Weekend dressing doesn’t need to be boring, it doesn’t need to be your “Sunday best” either. I love taking cues from models off duty for my weekend dressing, often all it takes is a simple trick, like a plaid shirt tied around your waist to elevate that t-shirt and leggings weekend uniform.

So just like that fashion month is over. All the early starts and late nights and running around, and I mean literally sprinting to catch a subject before they run into/off to a show, all done, hello sleep ins! I’ll write another post to detail a bit more about my experience as a first timer following the full circuit, but that’ll come a bit later when I’ve had a few more days to digest it all.

Right now let’s talk about Hanne Gaby, this girl is fun, beautiful and I love her style, here it’s all about the layering, like the peep of that red midi skirt under her long boxy coat, just enough colour and texture.

What’s in the big box you ask? Well we asked too, it was a stunning pair of knee high black boots from Dior, I wish I had a photo to show you, I wish Hanne was wearing them! But alas, let’s call it my street style photographer fail…
