Pantone Colour of the Year 2017

Last year, I wrote a post about the Pantone Colour of the Year and what it means. If you missed it, or need a refresher, you can check it out here.

While last year’s colour was a combination of rose quartz and serenity, this year has gone back to normal with a single colour: greenery.

In contrast to peaceful and mindful thoughts that came with last year’s colours, greenery is all about energy and new beginnings. Continue reading

Pleated skirts

Trend watch: Top 5 pleated skirts

This is a new one for me. Pleated skirts are big in the autumn/winter collections so I decided to bite the bullet and pick one up that I had my eye on but wouldn’t normally wear. It’s number one on this list, but I’ve included different lengths and styles to suit everyone’s taste.

While we’re all struggling to find something light but appropriate to wear in this humidity, I got to check out what New Look has on offer for us for autumn/winter. After all, the bright side of the summer coming to an end is a new wardrobe! While there were plenty of gorgeous patterned coats, dressy night out dresses and fabulous shoes, there were three trends in particularly that stood out to me that are going to be big this year.

Trend watch: Top 5 maxi dresses

The weather is so beautiful lately, it’s time to get out the summer clothes, and one of my go-to outfits for sunshine is a maxi dress. They’re summery, comfortable and work-appropriate. For my top five, I went with nice ones that you can wear from a day in work to evening drinks and they’re all under €60. I stayed away from super dressy occasion dresses and beach maxis for now. In the interest of full disclosure, I already bought the tropical dress from Boohoo! Continue reading

Recent shoe haul

I have a tiny shoe addiction… but you would barely notice it next to my bag obsession. Shoes and bags are among my favourite things to buy, probably because they can be worn with so much, totally change the OOTD and also, no matter how you’re feeling about your size, shoes and bags will still look great. Anyhow, I lost the run of myself slightly recently, and bought a lot of shoes within a few days. By writing this post I can share my super shoe picks with you and assuage some of the guilt in the name of research! Continue reading

Trend watch: Top 5 pinafores

Pinafores are back from our childhood and very on trend at the moment and I’m delighted. I think they are so cute, very comfortable and a lot of them have pockets, and we all love a pocket! So I picked my favourite five from ASOS at the moment. ASOS ship for free all over the world and have a handy low-cost Parcel Connect or collect option for returns.

I chose pretty and causal pinnies for this post, so they will all look good with cute flip flops, pretty flats or can be slightly glammed up with ankle boots for an edgier look. Each can be easily styled with little tops worn underneath and chunky jewellery. Enjoy this youthful throwback trend!

Everything you need to know about denim

I absolutely love denim, so I’m delighted that it’s amongst the top trends once again this season.  Denim in all its forms is so flexible and I haven’t met a girl who can’t pull it off, whether they’re better off in light denim, they prefer coloured denim or they’re most comfortable in black skinnies. Whatever your preference, I’m happily celebrating this continuing trend with everything you need to know about wearing denim this season. Continue reading
