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!
