FASHION: What's in for Spring/ Summer?

It feels like summer is around the corner and we can finally pack away our heavy jumpers and swap them for more light and airy clothing;

Here are some of the items I love for this Spring/Summer. 

LINEN

This trend has probably come from our love for anything organic, we are eating cleaner, buying organic vegetables and using natural beauty products, so why wouldn't this reflect in our clothing as well. The high street is brimming with options and I want them all! Here are a few of my best picks.

Fashion: The Shirt Now

The shirt has been a must have piece for a few seasons, but it has never been more interesting than it is now. It has evolved from your boring office wear to playful day wear and chic evening wear. Updated with prints, ruffles, ties, pleats and more. Shirts are so versatile, they can be worn casually with jeans, or dressed up slightly with a pair of faux leather trousers and heels, but can also be worn androgynously, a bit oversized with some suit trousers and a pair of flats. A great layering piece with playsuits and pinafores as well.
