London with French Connection.

frenchconnectioncover

London is one of my favorite cities- the street style, the hustle & bustle, the proper way of speaking english, the double-decker buses, the bright red phone booths, fish & chips, I mean, how could it not be a favorite?

So I was excited to find out I would be traveling to London with one of my favorite brands, French Connection. I’ve always loved everything that they’ve carried from clothing, shoes to accessories and even house ware. I always end up finding the cutest pieces that are versatile yet fun, like this white sweater I got a couple of months ago.

I did a lot of sightseeing, tons of picture taking and grubbed on too much fish & chips but I felt very British by the time we had to close out our trip which was great. The most exciting part about my trip was getting to hang with the French Connection team, checking out their new fall collection and getting to attend their A/W ’14 Campaign press preview launch party! It was all sorts of fun; with the theme being magic, rabbits, and one of London’s biggest magicians, Troy Von Scheibner.

Here’s a small diary of what my trip looked with French Connection! Hope you enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed being there!

Special thank you to French Connection for having me! xo

Room service was always enjoyable especially when the spread looks like that!

One of my favorite looks from London during LFW consisted of this tough yet feminine look wearing one of my go-to hair dos, the messy fishtail braid. It’s the easiest hair-do I can do when I’m in a hurry and I always get complimented no matter how messy it is!

These amazing moto Nicola J brand leather pants have the sickest knee details. They make for the perfect fall item and I love how cool they look with whatever; heels, boots, converse, knitted sweaters or in my case, a metallic blazer for a more put together look.

The fishtail braid definitely eased up the overall look to give off a bit more of a romantic feel. Love finding a right balance between hair and my wardrobe! #hairmeetwardrobe

Phonebox.

While in London, it was only right I had a little impromptu photo shoot with the iconic phone boxes! They’re just so fun and the bright red complemented my sweater and skirt so well, it was hard not to keep taking photos! Wish we had things like this in the states!

Looking at these photos is making me miss London now…but it’s getting me excited for fall weather outfits in LA.
