So, Motel sent me along to London Fashion Weekend to report on the day for their blog. It was a great (but very cold!) day and I loved the atmosphere of Somerset House! I was very lucky and got to choose a dress from the Motel collection and I chose this striped, monochrome baby-doll dress – I liked it especially because it is slightly over-sized and can therefore be dressed up or down. As you might also know, I do love a pattern clash, so I paired it with my trusty Tartan coat and some lovely spotted tights from The Tights House – this seemed to go down well and I even got street snapped by More and ELLE magazine, definitely a highlight of the day!
The catwalk show was also great and featured four trends for the SS13 season – Urban Lifestyle, Dolls House, Eastern Promise and Graphic Art – if you want to see photos and a little more write-up of the show then head on over to the Motel blog to read my report on the day!

Motel also asked me to snap some street style photos, London Fashion Weekend is such a great place to do this – so many stylish people! It’s an amazing place to pick up new ideas and styles. Above are a few of my favourites.. I was loving the tartan (obviously!) so I really liked this cool guy’s bomber style jacket as well as how this girl has added a splash of colour to her black coat with a tartan scarf – I definitely think tartan will be staying around for a while longer yet! Lastly I really liked the hint of bright blue by wearing cropped trousers under a long cape-coat paired with some trusty leather gloves, and then the traditional black jacket with a grey snood and the amazing Topshop Acne boots!
Lastly, a massive thank you to Motel for sending me along to Somerset House – it was a great day! Also a massive thank you to the lovely Lisa for being my trusty photographer and partner in shopping-crime for the day! 

That coat: I die. Heading to River island online right now

Absolutely love your outfit here, so glad to see tartan is making a resurgence! Can I ask what model your glasses are from Superdry, am I right in thinking they are the ‘Navigator 102’ ones? I’d really love to get a pair 🙂

The tartan style coat with the fur trim, looks like a great way to make a statement with your outfit. It speaks volumes, keep up the fabulous styling. xx
