New Season Inspiration – What’s Yours?

Looking at some of the new drops in my favourite online stores you could be forgiven for thinking that we are in a fairy tale and we are all to be princesses for the coming season. The amount of pink, crystals, ruffles and bows is enough to give you sugar overload!

But on the other hand if you are an Instagram fan you may know that many of the most popular accounts are pared back and minimalist and that monochrome rules. So which camp are you in? Or will you be straddling both depending on how you feel in the morning when you get dressed? There is no harm in that approach except that you might find you have a wardrobe full of one off pieces that don’t work together.

If you have read any of my previous posts on discovering your personal style (also herehere and here) you will know that I recommend you collect images from magazines, blogs and sites like Pinterest and Instagram. And the start of a new season may be just the time to reinvent your personal style. Fashion should be fun and should reflect the way we feel, after all there is far too much doom and gloom in the world – especially when the weather turns wintery – so what you wear should bring you joy, not stress you out.

    Love the Italian chic but my drama queen alter-ego also likes the boho floaty dress.
