Last week I did a spot of much needed retail therapy with my mum to Touchwood in Solihull.
I LOVE shopping, in fact I think I'm addicted, but I don't care, because I love fashion and everything about it, as you all probably know by now! I get excited by latest trends and colours, and find it inspiring for my own design work.
On rare occasions when I go shopping, I don't find much that I like but this time, I picked up all these beautiful items and as you can see on a theme of grey and cream. I really like buying items that match so I have an instant outfit and can mix and match in similar colours.
I mainly shopped these items from River Island..of course it's my fave! but my favourite piece is probably the embroidered crop top from New Look. It's so beautiful and bang on trend. I'm obsessed with the embroidery trend at the moment and can't wait to pick up some more pieces next time I go shopping.
Textured dress | River Island
Ribbed style long sleeve top | River Island
Embroidered Long sleeve crop top | New Look
Sleeveless knit tank top | River Island
Chunky Grey grid print scarf | River Island
I'm going to pack these wardrobe staples, for my city break to Barcelona next month and I will for sure be styling them up. I think the ribbed cream top would look lovely under the dress and tank top for a layered look and the embroidered crop top would be fab teamed with a leather skirt for the evening or even dressed down with jeans. Finally I cant wait to wrap up in the chunky knit scarf, perfect as a cover up on a chilly night or for travelling.
Grey and Cream - such a gorgeous colour combo for the summer and winter.
