LFW Day 2: Outfit and Shows

Hey guys! So a bit of a medley post today, I want to share with you my LFW Day 2 outfit and my show highlights. First up the shows: I went to a few shows on Saturday, but my favourite were two presentations. Overall, I enjoyed the presentations more than the shows, as you have more chance to see the clothes up close!

First up was the Orla Keily presentation, the cutest thing ever! 

Sorry the pictures aren't the best quality, but I wanted to show you all some photos I took as opposed to the official press release ones. Although the clothes presented were not my style at all, I loved the presentation. The two girls in white overalls in the background were painting flowers on the glass throughout, as the models walked around the flowerpots each planting a flower as they went! It was a creative yet simple presentation, which didn't take the focus off the clothes, but had a little more going on than models stood on podiums and walking in turn. 

The second show I saw was Hemyca, which was one of my favourites! 

 The Hemyca clothes were much more to my taste! Presented in an amazing room which was full of projected videos of cityscapes, the models all stood on the surrounding balcony and then walked down to the level we were all stood in turn. It was soooo super busy to really had to get pictures when they came down, but I managed to get a couple of them up on the balcony! The clothes were focused on soft pastels with tailoring. SO many amazing pairs of trousers it was all too much excitment for me! 

My outfit for the day was another take on my whole navy look I wore a few weeks ago. I was a rubbish blogger and forgot to take any outfit photos, but thankfully the lovely Abbie from Fashion Tatt and Lindsey from Ropes of Holland have rescued me and let me use their streetstyle snaps! Thank you guys!

The best part of Saturday was definitely getting to meet loads of bloggers who blogs I love reading! In the morning I met Abbie for a coffee and a chin wag, and she was the lovliest ever. And then the gorgeous Luisa from A Stylish Something and Lindsey appeared! I was in fashion heaven with the most amazing company! Things got even better later on when Harry arrived for the weekend, so I have another outfit to from Saturday to share with you tomorrow. 

This black Joseph pair are on my wishlist, and this Stella McCartney pair are very similar indeed. This ASOS pair are a perfect budget option too.

LFW Day 1: Jamie Wei Huang

So I have decided to share with you my favourite show from each day! I will use the photos I took where I can, but for the most part you can't see much of the clothes in them, so I will be sharing the official press photos where I have to. Enjoy!

Jamie Wei Huang SS15 

The first show I saw turned out to be one of my favourites from Fashion Week. Titled 'Metaphysics', this collection is was packed with items I would gladly make room for in my wardrobe. Jamie has focused on sportswear (a trend that comes up almost every season in one way or another), using high quality materials to create interesting and dynamic silhouettes. My favourite piece are the green trousers on the top left picture, shocking as they're printed and not black, but they looked so incredible!

LFW Day 1: Levis 501s

So here is my first look from London Fashion Week! It was the most amazing five days ever, and I wish I could do it all over again. Once I've finished sharing my outfits, I plan to a post on my LFW experience, let me know if you would like to read that. 

On the first day I went to four shows in total, all of which I loved. My favourite was the first I saw, Jamie Wei Huang. I will definitely be sharing some photos of all the shows, sadly not any of the ones I took as they are more a study of the back of people's heads which doesn't make for an interesting read! All of the shows I went to on Thursday were with Fashion Scout at the Freemasons Hall, which is an incredible building and a great venue.

After the first show I had chance to snap this outfit. I went for something relatively casual and definitely not OTT.  I have been so into my Levi 501s recently, and I think these shoes work really well with them too. I added my All Saints knit to the mix, which is super simple but with an amazing high neck.

After this I headed to back to my hotel to unpack, and then straight back out to a couple more shows before heading out for dinner with some amazing blogging ladies! What a perfect Day 1!

these ones from Current Elliot are kind of similar, and this ASOS pair have great rips, but nothing compares to the 501s. 
Warehouse have a few similar ones in stock.
this River Island pair are soo nice!

My LFW Make-Up

 Ohhhh a beauty post!!! Thought I would give one a go, and what a better time than to kick off my London Fashion Week posts. It's been the best few days ever and I can't wait to share my outfits with you guys. 

I do wear a lot of make up but I always try to keep it looking relatively natural. I am really bad for touching my face throughout the day, so when I have a long day I come back home almost bare faced! Keeping my foundation a lighter coverage stops me from looking to patchy when this happens... just pale and tired instead!! 

This is the make up I have been wearing almost every day throughout LFW. I am going to film a haul video soon and will discuss some of my new make up products then, so I won't go into too much detail now. But here are the basics: I like a light-medium coverage foundation, and a heavier coverage concealer for any dark circles or blemishes. I use a light contour and peach coloured blush, and occasionally (but not here) go wild and use a highlighter too! I always fill in my eyebrows, no matter how natural I am going. I love copper and brown shades of eyeshadows, which I just wore with mascara here. Finally lips: I usually just use lip balm (Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream is the best product for dry lips), as I always forget to reapply lippy throughout the day, so I usually never bother in the first place!!

New York: Iconic

While in New York I wanted to get some photos that looked iconically 'New York' without being too touristy. For me, three things come to mind when I think of New York: tall buildings, yellow taxis, and endless zebra crossing at every block. It's hard to get an idea of how tall the buildings are in outfit pictures without all the photos also pointing right up my nose, so that left the other two. We picked a quiet(ish) crossing and a dimming light to really get the vibe and atmosphere of New York. 

I am loving this pair with the ripped knee too!
Similar one here from ASOS, and for a great oversized look menswear is always perfect for a shirt!
Loviiing the Bobbi Cross Vamp Sandals from Whistles, if it wasn't Autumn I would definitely be snapping these up! 
Budget option here, also Whistles.
