Outfit: Gold Top at LFW






Kimono: ASOS
Roll neck: c/o Dorothy Perkins
Top: COS
Jeans: ASOS
Shoes: Topshop 

This was my third and final look from LFW this season, and as I write this I'm just about getting over six weeks' worth of fashion week fatigue. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love going to all of the shows and doing that as part of my job is a dream, but I am looking forward to a couple of lazy weekends at home in my pyjamas.  

For this outfit I went with fail-safe all black, adding in a pop of colour with this dull gold top from COS. Layering was another key factor to keep the cold (and wind) at bay, so I wore a simple roll neck top underneath, and finished off the look with this dramatic oversized kimono jacket from ASOS.

Outfit: Ganni Pyjama Shirt at LFW






Blazer: c/o PrettyLittleThing
Roll neck top: c/o Dorothy Perkins
Shirt: Ganni
Jeans: Weekday
Shoes : New Look 

For the second day of London Fashion Week I opted for quite a casual look. Friday was a really busy day for me so on Saturday I wanted comfort - hence the pyjama shirt I picked up from the Ganni outlet in Copenhagen a couple of weeks ago. Obviously, I didn't want to completely look like I'd just rolled out of bed, so a roll neck top layered underneath and blazer on top made it a bit more acceptable for the outside world.

Outfit: Green Trousers and Kimono at LFW







Kimono: ASOS
Jumper: ASOS
Trousers: COS
Shoes: Topshop

I'm currently in the middle of London Fashion Week, going from show to show and writing up reports for Coggles. It's a busy one, as ever, but even the rain hasn't been able to dampen the incredible shows we've seen, champagne we've drunk and new restaurants we've sampled. 

This was my outfit for day one - our busiest day by far (a good 10 hours of back-to-back shows, events and presentations), so I wanted to be warm and comfortable. Loose layers in the form of these incredible COS trousers, a kimono jacket and thick knitwear were the answer, with block mid-heels for walking the city's streets in.

Outfit: The Pink COS Top







Top: COS
Jeans: ASOS
Shoes: New Look 

This outfit is a bit of a revelation for me, mainly because pink (or salmon?) is such a departure from my usual colour palette. I picked this top up in the COS sale when I was in Copenhagen, walking past it a few times on the rail before finally committing to trying it on - and I'm so glad I did. I love the boxy shape and that slight waterfall, drapey effect it has at the front, while the long back gives it an interesting silhouette. 

I'm off to London Fashion Week tomorrow so I'm currently trying to finalise my outfits - trying to strike the balance between being stylish, warm and comfortable. Follow me on Instagram to see if I manage to pull it off!

Interior: Simple Grey and White Home



At the beginning of January, my boyfriend Adam and I moved into our new little house in Manchester. We're renting but it was completely unfurnished and fortunately our landlord gave us free reign with decorating so we painted the whole place white (except the bedroom, which is light grey) and for the past six weeks we've been going on endless trips to IKEA and filling the place.



I'd had my eye on the grey Tubby sofa and Hooper coffee table from Made.com for a while, so they were the first purchases we made, along with the geometric grey and mustard cushions. We then filled the rest of the room with dark grey curtains, a simple rug and lamp and rattan armchair from IKEA (made cosy with a sheepskin rug thrown over the top). 


One of my favourite features of the room is the fireplace; its tiles conveniently go nicely with the grey sofa, it's the perfect resting place for my simple white vase, Broste bowl and SKANDINAVISK Hygge candle, plus it's been perfect for cold winter nights in. 


We've kept the bedroom pretty simple (the second bedroom is my walk-in wardrobe) to make it a real sanctuary, and with a palette of grey, white and natural wood, it has an instant calming effect. This is made even better by our new mattress from Leesa* - a mattress that is seriously one of the comfiest I've ever slept on. It's memory foam and arrived vacuum packed, so it took a couple of weeks before it was fully as it should be but now we instantly fall asleep as our heads hit the pillow - which is unusual for me - and I sleep right through the night, no tossing and turning required.

Outfit: Hooded Camel Coat at CPHFW






Jumper: ASOS
Jeans: ASOS
BLazer: c/o PrettyLittleThing 
Boots: Zara
Bag: Sandqvist 

For my second look at Copenhagen Fashion Week, I opted for all black layers with a hint of colour in this hooded camel coat. It was pretty cold when we were there so one coat didn't prove to be enough; this belted blazer was the perfect thing to wear underneath, while still keeping the look streamlined. 

That day we just had the one show to go to so it was a pretty relaxed one after a hectic (but really fun) first full day in the city, ending it at Neighbourhood - the most incredible pizza place. I'll be updating my food guide to Copenhagen in the next few days with all of the amazing new places we discovered so keep an eye out for more!

Outfit: Khaki Duster at CPHFW






Scarf: Pieces
Black Jacket: ASOS
Khaki Jacket: Missguided (similar)
Tunic: COS
Boots: Zara
Bag: Sandqvist

I've just returned from Copenhagen Fashion Week, a trip that has further cemented my love for the city despite the cold and the wind. This was the outfit I wore for our first day there, with pretty much back-to-back shows of By Malene Birger (my favourite), Lovechild 1979, Baum und Pferdgarten and Ganni. 

Going from outdoors to in so much meant layers were the only way forward, pairing two lightweight jackets over a longline tunic, jeans and finishing off with a chunky blanket scarf. Copenhagen, I can't wait to come back.

Outfit: Slit Dress and Culottes





Culottes: Zara
Shoes: Topshop

Anyone who's followed my blog for a while will know that when I'm not in jeans, I practically live in culottes. They're quite possibly the most versatile items of clothing I own - from pairing with a shirt and flats, to heels and crop top, I think I'd be more than happy if these were the only things I wore for the rest of my life. This is one of the combinations I've been wearing recently; I love how the slits in the dress show off what's underneath, making for an easy yet elegant look.
