(Jumper: Mother of Pearl, Jeans: ASOS, Boots: Stradivarius, Bag: Strathberry)

I'll be totally honest- I'm not normally one for London Fashion Week. With two days before the big weekend, I've found myself reflecting back to my first ever LFW (five years ago !!!) and thinking about giving this one a shot once again. Being one to very much sit on the sidelines during these busy weeks, it's been interesting seeing how my opinion has changed over the last 5 years- from the excited buzz of the unexpected- to almost feeling slightly overwhelmed about knowing my place in such a bustling industry over five days.

Anyway- this year I'm giving it a go. I'm taking a spin on tailoring a select few things that I like to think are very specific to my blog, the brands I love (and ~align~ with) and hopefully doing something a little different. I know people don't come here to see glossy catwalk shots or reviews of upcoming collections- but I do think it's important to shine a light on some of my favourite elements and exciting talents- with Mother of Pearl being one of them.

Having seen the gorgeous show last year, I fell in love with Amy Powney's eye for fusing sportswear pieces with a feminine edge (we're talking racing stripes with ruffles), a playful eye for print and careful fabric and design- which for me, is what fashion week is all about. The new, the classic and the beautifully exciting discoveries. So here's to this season (or giving it a go anyway)...

  16. I like how you're remembering the brands that are important to you and not just going to fashion week and snapping everything because you think that's what we all want to see! But staying true to those brands you really love! The top is gorgeous by the way!

  21. This jumper is to die for, it's gorgeous and I love the ruffles! With you on fashion week, I only went a few times to photograph and felt very overwhelmed, but it's exciting to see a few shows and get inspired - can't wait for the collections.

  28. I've never been to fashion week but I totally get this feeling of where do you fit in as some one who loves fashion and fashion blogging in the high end fashion arena. I don't feel like I fit in at all to the high end, materialistic side of fashion but I still love clothes and creating outfits so its a hard one. I hope you have a good time this week, and manage to enjoy some of it!

  34. I'm not one for red, but this colour suits you so much! I love jumpers with ruffles at the moment, they are indeed really feminine and that mix with the stripes is really interesting! :)
