Wow, what an incredible experience at my first ever London Fashion Week today! I've always dreamt of being amongst the buzz, witnessing the street style and watching the shows so today that finally came true. I'm currently interning with Styloko - an online personal shopping website which brings all of your favourite retailers together in one place. The website also features a personal boutique section to share your favourite pieces with others and a fashion blog. As part of the fashion blog, I was taken to LFW as part of press to photograph the street style, manage the Instagram/ Vine for the website and generally spread the word. This was just up my street as I love fashion photography and people-watching is my all time favourite hobby! I got to meet the likes of the Made in Chelsea crowd along with other fashion followers which was really exciting. To view any of my snaps follow my Instagram (@lydiafayejones) and visit Styloko.com within the next few days as they are posted.

There was sooo much pressure to don my best outfit for LFW but I knew whatever I wore I would regret once I saw everyone else! I wasn't going to be the girl who shows up in a mini dress and skyscraper heels so I opted for a comfortable but vibrant outfit. I featured this neon green blouse not so long ago but it matched so perfectly with this printed skirt, I couldn't resist allowing it another outing. I love the subtle neon detailing of the skirt and it can be worn in so many different ways. I also wore my Jovonista boyfriend style jacket which hasn't featured for a while but is still one of my all time favourites. I love the slouched style of the sleeves towards the cuffs and the fabric is ultra soft.

I'm hopefully attending a couple of shows at LFW next week so I'm going to spend this weekend planning my outfits so I don't have a last minute panic again! I'm toying with doing a post about some of the street style snaps I captured over fashion week at the end of the week, would this be something that would interest you?
