It feels like spring is finally here with the sun shining and the weather feeling warmer. I love the sunshine and the summer months, this year I have lots of exciting things planned over the months ahead. One thing is a trip to America which I will be going on soon, I’m heading back to Las Vegas before going over to California for some sunshine and beach time! The shops are now beginning to get their spring/summer collections in stock. This post is a collaboration with Simply Be for their Be Bright and Bold Summer Campaign.
Bright colours and bold prints seem to be the trend for SS16, I’m certainly no fashionista but I’ve seen some of my favourite brands and bloggers sharing brighter colours on social media. There is something fun about a bright and colourful outfit – It can improve your mood, confidence and of course you can look good too!
I chose a few items to wear over the summer months and they will certainly be going in my case to wear on my trip. The first item I got from Simply Be was these Printed Crinkle Shorts. I matched them with a plain back vest I already had – For this look I think the shorts are so striking the rest of the outfit needs to be minimalist. I can see me wearing these on the beach at Santa Monica! I love the pattern – Not something I would often go for but I wanted to go for items a little out of my comfort zone.
Next I ordered this Chiffon Skater Dress. It’s lightweight and floaty which makes it perfect to wear when going for a nice meal in the evening. I like the long sleeves as a contrast to the shorter length of the skirt. It feels fun and carefree to wear!
My final choice is a bright and bold dress – This Peplum Hem Crepe Dress. The material is lightweight, making it ideal for the warmer weather. I am going to a conference for the beginning of my trip so I will certainly wear this then, I think it will look good on the strip in Vegas.
Getting some new clothes is making me even more excited for my trip and the summer months ahead. This spring and summer time why not try something new and go bright and bold in your style choices. Next I need the tanned skin to match the summer vibe!
