I’ve been eyeing up this dress for what feels like months. I spotted it in my size a few weeks ago, and of course it came home with me.
It got me thinking about the trends I’ve been loving, and that are probably on their way out.
Basket bags started to appear all over Instagram last summer. They were calling to my vintage loving heart.
I picked this up at a Miss Ivy event at Mount Edgecombe last summer, and have been waiting for an opportunity to wear it out. I’m a little nervous about wearing it, due to the changeable British weather, currently it is full of scarves.
I know when the trend is over, if I no longer gravitate towards wearing it, the basket will work as a piece of home wear.
Ultimately it’s a basket, so it could store; blankets, cushions, shoes…
This is probably my favourite trend from last year. It’s more than just floral, this Primark dress marks the move away from embroidery with the motif on the bust, and the small flowers across the skirt.
It’s 100% cotton, with a tie string tassel back. The small details, and material make this stand out a bit more from your usual dress.
Thanks to the thin straps, it means I probably won’t be fitting it into my work wardrobe but for weekends and beach trips it’ll be perfect.
The grey cuties in this one are from Lovisa. I bought them before the Turtle Bay Launch event, I’d wanted to try the trend but was struggling to find a pair in a colour way that suited my style and Lovisa had a wall of soft toned earrings.
Since then I’ve added a red pair to my collection (thank you Nicole) and about five pairs from Primark in an array of colours.
These are my favourite thing to add to a simple outfit, to snazz things up a bit.
What trends are you not looking forward to ending?
