Right now it's all about spring! The beginning of warmer weather and time to ditch the layers for a brighter, lighter and happier wardrobe. For this post I just want to share a few of my recent purchases and what I've been up to on the fashion front. I got my first tattoo recently and I absolutely love it. I've wanted a swallow for so long and decided to have it done for my 21st birthday. The swallow is an old school tattoo that sailors used to get. For me it symbolises freedom, happiness and a new stage in my life! Tradionally, the swallow never flies too far away from home and I liked that because family is really important to me and no matter where I go in life I know I'll always have them to come home to.
I have bought quite a few pieces lately but in the spirit of spring savings, I'm going to share with you my top 3 finds for updating your wardrobe this season. All found in Primark and all under £10, perfect on a student budget.
1. Sunglasses, £2.00
The round lenses are bang on trend and the mirrored style is a new take on the usual black shades. They look far more expensive than they are. The anchor necklace is by Divine Trash and was bought at London Fashion Weekend, T shirt by Topshop.
2. White clutch, £8.00
3. Pink Plimsoles, £4.00.
The pastel pink colour is perfect this season and will go great with all your summer clothes. I wore mines with my Topshop denim skirt and a pair of tights in the evening. Wear them with bare legs and a pair of white pop socks on a sunny day.
Another big trend at the moment is Sport Luxe and on the high street fashion trainers are everywhere! My boyfriend bought me this lovely little New Balance pair that I had been after for a while. The bright blue and yellow will add colour to any outfit and they really can be worn with anything. Mix and match with dresses, jeans, shorts and skirts for endless spring looks!
Foot Asylum, £65.00
This week at uni I've been working on my group fashion brand Camden Designs so been quite busy meeting with design students in the Art school and making final preparations for our presentation. It's quite an exciting project and the aim is to launch a new collection called 'Elite' with us providing the business side of things eg, marketing, advertising, promoting, social media.
