Sweet as candy

Pastel shades are definitely one of the biggest trends for Spring/Summer 2010. Ice cream colours are so perfect for spring and summer, they are fresh, cool and oh so pretty! They also look great on both tanned and fair skin, with blonde or brunette hair. But best of all they look great in my favourite material.. chiffon! I can't wait to get my hands on some beautiful pastel coloured pieces for the next season.
So although there's no way I could afford any of them heres my pick of the best catwalk looks in sugary shades...

Adam - Gorgeous materials and prints.

Burberry - Those skirts are gorgeous and I'm going to be looking everywhere for a coat like that.

Calvin Klein - I love oversized tees and the neckline is amazing.

Christopher Kane - Gingham prints are really big for ss10 too - I love combining trends :)

Dior - Gorgeous dress and the hair and make-up is so beautiful

Giles - Love the safari print and colours of this dress.

Louis Vuitton - How amazing are those afros?! The babydoll dress is cute too :)

Louise Goldin - I'm loving the one colour head to toe

Luella - It's such a shame that theres no more Luella, this was their best season yet :)

Marchesa - The colour, detail and cut are exquisite!

Marni - With looks like this you can see why Marni is my favourite label.

Michael Kors - As much as I hate him as a person, his dresses are such classics

Moschino - I want this whole look!

Mulberry - Neon pastel??

Nicole Farhi - Perfect shape and colour for summer

Thakoon - Love the colour combination

Tommy Hilfiger - THE jumpsuit for the season

Valentino - Pretty as a petal, and those shoes!! WOW!

Viktor&Rolf - Directional madness LOVE IT!

Ankle Envy

I've always really really loved ankle boots, such a great way to give an edge to simple outfits. So I was really pleased to see them come into fashion so much this winter. I was kind of surprised to see so many stars wearing ankle boots on the red carpet but they do look so awesome with bare legs too! This will mean they can stay for spring (and the British summer) too :)
So here are a few celebs rocking the bare legged ankle boots look...

Although I'm sometimes a bit skeptical of SJP's fashion choices I really love those white boots with gold studs there are some very similar available from ASOS here and they're only £20!!!!

Katy Perry showing us that we can do smart looks with ankle boots.. and I lovelovelove the dress and bag too!!! (oh and off the subject, but how cute are her and Russell?!)

Alexa looking amazing as usual and giving the cute floral dress a rock edge with lace up ankle boots.

 I always love Leighton's style! In the first look the sexy dress is completed in a demure but rock'n'roll way with the purple suede ankle boots. In the next look the casual outfit is totally set off by the AMAZING Louboutin boots (which I have been lusting over for a looooong time now!).

90210 star Jessica Stroup matches the black and gold in the shift dress to her cutecutecute ankle boots.

I'm really sorry it's taken so long to get this post out! Mad times at work and so many other things going on have made my life pretty crazy! But I promise that my blog posts will be more regular from now on.. and more uptodate than the winter trends!
A few things I'm obsessed with at the moment are: Bones! aah my friend bought my the box sets for xmas and I've just watched them back-to-back non stop! It's such a good programme and Booth being so hot definitely helps :). Also Laura Marling is such an amazing singer songwriter (gorgeous style too!) so check out her myspace here. Obviously my ebay obsession continues but no mega bargains lately.
So I need a little help from all you fashionistas, I have pretty long hair now and I'm thinking about have it really short again a little like Jessica Stroup's in the pic above but messier and with more layers and a bit of a wave. I had short hair a few years ago and hated it at the time but when I look back at pictures I think it looks a lot better than it does long so I'll let you lot decide..
My hair now...

aand when it was short...

So let me know what you think :) and dont forget to follow me on twitter here.
