So this weekend bright and early I headed down to London for LFW! After experiencing LFW in February I knew that I had to go back and do more this time. I am a massive fan of London as it is and any excuse will keep me flocking back until I can make the move to the big smoke. This weekend was so jam packed that I unfortunately missed a couple of shows as there was just so much to cram in! Anyway, I still had the most amazing time, I've split it up into the Saturday and Sunday for blog posts and I forewarn you that it's a very picture heavy post! I thought I would start off with what I wore and then what I got up to on day 2 at LFW!
Blanket cape - ASOS
Shirt - New Look
Necklace - Ebay
Jeans - Primark (DIY rips)
Brogues - Red Herring
Bag - Ted Baker
I absolutely loved what I wore if I do say so myself! But in hindsight a blanket cape in about 20 degrees heat was not my smartest idea!! I was SO hot and almost close to fainting on the tube, but all in the name of fashion huh? I wore my new brogues which also wasn't the best idea, my feet now resemble a huge blister! I loved walking into Somerset house though, it's crazy the amount of people that just start taking photos of you, the atmosphere was fab and it goes without saying that it is the best place to people watch and gain fashion inspiration from others. Overall the outfit was a hit and the blanket cape will be ideal for colder temperatures anyway.
The first event of the day was the Aspinal of London LFW event in the House of Fraser on Oxford street. I loved the owl balloons that were scattered everywhere around the store, with another 2,000 to be set off in the streets of London, all containing vouchers amounting to various things to be redeemed against the Aspinal of London range.
The lovely CEO of Aspinal of London greeted us all and handed us over to the gorgeous girls who are Ella Gregory and Laura Jackson chatting all things fashion, blogging and about the fashion industry.
I had such a lovely time and it was amazing to be able to speak to them as well. Each guest also got given a lovely goody bag with an owl balloon and Aspinal Of London heart keyring. We each also had street style pictures taken of us and the one with the most likes on their Facebook page wins a bag from their new range ooo!
The next stop was Somerset house. Even though I came up for a show in Feb I never actually visited Somerset house so I was like a child at Christmas! So overhwhelmed by the outrageous outfits, the photographers and the general atmosphere. Somerset house is just the perfect setting, it goes without saying that its just fab for outfit pictures too, the buildings are so pristine and clean!
I of course had my obligatory photo in front of this!
Snapping a bit of street style at Somerset house!
As I was leaving I bumped into Megan Ellaby ahh! She was one of the first fashion blogs I ever followed and I absolutely adore her style. Megan was so so lovely, I also met a few other bloggers on the weekend that I definitely fangirled at too! It's so weird meeting bigger bloggers as I feel like I know them by living their lives through their blogs and Instagram, am I the only one who feels like this?! haha.We then headed down to the Shopcade LFW pop up store in Covent Garden.
Any event that has Lola's cupcakes is a favourite of mine mmmSuch gorgeous furs and glitters from Gemma Goldstone, I love discovering new boutiques and unique clothing stores like this!
The cutest and fluffiest accessoreies from Amelia Jane London, I NEED one of the fluffy bobble hats!
After rushing around all day it was definitely time for a sugar hit. I adore the chain coffee shops as much as the next person but in London I love discovering cute, unique cafes and I was too happy to stumble upon the Primrose Bakery situated in Covent Garden.
Cupcakes seem to be my new favourite thing at the moment, so many delicious flavours to pick from.
I went for a carrot cake one and James got a malteaser cupcake, they were seriously SO good. If you ever find yourself in London I fully recommend a visit, you will not be disappointed. I already cant wait to head back again sometime soon..
A quick walk down to embankment and we stumbled across a Snog double decker!! Yes, you heard right, you could line up for a frozen yoghurt and head upstairs to sit in the bus whilst overlooking the thames. Why does London have the best stuff ever?!
This made me laugh far more than it should have..
We then stumbled upon an amazing carnival themed set up, I'm not too sure what it was all in aid of but everything was set around a carnival,pretty cool!
Love shack baby yeahhh
At first glance I thought this was your average carousel.. It's actually a bar with tables which are the horses.
It doesn't matter how many times I visit London, this will always be my favourite view.
One last picture to top the most amazing Saturday spent in London. Fashion, food and James, what more could I possibly need in life?! Do stay tuned for my next installment of LFW day 3 which will be up on Thursday!
What do you think of my LFW outfit? Did you head down for the weekend? Do you like London? Whats your favourite thing to do in London?
