This season has marked both my first experience of London Fashion Week itself, and London Fashion Weekend. Both trips were very impromptu, but if anything this worked out well because it didn't allow me too much time to dwell and worry. In each instance I simply received the invites, booked my trains, and a few days later I was arriving at Somerset House!
Yesterday George at Asda sent me to London Fashion Weekend with my friend Shannon, and let me pick out an outfit to wear on the cobbles. Naturally, I fell for a midi skirt! I based my outfit around the skirt (which is now on sale for a mere £8!), opting for a simple white top, black T-bar heels, a matching bag, a delicate daisy bracelet and some retro sunglasses. George are a great go-to for affordable staples, but that said it was a lot of fun styling a slightly more dressy outfit from their collections! I finished the outfit off with my trusty pink coat, and switched my hair back to my old centre parting.
London Fashion Weekend itself made for a great Saturday afternoon! There was a slightly more relaxed vibe than there had been the previous week at London Fashion Week, although the lack of showstopping street style made for slightly less satisfying people watching! I've decided to block off both London Fashion Week and Weekend in my diary come September so that next season I can throw myself into events with a little more commitment. What are your experiences of London Fashion Week/Weekend? I'd love to hear them!
