Where would we be without all our accessories? I actually managed to pack light for once realising that just because my suitcase is large-ish doesn’t mean I have to fill it to bursting, especially when I always leave Devon with an assortment of delicious homemade jams and chutneys (super mum alert!).
So here are the accessories I can’t quite live without at the moment. The perfect assortment of shoe types and various coloured metals, meaning I only needed to bring a tshirt and trousers. WIN! Have a good weekend and if you want to see more from my Devon roaming, you can find me on instagram under girlalamode.
The only april fool this weekend was me going out practically in bare feet, it may be alright for bare legs but not quite sandals weather yet. I actually had a dream the other night that I was holidaying in the Caribbean, how desperate for sun can I be? Anyway, enough weather chat as that is all anyone talks about in London these days.
I’ve been living in this sweatshirt from Zara the last week, going through about 10 lint rollers a day due to Kobi shedding his winter coat all over the flat. It’s the perfect slouchy sporty vibe which has led me on the hunt for a pair of trousers with the same kind of aesthetic. I’m off to sadly put the sandals back in the cupboard. Enjoy the rest of your bank holiday weekend!
In the English countryside at the moment enjoying some R&R before lots of buyers meetings begin to take place next week. I still have so many pictures from the show to share with you that I will start to put up soon, I promise! Right now I’m enjoying taking little 7 month old Kobi out for long walks and knowing that a large chunk of the work is done. :)
Ermahgerd, it’s only 4 days to the show. Expect to see sneak peaks of the collection this week on my twitter, instagram, vine and of course on here! Do you ever feel like your blog is neglected in favour of social media? Probably, but only because there’s more time to upload a picture whilst on your way to a pre fashion week meeting, than dedicate an entire photo session to an outfit or a tasty meal I just ate. Now Vine is here, the circle of life on the internet is complete (see recent finger dancing vid whilst humming We Are Family..), or just see this outfit in motion and the sound of these hooves on the pavement. Rainy Sundays have never felt so good.

Despite living the last week in black jeans and a tshirt due to walking the dog or cutting out hides of leather on my hands and knees, it feels good to dress up in nice things at the weekend. I’ve been wearing my new boots at every available opportunity, their first outing being around my neighbourhood to buy a tin of beans from the corner shop. I’m not sure if Riccardo Tisci designed these boots with that job in mind but live in them, I shall.
Lumpy jumpers. This may be the ultimate lumpy jumper; I bought it from Labels Inc in Antwerp a couple of years ago from the mens section. It fits like a dad jumper, which is perfect in the right situations; such as a walk down the Thames on a cold Sunday. Happy to find such a cluster of trees in the middle of the city, so thought I would enjoy the moment.

Spending Sundays wondering around the Tate Modern for a bit of pre collection inspiration. I’ve already designed AW13 of course, but it’s good to clear my head before the next month of solid work. I’d never been down to The Tanks before; an insane underground space filled with concrete and metal, projections and smoke rooms. It’s a real sensory experience, even a little creepy in the best way possible. I wish I could show you more but you really have to go and experience it for yourself, a camera is no substitute.

This was the outfit I wore to the Bengt pop up shop launch last Thursday, there were photos taken on the evening but Lexxi and I had had too many Martini Royales to be taking anything too seriously and as a result I have a memory card full of laugh-out-loud moments. I currently have my SS13 collection back in my arms to go to the factory and into production, (so exciting!) it’s nice to give it some wear too.
