If you read last weeks blog post or follow me on Instagram (@_adamkay_) then you’ll know that earlier this month I was lucky enoughย to attend London Fashion Week, thanks to my wonderful girlfriend who booked it for us as part of my Christmas present.

I was also extremely lucky to receive tickets for the AW17 Joshua Kane show, held at The London Palladium, and renowned in the press recently as LFW’s biggest show yet! Fashion Week was an amazing experience, for me as a photographer – I was able to photograph a tonne of street style (Available to view on my blog next week!) and as a fashion lover I was able to be at the event and soak it all up but also, see my first fashion show – which was incredible.

You can see everything we got up to at LFW in my video below, I hope you enjoy it…

Casual, monochrome summer look

   

  

Monochrome looks have become very popular recently and I am a huge fan, so I thought it only right to share a monochrome look that I’ve loved this summer. 
My t-shirt is from Topman and it features small black palm trees all over, with big block words reading “South Cali.” – I love the print and feel it just has a really summery feel to it. The sleeves are pre-rolled up, which just makes life so much easier, there’s no worry that they’re not the same length or that they’re falling down.

If it’s not clear already, I really like these black super skinny shorts, I have worn others though don’t worry, but for this monochrome look it was only right to pair the t-shirt with these! 

Finally, my shoes. These are Converse “Sawyer” Style low-tops in white leather, and I bloody love them. At first I was petrified to remove them from the box, in fear that I’d spill something all over them, but they’ve stayed pretty clean *takes sigh of relief*. They’re a very minimal style converse, which is really why I love them and I’ve not seen them around before which is an extra bonus!

Hats & Hawaiian Prints – Smart Summer Look 2

                       

River Island Hat / River Island Hawaiian Shirt / Topman Super Skinny Shorts / River Island Brogues / Storm Sunglasses

In my last post I shared a smart summer outfit, today’s post is a bit of a part 2. This look is a little more adventurous, due to the Hawaiian prints but if you’re willing to give it a go, I think it can definitely work. 

Once again, I went with simple, black super skinny shorts; they work well with everything and I really like the skinny fit. Also, I chose to wear my brown brogues, as I said in my last post they’re smart but still have a modern, clean look! 

I’ve often been scared to try more daring prints, which is why I went with this Hawaiian shirt. It incorporates the bold patterns, but uses more modest, neutral colours. 

The final thing I added to this outfit was my hat, I’ve seen a lot of people wearing hats at the  moment and really wanted to get one myself. After a while trying on different styles and colours I eventually settled for this brown coloured Fedora hat. I really like how it looks with this outfit; I think it is just a subtle but stylish add-on.

Newย Look Striped Shirt / Topman Black Super Skinny Shorts / River Island Brogues / Storm Sunglasses

I’m currently in Lanzarote, soaking up the sun with my gorgeous girlfriend. A couple of nights ago we went out for a meal, so I thought I would do a little outfit post showing what I wore.

It’s super hot here so I went for a simple and light outfit that wouldn’t leave me like a blob on the floor. However, although I wanted to keep cool, I also wanted to look smart; I opted for a short sleeve, mint green and white striped cotton shirt and some black super skinny shorts. I kept a few buttons open at the top of the shirt to avoid being too hot. To keep up with the smart look I paired my outfit with some tan coloured brogues that have white soles; I really like these shoes and think they look smart but still keep up with a modern, clean look.
