L.K.Bennett SS16

There really was no rest for the wicked when I got back from holiday; I was straight off the plane and straight into a super fun shoot with L.K.Bennett to show off the best of their SS16 collection. We shot 4 looks (which will be featured on the blog in the coming weeks, and their site here) using Duck and Dry on the Kings Road as a base for hot coffees, fresh juices and - most importantly - fresh looking hair dos.  I was so, so excited to do this as so many people swear by their shoes but wouldn't think to try them for clothing. I'm hoping my styling efforts go in some way to prove you wrong...

First up the coat; what a colour! Yes, a tan helps (I had to put up with all of you going away over the summer when I went nowhere - so you can lump my smugness over not being pasty pale for a few weeks) but this cobalt shade is one of my favourite. Every time I've worn it since the shoot someone has commented on it - and it's so (cashmere) soft it feels like you're wearing a hug...

The jumper is one of three I'd had my eye on. There really is something great about a new well fitted knit. The little silver, coral and navy dots on it make it a bit different, but essentially its a grey jumper  so it goes with absolutely everything. Here is the grey one, but it also comes in coral here and cobalt here. Did I mention how warm it was? In case not; it's super warm. Perfect wear for people who have just come back from the Caribbean after a fortnight's holiday. Just like me. So there.

Now the boots... I was unsure about these as I've seen people I would put in the "way cooler than me" box wear them and wasn't sure I could pull them off. But you know what? They're so easy to wear and surprinsgly comfortable! I was sworn to only ever wearing plain coloured boots but these are so much fun and cheer up a bleary, winter's day. A worthy investment, find them here. Lastly the jeans; my old faithfuls. I keep trying to find an upgrade for the "fitted boyfriend" jean but I just can't beat Topshop's Mom jeans. For £40 you can't beat 'em - so join 'em, here.

Stay tuned on the blog for more from my day with the L.K.Bennett girls - I have an amazing full skirt to show you and a brilliant little "work to play" dress that I've been bouncing around in ever since the shoot.

This post was in collaboration with L.K Bennett. Thank you to Duck and Dry and Amelia Allen for all your help and skills on the day!

I love the colour of the coat but I'm not mature enough to handle the responsibility of suede boots!! Glad you had a lovely holiday, I look forward to reading all your LK Bennett posts in the weeks to come. Xx
