A TK’MAXX Find
Now it’s not often I pop into TK Maxx for clothes, but I just happen to pass a hat for £12 a little while back and love it. Sooner or later, I knew something would have caught my eye in there… Generally speaking, it helps to lift an otherwise plain outfit – just make sure it’s not a windy day! Reiss also do great hats, this one is very similar to my frugal find (and probably better quality).
The Leather Leggings
And I know I’ve featured these M&S leather leggings before, they are so versatile and such a wardrobe staple (seriously). They no longer sell them, but have a (sort of) similar pair here. I wear mine with a long-line shirt from Uniqlo to keep them paired back and simple, a classic look. They work well with flats but equally with a fab pair of pointy courts, as demonstrated by the gorgeous Style on The Couch blog.

This fabulous clutch is by Sophie Anderson, an amazing accessories designer who I have stumbled upon through work – I love the vibrancy of this bag – and it fits my iPad – the dream. Her SS13 collection will soon be stocked at Matches.
My new ring, is from Maria Francesca Pepe from Amazon’s Jewellery Boutique. I knew Amazon stocked jewellery, but I certainly had no idea they had edgier brands like Maria Francesca Pepe, whose studded designs are a hit with our Fashion Team:

I'm looking for some pointy courts, but with a little (kitten maybe?) heel. Ideally not slingback and black, though something vibrant could work. Any ideas?
What about something like these from New Look…? I really rate their shoes http://tiny.cc/w4dmsw
Office also do some but alas, they are slingback x
You look perfect! Love the coat and hat. So nice to see a proper hat (how old does THAT make me sound?!?) Rather than a bloody bowler hat!!
Jealous of your lovely LFW times even after only day one 🙂 xxxx
Thank you!! Although have seen that Accesorize have made the bowler hat with cat ears – cuuute!
Thank you so much for the mention! I was hoping we might bump into each other for fashion week but the days get a bit crazy, no? I'd love to meet up for a coffee sometime and talk all things blogging.
