Pleats Please

Good morning from Italy!
This week has been quite surreal, just a few days ago I was deep in the bustle of London Fashion Week, soaking in the shows, the people and the clothes, and now I write this post from a lounge chair, overlooking the majestic Lake Garda – I’m here for some much needed relaxation!  
LFW is filled with so many inspiring aspects and this year I was so fortunate to have attended the shows of some of my favourite designers, as well as covering backstage beauty (be sure to follow the Vlogs on my YouTube channel here) and between dashing through shows I still somehow managed to steal a few moments to shoot some outfits for the blog, and this is my final LFW look. (Click here for my first look, and here for my second).
This outfit is more ‘my style’ than ‘London Fashion Week style’, but I kind of feel like I’m a little bit over getting dressed up for the street style snaps, dressing for someone else other than yourself. So I chose this feminine floaty pleated skirt – at under £50 it’s one of those budget-friendly statement pieces that is my kind of wardrobe staple. The colour is described as ‘natural’ and in my eyes it almost alters depending on your outfit and situation – here for example I feel that it picks up a pinky hue. 
I styled it minimally with a grey marl T-shirt (every girl should own at least one of these) and my most practical and fashionable new bag – this gorgeous soft leather grey backpack. If you’ve not tried a backpack before, you won’t fully be able to understand the sheer bliss and freedom of being hands free – a delicacy especially during fashion week, when you can barely manage to balance your phone, camera and show invitations in your hands.
The rest of my accessories and more details are listed below, enjoy! xo
