Summer for me is always nautical. I love nautical stuff, as I’m sure you’ve cannily realised from my previous posts. But you don’t have to spend a fortune on trends to get something stylish and practical, and one of my favourite places for affordable fashion is Next!
After I posted a pic of my growing collection of pointed flats, I had quite a few people asking me where they were from, so I put together a Polyvore collection of a few examples at different budgets. A couple of the items aren’t the same as the ones in my picture, as they were last season’s, but hopefully I managed to find some interesting alternatives!
Happy Easter everyone! Hope you’re all having a fantastic day today!

Don’t forget, Easter’s not just about chocolate either – I say it’s also about…
(Shoes from Mint Velvet – and they’ll be available again in the first week of May!)
Eggs in general! Namely these homemade Scotch eggs I made using chorizo sausage – perfect for an Easter buffet.
How do you celebrate Easter? A family dinner, Easter egg hunt, church service, walk in the woods? Let me know!
Channeling two of this season’s hottest trends is this delicious lemon yellow coat from Zara, which caught my eye today!
The collarless coat is hot shape for this season, and it’s one that I’m just starting to warm to at the moment. It’s a classic shape that has yet to make its appearance in my wardrobe, but I’m more than happy to make the plunge now I’ve realise how flattering and feminine it can be. And in this beautiful colour, it’s even more on trend – check out the Pantone colour report for Spring 2014 here. I have to say I’ve never described a colour as being ‘freesia’, but I’m definitely going to start now!
So what do you think of the collarless coat trend? Is it a yay or a nay?
Today was Big Yellow Taxi, a super super bright yellow!
How fluorescent is this?! Ciate’s website says: “A high fashion ‘it’ statement bold yellow with a crème finish. Brighten up your talons and toes and compliment your summer wardrobe.”
Definitely not my colour, or anything I’d ever buy! What did you guys think?
