- Outfit of the Day: Somerset House...

Somerset House is a place I've heard a lot about. As the primary location for London Fashion Week during 2009-2015, it's been graced by the world's biggest designers, supermodels and celebs looking the part. Despite the upcoming fashion week relocating to Soho, Somerset House remains big in the fashion industry.

A few days ago, I caught up with the lovely Carolin who kindly offered to take some outfit snaps for me. Luckily it was a nice day, so off to the Fountain Court we went!


Top: H&M
Jeans: ASOS
Duster Jacket: Matalan*
Necklace: Happiness Boutique*
Rose Gold Bangle: Orelia*

The top is a recent purchase from H&M. Blue is probably my favourite colour to wear, so the gorgeous deep shade immediately caught my eye. I thought I'd extend the blue with my choice of eye liner as I love the different dimension it gives off.I love the added texture from the ribbed detail and it seems like the polo-neck trend is here to stay across AW15. It's also available in white, black and striped. I'd love if they did a forest green shade, if anyone sees one similar please give me a heads up!

Does anyone follow the dark blue and black should never be worn together rule? Because in my opinion rules are there to be broken, as I love this combo. I styled the polo-neck with my trusty black skinny jeans from Asos and duster jacket from Matalan. I've been wearing this so much recently, it really is the perfect transitional piece before we snuggle into our Winter coats!


Oh and yep. Does anyone else hit a wall during photoshoots and just don't fancy having any more taken?...

...yep, me too!

What do you think of this outfit? Let me know in the comments below!

  27. You look lovely! I had never heard of that rule because I wear dark blue and black together all the time. I might need to check out Asos for jeans, I can't find a nice black pair in the highstreet :)
