This week, I’ve been mostly loving:
- Shift dresses and tunics – These dresses are a complete win-win. The voluminous effect makes them hugely comfy, and the simple shape means they’re the ideal base for some large statement necklaces. Ace! Dress by Toast.
- Patterned kitchenware – I love a good print in the kitchen – all stacked up together to create some sort of crockery chaos. Cup and bowl by Marimekko.
- Quirky neckware – Since my craft swap with Davina, I’ve got all obsessed with colourful, quirky necklaces – I’ve been seeking out laser cut lovelies and anything in a rainbow hue. Necklace from Accessorize and crochet bow from Lowie.
- Books, books and more books – I’ve signed up to a Goodreads challenge – 100 books in a year, what was I thinking?! – so every spare minute has been spent reading feverishly.
- Colourful knits – I’m not sure whether it’s a reaction to the endless grey days, but I seem to be drawn to the brightest clothes at the moment – I’ve been wearing my neon jumper to death, mixing it up with coloured tights and my mustard coat. Screw you, grey skies, I’m wearing a rainbow! Jumper by Joules.
- Doc Martens – I found a pair of the bog standard lace up shoes on eBay a few months back (absolute bargain at £8.99 – they’d only been worn once, and still had the labels inside!), but my parents treated me to a lovely pair of navy boots for my birthday. They haven’t been off my feet since – forget the myths about Docs being hard to break in, these are like wearing slippers. Chunky slippers, but still! Doc Martens from Office.
- Block colours – On scarves, dresses, bedding, cushions – I just seem to be drawn to great colour combinations! Scarf by Marimekko.
- Yarn – Yarn could probably appear on almost every one of these lists; if we go to a craft shop, I always gravitate towards the woolly section, and I’ve got a stash that would makes Hobbycraft look like Poundstretcher (which, incidentally, has a great selection of yarn in fairly nice colours!). I’ve been playing with some Wool and the Gang and Boodles textile yarn, and researching tapestry crochet – the possibilities for creating geometrics is endless. Hurrah! Yarn by Wool and the Gang
This isn’t one of those sponsored posts, by the way – I just love stuff!
