I never realised summer holidays could be such a challenge as a stay at home/work from home mum(yes it’s my first time with a child of school age lol)
Normally my days start with dropping the boy of to nursery then march straight into town for a coffee and a little diary management, followed by a good scour through the high street stores for fashion ideas and inspiration – Styling ideas which I can use at my trunk shows and show my hostesses and her friends!
Now we are in full swing with the holidays, my weekly re-con has come with gruelling negotiations by my son! The general deal is he does something fun, then I get to have a little look and come home and write it up! As you can imaging this hasn’t always gone to plan.
So today’s post is going to be a quick look at one of the key trends that I have seen in the shops and their AW13 previews. I have to admit, it has been hard not to keep shopping for myself!
It is a personal favourite trend and it’s a favourite colour too! Cobalt blue(or royal blue as some would say!) Now I know it’s not new to the catwalks and it has featured heavily over the last few years. But I just love how rich and bold it is. If you’re not too confident in rocking a bright blue top or skirt, maybe look at accessories or perhaps a sassy pair of heels!

I teamed up the outfit with one of my personal favourite pieces from our new Autumn line at Stella & Dot – The Mercury Necklace, a stunning non chain based necklace. The 2 metal pieces are sewn together by hand creating this fabulous avant garde piece! The thread is coloured and also has beautiful rose gold metal nuggets to finish this beautiful statement necklace.
