During the first day of our press trip my outfit for day one consisted being dressed in all monochrome which is usually my signature style day to day. In true Florentine style in homage to Pitti Uomo 97 I opted for a statement tailored winter coat made from the finest Italian fabric.

I felt I blended right in doing street style pictures to capture the moment being in Firenze. I needed to feel super comfy but still smart casual as most of the day was being spent on planes, buses, trains and taxis. But, just imagine lugging round a suitcase and my weekend bag between destinations.  Honestly Italy is so full of culture, history and the local people are so warm and welcoming here for which I am so grateful.

Outfit dilema’s – I realised when I got there for the first time in my life I had under packed even though it was a short trip. Who’d have thought my blogger peers who are reading this will laugh at this. I’m known for bringing ten times the amount I need. I didn’t have a proper outfits planned for my daytime wears so I put this together last minute. I wanted something smart casual and slightly formal for evening dinner with of course a hint of classic oxford button down shirt from Polo Ralph Lauren paired with a All Saint’s Crew Neck Sweater.

I hadn’t packed enough clothes, so off Jen and I go on a little fashionista shopping trip to Gigli Shopping Mall down the road from our Hotel in a 10 minute taxi journey. I wore my comfy shoes again because I knew we would be walking around a lot! I opted for a faux suede Derby, Gibson bucks shoe by H & M which is a classic favourite.

From Pisa to Prato – here I’m wearing brands from the high street to designer which I also paired some skinny jeans and shoes with the outfit too. The first two photos are taken in Firenze Florence.

Art Hotel Museo in Prato – Such a beautiful place and I can’t thank them enough for putting us up here a couple of nights for the first part of our trip to experience local food, culture, wine and cuisine in Tuscany was a very unforgettable stay we loved it here very much.

When I first heard that the Italian Fashion Label was hosting a private event during London Fashion Week I knew it was going to be a great party to kick off the start of fashion week.  Having attended the very first Iceberg Catwalk show in London since it made a comeback it was definitely one of those labels to watch. Also, I’m such a big fan of their Street Wear since the label was taken over at the helm from Designer James Long their newly appointed creative director from the UK.  On Friday 13th Yes!! – I know what most were thinking in case anyone is superstitious it happened to be my lucky day as they had food catering from my favourite Meat Liquor Restaurant – just trying their burgers was delicious as I was feeling very hungry by 6pm while out and about accompanied by Aperol Spritz drinks served throughout the evening.  My outfit staple to the party yesterday evening was my signature leather jacket from Iceberg worn with a white t-shirt from Boohoo Man and Skinny Jeans with a pair of desert boots as it’s officially autumn season.  The Iceberg event was hosted at the  18montrose store in Kings Cross featuring DJ set’s from Tommy Gold, Jordss and Lifestyle Donald who entertained the crowd last night
