Mellow Yellow Shoes bring a ray of sunshine

With the clocks going forward in the early hours, it will be official, British Summertime will begin. And although I have seen more than a few jokes on Twitter this morning (mainly about getting an extra hour of daylight to play in the snow), I am really hoping that the arrival of BST will also mean the weather starts to improve and that we finally get to see a bit of Spring sunshine.

But just in case the sun doesn’t quite make an appearance, there is no reason why you can’t have a bit of sunshine in your wardrobe. And what better way to add a bit of brightness than in your shoes? I’m a huge fan of yellow and mustard shade shoes and always have at least one pair in my wardrobe. The fab bright colour makes a welcome addition to most outfits, and they are the perfect shade for  summer holiday sandals. This season, Spartoo has a fabulous range of yellow shoe, including a pair of Swedish Hasbeens that I have already earmarked as a must for my summer holiday. I also love the Timeless Nevis flats, cute and stripy, and a total snip at less than £20, whilst the floral printed Doc Martens are perfect for the woman who wants to avoid being a total girlie girl, yet still wants to tap into the brights trend.

(Good) Friday Shopping Focus – Evans Live Unlimited

In February I attended the first Plus Size Fashion Weekend on behalf of F&F Clothing. One of the best things about the day was getting the opportunity to see some new ranges up close, and one of those ranges was the fabulous ‘Live Unlimited‘. With fellow blogger Caroline from Curvy Wordy, I had lots of fun examining the range and picking out my favourite pieces.

The Live Unlimited range is now available in store and online for Evans, and I think it is absolutely great. This is such a grown up range, feminine without being girly. This is definitely a collection for those who still like to make monochrome a focal point of their wardrobe – black and white is very prominent in the designs, and where colour and print is utilised, it is still in the darker shades of blue and grey, with snake prints and 60s geometric prints all featuring heavily in the collection.

Take a look at Live Unlimited – what are your thoughts?

A selection of Spring Jeans from Bank Fashion

Whatever the season, whatever the weather, it is safe to say that most of us will still be wearing a pair of jeans in some form. Since the 1950s, when denim moved from being a fabric made for workwear, to a wardrobe staple made cool by the likes of Marilyn Monroe, James Dean and Brigitte Bardot, jeans have become a must have for any woman, worn casually by day, and dressed up by night. And, right at this moment, there are simply so many styles available that we can safely say we are almost in the midst of a denim explosion.

But what jeans to choose? The ladies of the outfit sharing site Avenue 57 are constantly having discussions of the merits of the boyfriend jean, with most believing these are best suited to boyish slim figures. Bootcut have been the jeans of choice for curvy ladies for many years, but recently the tide has been turning on what are sometimes considered mom jeans. Now curvy ladies (me included) are actually embracing skinny and straight leg jeans and finding these can look very stylish on the size 14+ figure. And as for coloured denims, these seem set to stick around for a long time.

You can find a great selection of women’s jeans at Bank Fashion. From skinnies to coloured denim, by way of jeggings and boyfriend jeans, there are just so many great styles to choose from. Plus they have some seriously impressive brands on offer too, sure to please the pickiest of denim connoisseurs.
