Outfit of the Day: Primark Pink & Gingham

OOTD 14th April Collage 1Today’s outfit, aside from the necklace, all comes from good ole’ Primark. Can I get a whoop whoop? Actually I’d rather you didn’t. But still, impressive nah?!

OOTD 14th April Collage 2These leggings may remind you of a certain pair of Topshop treggings I sported in this recent OOTD post. I loved those treggings, you loved those treggings… unfortunately as you can see in that post they were pretty long on me and as such I struggled to wear them with certain things. I eventually, woefully, with tears streaming down my face (on the inside anyway) returned them to Toppers and had missed them bitterly since. Which was why I was DELIGHTED to spot this lookalike pair in Primark at the weekend – for a mere £5! I think they’re technically a kind of capri pant/pedal pusher (there’s a phrase I hoped to never say again) as they looked mighty short on the hanger, but on my 5’2 legs they sit at the perfect ankle basher length I’d roll them to anyway.

The jumper was only £6 and is the perfect transitional piece being nice and thin, while my be loved ugly shoes were only £14. Oh and the necklace  was £2 in the New Look sale, making this potentially the most bargains outfit ever at £27 for the whole damn thang. More money for tequila!

What do you all think of this outfit?

River Island Spring/Summer 2014 Collection: Best Of

Another day, another S/S14 collection to lust over.Now that we’re officially into March, I say it’s officially time we all cast off our scarves and throw our coats in the bin . No, I don’t care if you get frostbite and your nip-nips become razor sharp weapons – winter is over and spring is here, rejoice!

River Island are the latest high street retailer to be flaunting their new season wares all over the internet (you can check out their full S/S14 trends page by clicking that there link) , and below I’ve gathered some of the pieces into the key trends that RI look to be pushing this year. A warning in advance: you may need sunglasses just to look at this lot. One thing River Island has never been is subtle, is it?

River Island 1Trend 1: Pink, Pink, Loads of Pinks

There really is no way to escape it, this year truly is all about the colour pink. Whereas other retailers are sticking to pale shades, River Island are embracing each and every tone of pink they can get their filthy fashion hands on. Fuchsia, salmon, dusky, pastel, neon and candyfloss pinks are all getting their time to shine (quite literally in the case of that metallic skirt). River Island 2Trend 2:  Tropical/Psychedelic/Tacky-As-Hell Prints

I struggled with what to call this trend, so figured I would go with the obvious. The amount of print in the new collection is sure to make your eyes bleed as soon as you walk into your local River Island, but after a winter of dark florals and cutesy heart prints, I think it’s actually kind of refreshing. Yes, people might ask you if you’re wearing these items as some sort of joke, but what do they know? Team with your prints with other bold items to really go to town on the look.

Trend 3: Cool Toned Futuristic Space Woman Clothes

Ask yourself, what will fashion-conscious space people of the future wear? Then look above – that is what they will wear. Clean lines and cool metallics feature quite heavily in the new collection, meaning that we can look all futuristic and alien-like but TODAY – which is just great news.

So there we have it. River Island definitely seem to be going quite brave this season, but what do you think?
