What to Wear, Where

Summer is on its way! Although its still pretty chilly in England if you're jetting off somewhere a little warmer you're probably thinking about your holiday wardrobe. I'm lucky enough to be heading off to Ibiza with my friends and have been looking around the web for style inspiration and got some great ideas. I've put together a guide to what to where in some popular holiday destinations. Hope you find this helpful!

I am going have a stall at the From Cambridge...With Love fair tomorrow. Its my first fair and I am so excited about it!! It was so last minute, I actually only just planned to do it today so I'm frantically planning displays and finishing off cards but I'm loving it!

The fair is at the Guildhall on Market Square in Cambridge tomorrow from 10.30. There will be lots of gorgeous handmade and vintage things on sale as well as a tearoom. cupcakes, music, workshops and a beauty bar. It would be lovely if any of you could come along, its going to be a lot of fun.

Out Of The Blue

I have noticed so much of this blue around recently and its so good to see some bright colours in this miserable weather. At least it feels like spring inside with the heating turned up and a colour pop outfit on. I absolutely love the blue Topshop dress above but sadly it doesn't fit me. I'm still on the hunt for something similar but in the mean time I've bought this gorgeous blue skirt and a peplum top in the same shade. Both have lovely textures to them and were Primark bargains.

I'm currently working on my new gift and stationery range. These are a few mood boards I made to inspire me and help me make sure all the designs in each collection work well together.

Trend:Monochrome and Neon Yellow

Monochrome is a big trend for ss13. These graphic, futuristic prints are clean and fresh for summer and the neon yellow adds a bold, contrasting pop of colour. Team a patterned, tapered trouser with a simple black vest. Or pair a printed tee with a black skinny jean or pencil skirt. Add neon accents with simple, sleek accessories.

Red Valentino rtw Fall 2013

Red Valentino, Valentino's younger line presented their fall collection on tuesday. Hansel and Gretel inspired with folksy embroidery and full skirts straight from a fairytale.

Mens wear inspired quilted hunting jackets and mens tailoring fabrics are kept feminine with cinched waists and short hemlines.

Cute skirts and preppy sweaters are key pieces for transitioning between the seasons.

For a more grown up, evening look go for neutral colours with lace and delicate, sophisticated prints.

Bows around the waist, neck and hair and collars keep the look fresh and youthful. Detailed white blouses from spring summers' monochrome trend carry over to fall as pretty layering pieces.
There are definitely some looks here I'm going to take inspiration from. I love the cute accessories and adding some simple embroidery to a bag, collar etc would add a touch of folksy whimsy.
