The last day of fashion week was another day well spent at The Apartment winding down from the chaos of the week and getting to grips with the fact that it was almost time to head back to Manchester. The others were pretty thrilled with that idea, but being a former Londoner, leaving is always the hardest part – particularly after a whirlwind week that feels like you never left.
Day 5 was all about the braids, this one in particular being courtesy of the amazing Mark Hill team that we had at hand all week. After a week of envying bloggers having some amazing styles done, I definitely utilised them on the final day when the craziness had all wound down to jump on the braid hype.
If there’s a trend every lazy girl needs to grasp hold of right now, it’s the slogan tee trend! Yep, they’re back and they’re ‘sassier’ than ever – and most importantly, they’re acceptable to wear and be classed as ‘on fleek’. Missguided have some really cool ones online at the moment, and I definitely couldn’t resist this ‘Ya Blew It’ tee paired with a leather pencil skirt and some Oakley sunglasses to keep it a little less casual. Oh and these new season Public Desire lace ups? Yep, couldn’t resist those either! I told you I was a shoe addict… Can you blame me?
Talking of which, how about some pink fluff in your everyday workwear life? Yes, I hear you cry, yes! Office dressing – who said it had to be boring? This outfit is all about the shoes (when is it not with me?) and these Kurt Geiger Lulu trainers are dreamy. If it’s furry, it’s mine – and if it’s pink, even more so. When I first started my job, I was in heeled boots constantly and got so used to that pain. Then the icy weather set in and I started opting for trainers (at this point this was completely out of the norm for me) and since then, i’m fairly positive there’s been no going back! Am I just getting old and putting comfort first? Who knows, but at least i’m opting for the cute ones.
For office attire, I like to keep it casual with a pair of culottes or tapered trousers dressed down with an oversized shirt, sweater and trainers (the fluffier the better). Life’s far too short for corporate suits and boring footwear.
