jeans and trainers instagram @labelsandlondon

After a week of running around in heels, I am relieved to be able to say that today is a jeans and trainers kinda day!

If you don’t follow my Instagram already head to @LabelsandLondon for live docu-journal of my day to day and snippets of my daily outfits.

This look can be shopped in the links below.

Whoever got flats to trend; our feet are thankful.

For the longest time heels were practically the uniform for those working in the fashion industry, from shop floor through to the PR boardroom and our poor little toes need a truly deserved horizontal break. Might I also add that juggling multiple trays of coffee for the office in heels is a skill that deserves as much applause as a unicyclist on a tightrope. 

Nope, working in fashion is not as glamorous as you may well think. It’s not sitting behind your desk with admiring your pretty little Giuseppe Zanotti feet; it’s running for the tube in heels, walking stylists through the showroom while your soles burn and attending press appointments on the other side of town. 

But the troops, the real troops, are those poor fashion interns lugging samples across from one end of the city to the other, going through boxes of band aid as rapidly an Editor goes through cups of coffee. This post is dedicated to you guys! 

Here are my 5 flats for every occasion…
