Window shopping new seasonal trends! #1

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!

Clothing – New Look AW13 preview Jewellery Stella & Dot

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.

Also featured Linda Earrings, Christina link bracelet and Artemis Cuff All available online at my boutique
Shoes – Zara, Top – Dorothy Perkins, Tech wallet in Blue and Union Square Scarf in Midnight Bloom from Stella & Dot
A few more picks I would recommend from Stella & Dot would most definitely be the Tech Wallet and the Union Square scarf in Midnight Bloom.  Bring out your inner rock goddess, put on your faded black or grey jeans, team up with a plain tee and the ever essential biker jacket, the new Tessa Necklace with these few pieces you’re ready to rock and roll!
So you can see, it’s clear this wonderful bold, colour is here to stay and will definitely be a staple in your wardrobe this AW13!
I don’t know about you, but even though I love the sunshine, you just can’t beat getting wrapped up in all the amazing autumnal trends!
Right, I’m off to kit my son in the upcoming seasonal trend for children all across the UK aged 4-16! Yep his school uniform. We are both very excited as he will be going in full time so it’s a pretty important year for us both as I have been a stay at home mum for 5 years now and it’s just been the 2 of us so I’ll be losing my home buddy but on the positive, he’s ready for this chapter in his life as am I.  It does mean I’ll be able to focus more on my business and take my time scouring through the rails at my favourite shops!!   Oh and what do you know his school colours are……BLUE!! 
Until next time lovelies!
