Inherently Cool, West Houston, NYC

I was obsessed with my Dr. Martens at school and literally kick myself every time I see someone customise theirs in their own quirky way. There isn't anything particularly "fashion" about this look, which is why I think I love it. Like really love it. Its like this college guy was born with an innate sense of style that so many people aspire to have. I'm not even a fan of 'man-jewellery' fact I positively hate it, but he appears so comfortable that I'm guilty of being a fan of this male bijoux (only on this rare occasion may I add).

Dr. Martens are totally tuned in to the sense of nostalgia their boots & shoes evoke. They're encouraging brand-lovers to tweet about their first DM experience - just use #FirstandForever to share yours.

LFW...Street Style Day 4

LFW Day 4, Outfit 4

Mixing it up a little on day four...and by mixing I mean NOT wearing a maxi skirt. After three solid days of snapping away, my poor, blistered feet (sorry - not a nice thought I realise!) couldn't handle heels again so I opted for my trusted Repetto jazz shoes. Just the right amount of jazz but thankfully, comfy as a bean bag! Did I also mention my kimono inspired tunic? Actually a dress from the kids department in Zara. Not sure if that makes it an insanely cool find or just plain sad!!

Tunic: Zara kids department
Trousers: Prada
Shoes: Repetto

LFW...Day 3

There was a clear palette of highlighter hues today at LFW - everything from Zandra Rhodes's hair to lacy skirt numbers. Colour certainly seemed to be the order of the day as colourful brights were paired with neutral basics.

LFW Day 3, Outfit 3

Another day and another outfit. Although not intentional I'm quickly realising that maxi skirts are my LFW uniform staple. Today's fluro pink, pleated skirt was a great (and cheap!) find from Portobello Market. For me, anything that's not comfortable can't afford style to the maxi skirts it is then..although I will try and add some variety at some point this week!

LFW Day 2, Outfit 2

Be careful what you wish for...I got my cold, grey day so I could wear my more wintery "get-up". Totally regretting that one! Despite the rain, today's street style spots did not disappoint. Mustard yellow and burgundy appeared to be the dominant colours of the day with a fair few polka-dots on everything from dresses, to skirts and socks. Today's pictures will be posted later on this evening so please do come back and watch this stylish space...

Skirt: Bershka
Sweater: Cos

Day 1, London Fashion Week Street Style

The bloggers, stylists, editors and photographers were out in full force on the first day of Fashion Week. Top spots of the day were some seriously alternative and vertiginous heels, maxi skirts (seemingly not going anywhere as we head into A/W) and candy coloured a true punk revival on its way?
