S/S’12 and all those great new trends and colours we’re yet to wear! I wear black and navy blue so often that I long for bright colour pops when spring comes around.
Trend-wise I love the Tropicana prints at Stella McCartney, Salvatore Ferragamo and Dior. Tropical prints featuring palm trees, parrots, surfers and even mermaids (Versace) have .
Colour-wise, I love the shades of rich blues and greens; I presume that when Spring / Summer colours are presented each year very often they’re pale pastel shades so as not to alarm us? Pretty but also pretty plain. I prefer the bold strong colours that filter through as the season progresses.
And boy am I getting ready to wear them.
Now I’m of the nearest Tiki bar for a piña colada, while I wait for some tropical sunshine.

The best thing about January is the prospect of a new year, a new mind set and less importantly but more fun, a new set of colours to introduce into your wardrobe. Most of the clothes here are high street, mainstream shops tend to address and implement new season colours as soon as the January sales signs go up. (Nothing, however, makes me not want to buy something cheap from last season, than the rails of fresh, crisp spring colours for the new season).
I wore this Warehouse cardigan back-to-front because the weave in the lace is too loose to wear it the right way ’round with out another top underneath. A second top would’ve ruined the look by taking away the pretty simplicity of the lace. I took the label out of the inside of the cardigan as it would have been seen at the front neckline. The simple pale turquoise pencil skirt and hot pink clutch (both Primark) were a perfect way of introducing colour to the look and the thick gold chain adds a little edge to an otherwise pretty look.
