in a vacation I will probably, ๐Ÿ™‚ So lovely dear! ๐Ÿ™‚

    How To Get Ex Girlfriend Back When She Is Dating Another Guy Urgent Love spell That Work Fast? my girlfriend and i have been getting into little arguments which then later escalate. a lot of which are my fault but i never thought i would lose her because we are in love. she told me yesterday that she loves me but she is done. that the fights keep hurting her too much.i canโ€™t believe i hurt her like that and would love nothing more than another chance to prove to her and myself that i will cut out my insecurities that Iโ€™ve brought into this relationship. It wasnโ€™t until i lost her that my eyes really opened in what i was doing. i asked for another chance and she said she cannot do that right now. i asked if she is done with my forever and she said she doesnโ€™t know what will happen down the road but right now she needs space. Iโ€™m lost, confused, heart broken. i feel like itโ€™s all my fault and i donโ€™t want to lose her, all she told me was that the relationship is over, she blocked me on whatsapp. i went no contact. she unblock me. i still maintain no contact she blocked me again. 1 week of no contact. will she come back? we were very close. she may not be the best looking girl. but i love her. now i begged her to consider me but sheโ€™s did listen, she left and i was frustrated, i began searching for help and answers, then i heard about a man that can cast a spell to remind her of all the things we have been through together, at first I was scared then i decided to give it a try, and like magic my girlfriend came back, apology and begging for forgiveness, thanks to this man, Iโ€™m posting this to help people with similar issues. you can contact him for help too. or view his page on…. his whatsapp number: +2348133873774 or his gmail:…
