I’m so ready for summer now, who’s with me? The snow is just not practical anymore, the first time it snowed it was amazing after that…meh! I’m dreaming about my summer holidays, and I have already started to browsing online for holidays, I bet I’m not the only one, you might have even booked one already!
I had a lovely day out with the family at Intu potteries, there is so much to do for the family, the shopping centre has made so many changes over the years. We went shopping for a few hours, we then went to Pizza Express for dinner. I would defiantly recommend the lasagne and dough balls they are amazing! We then went to the Cinema just round the corner to watch Peter Rabbit, Popcorn and slush puppies where a big hit! The potteries has so much to do for families and you could easily spend the day there, there is plenty of car parks and shops for everyone!
The Potteries also currently have a flower mannequins in the centre until 6th may, I would go and check this out, they all look brilliant! each mannequin is dressed in flowers in the latest trends this Spring/Summer. They also have a competition on, if you can guess how many flowers have been used on one mannequin you can win a £50 gift voucher to spend in any of the shops.
I noticed that the shops are all full of Spring/Summer wear, the winter sales are also everywhere right now and I have already picked up some key pieces for next winter in the sale. I think now the shops have also changed season this is making me want a holiday even more, I have picked up a lovely jumpsuit in the sale for my first holiday piece.
Whilst I was shopping at the weekend at Intu Potteries , I noticed 4 key trends for this Spring/Summer the first one is Lavender there are so many different shades pink lavender, Spring Crocus, Ash Rose and Almost Mauve, I’m a big fan of all of the shades and have noticed I already have a few items in those shades.
The next trend is PINK if you haven’t seen pink in the shops where have you been hiding? as this is a big trend and has been for a while now. The shops are full of pink this is a very easy trend to follow and one that doesn’t need to be expensive.
Metallics is also a trend that is popping up in the shops again, I don’t think this is a trend that really leaves. So this is also a very easy trend to follow and can do this just by a handbag or a pair of shoes. What do you think of the trends at the moment? are there any trends that you love.
I thought I would show you a few of the key items I picked up whilst updating my wardrobe for the new trends this Spring/Summer. I decided to follow the Love lavender trend as you can see I picked up some amazing pieces! Everything I picked is from Topshop so everything is still in store if you fancy a shopping trip!
The bag is lovely and the perfect size! I manage to fit so much into this bag, and I have had so many compliments already. I really like the Gold stud detailing on the bag and the gold chain, the bag looks a lot more expensive then what it is. With the strap and the opening of the bag makes this look very designer, the opening is unlike any other bag I own, very easy to open and shut and keeps everything safe in side. I paid £32 for the bag which is a great price for a bag of this size, the bag is the pink lavender shade.
The shoes are white converse, I don’t think you can go wrong with converse I pick up a new pair most Summers as there is nothing better then a fresh white pair of converse. They are just so comfortable easy to style! and I’m yet to find an outfit that they don’t go with, they just look perfect in the Summer with a dress. Schuh currently have so many pairs in! I love the new colours they have a pink lavender colour which is so pretty, I love the gold detailing that they have added to the shoes. Most pairs of converse are the same price the white pair is £50
The jeans are also Topshop they are a lighter pair, I think in the Spring/Summer you defiantly need a light pair of jeans they look lovely with sandals and summer tops. The colour I normally get is the light blue bleach effect, the pair I’m wearing in the pictures are the Jamie style from Topshop which are high waisted they retail at £40. I find the jeans to be long wearing and to fit me well.
The blouse is also Topshop which is the Almost Mauve shade, I have seen this blouse all over Instagram lately! so if you want this blouse I would pick one up quick as I know there selling out quick. I have noticed they have started selling more colours now,I think I need the Khaki shade next. The blouse retails at £29 which is a good price for this top, this top can be dressed down for in the day I wore mine with converse, or you can add back jeans and a pair of heels for the evening! I love the buttons on this blouse and the shape.
The Earrings are a trend that have been around a while, The tassels I went for are the smaller pair they did have longer ones. I think the pair I have picked are great if you’re undecided on the trend or not brave enough for the long tassels, as much as I love the trend I think the smaller pair suit my style better. The shade is also Pink Lavender, I picked them up in a pack of 3 similar styles to this pair, they where priced at £8.50 for the 3 pairs.
*What do you think of my outfit? What trend are you currently loving? could you see yourself wearing the pink Lavender trend?
Lots Of Love,
