It's London Fashion Week and it feels appropriate to share an eco outfit post from my time there this fall, roaming the streets of Sloane Square with Kit Lee.
One of the things I love most about London is it's encouragement to dress up. You can go from a corner pub to a five star restaurant wearing the same thing because everywhere you go everyone else it also dressed to impress. Do they dress up from themselves? Or each other? I'm not sure. My answer is: both. This summer I started putting more into my everyday looks, and doing even a little makeup or styling of my hair before leaving the house. I did it for me. To feel my best and what I found is it actually made life easier because I was able to go from one thing to the next appropriately attired. Hmm, those Brits are on to something...
This was one of my favorite looks that we shot while I was in LondonTown. It just feels completely and utterly like ME. Many of you know that I lived in London while attending university and I always say that London is where I found myself. My sense of style and being-ness as a woman. Maybe that is why it will keep a piece of my heart forever, and remain one of my most cherished places.
MY TOP THREE ECO BOUTIQUES TO SHOP IN LONDON.
ETHICAL COLLECTION- Pop up shop usually making an appearance in Notting Hill. A fab curation of wearable and also a little more fashion forward pieces.
THE ACEY- Cool girl staple. Think vegan sneaks and minimalist shirt dresses.
69b BOUTIQUE- The most extensive offering of eco chic pieces in one place. Founded by an ex-editor at British Vogue, this store makes shopping for stylish pieces while appeasing your conscious seamless.
