This week I find myself in a constant turmoil of whether to dress for the sun, the cold, the rain or the humidity. Much like the rest of London as we scramble to the tubes, all I notice either a complete faux pas of their outfits, or wardrobe envy as their outfit is definitely one suited for our ‘British Summer’.
I find the best way to get around this predicament is to combine summery layers with maxi dresses, skirts, or jeans, therefore they can all keep me either warm or sheltered from the weather. As with footwear, I’m still trying to find the right balance, but for now, sandals seem the best option, either cool for the humidity, or allows quicker drying if I step in a puddle!
It’s so hard resisting all the shops and outlets where I am based – Oxford Street – as you may be fully aware, is drowning in the beautiful garments that I cannot afford, especially on my intern wage. But I can’t complain, I mean, looking at clothes is exactly the same right?

It’s been a hectic couple of weeks, that I have completely taken advantage over the freedom to update my blog as freely as I wish! So I’m taking time out of my lunchbreak to update you all on what has been going on!
Firstly, I have been working with the ladies at best magazine, helping mostly the fashion, beauty and lifestyle areas of the editorial, attending press events, transcripting, organising press samples and the fashion cupboard and ordering in products for testing! It’s been a fabulous week, especially as everyone is so friendly.

I had the best afternoon yesterday with my friend Kate. It was a belated birthday present from her, as she got us an afternoon tea at a very posh Hotel in London, and the cakes and tea were specifically made for the fashion followers and the designer loving.
