Triple Temptation: Brightening Baubles


Natalie Statement Necklace // Riviera Dream statement earrings // San Diego Statement Necklace

At this time of year I’m always super keen to get into spring trends and one of the biggest this season is (again) going to be pastels. The only problem is, in high winds, belting rain and temperatures struggling to reach 5 degrees, it feels a little impractical to be breaking out the palest shades never mind the risk of looking like a fashion fool.

My solution until the sun comes back and the temperatures rise a bit is to use accessories to channel the look, namely these J.Crew-esque baubles in candy brights and sorbet shades at high street prices. As usual it’s Accessorize that have the best selection of well priced and well designed pieces with all of these on my spring wish list.

What do you think readers? Can you be tempted?

Spotted: Warehouse SS12

Last season one of my favourite high street stores was Warehouse, without a doubt. It really had every trend covered at a great price point and didn’t lack quality, unlike other high street brands.

So I was excited to see their take on the Spring/Summer 2012 collections and share them with you here. Last week, I was afraid some of you took me too literally when I shared Topshop’s SS12 collections. Throughout January I’ll be sharing other pre-season collections and hopefully you will see themes emerge and pick out some trends that you’ll be rocking come the warmer weather, whilst making sure that any early buys work for your Summer wardrobe too.

I couldn’t see myself wearing what basically amounts to pastels when I started to look at early SS12 pictures but I’m starting to warm to them, especially the clever mixing of tones within one colour palette and the flashes of neon accenting.

Sports chic is a trend that seems to surface regularly in fashion and I love this zippered nude top. The minimal details lend an expensive look to this trend.

Always a fan of print, I’m already thinking about how I can make this work in my wardrobe – my money’s on a printed pencil skirt, made wearable with a colour blocked top.

And lastly, the most wearable trend here I think. It’s got your occasion wear sorted, works for the formal office and feels the most familiar. Think Desperate Housewives and you’re there.

So, how are you feeling about this selection readers? I’d love to hear if you’re warming up to the trends and how you’ll be wearing them…
