The Holiday Shop

22 Apr

Although it’s still only April and the weather has been beyond awful with showers, hail stones etc.. the high street is awash with colour. The Aztec, Tribal and Pastel trends luckily lend themselves perfectly to a holiday wardrobe! I always think its best to buy a few things as soon as the summer clothes come in even if you aren’t lucky enough to be seeing the sun for a few months! One of my absolute favourites is this coral skirt from Zara, I wasn’t totally sold on the half skirt half sheer initially, but it’s a summer holiday must! The holiday staple has to be these denim shorts from H&M with the tribal detailing on the pockets and waistband which gives them a little edge. I had to include a printed pant in the holiday shop as they are the current high-street trend splitting opinion! Are they really wearable for every size and style? There are loud and muted options available but the best place to try out this new trend is on holiday…why not try these tropical printed trousers from Oasis? Pair with a plain tank or shirt and really make the trousers the centerpiece! H&M and Forever 21 make up the majority of this holiday haul, they are so affordable and have options for every style and size. Save your spending on wardrobe staples and winter essentials!

Now comes the tough part…how to get this all into one carry-on bag?!

Get Bright Get Right!

22 Jan

The new looks this season are BRIGHT! We can’t seem to let go of the colour-blocking trend which we saw sweeping the catwalk and high street last year! The great thing about brights is that you don’t need a lot to really liven up your outfit just a touch here or there will give you that spring feeling a little early! I’m loving this coral shade so pretty (actually I had to re-do this post to edit out some of the many many coral/orange items I had chosen!). If your workplace is relaxed on colour I would highly advise these high-waisted trousers from Forever 21 paired with a crisp white shirt would be so refreshing for Spring! Another great option for a quick work to night out look would be to pair this hot pink peplum top (Awear) with a pencil skirt, it’s feminine but well-cut for a working wardrobe. I have of course thrown in many casual items like these pink skinny jeans from River Island, a bright blue top from Forever 21 and coral boat shoes also from River Island easy to mix and match with tamer shades!

My favourite item here has to be the illuminous yellow laptop case from ASOS the perfect injection of BRIGHT!!

Welcome to the Jungle

1 Aug

Animal prints! Yes absolutely everywhere… Leopard and snake seem to be the popular choices and probably the most wearable for an everyday look (Zebra stripes tend to be less discreet!). So I’ve picked a few pieces from the high street stores, there was literally too much to choose from! Some people tend to shy away from animal print so I’ve chosen some print accessories that anyone could pull off like this cute leopard print watch from ASOS and this weekend bag from River Island.The best way to ease yourself into animal prints is using a scarf or printed flat shoes paired with jeans, trousers or LBD. Word of advice – once you buy one animal print scarf, shoe or accessory it invariably leads to more!
