London Style

London Fashion Week has come to a close, and let’s be real, sometimes it’s just as much about what happens on the street as what goes on at the shows… This season I’ve been shooting for British Vogue, Vogue Germany, Vogue Netherlands and Vogue Russia (plus a few others) so it’s fair to say I’m currently knee deep in street style. You can more of my street style from this season up on British Vogue right here.

Litttle Black Mini

Nick Campbell sunglasses, Alexander McQueen pleated mini dress (similar budget options here, here and here), Larsson & Jennings watch, Elena Ghisellini leopard print bag (similar leopard print bag here) and Saint Laurent ankle boots (budget option here)

The story of the little black dress is a tale as old as time, and for good reason. It possesses the magic trifecta; timeless, versatile and universally flattering. Perhaps the most convenient piece to make it’s way into in ones wardrobe?

I’m all about the short hemline of this LBD by Alexander McQueen. It’s beautifully made but not at all serious; which makes it perfect for day-wear whilst stomping around in slick black ankle boots.

Santorini Blues

During our time in the Greek Islands we spent five days on Santorini; the ridiculously photogenic island of fresh whites and blues. I’m going to be a little controversial and admit that Santorini was far from my favourite spot, simply because it felt so swamped by tourism in comparison to the slow pace of Mykonos and Folegandros. That said, it is just as beautiful as photos will have you believe with endless white buildings trimmed in blue, jagged cliff faces along the Aegean Sea and glorious sunsets night after night.

Sam and I quickly learned that our days were best spent exploring tiny, sparsely populated villages by foot, walking up hills in the name of dreamy views and down dusty roads in search of the best homemade tzatziki. And of course the odd afternoon drinking lazily by the pool…

Eat: Galini Cafe. This place ticks all the boxes; thoughtfully prepared food (which is reasonably priced) topped of with beautiful views from the deck outside.

Stay: Lilium Villas for a tranquil spot with insane views, and only a 5 minte drive from the thick of Fira (the main town of Santorini).

Do: Walk from Thira to Oia and take in the breathtaking scenery with almost no-one else around. Wear comfortable trainers and take plenty of water; it’s a 10km walk and things can get pretty hot under the Greek sun.
