Edeline Lee SS18 | London Fashion Week

Despite the chaos of my final school year, I made a point of clearing my schedule to see the Edeline Lee presentation this fashion week. I've seen Lee's shows for the last couple of seasons, and they always seem to stand out. This occasion was no exception.

Inspired by the life and work of Georgia O'Keef, the collection was a perfect example of art influencing fashion. The clothes lived out Lee's running narrative of strong and expressive women, with a heartfelt femininity in each garment. The bold silhouettes were reminiscent of O'Keef's signature voluptuous shapes and the colour palette that of New Mexico, where O'Keef produced some of her finest work. There was delicate stitching, audacious sleeves and turquoise accents - all of which created a wonderful collection.







Characters of Kaş

There is an endless list of things I love about travelling. Seeing new cultures, beautiful scenery, food, and adventure. But my favourite will always be meeting new people. Even if you only know them for a moment - a short conversation or perhaps a glance across a room. That small insight into a world so different to your own can be inspiring. A window into a life - a story. The waitress with a perpetual smile and contagious warmth, the man who spends his evenings welding jewellery, the woman in the shop with the colourful dresses. 

Kaş is a vibrant town filled with interesting characters. Today I'm sharing with you a series of portraits of some of the people I met during my Summer stay in Turkey. 










The Staple Sundress

The staple sundress. Maybe you found it at a street stall, or a French supermarket, or maybe it was your sister's when she was your age. It's easy to wear, it's comfortable. It's never quite like what you see on the high street, and that's what makes it special.








The Cutest Restaurant in Kaş

Having spent last Summer in Kaş, my family and I returned to the charming seaside town in Turkey with a good idea of which spots were the best. We knew our favourite restaurants, and if I'm honest, were a little tired of going to the same places. 

Wandering a street off the main road one night, we stumbled across Pell's and our holiday eating took a new turn. With candles and crystals at the door, and a roof of lemon trees draping over the tables, I was immediately drawn inside. We were served by probably the loveliest and smiley-est waitress I've ever met, there was great music and eclectic bohemian decor; the atmosphere was right up my street. 



I don't claim to know a lot about food, and it's not something I usually blog about. However I will say that it was the best and most original food I've had in Kaş. There was a lot of rosemary, dried orange slices and nuts as garnishes - very hipster and very tasty.


Bringing Back the Basket

I hinted on my twitter earlier this month that August would mark some changes to this blog. The major one is now complete - Lexi Likes has a brand new design. I'm very pleased with it and I'm hoping it will reflect the new breed of content I'm starting to produce. Thank you for all of your feedback thus far, I'm so happy you like it too. Here's to a new chapter!

Today I'm sharing another Summer outfit shot in Kas, Turkey. Kas has a wonderful bohemian, chill vibe. It's not a town for dressing up, and I've loved being able to throw on a sundress and some flip-flops every night. Although I'm excited about dressing for Autumn, I am definitely going to miss the ease of Summer evenings.








Another Day of Sun

After spending the first half of my summer working at an amazing summer job, I'm finally getting some sunshine and a holiday. My days now are largely spent by the sea (which is a happy place of mine), but it's not quite as relaxing as I'd hoped. My final year of school is looming frightfully near, as is the storm of university applications and A-levels. I'm trying to establish a balance of doing things to make the next few months easier and also savouring my last days of peace.
