I always find it so difficult to get out of bed on the Saturday at LFW, my muscles are weary after the long day previous and my mind is telling me ‘It’s Saturday, you need a long lie’, but this season it was a last minute invite to one of my absolute favourites, Orla Kiely, which pulled me out of my slumber and into this printed ensemble.
I had less shows to attend on day 2 but more presentations (which I love), all of which were dotted around the city, so more walking was expected. I was also looking forward to catching up with friends I hadn’t seen in a while and generally soak in the LFW vibe (like I said yesterday, it take me a day to get back into the swing of things).
I really wanted to take my new Peter Pilotto for Target get up for spin but was nervous as I was sure that everyone would be in an identical uniform. In the end I decided to hell with it, and attempted to work it in my own way. After braving bare legs the day before, I wrapped up in 60 deniers and threw on my fail safe winter coat once again. And as for my hair, I was taking no chances after the extreme windswept look I had to sport most of Friday and opted for an easy ponytail, which, alas, proved just as tricky in the wind.
So here’s how my day 2 outfit came together;
Step 1 – Take one statement printed pencil skirt (Peter Pilotto for Target), team with thick black tights and a simple white tank top.
Step 2 – Add a matching printed long sleeve tee (Peter Pilotto for Target).
Step 3 – Keep it chic with a pair of patent flats (ASOS).
Step 4 – Add a statement necklace in complimentary colours (H&M).
Step 5 – Throw on the perfect cross body, hold everything, bag (BHS).
Step 6 – Match your lippy to your bag (YSL) and tie your hair up in a backcombed pony.
Step 7 – Pull on a warm (and colour co-ordinating) coat (& Other Stories).
What do you think of my matchy matchy ensemble?
P.S I have no idea why I’m pointing at my shoes in such an idiotic manner?!?
