Over a month ago you will recall my trip to Paris and the amazing hotel experience I had the pleasure of staying at Hotel Splendid Etoile. This cute romantic hotel is what I now call my parisian secret as it's centrally located in the 17th arrondissement within walking distance from the Champs E'lysees and Charles des Gualle Etoile metro.

On arrival the staff were exceptionally welcoming with a bottle of champagne, truffles and snacks which went down a treat after travelling from the UK. I stayed in their corner suite which had sensational views of the Arc D'Triomphe and a balcony that wraps around the apartment. The room consisted of duck egg blue and hints of orange decor with a large closet in the hall way, ideal for a fashionable array of outfits. The marbled en-suite also had access to the balcony and views of paris. 

Along with a restaurant, bar, free wifi and dry cleaning available it has all you need for a comfortable stay. I can truly say that this hotel is by far one of my favourite destinations to stay in Paris. A special thank you to all the staff at Hotel Splendid Etoile as you truly made my experience in Paris a most memorable one.

I've always loved the patriotic combination of red white and navy...so clean and classic. However today I'm showing you how to style the same look 2 ways, casual and for the office. Starting with these cropped striped trousers which are the most comfy pair of pants I have tried. They are super soft cotton which literally move with you. I love styling trousers like these with a basic stripe shirt as you can never go wrong with a fitted shirt. This boyfriend style works well tucked in or worn out over a pair of jeans. By just swapping my jacket from a red bomber which is this season's must have, to this navy cape literally creates two unique looks which is super easy to recreate. It's amazing how a change of colour and style of jacket can enhance your outfit. And of course my patriotic look wouldn't be complete without a pair of red shoes!

On another note I have been super busy moving house as I just bought my new home. Sooooo exciting!!! Cant wait to bring more lifestyle posts to share with you all soon!

Day 1 of LFW is always crazy and hectic with usually back to back shows, however this season felt much more relaxed and I actually really enjoyed it. Instead of rushing from show to show I concentrated on the shows I really wanted to see. First show of the day was J. JS Lee which centred around simple clean silhouettes, high neck lines and head to toe prints. Followed by Felder Felder which had a more eclectic rock and roll vibe featuring luxe metallics, fur and leather with energised models strutting the runway.

My outfit initially started with this belted mac from Hobbs. I have had it for about 7 months now but somehow totally forgot about it. I recently did a clear out and came across this orange treasure and knew that it would be the perfect piece to wear this season. With it's floral print it screams spring, yet when paired with white flares it provides a trendy sophisticated look. Having long limbs means that sometimes its hard to find the right shirts. I have been after a bell sleeved blouse for ages and found one in Zara but unfortunately it just fell too short. So I decided to have my shirt customised to fit, and I'm so happy I did. The right length sleeves peeking out of this mac along with my favourite white flares, was such a cute combo.

I recently fell in love with this little McQueen bag...  I mean how cute is it?! And the fact that it has my initials on there it really was not an option to leave behind! But let's face it going to LFW with a teeny bag is not very practical as where would I put my invites, phone, and other necessities? So the only option was to double bag! And this silver cross body was the ideal companion! Just the right size for all the items left over and finished off my look perfectly!
