So the calm before the storm begins. I have a love/hate relationship with Fashion week which I touch on every season and I'll talk about sometime after fashion week. But for now, Im stressing out, being comfy and awaiting the 5 best/worst days of the season. For the most part of today I'm just finalising all my details and sending Ella (who is coming along with me for LFW) a breakdown of all out fashion week plans. Im so grateful to have her coming along with me to help me get more shows covered and more lovely photos. I've got a pretty packed schedule as well as spending the day filming with St Tropez. I'm also doing some backstage stuff with my hair sponsors (sounds fancier than it is) for LFW, Toni and Guy Hair Meets Wardrobe. They'll be styling my hair in their 4 key hair looks Classic, Casual, Creative & Glamour. Their basic ethos is that personal style is not just about the clothes you wear but the entire look from head to toe. I'll be backstage at some of their sponsored shows and meeting their Global Hair Ambassador Mark Hampton. Im super excited about someone else doing my hair for a bit, we all know I cannot stand doing it!

I feel like this post has been a major humble brag, I never really brag about the things I do in blogging as I think it's crass and talking yourself up doesn't make you mean anything. I know my place as a blogger at London Fashion week, its basically the equivalent of being a that foam finger at the VMA's. "Oh you're a blogger… oh" Oh the judging! Cant wait to feel hideously unfashionable, fat and tired for 5 days.

  12. Enjoy LFW Lily! Keep positive, it's not about the label of being a blogger, it's about how much work you do, and you work very hard! Ignore the ignorant ones. xxxx

  15. So jealous of your ability to rock 'oversized' so effortlessly. I look like I'm wearing a binbag whenever I attempt this!

    I'm sure fashion week will be great! Wish someone would do my hair for me for a bit. Ceeeeeebs.

  56. oh lily, i really do hope you enjoy fashion week though but i can understand how it must be a tough 5 days! i hope it doesn't treat you badly though! i really love this dress and how whilst it's floral, it's not too girly. and that cardigan! it just looks so so cosy and i definitely wouldn't have thought it was from primark! also loving your boots still! i really want some new chunky ones for winter/university and these just seem perfect!
