How was everyone's weekend? I attended an amazing workshop on Saturday held by the London School of Styling. The workshop was called 'Breaking into Fashion' and it was honestly so helpful! We were given some amazing tips on how to get into the Fashion Industry and it really gave me an insight to the Styling side of Fashion. Where I study fashion design at uni, we cover so many areas but styling isn't of them. Or if it does, it's not enough to give us a good idea of what it involves or how you can get into styling. I really recommend that you take a look at their website if you are interested in becoming a Stylist or even if you're just curious! - London School of Styling

*The top, trousers and scarf are all old but I'm pretty sure you could find similar items on the high street.
For this outfit, I took some inspiration from one of my favourite style icons, Audrey Hepburn. I wanted my outfit to be simple yet chic and stylish, like many of Audrey's outfits. So I opted for these black and white gingham trousers and a plain black top. They would have looked fine on their own but I wanted to add a bit of colour to the outfit. I did this by choosing a silk scarf that I brought in a small boutique in Paris a couple of years ago. I love the colours in the scarf and I thought it would look great against the black and white. As well as the scarf I chose this blue bag to match the blue in the scarf and it adds the pop of colour I wanted. This outfit is now my go-to outfit for when I want to look smart but chic at the same time.
Since loafers are big again this season, I decided to dig out my ones from last year. They are still quite comfy but they are getting a bit battered from wear and tear. I may need to invest in a new pair soon. Actually, I say they're comfy but I wore them to London on Saturday and they hurt my feet so much! Towards the end of the day, I was genuinely limping and I had to cover the backs of my feet in plasters. So, they USED to be comfy.. haha :)
I have an outfit lined up that is inspired by another of my favourite style icons, Alexa Chung! It will be on my blog soon! Who are your favourite style icons? Let me know in the comments! :)
Thank you so much for reading and I hope you enjoyed it!
