LPA x Armani Exchange: Outerwear Workout

Armani Exchange Biker Jacket

This post title may sound a little strange but it will all make sense shortly I promise! Unless you dwell in perennially sunny climbs then you will know full well how important outerwear is. And I’m not talking about its importance as something that stops you getting pneumonia. I’m talking about outerwear’s vital role in our wardrobes, duh! Contrary to what your parents may have told you as a young ‘un, the purpose of a cosy coat or neat jacket is to add an extra element to any outfit. It’s the icing on the multilayer cake so as far as I’m concerned, warmth is a benefit but not necessarily a requirement. This might explain why when Armani Exchange invited me to get my style on with one of their AW14 numbers, I ignored everything of the insulating wool variety in favour of this delicious biker jacket in softest grey suede. As anyone who’s seen a few Look Du Jour posts or follows me on Instagram will know, I’m an obsessive biker jacket hoarder and own one in every shade, except grey that is… Until now. I’m kind of kicking myself that I didn’t realise how desperately I needed a grey biker jacket sooner. Softer than black but less statement that a colour pop hue, these bad boys go with just about everything as (I hope) this post will attest…

The first is of course the SKATE launch at Somerset House, which I promise I won’t start banging on about yet again. The second, I reckon, is the unveiling of Claridge’s legendary Christmas tree…

Dining at: Mazi

Mazi

As you guys have no doubt guessed by now, eating out is one of my absolute favourite things to do. With non existent cooking skills (the contents of my fridge usually consists of blueberries and Pinot Grigio) and a crazy schedule, I find that spending a few hours eating, drinking and laughing with a good friend in lovely surroundings is both blissful and the perfect way to actually catch up with the people I care about. So yeah, I eat out an awful lot but find it all too easy to repeatedly go to just one or two places. In a city like London where the sheer number of restaurants, bars and cafes can feel overwhelming and you end up back at the same places out of laziness. This is why it’s been so wonderful to discover and experience new hot spots and hidden gems, and to be able to share them with you guys, through expanding the blog to include restaurant reviews. One such absolute gem is Mazi…
