So you may remember that a few months back I talked you through my 4 top picks for spring (and summer) 2015, which you can read here if you haven’t already ! Well the stores are now having their sales and autumn stock is fast approaching, but that doesn’t mean it’s too late for your fave spring/summer looks, especially if you still have holidays booked like I have!
So because all the sales are now on (yay!) I thought I would recap some of the items I have picked up over the past few months, give you some ideas of how to wear them and link through to some fab pieces that you are going to want to snap up before they are gone 🙂
So the first look I talked about was the seventies vibe and I can tell you this is something I am only too happy to embrace fully!
My wardrobe is now full of seventies inspired pieces from flared jeans to flower crowns and I don’t know how I ever got through spring or summer without them! Needless to say I will be bringing most of these items back year after year because they match my personality so well!
Anyway, here are some of the items I bought:
Flower crown – Primark
Smock Dress – Primark
Hat – Tesco
Black palazzo – Tesco
Camel and suede:
Camel proved to be a little bit harder for me to pull off! My colouring is pretty fair so doing camel colour in a large go really doesn’t match my tones, however I found ways to make it work!
If you do have darker skin and hair, camel works well for you, so definitely look for longline camel coloured coats or even a skater dress/pinafore for a truly standout style
For me I picked up a couple of camel coloured suede items as these looked the best/highest quality but still for good prices, which is why I have combined these two 🙂
Camel skirt – Primark or Tu at Sainsburys
Camel shorts – H&M
I didn’t actually buy anything new which had fringing on it as I already owned a good amount, but the easiest way to do this is with an accessory! If you are feeling brave Primark have an amazing black fringed skirt which has such beautiful movement to it and is a real statement piece, however I couldn’t justify purchasing it as I wasn’t sure what to wear it with!
Here are items I would recommend you take a look out for in the sales:
So I hope this recap helped and gave you some ideas of where to go to pick up some items last minute! Don’t forget as well that loads of these pieces are definitely worth the investment as will be easily re-wearable/seasonally interchangeable (I will do a summer clothes for winter post in due course!) so don’t feel bad about spending your hard earned pennies on items like this so late in the season 🙂
Let me know what your favourite items of clothing have been this spring/summer in the comments below!
Lots of love, Leanne xx
