Pretty Prints

Last week I posted about Heaton’s AW13 Collection. I uploaded an image of my favourite dress from their latest range, the birdcage printed dress.

I drove over to their Newtonabbey store and purchased it for the bargain price of £15. It’s such a comfortable dress and a style that I’ve never really worn before. I love investing in new looks and spicing up my wardrobe.

I’ve taken a close up photo of the dress so you can all see the pretty print. It has quite a vintage feel to it.

Hope you all like it.

Heaton’s AW13 Collection

A few months back, I featured my trip to Heatons in Newtonabbey to check out their SS13 collection. It’s hard to believe that summer is almost over and the time to welcome the AW13 styles has come. Now, I have to admit, I’m the kind of girl who loves the autumn/winter time of year. There’s nothing better than getting home to light the fire on a  dark night.

The lovely Brittany sent me out the lookbook for Heatons AW13 collection and I was pleasantly surprised with how chic and reasonably priced the range was. I’ve hand picked my favourite dresses, coats and trousers from the lookbook, and I’m going to give all of my lovely readers a sneak peak.

I want to kick start the collection with my favourite item, the birdcage dress. As soon as I set eyes on this gorgeous number, I had to have it. And indeed I did. On Saturday, I took a trip over to Newtonabbey and purchased this little baby. ( I’ll upload an image of me wearing it in a different post.) Everything about this dess is perfect. From the length to the fit and of course, the gorgeous print.

I don’t about you lovely people, but, I’ve noticed a drop in the temperature. Yes, on the odd day it can still feel a little calamy, but most days, it’s a chilly one. I have my own red coat that is quite similar to this one. Red is the perfect colour to wear during the Autumn/Winter months as it helps brighten up your look. Paired with a stylish scarf and you’re onto a winner.

I showed you all the birdcage dress, now it’s time to take a look at this stunning maroon feather print dress. Prints are honestly one of my favourite styles, particularly on ladylike dresses. It’s perfect for work, shopping or you can transform it into a night time look. Another pretty detail is the pockets, I love how pockets give any item of clothing an elegant and chic feel.

As I said earlier, I made a visit over to Heaton’s to have a look at their SS13 collection. I purchased a pair of print trousers and an embellished jumper. You can view the post here. They’ve now created an updated and Autumn inspired pair that are just stunning. Purple is one of my favourite colours, and I absolutely love it on these trousers.

Mustard is one of those colours that only some people can wear. It all depends on your skin tone and the shade of mustard you opt for. I have to say though, this mustard and floral skirt is the perfect combination on a cool Autumn day.

This look is chic at its best. I love the double colour clash combined with prints and peep toe ankle boots. It’s a strong look and perfect for when you mean business.

Hope you’re all having a great week and enjoyed your bank holiday weekend! ♥

#OOTD

I wore this outfit a few weeks back for a day of cocktails with a friend and I thought I’d upload it. It was such a comfortable look to wear and I still felt dressed up at the same time. I wanted to let the design of the trousers stand out, so I paired it with a neutral top and shoes. The colourful accessories help add a pop of colour to my top. Hope you all like it! 🙂

Heatons SS13 Collection

As the start of May involved a lot of horrible showers and the thought of summer was non-existent, I braved the wet weather and headed to Heatons to shop up a spring/summer storm. The lovely Brittany had asked me if I would be interested in heading over to their Newtonabbey store to have a look at their SS13 collection.

As soon as I entered the store, I was greeted with an explosion of bright colours, luxurious fabrics and the freshest prints around. As I do enjoy my shopping sprees a little too much, I feel that you can never have enough clothes, shoes or accessories and went into the store with a mission to update my spring/summer wardrobe.

image

I was immediately drawn to a fabulous pair of floral crop trousers that I knew I had to have. The rich shades of green, cream and coral are the perfect addition for my wardrobe.

image

I love the length of them, they sit perfectly on my ankle which makes it easier to wear a sandal or ankle boot if I want to mix up the look. They colours running throughout the trousers make it easy to pair them with a large majority of shades.

image

I spotted a pretty peach coloured embellished top that would work beautifully with my new favourite trousers. As soon as I tried them on, I knew I had found a winner!

image

There is no better way to update your look during the spring/summer season than adding a little embellishment into your outfit. It helps to add a touch of sparkle and can immediately transform your look.

image

I wore it the next day with some jeans, a pair of turquoise pumps and statement jewellery. It is such a comfortable piece and looks stylish without have to accessorize it much.

image

I also wore it with my maxi skirt and a pair of converse. It’s one of my favourite sprung/summer pieces. I’ve crossed my legs in this picture just in case you think my feet look funny! 😉

image

What I love most about the top and trouser look, is how I can immediately transform them into different styles for both day and night. The trousers also came in a short form; I tried it on with a plain black tank top, as the colours pop perfectly with it. I’m actually going to go back and buy these as they would be perfect for my holiday in July. They’re light enough to bear the heat, but, not too short. (No one needs to see my bum hanging out!)

Red pretty much appears in every season throughout the year as it can brighten up your winter days and keeps you ahead of the styles stakes during summer. I picked up this pair of red skinny jeans and paired it with a jumper I was already wearing. I like the combination of colours as it doesn’t clash or look as if a rainbow threw up on me. They were soft, which I love! There’s nothing worse than a stiff and uncomfortable pair of jeans. They had a cute gold zip along the ankle for those of you who would like to change it up.

Throughout the collection, polka dots, vibrant colours, exotic prints and just all round affordable fashion was the appeal and attraction from Heatons SS13 collection.
