Looking forward to spring

Things I love about spring: daffodils

Today it's officially the end of winter, and I can't tell you how happy that makes me. It's already been lighter and sunnier and - it may be me imagining it, but - I swear I can see a bit more of a spring in people's step. (Is that why they call the coming season spring?) These ...

Currently coveting: florals

Floral maxi dresses

Florals have been around for a while but they're everywhere this season. You may remember it was one of the key trends I picked out for spring and summer. They're even being worn head to toe - accessories and all - which may be a little much for me. I'm not normally one for bearing blooms but ...

What I have been pinning lately

Hello Spring in wildflowers

This week's 'pinning lately' has an unintentional floral theme. Think I'm unconsciously craving something because we were surrounded by snow when we should have been launched, head-first, into the colour, warmth and newness that is the first few days of spring? (I'm sorry to talk about the weather but I can't help it, I'm British). Anyway, here's ...

DIY fashion inspiration: transparent bags

Ladies, I'm afraid we may have to embark upon that most postponed of tasks: clearing out the handbag. Bags in transparent materials were all over the spring summer 2013 catwalks and they're completely incompatible with the contents of most of my bags: ancient receipts, fluff, chocolate bar wrappers... you know the things. This trend means the contents ...

Last week I blogged about some of the biggest fashion trends seen on the spring summer 2013 catwalks. As with every season, some trends deserve to take off, but others should go straight to their fashion grave. Here are the trends I will be giving a wide berth. Crop tops Apparently, the midriff is the new erogenous zone. Now ...

2013 spring and summer fashion trends

Marc Jacobs Spring summer 2013 bold stripes

Last week I shared Phoebe's take on the trends that will be big in weddings in 2013. There's a lot of common ground between wedding styling and fashion. So what are the big trends we're likely to be wearing this year? I've taken a look back at the styles seen at the SS13 fashion weeks - both on ...

Reiss Spring Summer 2013

Reiss fashion SS13

We'll be talking a lot about trends this month - both in fashion and weddings. I'm not an advocate for blindly following trends but sometimes they can give you an idea you can interpret and make your own. I'm afraid I really struggle to muster enthusiasm for winter fashion, so as soon as the new year ...

What we are wearing: florals

I'm in denial that it's grey outside and that one day last week I woke up to a covering of snow. As far as I'm concerned, spring has officially sprung, and that means colour, flowers and looking forward optimistically to plentiful sunshine. I think this floral kimono from Joe Browns* will be perfect in the coming ...
