Summer fashion trends blog post

Kimonos - I really like the kimono trend. I actually had 3 different styles in my wardrobe last year. Then after a big clear out put them on Ebay and sold them. What a mistake that was! I think they are a great alternative to a regular jacket in the warmer months, as well as being a perfect cover up when you go on holiday by the pool. I do really want to get one (or 2) this summer. This is a trend I probably will partake in. I'm just a fussy mare and need to find the perfect one! 

Birkenstocks - The Birkenstock branded sandals have made a big impact this year. Now I admit, they do look like they would be super comfortable and you don't have to put up with the blisters between your toes like you sometimes get with flip flops. However I have tiny feet (Size 3) and they are also really narrow. I can't help but think that they would just look ridiculous on me! I'm very likely to avoid this particular summer shoe and go for something a little more flattering for my feet! 

Backpacks - You all know I love bags. I probably own far too many than is necessary really. However this summer the backpacks have come back and I am kinda liking them. The highstreet have produced some lovely designs which look a lot more chic than my sporty one I used while I was at school! I have to say my favourite I have seen so far is this blush leather one from Topshop! How dreamy! They are roomy enough to hold all the rubbish I lug around plus, I wont get back ache from it - Anyone else get a bad back when carrying a heavy bag on the crook of their arm?

Which Summer 2014 trends do you like this year?

Much Love,
