Topshop Unique SS15

After yesterday's show, I just feel the overwhelming need to gush about my love for the new Topshop Unique collection. I mean, wasn't it just perfect? I personally was feeling some serious 1930s roots in this collection; modernized with some 60s flare and 90s edge. Creative director, Kate Phelan, said that she was inspired by vintage Blackpool "the grass roots of Britain" as she called it. There is no denying the quintessentially British feel of this collection. It oozes Agatha Christie and long summer days at the tennis court.

Fashion Week Dreaming

trousers: c/o front row shop - turtleneck: matalan - leather jacket: warehouse - sneakers: nike

Here's my 'this is what I would wear to LFW if I were able to go' outfit. I'm a bit miffed really because I move to London next weekend meaning I just miss out on fashion week, but hey ho I'll be there for next season. Fashion week is one of those times where outfits need to find that perfect balance of suave, high fashion style and absolute comfort. So, when I got these trousers I decided to opt for classic sneakers instead of my go to chunky boots; i love the sporty edge and they're just so comfortable. I don't wear sneakers nearly as often as I should; I'm always amazed at the pillow-like feeling I get when I put them on because I just forget in the hustle and bustle of platforms, boots and stilettos. Here's to comfy shoes.
