Having a moment: Paradise Prints

It’s seconds away from May and the promise of a fabulous Summer is on the horizon (OK it snowed this week but we’re ignoring that) with payday around the corner I’ve been compiling a Summer wish list ready for holidays, a fun social calendar and well, just because! I’m known in fabulous for my colour aversion but something has happened this season and my eye is drawn to vibrant palettes and busy prints. I love the combination of bright flora and forna in watercolour strokes and neon shades, I’ve decided I’m a convert – and I’m calling it paradise prints, because I’m not a ‘floral’ person!

On my lust list…

It all started with this watch from Ice – I love it!

Then after wondering what the brands from my teen years were up to, I re-visited Warehouse, and boy am I glad I did. My wedding guest wardrobe will solely be from them this year as well as many a holiday outfit!

We’ve been working with our friends from Mercy this season, and we love their Druzy Rocks collection. I love the lustre of the crystals, they’re the perfect way to add a splash of colour to your look and the beautiful card they come on looks great in my jewellery box!

There’s no better way to brighten up your bedroom than a fabulous set of bedding (you know you’re getting older when a duvet cover is as exciting as a new pair of shoes!) I love this one from BHS, £65 for Superking

“When I’m dressed smartly or heading out for dinner, I love my CK Equal watch in Rose Gold, as it’s a stylish watch with an art deco look, that works well for a more dressy occasion. I’ve got several pieces of Rose Gold jewellery now, which go really well with this design.”

“For a more casual look, I’ve got one of last year’s bestselling Radley watches – the cream leather strap with the cut-out Scottie Dog on the face, in pinks and lilacs. It’s a great look that combines a fun design with Summer colours, perfect for this time of year.”

“Whenever I can, I head down to Cornwall for a weekend, to enjoy the relaxed feeling of life by the sea. We enjoy heading out on a speedboat for a few hours, anchoring up at a waterside pub, and generally taking it easy. I haven’t yet got the perfect watch for this, but the new Ice Slims with their silicon straps and 100m water resistance would be great for when I’m jumping on and off the boat, tying us up to moorings. The Sky Blue Pink one is on my must-buy-for-Summer list!”

“I absolutely love Swatch and I think this Skin design makes the perfect sports watch. I wear mine when I am training at the gym as it is such a light watch I hardly even notice I am wearing it! I also love wearing this watch on casual days in the park enjoying the sunshine with my gorgeous nephews!”

“I wear my Radley watch during the day as I find it quite casual; however it is the kind of watch that you can dress up in the evening. As I wear a lot of black and dark colours I thought a cream watch was just perfect. With summer fast approaching this cream stitch watch design makes the perfect accessory with a lovely flowery print (I might even be tempted to buy it in another colour too!) This watch was the perfect accessory for my Godson’s christening, the subtle tones went perfectly with my dress!”

“Being a Radley fan it’s only right that I own a design that I can wear in the evenings. This white, pink and grey bubble watch is the perfect evening watch as it fits just like a bracelet and looks great with a little black dress! This watch also features rose gold plating which compliments the pastel colours perfectly.”

“When I go out in the evening with my friends, I like to wear this Kenneth Cole watch. I love the understated glamour of this watch and the glitz of the crystal bezel. Big watches are very fashionable right now and the tortoiseshell effect of this watch is what made it stand out to me.”

“Last Summer, my friends and I went on a camping holiday, which this pink Swatch skin watch was perfect for! This watch is so lightweight that I often forgot I had it on and it was waterproof against the rainy weather. The hot pink colour of this watch is ideal for summer, as bold colours are in fashion right now!”
