Ahh, the sun has come out for more than two days in a row! Is it officially summer yet?! Either way, I’ve been eyeing up some amazing pieces online and thought that I’d share them with you too. I talked about a few trends I’m loving this season in my latest Fashion Forecast videoover on my channel and have noticed lots of them popping up in store and online. I’ve pulled together my favourites and even ordered a few to show you in a video on my channel plus you’ll being seeing the pieces I’ve bought on the blog over the next few weeks!
Mango have really made their way in to my go-to shopping brand list. I love everything they are coming out with out the moment. Here are a few things I’ve been loving, I even purchased a few!
Starting with some jewellery; I’ve really been interested in geometric earrings lately. I think they add a new edge to an outfit and finish off the look.
Sticking with Mango, I’ve also raided their sunglasses section! I currently only own designer sunglasses (Chanel, Miu Miu & Ray Ban) but I wanted to branch out and try some new styles. I wasn’t sure if the new styles would all suit me so I thought it best to start with some high street ones and make sure they do before purchasing either a designer version or just sticking with them.
I wanted to try the clear frame trend with these cute blush pink square sunnies.
I’ve been really inspired by the white sunglasses trend at the moment. My dream pair would be the Celine ones but these will do for now!
One of the trends I spoke about in my Fashion Forecast video was BUCKLES. Especially on sandals and shorts. These sandals are perfect and I really like this mustard colour for summer.
That leads me on to the buckled shorts. A HUGE trend this season and one I am particularly fond of for it’s ease and comfiness and of course chicness.
Boiler Suits are my new obsession and this one really reminds me of a Chanel one I’ve seen recently. I love that they are a complete outfit, no fuss. All you have to do is have some fun with the accessories and throw in a statement shoe et voila! An outfit!
If you guys have been following me for a while, you’ll know that Zara is perhaps my all time favourite high street store. Now, I can admit the actual store can sometimes be messy, why they haven’y given up folding everything on tables yet I don’t know but the website is almost like flicking through a magazine editorial. It’s visually stunning. Hence why I’m often shopping on there. Here are a few pieces I’m desperate to get my hands on.
If you haven’t seen this dress yet, where have you been? I’ve been eyeing this up for weeks and now of course every blogger and their mum has gone and bought. Luckily I’ve found an alternative (the next dress I’m going to show you) that is slightly different and not as popular. I can’t deny however that this is still gorgeous.
So, if you want a slightly different alternative, I have the perfect dress for you. This one is slightly neater and I love the puff sleeves, not normally my kind of thing but on this dress it works.
Words can’t even describe how badly I want these heels and the second they restock them in my size, they shall be mine! A perfect statement shoe to wear with jeans, trousers, a skirt or a dress, these shoes will add a little colour to any outfit.
More shoes. What else is new. Mules are one of my favourite summer shoes and they are easier to wear than you might think. These stunning floral fabric mules will add so much to a simple jeans and tee outfit.
And finally from Zara, I’ve been looking for a new pair of black strappy heels. These fit the bill perfectly. I love the square toe; very Celine or Jacquemus. I think the little studs make them a bit different and we all know a kitten heel is in this season plus easier to walk in. The cross over toe straps and the winding straps up the leg are an edgy touch. Win win.
Lastly, Topshop. I haven’t been overly keen on Topshop lately, I feel like it’s aimed at teenagers a lot and I can’t find anything I like in store. However, online I found three items which I liked.
First of all these linen trousers. Linen was one of the trends I spoke about in my Fashion Forecast video and something I’ve been diving head first in to lately. These trousers are great and look super cool and comfy while still being on trend.
Another trend I spoke about in the Fashion Forecast was shorts. I’ve already shown you a pair of linen shorts (Mango) so I ‘d thought I’d show you a pair of leather shorts. In the video I talked about how these would be hard to style however this pair would be great with a plain white tee.
And lastly, another pair of shoes. These toe post sandals are almost identical to a designer pair I was willing to spend £150 on! So thanks Topshop for recreating them and saving me some money!
