Blue checked dress Max & Co SS2013
Easter in London has been unseasonably cold and chilly. Rain, sleet, snow, sunshine and dark clouds, all within one hour seems to be a normal weather pattern this spring. So I gave in and decided to wear my spring dresses with a layer of long sleeved thermos underneath (aren’t we all sick of our winter wardrobe?)
Vichy and gingham checked prints are a Romantique wardrobe staple so I’m loving this season’s graphic square print trend as seen at Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuitton. Just like breton stripes, checks always look fresh and youthful.
Red or Blue? Dress from Max & Co 2013
I had a hard time deciding whether to take the blue dress or the red one. After a lot of time pondering, trying it on again and again and an exasperated mum and shop assistant, I went for the blue dress! What do you think?

Powder pink long leather gloves street style Max & Co
Cool Accessories can really vamp up an otherwise bla outfit. Long, luxurious, buttery soft leather gloves are one of those accessories. As seen in Miu Miu’s Spring Summer 2013 campaign, they look the epitome of elegance, best shown off in coats with three quarter length sleeves.

Miranda Kerr’s butter-wouldn’t-melt sugary laser cut skirt reminds me of decorative paper doilies and 3 o’clock coffee and cake time! One of the most playful trends for next summer 2013. I can’t wait for the temperatures to rise! Miranda teams her white skirt with black pointy Mary Janes, white shirt and white Prada bag. Cute enough to eat. Just the icing is missing!
