You've seen the street style shots of my favourite looks in the courtyard at LFW on Tuesday, now here's my own outfit details of what I wore to the event. Unfortunately, I never managed to take any of my own outfit photos however, I was street styled myself numerous times so I've managed to gather a collection of street style photos that others captured of my outfit (credits and links at the bottom of this post).

Travelling up to London was a spur of the moment decision for myself. I actually rolled over in bed on Tuesday morning debating whether or not to go, because my initial plans to travel there with my housemate fell through and I was far too nervous to go it alone. However, I gave myself the kick up the bum I needed (not physically - that would be almost impossible!) and jumped on the 10am train to London Waterloo. Since it was a spontaneous decision I didn't have too much time to plan or think about my outfit, so instead I just pretty much threw on a few of my favourite items from my wardrobe all together! Once I finally arrived in London after being cramped on a train for an hour full of half term school kids I registered with BFC to gain a pass for the exhibitions thanks to my blog. I was pleasantly taken aback when the ever so lovely girl behind the desk (Melisa from The Avenue Online) said she was a reader of my blog! Little recognitions like that do truly make my day! Unfortunately I was on a time limit to get back to Southampton so I didn't see too much of the exhibition sadly.








Hat: H&M, £12.99 // Sunglasses: River Island Sale, £2 // Feather Braid: Claire's, £3.50 // Necklace: Urban Outfitters, £10.80 (inc. staff discount) // Maxi Dress: ASOS Sale , £35 // Faux Fur Coat: Zara Sale, £23 // Leather Gilet: All Saints Sale, £150 // Paisley Kimono: Minkpink via Urban Outfitters Sale, £30 (inc. staff discount) // Rucksack*: c/o Grafea // Rings*: New Look, Unknown, c/o Tentative Decisions // Shoes: eBay, £28

The entire day I was constantly compared to a modern day Stevie Nicks, which I've decided to accept as a huge compliment as I'm massive Fleetwood Mac fan. I've had this beautiful neon dip dye lace maxi for a year or so but have never had the opportunity to wear it so I was happy to debut it at Somerset House. It will definitely be venturing out of the wardrobe a lot more this summer thanks to the upcoming neon trend. In fact, my H&M hat is the only recent purchase which I bought just last week, the rest is a mixture of garments I've collected from over the years. The charming white leather rucksack was a gift from Grafea last year that has firmly become one of my favourite bags ever and is perfect for the SS season. It's such a timeless piece that I'm certain to use year after year! My main priority for travelling to London was to do some street style sketching of the outfits in a hope to maybe inspire an idea for my Final Major Project, even though fashion illustration was a complete different tangent from what I was working on originally. Inevitably I was sidetracked by meeting some wonderful characters, enjoying the sun in the courtyard, shooting some street style and just general lapping up the atmosphere. I really wish I had planned in advance and had gone down earlier in the week too! In September I will definitely be more prepared!
