As you'll know from my excited Instagrams, I was lucky enough to attend the Whistles S/S'15 show at LFW last week. I've had my eye on the Portland backpack for months and months, and this nude version, which is one of two exclusive bags featured in the show and directly available to buy, is nothing short of a beaut.
Again if you follow me on Instagram you'll have seen that the key street style trend we picked out when shooting for the Telegraph was culottes. As soon as we noticed them we couldn't stop spotting them on absolutely everyone. And being the gullible fashion victim that I am, I obviously now need a pair. We saw a lovely girl wearing this Zara jumpsuit and I immediately knew I had to look it up. It's the best of both worlds, because at first glance it looks like a beautiful, if a little mundane, dress. But it's actually culottes! Genius.
Again while shooting street style for the Telegraph we photographed a girl outside the Topshop Unique show wearing this beautiful sleek grey skirt, and I couldn't believe it when she said she was wearing Topshop. Trust me, in real life this baby looks way above its high street station and £34 price tag. I'd team it with a matching grey long-sleeve top like she did.
Knitwear and bare legs is one of my all-time favourite combinations, and there's only a very small window in the year when the weather is conducive to it (read: September). That said, we're having more of an Indian summer at the moment, so needless to say I was a little bit toasty in this knit by the afternoon. I love making the most of tight-less weather, though, and then throwing on something cosy when the autumn evenings draw in.
If you happen to be an avid reader of my blog (a girl can dream that there are a few of you, right?) then you'll know two things about me: 1) I'm obsessed with scented candles. I mean, seriously, ain't no problem a scented candle can't fix, if you ask me. 2) & Other Stories is quite possibly my favourite high street store (OK, tied with Whistles). It is certainly the store that looks the most like my ideal home. So the news this week that & Other Stories have launched their own range of scented candles fills me with pure unadulterated joy. There are four in the collection, each inspired by a place in either Paris or Stockholm (the two cities where & Other Stories has ateliers). From Paris choose from 2ème Arondissement, scented with rose, violet and birch wood, or La Cour Jardin, with notes of cardamom, orange blossom and lotus flower. Meanwhile Stockholm's scents are Studion, a blend of bergamot, fig and coconut, and 7:e våningen, with pomegranate, raspberry and cedar wood. Can you guess which two are already on their way to me?
