Wishlist: prints

I was away in Devon last weekend and for what feels like the first time in ages, the sun was out! I may have been slightly over-optimistic, but I was dreaming of wearing cute prints, pastels, bold shades and outfits without jackets or coats! I've picked out some of my favourite spring time pieces below.

Pastel prints:

I'm really looking forward to wearing cute pastel prints. I love the floral brocade pattern on the skirt and trousers, they're a great way to wear the pastel trend without having to wear solid blocks of colour. I feel like delicate is the way to go with pastels, otherwise I worry that I might end up looking like a giant sweet or something like that. I also like the grey to purple ombre effect on the dress, again it's a slightly more subtle way of wearing both pastels and prints!

Bold prints:

As much as I'm loving pastels, I'm also exciting to start wearing some bolder colours. I'm pretty bad at sticking to my comfort zone in outfit choices, I do like to stick to grey, black, purple and burgundy. But I am hoping to move away from this in spring time and introduce some brighter prints into my wardrobe. I love the kaleidoscope dress from the selection above, it has still got some black in there but it's a nice bold print contrasted with the coral colour, so it counts ;). 

Re-vamping your wardrobe ready for a new season can be pretty tough on your purse, so check out NetVoucherCodes for fashion and footwear discounts.

What are you looking forward to in Spring? Will you be choosing the pastel or bold prints? x
