Trend alert SS14

So for those of you that don’t already know. Here’s a quick two minute update on spring/summer 14’s trends to nail the look:

MONOCHROME: This season sees the return of monochrome but this time introduces one key piece of pastel pink to break up the black and white contrasts

FLORAL: Catwalks see the return of floral prints. Clash with stripes for a statement effect, one item of each and go plain with the rest of your outfit ( No need to look like where’s wally meets pay butcher)

ORIENTAL: Think light floral meets eastern promise. Bomber jackets and tailored trousers work well with this trend. A nice kimono and light denim ankle grazers also nail this trend

PASTELS: I think this has got to be my favourite this season. Such a feminine look, very calm and refreshing. And how easy is it to put on a lace lilac box top with a pair of tailored topshop trousers? Need I say more.

METALLIC: And Last but not least metallics are back, no not your granny’s favourite multicoloured sequin cardigan. Think futuristic, silver high shine tunics and bomber jackets. I bagged myself a lovely silver metallic skater dress on eBay using my bay trend tips

So why not give it a go and try the Bay Trend to give your dreary winter wardrobe a spring season update. Try it, I did mine for under £100. BARGAIN.

High street fashion for under £5

As a young mummy I still love to look scrummy. Before becoming a mum I’d spend about £200 a month on keeping up with the latest fashion and trends. £40 on a pair of shoes and the rest on clothes and accessories. And why? To look high street sassy. Now I can do just that for under £5.

Things that usually sound too good to be true probably are but unless you can’t stomach the thought of wearing something that’s been worn at least once before then this is too good and true!

How do I do it? EBAY is my answer. A few key words here and there followed by my size and there I have it; high street heaven for a low cost price on my iPhone or laptop in a couple of clicks. Now you may think of these items as second hand but what’s more on trend than vintage at the moment? Whether it’s vintage or pre loved, it’s my own new trend; the ‘bay trend’.
