Autumn / Winter 2018 Trends – Part 1 Animal Print

We are having the best Summer for weather that I can ever remember, it’s hard to imagine that in a couple of months we will be back in coats and jumpers and wooly hats!

I don’t want this lovely Summer to end but there is one thing about the approach of Autumn and Winter that I am looking forward to and that’s the fashion. I’m going to do a series of blog posts focusing on the main trends for Autumn / Winter so that you can start shopping with them in mind. The first trend (and also my absolute favourite) is Animal Print! Continue reading

The trends you need to know for Spring / Summer 2018

Christmas is over and we are fully into 2018. It’s still pitch black by 4pm and absolutely freezing but give it a month and the days will start getting longer, temperatures will go up and we might be able to start talking about Spring!

Spring brings with it new fashion and I am excited! There are loads of fantastic new trends for Spring / Summer 2018 and i’ve done a little round up below of my favourites.

I’ve chosen the trends that I think are most wearable for your average 30+ working mummy, because lets face it not all of us can walk round with our knickers showing through a transparent skirt and get away with it – I know it’s frowned on at my office and doing the school run wearing head to toe vinyl might be fashion forward but it may get you a reputation as a different sort of ‘working’ mum…

I’m going to start with my absolute favourite trend Lilac. All pastel shades are hot for SS18 but by far the hottest is Lilac. This isn’t a colour i’d usually wear but I am ready to try it! The catwalk models wore it head to toe which looks amazing but if like me you don’t usually wear this colour why not test the water with one item of clothing and see how you like it. I have added some items from the high street which are available now below.

Prince of Wales checks are hot for Autumn / Winter 2017 and I am very happy about it. I absolutely love this print because it is so versatile, grey is one of my favourite colours to wear because it goes with almost everything and I really like that this trend is accessible to everyone. Unlike some of Autumn / Winter’s trends like vinyl for example, this trend has no age limit on it so you can feel totally safe to try it out without worrying that it’s too young for you.
