Hello! I'm sorry about the (almost) week long gap between posts this week! I've had so much to do this week, so have had limited time to sit on my laptop and waffle, tweet and check my emails. Saying this, my list of 'things to blog about' has somewhat grown, so you can be sure that in the next week there will be lots of lovely things popping up on here (even if I have to cheat a bit and schedule some- ''at least they won't be at 11 at night!'' I hear you cry!) Some of the weeks activities include seeing two of my favourite artists Slow Club & King Charles, a visit to the absolutely stunning and luxurious Aubin Cinema- which I cannot recommend enough, and some amazing and very filling dinner treats from Pizza East!

Anyway, in the last week or so, thanks to the sub-Arctic conditions we've been experiencing (not quite, but it's fun to be a drama queen sometimes) I've pretty much been living in this combination- minus the heels of course. There's something about a shapeless cosy jumper that you just can't fault in this weather, however preventing the pound-packing effect it gives can sometimes be tough- so balancing it out with some shorts and tights/skinny jeans is almost essential. When I read Jens post last week on 'chunky knit's I was almost shouting 'I hear ya sista!' at my laptop, so after putting her advice into practise I think I've (hopefully) come up with a recipe for something a little 'chic' with extra warmth thrown in (take that, winter!)

However, I still have a problem. With my first ever LFW coming up this Friday (words cannot explain my nerves/fear) I'm still trying to establish what the fashion etiquette is for dressing in such blooming cold weather (as if what to wear wasn't problem enough!) I bought the loveliest peach jacket from H&M today so am hoping I can and channel the pastel trend without looking like an actual sorbet. Do any of you have any pointers for fashion week? Are jeans socially acceptable? Is that a silly question? Help s'il vous plaît!

    Hope you have fun at LFW! I am notoriously bad at dressing for the temperature, and the added hassle of london is that the tubes are always so hot!

  22. I love this jumper, it looks so cosy - I know what you maen about having to 'balance' out chunky knits though, but I think this works really well with the skinnies. I'm sure you're freezing though with the heels on, it's SO cold isn't it?! Good luck at LFW, sounds fab xx

  34. ohhh I'm heading to fashion week as well and packing has been a nightmare. pairing floaty skirts with chunky knits and jumpers and my massive parka. I'm a photographer though, so the pressure to look good IN FRONT of a lens is a lot less! Hope to see you around!

  38. Hi Olivia, I'm Reiss' girlfriend Rachel. He told me that you have a blog and I really really love it! I believe I've met Joe a couple of times during my visits to Orpington! My blog is still very much in the early stages and has only been going since January. Have had a look through your older posts (in the least non-stalky way I promise!!) sorry to hear you didn't like uni, I had a really tough time when I started at Kent and ended up changing courses from business to classics! Absolutely adore your style, you have acquired yourself an avid follower. Shall attach link to my page, would love to know what you think!

  40. I absolutely adore this jumper, perfect with the rolled up skinnies as well! I definitely think jeans would be acceptable for LFW if you smarten them up a bit, I actually think skinny jeans and a good jacket is one of the most chic combos!

  47. Hail the knitwear!

    Re fashion week, the peach jacket and a dress, tights (many pairs if cold) and heels. If jeans, the heels as well. I think heels are a must. How many times am I keep going to say heels? heels, heels, heels lol. Whatever you decide to wear, just make sure you feel confident and comfortable in it.. ok no point going in heels if you're worried about falling over

  48. I love the bag and your ombre hair!!

  49. You look great! I love your hair and the black white top! By the way, your hair is always so fantastic, i wish I could do so many styles with my one...
