In a couple of weeks I'm going to New York and I'm haunted by the tragic reality that I have absolutely nothing to wear. There's nothing in the shops that I want and nothing in my closet that feels quite right. So, what's a girl to do? Sadly I can't trot around Manhattan in my underpants so instead I'll just opt for something low key and basic (read denim and soft grey t-shirts, which I seem to think is the solution to all of life's greatest problems). But it's not what I want to wear at all. What I want to wear is Karen Walker's Resort 2014 collection and in particular the five outfits pictured above. I love the loose billowy shapes and the wonderful fact that they would show off my nicely bronzed pins. The colours are so fresh and so clean. Exactly what I want to be wearing and exactly what I will be wearing (in my head).

During London Fashion Week one of the shows I was most looking forward to was Charlie Mays. This was the first season that Charlie put on a catwalk show and I was so excited to see her collection saunter down the runway. On the day I got to shoot some of the action backstage before the show. Everything was so organized and well run. You wouldn't at all expect that this was just Charlie's third season showing.

The SS13 collection is absolutely stunning. The first look that came down the catwalk was a top and trouser velvet combo in a shade of icy blue. It was my favourite look from the entire collection and I can just imagine myself wearing it now (perfection). There's also a nude coloured biker jacket, asymmetric shorts and classic white silk shirts that would be incredibly useful in anyone's wardrobe. Charlie's collections just keep getting better and better each season as she hones in what her design aesthetic is. I already can't wait to see what see what's in store for next season.
