The View

A few weeks ago, over the Easter break, my family and I took a trip to Cornwall. We stayed the week in a stunning home in St. Ives, with incredible ocean views. The Instagram vibes were insane. I was in my element!

Whilst there, I made a short travel film to fuel your wanderlust and give you some good vibes. Enjoy…

For a while now I have been working on my blog, photography and Instagram aesthetic, and I have finally found and settled with a vibe that I love & I hope you are loving too. At the end of last year, my site had a full re-vamp and I published ‘Created By Adam Kay’ – my space to share blog posts about travel and fashion but also to showcase my photography and all other creative projects. I am back into the full swing of it now and absolutely love it.

To celebrate I have created a short trailer with a mixture of clips that summarise the overall vibe of ‘Created By Adam Kay’ so… if you’re a new visitor or loyal returner you can see exactly what to expect!! Enjoy…

Street style photography is something I have always loved – understandably, as a lover of fashion & aspiring photographer, it is perfect because this niche perfectly blends the two. I love browsing the Styleograph Instagram page and Phil Oh’s street style images for British Vogue. With heading to LFW this February I knew it would be a perfect time to try my hand at capturing street style images.

I love street style because it can give you the perfect style inspiration, picking out key pieces or trends that you really like and want to try out, but also because the photography can some amazingly bold looks that would most likely only be spotted at Fashion Week against the iconic black walls of 180, The Strand.

48 Hours at London Fashion Week

If you read last weeks blog post or follow me on Instagram (@_adamkay_) then you’ll know that earlier this month I was lucky enough 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…

What I Wore To London Fashion Week AW17

Today is the final day of London Fashion Week AW17, this weekend I was lucky enough to attend LFW for the first two days, as a Christmas present from my girlfriend. I had a great time capturing street style images outside of 180 The Strand (Home of LFW) and an amazing evening watching the Joshua Kane AW17 Show held at the London Palladium.

I love seeing what my favourite style influencers, bloggers and celebrities wear to Fashion Week so I thought that I would share my own outfits from the two days I was there. I kept to my personal casual streetwear style, and was really pleased with my looks.

Day One –

Winter Streetwear OOTD

OUTFIT:

 Jacket – Ralph Lauren (Sold Out) / Hoodie – Pablo (Sold Out) / Jeans – Boohoo Men’s / Hat – Topman / Shoes – Adidas Stan Smith / Rucksack – Lacoste (Sold Out)

A/W Fashion is my favourite simply because you can wear more clothes, which means layers and in my opinion, much better outfits, in Summer you typically pair 2/3 items whereas in A/W you start pushing 5/6 pieces within one look, it also allows for the addition of coats and jackets, which are my ultimate weakness – I just can’t have enough.

Winter in England has been fairly mild this year, so this has been one of my go-to outfits, a few layers but still a fairly light jacket and on the colder days paired with a hat. The base of this look is a pair of washed black biker jeans – a favourite of mine because the texture helps create a more interesting look than basic black jeans. I then chose my black Pablo hoodie (with any top underneath, but if you’re looking to add even more layers I would suggest a striped or white longline t-shirt that drops just below the hoodie) – the base of this look is fairly simple but the addition of accessories like a hat and jacket bring it all together into a more solid look.

The jacket I put with this outfit is my favourite jacket from my collection… it’s a navy embroidered bomber jacket from Ralph Lauren and I adore it! I think it’s a perfect streetwear item, especially with embroidery being so popular at the moment with brands such as Gucci –  I am always wearing it so it was 100% a worthwhile purchase. Another accessory I added to this outfit was my fur beanie, the bright orange fur worked perfectly with the colours of the embroidery on the jacket and I love it’s addition to this look. To finish off the look I wore clean white Stan Smith trainers, simply because they’re super comfy and work perfectly with any casual look.

This outfit, as I said, is definitely one of my go-to winter looks, it’s got plenty of layer to keep you warm and also has a great sense of streetwear style, the puffy bomber jacket and hoodie creating the perfect streetwear silhouette.

Adventures In Lanzarote

The Winter weather has well and truly hit the UK this week and I am definitely missing Summer! Since I wasn’t blogging most of this year, I didn’t get a chance to upload any content from my travels.
So, to keep the Summer spirits high I thought I’d share my video from my Adventures in Lanzarote this year.

Hopefully you’ll enjoy it and it’ll give you some good vibes and wanderlust ready for next year…
