S/S’14 Key Trends: Tropical Print, Girlfriend Jeans and Neon

As new trends roll in each season I enjoy seeing what i can make work for me and things that i will pass on. I can be quite fickle with fashion, which is something I’m trying to overcome and become a more sensible shopper only purchasing things that i love and will wear on repeat. 

This outfit consists of new ‘on trend’ items that have been on constant rotation for me for the past couple of months. 

The palm print relaxed blazer has hardly left my back since hubby dearest bought it for me for our anniversary. I love its easy-going structure and relaxed tailored vibe. 

The Girlfriend jeans (the River Island Eva in this case) are set to take over from the Boyfriend jeans, with a little less slouch but still super comfy. I love an ankle grazer length, i think to show a little ankle is so elegant and it highlights your shoes wonderfully.

Talking of shoes, these neon beauties are from F&F and they are uh-mazing! I really REALLY fancy the matching neon bag to go with them to finish of my look. Not to mention adding a great punch of colour to any outfit. I’m in neon Love!

Funny when my spending ban ended i wanted to purchase some pastels, turns out none took my fancy and all i’ve been buying is neon bright.. I guess that says a lot about me, give me bright’s any day 🙂

And there we have it, me dabbling with some key spring/summer ’14 trends.

What d’you think?

Are you dabbling with an new trends?

Shop the look!

    I like your palm print in the blue… such a nice variation on the green and a fresh departure. You styled it so well and those jeans fit amazingly!

    Those heels just pop. I see what you're saying about having your jeans hit at your ankle. Debbie @ ilovemylemonadelife.com

    I love the look of girlfriend jeans. I never feel right in baggy boyfriend jeans so these look right up my street. The balm print on that jacket is stunning. X
