The Peplum Top

The peplum top makes for the perfect silhoutte this season, teamed with cigarette pants and heels it oozes elegance. For the first time this year I managed to have my morning coffee in the garden... the sun shining despite the fact it was seven am. I wouldn't be lying if I said I was a massive fan of the peplum- it hides all those lumps and bumps and dramatises even the simpliest of shapes. Seen at almost every fashion week, Marc Jacobs showcased beautiful peplum skirts in a huge array of colours, you can pick them up from any highstreet store. I have recently bought a couple from Zara... they are A-MAZING! Indulge...

Fun in the Garden

 I am soooooo happy the sun has finally made an appearance. As usual I took full advantage and worked from the garden. Despite it being a little too cold to wear this dress without any leg protection, it worked beautifully over skinny jeans! Paired with some little booties, which I discovered in a small market in Barcelona, it was the perfect balance between glamour and comfort. Not bad for what would typically be a chaotic Monday afternoon.

Layer it

Jonathan Saunders SS12 collection is perfect for now! With the weather getting warmer- although not hot enough to bare skin- what better to wear than inticately decorated pleated skirts, combined with casual knits or sweaters. I absolutely love this look. The pleated skirts and smooth silhouttes are remincisent of the 1950's, however the neon colours give it a modern, futristic feel.  I would not be lying if I told you he has quite literally saved my summer wardrobe. I have so many dresses that I never wear... inappropriate, too cold.. etc, etc. Simply throw on a close-fitting sweater and your away!

Powerful Prints

Above is Mary Kantrantzou's SS12 collection. Advised against launching her own label- her superiors told her to hold back a few seasons- she has successfully silenced her critics. Her pieces, worn by the most influential women in the fashion and film industries, are absolutely stunning! Ocean blue, mint green, fuchsia pink and ruby red mashed together in what can only be described as an oxymoronic display of colour and print. An abundance of natural imagery- flowers, birds, foliage and tropical fish juxtaposed with tins, cans, car parts and other items indicative of mans unfortunate footprint. Draped asymmetric dresses to gowns with billowing trains the collection caters for all. And perhaps most importantly, her collaboration with Topshop makes them all the more affordable. Don't mind if I do....
