For the first day of London Fashion Week I wore a blue animal print dress I received from British workwear brand Great Plains (I'm clearly quite a fan of this pattern, as I have a short sleeve dress and a minidress with billowing sleeves in a similar print and I quite fancy the matching scarf too).

For accessories, I wore a pair of royal blue and gold sunglasses from luxury eyewear brand Finest Seven, a vintage 1980s Chanel necklace from Susan Caplan, my cobalt blue neoprene heels, Henri Bendel and Kate Spade bracelets and a rose gold leather clutch from Karen K, filled with invitations for a jam-packed day.  More on my favourite LFW shows later...
