I do love a good layering piece and these kimonos, both from New Look are perfect for the spring/summer throw on!
This first one (£24.99) is a just so pretty with the flowers and navy blue background.
This velvet/devore kimono (£32.99) is gorgeous and works well day or night. I love the pink pop of colour.
I love the bomber trend but am a bit nervous of all the really colourful ones. So when I saw this in New Look I was sold.
This is a lovely silver bomber with subtle embroidery detail on the shoulder/lapels. I absolutely love the colour and I think this looks way more expensive than £34.99. This goes really nicely with dresses as well as the more obvious jeans and t-shirt combination.
Hopefully a classic version of trend that will I will keep reaching for.
So it probably comes as no surprise that blush pink is my new favourite colour and I have slowly been accumulating a few items in that colour palette.
First is the beautiful lace skirt from Zara (£29.99). Its just a simple pencil skirt that is totally elevated by the lace and more importantly the colour. I am wearing it with a lovely gold-flecked t-shirt also from Zara (£15.99).
Next is this cut-out bomber jacket also from Zara. Again the colour for me is everything but the laser cut out detail is really pretty and unique. Bombers are very in this season and I think this is a good investment as I think it will still be relevant next year and year after!
I thought it would be cool to include this bomber jacket from New Look (£24.99) that my daughter begged me for. It is a lovely blush satin and looks super cute with loads of different outfits. She definitely loves it!
Whilst in New Look I also got myself this zip-front mini skirt (£19.99). Although it isn’t completely pink it has lots of pink in it which is what drew me in! Worn with the same Zara t-shirt as earlier.
Of course I had to include my new Asos jacket here too.
Finally from Forever 21 is this pretty midi dress with lace detail on the sleeves (£25). This is a darker blush but still so pretty and easy to wear. I love the lace detail as it add something special to a simple dress.
I thought I would also include some accessories in this post that I am loving in this palette –
Pink scarf H&M (£9.99)
Blush Leopard scarf Zara (£12.99)
Also had to put in they picture of these H&M Beauty nail polishes gorgeous blush tones!
Other blush pink items I have purchased over the months have featured in their own posts but I thought I would link them here –
Pink Cuffed Cargo Trousers
Cos Asymmetric Pink Blouse
I love this woven clutch from New Look – it was reduced from a bargain £15.99 to a even bigger bargain of £12.99!
I love the long gold chain so it can be worn over your shoulder or even cross-body. The chain can also be tucked away so it becomes a lovely clutch.
It is huge so can fit in lots of essentials for daytime or evening!
I think sequins can be made to look cool and not too overdressed. I particularly love a good sequin skirt and found these two on Asos whilst browsing for an evening wedding reception outfit.
The first is actually a dress but looks like a skirt and top – this works really well as the top is simple and subtle and really balances out the sequins on the skirt. It’s the TFNC Midi Dress With Sequin Leaf Wrap Skirt (£25 reduced from £50).
Second is this absolutely stunning Rock & Religion Mermaid Sequin Midi Skirt (£29 reduced from £47.50). I love the combination of the simple black polo neck and the very glam skirt.
And finally an old sequin skirt from New Look paired with an assymetric knit from River Island.
I am definitely ready for Christmas party season now!
I spotted these gorgeous espadrilles in the New Look sale for £5 each (reduced from £10) and I couldn’t resist! My daughter now wears a size 3 (just) and so I snapped up one for her and one for myself in size 7. They are so comfy and pretty and I loved having matching shoes!!
Three shoe posts in row – oh dear..!!
I love the boho look but often it can be hard to pull off, but this top/tunic is from New Look (£19.99) makes it easy. I love the shape of this, with the elasticated neckline and slightly longer length. I also really like the navy blue with the grey embroidery.
