Keeping it simple

Today's post is a snappy one. I just wanted to check in and pop up one outfit that I can't get enough of at the moment. It must be all the bright colours you can see that makes it so desirable to me! Yes, clearly it's that.

My hybrid jumper x shirt is by an incredible designer named Sacai. Japanese and so talented, I'm so sold. My boyfriend introduced me to the brand as he works for Nike and Sacai have an unreal Nike collaboration that is also just perfect.
I'm such a sucker for keeping it casual, and I'm not about to change any time soon. These COS trousers are perfectly tailored but still give off a relaxed vibe, kind of like "I'm not trying too hard, but actually I've been planning this outfit for 3 hours".

These trainers are my new pride and joy, all the way from the US, Opening Ceremony just smash it for me. Minimal but cool and so different to anything on the high street. And, they're in the sale, ship to the UK within 5 days. Joy!

Shop my look:

Jumper x shirt: Sacai
Cropped box trousers: COS
Trainers: Opening Ceremony
Bag: Aspinal of London via My bag
Bracelets: Missoma 

Thank you so much for reading and I hope you're having a great start to the week.
As always, I would love to read your feedback!

Dear Frances

During London Fashion Week this season I was lucky enough to visit the Dear Frances pop up showroom so I could get a peep at whats to come for SS16. I met Jane and her husband at the most beautiful of locations, in a top floor apartment that was filled with light and a beautiful presentation of the collection. I even had a great cup of tea!

The showroom brimmed with a beautifully simple aesthetic and scattered dried flowers which was such a lovely touch. Jane is the designer and she's Sydney born- I could listen to her talk for hours! Jane studied in London then undertook an internship in Italy and that's where these incredible shoes are now made using the finest leathers. The SS16 collection is named after female friends and family which I absolutely love, and they all chose the styles they were named after which means, Jane knows their taste inside out!

The way the lookbook was shot for the SS16 campaign is amazing, simple and still life, but able to capture the luxury of each shoe.

I'm so excited for SS16 to roll around so I can get my hands on some mules! Make sure you check out the Dear Frances Instagram feed- it's something to behold.

Snakeskin notes with Kurt Geiger

As the weather cools down and the heavens open, it gives people like us a chance to do what we like to do best....layer. I headed out for lunch with one of my best pals, Lauren (find her gorgeous feed on Instagram @girlstolelondon) and of course it poured down on my day off. Not to worry, we had the most incredible Vietnamese lunch which took it all away. 

Kurt Geiger are a firm favourite of mine, especially since my mum could potentially set up her own KG store with the volume of pairs of KG she owns! So when I had the opportunity to work along side them, I may have been more than a little excited. I was asked to choose from their new season boots collection and as soon as I laid eyes on this snake print pair, that was it. Now, you know you'll never catch me in anything that can be likened to a rainbow or a unicorn but, I am happy with a print, as long as said print is muted and isn't shouting "I'M A GIRL".
Beautifully comfortable too, and a good mid heel to take you through a day of shopping.

I'm just going to mention my Anya Hindmarch bag, ever so briefly. I've never owned such a beautiful luxury handbag before so when my other half popped home with it, it would be ok to assume I did a little dance. It's so incredibly well made and just looks wonderful with everything! It's sold out online, but still available in some stores. 

Shop my look:
Kurt Geiger snake print boots
Anya Hindmarch smiley bag
Bethnals jeans
ASOS White collection cashmere jumper
Ganni jacket (cream sold out)

Thank you so much for reading and have a wonderful rest of the week.

Fashion Week: Missoma & a little red dress

A little red dress isn't something I'd ordinarily be found in, but when COS design a dress, in colour, so perfectly, how do you expect me to resist? Neoprene, but not too heavy, oversized, clean lines and a deep V neck- the deep V neck had me because when you're not a 'boob' girl, it works really well.
I dressed my LRD (Little Red Dress) up with my trusty Stans, and I felt pretty good about how the look pulled together. The feel of the dress would change wildly if you popped on some heels with it and I am not about the life of heels.

This is what I wore over London Fashion Week (which feels like forever ago now). So I was *the* comfiest person. 
The wonderful Marisa, Creative Director and Founder of Missoma jewellery was kind enough to send me out a few pieces just in time to show off during LFW. I cannot tell you how excited and inspired I feel by Missoma. If you haven't already had a look online, go there, right now. The beautiful, trend fitting pieces that are made from the most incredible materials (even diamond...) make me so happy! They have recently lunched an emoji style range which is literally the best thing I've seen in a while and not only are they gold, they contain diamond pave too. Joy!

Pieces I wore:
Tiny Horn Necklace in gold
Funny Face bracelet with diamond pave
Gold Evil Eye charm bracelet

My new 'it' bag. Nobody else's 'it' bag, but mine. Another COS piece c/o my style driven boyfriend. My friends have dubbed it as 'Lindsey in bag form' which I would heavily agree with, just to clarify, not the rigid square design but the clean lines and minimalistic feel.

I feel really at home in this outfit and it was so simple to put together. You've just got to know your body type and go for what makes you feel incredible. 

Shop my COS pieces:
Structured leather backpack
V neck scuba dress

*On a side note, I really would love to know what it is you like to see here on my blog so I can do more of it for you, in a more consistent way. All feedback would be wonderful!

Thank you so much for reading!

Have a wonderful week.
