Let’s Go Retro: 70s style

The SS15 catwalks were awash with 70s throwbacks of floppy hats, garish prints and lots of denim from the likes of Stella McCartney and Tommy Hilfiger.

Now we all love a statement piece, but I think this is a trend worth getting on board with, and I think the easiest way to nail the trend without looking like a complete reject is to think 70s boho with a 90s vibe – think crochet, denim and layering if you will.

Here I have grouped some of the main statement pieces to get you into this trend from some of  my favourite retailers, first up New Look:

70's Style favourites from New Look
Affordable fashion, student discounts and bright and vibrant prints, oh New Look how I love you! The block heels, the tassels, the slip dresses – there is something for everyone if you want just a hint of 70s or a proper blast from the past, an hour or two in New Look will definitely hook you up! I personally am lusting the suede mini skirt, a nice hippy top and I will be a happy bunny.
70's boho
Number two on my list is ASOS. A collection of goodies from lots of shop all in one place, they have got the trend down! I am in love with the maxi denim skirt, which can be tricky, but they have got the perfect shape so you don’t look frumpy. I’d team it with the super tasselled handbag for drinks with the girls.
that 70's show
Last on my list is BooHoo. They take things to a younger hippy feel, think festival chic. It’s all about the crochet shorts and the floppy hat, all you’ll need is a cute pair of sandals and you are set. Coachella eat your heart out!
Will you be rocking the seventies vibe this summer? Let me know your favourite picks – any excuse to shop!

Pretty in Pink

“May I admire you again today?” – Duckie (Pretty in Pink)

I know I have already posted a shopping guide for spring in pretty pastels but on my hunt for new dresses, I saw so many pretty pink things that I just couldn’t resist sharing.

I can’t pull off pink, well not in the OTT way that I would love to, but it can’t hurt to look now can it?

Here are some of my favourite picks from the best high street stores the UK – and the tinterweb – has to offer.

What will you be buying?

Pretty in Pastels

Well Spring may not have sprung just yet, but when you’re killing time at work like I am, you can’t help but plan your new wardrobe.

Now, I’m not a flowers kinda girl, but I do love me some pretty pastels. So, after some painstakingly extensive research – and three cups of tea – I bring you my wishlist for Spring.

What’s on your wishlist?
