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?!

Perfect Pastels

22 Feb

 

These are my picks of the perfect pastels!Ice-cream¬†colours are everywhere right now even though the weather isn’t ready for them it’s always nice to pick up a few spring/summer items in advance! Although pastels can be quite muted like this blouse from Oasis, stores such as Zara, ASOS and New Look have all got a hint of neon in their pastels ensuring you won’t look too washed out… pale lilac against pale skin can make you look a little grey! However I do love the muted ice blue of these skinny trousers from River Island, a very wearable pastel for spring!¬†I just bought an apricot blazer from new look yesterday … it’s looking VERY bright currently peaking from my wardrobe considering the dull weather outside..

My favourite way to introduce pastels right now is by wearing pale violet and mint shade nails! Such as the POP Nail varnish above or what I am currently wearing Revlon Charming. The best mint shade I’ve found so far is Barry M mint green.

Pastels are a great Spring trend and there is so much colour choice making it really accessible for anyone.

*just take note too much ice cream can make you feel sick this also applies to ice-cream coloured clothing.
